7 Bronzers that you will love!

Updated: Mar 15

Beautiful, sun kissed skin, we all want it. Whether it is the dead of winter or a boiling hot summer, we all strive for that "just spent a day in the sun" look. If you are the palest of the pale or have the deepest of skin tones, we all have one thing in common, the hunt for the perfect bronzer. You would think this task would be easy, given the endless amount of options, but the struggle is real. Your bronzer is either to warm, to cool, to light, to dark or basically the same shade as you so it does nothing and the list goes on and on. In this post I will be sharing my tried and true bronzers, products that I personally use and keep in my pro kit.
