We love the sunkissed look, but with the potential damage sunbathing can cause, it’s less than ideal — so harness the power of quick and easy bronzers to get your glow on this season. Instead of traditional powders, reach for creamy, warm-toned liquids that’ll make your complexion look more luminous in a snap. Scoop up one of these products and dab it on with your fingertips, a brush, or a makeup sponge. No one ever has to know it came from a bottle.
1. NARS Laguna Liquid Bronzer ($40): Everyone’s favorite universal powder bronzer now comes in liquid form, making it easy peasy to blend over liquid foundation, or just pop on your bare skin for a glow.
2. Giorgio Armani Maestro Liquid Summer Bronzer SPF 15 ($64): Combining a beautiful bronze luminescence, sun protection, and an award-winning texture, Armani’s Maestro liquid bronzer gives you all the sun-kissed goodness in just a drop.
3. It Cosmetics Your Skin But Better CC+ Bronzer ($38): We love a makeup product that adds skincare-benefiting ingredients to its formula. This multitasking liquid bronzer will work to give you a perf beach babe look, but also guards against the sun, evens out skin texture, and gives major hydration.
