Beauty Picks of the Month: June

Since summer is finally arriving, we decided to do this months beauty post on our favorite bronzers! For me, bronzer's are a must have for all year round, but especially during the sunny summer months! Bronzer's are such a versatile product when it comes to beauty because they are multi-functional, and can sometimes create wonders!

Nars Bronzing Powder in 'Laguna'

Hands down the best bronzer out there! It has a slight shimmer which is only noticeable when it counts! Its highly pigmented but it can also be brushed on with a larger powder or blush brush to be more subtle for an all over glow. Perfect for contouring the cheeks and temple, and its very long lasting and not splotchy at all!

Urban Decay Baked Bronzer in 'Gilded'

This is a great bronzer when you want a noticeable glow to your skin! Its easy to blend and it's not too pigmented, so you can easily build color to your liking. Its a great bronzer for summer because of the gold shimmer effect, and it pairs nicely with peachy toned blushes!

Chanel Soleil Tan (one color fits all)
This is the most innovative product out of the bunch! Its a creamy bronzer that fits any skintone! It blends miraculously and its also matte so it is great for contouring and creating dimension. Its easily build able also, and best applied with a flat blush or bronzing brush so no splotchiness or streaking occurs.

Tarte Matte Waterproof Bronzer

If your planning on spending a lot of time at the beach, this waterproof bronzer might just be your magic trick! I find that this bronzer works best with warmer tone skin because it can come off a bit ruddy if you apply too much. It says its matte, but I found that it does have a really slight shimmer to it. A great travel product to pack on your summer vacay!

Keep an eye on: MAC Hey Sailor! Pro Longwear Bronzing Powder

This bronzer was just released and there's been great reviews on it! Ive never tried any of MAC's bronzers before but Im really intrigued by this one. Its supposed to go on super duper smooth and last all day long. A good bronzer is actually hard to come by, so if you get a chance to snag this one before its sold out (limited edition) I suggest giving it a go!

What are some of your favorite bronzers? I would love to hear other suggestions!
