You can’t get enough of a great contour stick or highlighter, but have you been sleeping on a good ‘ole bronzer? Heads up: A swipe of this beauty product can help you achieve a nice glowy finish. Whether you’re into matte, cream or powder formulas, a bronzer can give you the warm complexion (aka the sun-kissed look) you’re searching for without the mess. Put away the self-tanner and forget about rushing to get the Golden Hour pic because honey, you ARE the golden hour when a bronzer is involved.
