Bronzer for fair skin
There are some things that beauty lovers can be sure of when it comes to Bronzer. They are not supposed to make your skin look orange or ashy. If you have fair-skinned skin, finding the best Bronzer that matches your skin tone can be challenging. Since I have fairer skin than most people, I asked two celebrity makeup artists for their recommendations on the best bronzers to use. Their picks are excellent.
It’s awful to swipe on a bronzer you thought would work and realize it must be lighter and transparent. Some undertones need to be considered. The warm color that looks great on a friend might clash with your rosy skin tone and vice versa. Celebrity makeup artist Lilly Keys, the woman behind Olivia Rodrigo’s ’90s-inspired Glossier look at the 2022 GRAMMY Awards as well as Emma Chamberlain’s glam for the 2022 Vanity Fair Oscars After Party, prefers to use “sheer and light shades,” but it can be challenging to determine which shade of Bronzer is best for you.
How to Choose the Best Bronzer for Fair Skin
The Fenty Beauty Global Makeup artist Priscilla Ono told me via email that “generally speaking, your bronzer should be one or two shades darker than the surface tone” (or skin tone).
If you need help choosing between the shades, start with a sheer powder or liquid Bronzer. If you’re overwhelmed by the sheer number of shades, try a powder or liquid Bronzer that can be worn under your foundation. You don’t have to worry about creating cheekbone shadows or chiseling them now. If you’re looking for a contouring guide, the Marie Claire editors have compiled a list of tips.
How to Choose the Best Bronzer Undertone
When you find a shade that suits you, think about your undertone, just like with foundation. Ono says that this could be neutral, cool, or warm. Fenty Beauty brands group their undertones and shade ranges together, so it is easy to choose the right one.
Ono suggests that if you are unsure of your undertone, look at the veins on your arm. If your veins are blueish, then you have a cooler undertone. If they’re greener, you have a warmer undertone.
What shades work with which undertones?
Ono says that cool undertones go well with peach shades or soft browns. Warm undertones look great with golden browns; neutral undertones can be used with more brown-based colors.

The Best Bronzers For Fair Skin
Physicians Formula Butter Bronzer
The formula may be available at a low price, but it feels luxurious. The procedure is smooth and doesn’t leave any patches on the skin. It gives off a gorgeous bronzed glow. This Bronzer gives me a tan look, even though I have a fair complexion that tends to be on the rosy side. It also smells fantastic.
Fenty Beauty Instant Warmth Sun Stalker Bronzer
Fenty Beauty Sun Stalkers Instant Warmth bronzer is my favorite, and it’s Rihanna too! Sun Stalk’r is my favorite Bronzer because it’s easy to apply and doesn’t streak. It’s also long-lasting and transfer-resistant. “But most importantly, it works on…everyone,” Ono says. Rihanna has created nine versatile shades that bring out the warmth in any skin tone, whether the lightest or the darkest. The goal is not to create a strong contour but to add warmth and dimension to your skin.
Benefit Hoola Bronzer
It’s the first Bronzer I bought for myself, and I use it daily. It is available in four shades, including the original. It has a matte finish and a neutral undertone for seamless blending. It looks very neutral on my skin. It was used to contour my cheekbones in high school. I found it great for adding warmth as well.
