Sarah Barclay, leading beauty editor and columnist shares the latest and greatest ways to give your skin a natural looking sun kissed glow this Summer
“A well chosen and applied bronzer can be a beauty game changer but the wrong one can be a shocker. Whether you want a liquid bronzer, cream or powder is largely a personal choice but if your skin is either combination or oily, opt for a pressed powder. For drier skin, a cream or tinted moisturiser looks more natural.”
Great value and convincingly natural on even fair skin, Bourjois Delice de Poudre Bronzer £7.99
For a full swank factor invest in one of these. The Tom Ford Soleil Large Glow Bronzer £75 looks entirely natural and the generous helping should last a decade.
⭐️ PRODUCT. This utterly brilliant, natural looking, radiance imparting skin pick me up has been around for ions and remains top of the class. Chantecaille Just Skin Tinted Moisturiser SPF 15, £68
Guerlain essentially invented fake tan and bronzing as a cosmetic and their Terracotta range is always a good place to start for a wide choice of quality bronzers. For fair skin hoping for a subtle tan, try Terracotta Light Bronzer, £38
If you want to add a flush of colour as well as sun kissed glow, try Clarins Glow 2 Blush & Highlighting Duo which ticks both boxes. £26
For the crème de la crème of fake tans, turn to Super swish Sisley – their new Self Tanning Hydrating Facial Skin Care gives a gradual natural shade of bronze 24 hours after application. £97
Forgo twinkles and sparkles in bronzer to look naturally tanned rather than spangly. The fabulous Nars make-up range includes Matt Bronzing Powder which is spot on. £31
If you want a hint of colour without looking like you’ve been at the bronzer too enthusiastically, try the clever By Terry Tea to Tan Face & Body. A liquid tan to blend into your skin to give a natural sunkissed glow. £58
