I use bronzer every day to warm up my skin tone and overall makeup look, but when it comes to the summer months, I use more bronzer to add a sun-kissed look to my skin. I depend on different bronzers to give me a different look, depending on the rest of my makeup or the occasion. These are the best 10 bronzers for summer, including the best new bronzers for 2017.
1. NARS Sun Wash Diffusing Bronzer - The new Sun Wash Diffusing Bronzer defies the conventional bronzer in every which way — it captures natural light though it has a matte finish AND it diffuses imperfections to leave skin with a soft focus finish. Read my complete review here.
2. Hourglass Ambient Lighting Bronzer - This new bronzer illuminates the skin with the brands Photoluminescent Technology. With that and beautiful bronze pigments, this bronzer delivers a sunkissed glow that is believable and natural looking.
3. IT Cosmetics Confidence in Your Glow Palette - These new palettes add brightening, radiance and a bronzed glow with one sweep of the brush. PLUS, the bronzer, blush and highlighter palette is chock full of good-for-your-skin ingredients, like all of the IT Cosmetics product line. Free of shimmer and glitter, there are three radiance enhancing and subtle bronzing palettes in the lineup: Nude Glow, Natural Glow and Warm Glow. Use the Heavenly Skin One Sweep Wonder Brush for perfect application.
4. bareMinerals Invisible Bronze Powder Bronzer - For a natural-looking, healthy glow, this silky, ultra-fine baked bronzer is perfection. Made to flatter all skin tones, this bronzer features a radiant finish that leaves skin with a gorgeous glow.
5. BECCA Sunlit Bronzer - With five shades for every skin tone, this neutral bronzer gives skin a beautiful, healthy looking warmth. Each shade features BECCA's Shimmering Skin Perfector for that has a silky texture and subtle shimmer.
6. Physicians Formula Murumuru Butter Bronzer - This soft focus bronzer feels buttery soft as it glides on the skin. It has a bit of a pearl finish to it but it only leaves a soft, radiant bronzed glow to the skin. It is my newest favorite drugstore bronzer.

7. Lancôme Belle De Teint Mosaic Palette - This palette makes it easy when wanting to do more than bronze. This blush and bronzer palette combines the perfect bronze and blush shades that when swirled together gives skin a beautiful, summer bronzed glow.
8. Milk Makeup Matte Bronzer - This universally flattering bronzing stick adds a touch of bronze to the skin. What I like about this one is that it is matte so it is very natural looking as soon as it touches the skin.
9. Benefit Cosmetics Hoola Lite Bronzer - If you like Benefit's Box of Powders, particularly Hoola, but the shade was a bit too dark for you, Hoola Lite is what you want. Not only is this bronzer lighter in color and great for lighter skin tones, this bronzer is matte, so it looks more natural on the skin, too.
10. Laura Mercier J'adore Le Soleil Matte Veil Powder - This weightless bronzing powder is super natural on the skin. It is another matte bronzer that brushes onto the skin and looks very natural. It is a bronzer that looks beautiful on all skin tones as it blends out flawlessly.
