Beauty Blogger Top 10: Get Your Glow On!

Purchased by Me Sent For Review Affiliate Links

I'm pale and proud of it, so faux glowing is important! I only use self-tanner once in a while, but do love to use bronzers, depending on the look I'm going for. Here are my favorite bronzers for different situations. Did your favorite make the list?

1. Beautisol is the best self-tanner on the market. I'm not the only one who thinks so.

2. tarte Golden Opportunity Tan-To-Go Kit gives you mini sizes of their self tanner and beautiful bronzer in Park Ave. Princess. It's a steal at $10 and great to throw in your beach bag for golden touch-ups at the boardwalk!

3. Estee Lauder's Heat Wave, if you can still find it, is worth the search. It gives serious sheen and will make your cheek bones come alive under the sun.

4. Buxom's Hot Escapes Tahiti Bronzer gives a nice shimmer and glow, plus it smells like vacation.

5. It Cosmetics Vitality Glow Anti-Aging Matte Bronzer w/Fan Brush is perfect for pale women (or men). It's big enough to use on your entire body and will never leave you looking muddy. I love it because it gives me a touch of color. If you want a lot of color, skip to #6.

6. Dalton Golden Pearl Bronzer with Luxe Brush gives a deeper glow that is great for matching your face to your chest, if you're no longer the same color from rooter to tooter. It's not just brown, it's more like a real tan, with a tiny bit of pink undertones. It's great for all over as well!

7. Need to fake it all over your body and fast, for the day only? Beautisol's Tea Tan Glow is exactly what you're looking for.

8. COVER FX Garnet is a great find if you want a glow that looks naturally on the red side, with a touch of mica for sparkle.

9. Sonia Kashuk has the prettiest Chic Luminosity Bronzer/Blush duo. Her bronzers are always a combo of magical light and bronze. It's a great find at a drugstore price.  Bonus! You get a universal blush!

10. Laura Mercier Bonne Mine Palette is a great choice to give your face a lovely glow. Even better, 100% of the profits are donated to the Laura Mercier Ovarian Cancer Fund!

  1. I almost bought the Sonia Kashuk the last time I was at Target. There was one left. Then I put it back. *kicks self in rear*

  2. I stumbled upon Tarte bronzers a few years back and actually love them. I was surprised because it looked quite orange in the pan. I'm very curious about Cover FX too!

  3. Beautisol must love us today! :) That bronzer from IT Cosmetics looks amazing!!!

  4. OK. 3rd endorsement for the Tea Tan and 2nd for the Sonia Kashuk...I need both of these now! Great List!

  5. I almost pulled the trigger on the SK blush/bronze duo but it looked kinda scary--If Gouldylox can do it so can I!

  6. What a beautiful group of bronzers. I wonder if I should try a little harder. Lisa from my blog loves the It Cosmetics one. I almost always have her review any bronzers but maybe I should try for a change.

  7. Nice list! I guess Beautisol is almost universally loved!

  8. Great list! I really need that LM palette for traveling.

  9. I so want to try that SK Bronzer/Blush!

  10. That Sonia Kashuk looks really pretty!!!!
