Sometimes you want a trusty matte bronzer to warm up your complexion. But then there are days when you want your bronzer to do be a little extra. OK, a lot extra. That’s where glossy bronzers come into play. These luminous glow-boosters literally leave behind a wet, glossy finish. We’re talking about the type of finish that will look gorgeous on your collarbone or blended into your contours and temples. Ahead, we rounded up six glossy bronzers that will give you definition and glow in just a few swipes.
NYX really hit it out of the park with this brand new California Beamin’ bronzer. Although it’s a powder, this bronzer is so creamy that it allows you to swipe it on in just one go and creates a high-shine finish.
Self-tanning serums can act as the perfect glossy bronzer for your entire body, which is why we’re obsessed with Sublime Serum. The formula lasts for days, so you won’t need to worry about reapplying it, and it leaves you sparkling with a shimmer of gold.
For a shimmery body bronze that smells like literal coconuts, try the Copacabana Bronze Glow Oil. This super-pigmented oil blends seamlessly into the skin and leaves behind a bronze sparkle wherever it’s applied.
