What are bronzers?
For those of you who don’t know (which is unlikely, but just in case) a bronzer is used to enhance tan or emulate a sun-kissed radiance. It can add warm to the skin's natural glow. Bronzers commonly comes in gel, liquid or mineral form.
At Everyday Minerals, we’ve handcrafted our finest bronzers for all skin tone. Here are some of our ladies top favorites:

How to find my right shade?
To get that perfectly natural, post-beach glow, you need the right bronzer shade to match with your skin tone.
Let's start with your skin type. If you have a normal, oily or combination skin, then you and powder bronzers are match-made in heaven. Normal to dry skin complexion glows best with cream bronzers. For breakout-prone skin, choose liquid and gel bronzers but stay away from sparkly options.
The tricky part is choosing the perfect shade. You want a shade that has an undertone that suits with your skin colour to get that natural look. If you have a warm undertone, golden brown shades looks amazing to your skin. For yellow undertones, warm peach shades with soft brown undertone is your best friend. Neutral and beige skin undertones glows beautifully in bronzers that have a few shades darker than their skin tone.
How is it applied?
Picking the right bronzer shade is very essential. Too much of it can make your skin look grungy and the wrong color will appear like an ugly smudge.
Do the basics of your makeup routines first: sunscreen, moisturizing, liquid concealers and foundation. If you are going to use blush, do it after you applied your bronzer.
- Pick a bronzer shade that is 2 or 3 shades darker than your complexion. Remember this. The key to apply the product gradually until you achieve the desired glow.
- Swipe your favorite brush into your bronzer, apply product anywhere in your face where the sun would normally hit your face. These are your temples, forehead, chin and cheekbones
- Add a bit more of the product until you reach that sun-kissed glow
If you are using gel or liquid bronzers, use your fingertips to dot and blend the product.
Brushes for bronzers
With the right brush, you can ensure that your bronze is well-blended and beautifully applied. The right brush depends on your bronzer’s formula and were you apply the product. For example, our Angled Brush, Tapered Sculpting Face Brush, and Blender Face Brush are perfect for mineral bronzers. A rounded head brush (such as the Baby Flat Top) is the right match for a matte bronzer. Always use a clean brush when applying bronzer for optimal results. If you use a brush that has been used by multiple products, it will alter the bronzer's shade.
Bronze away ladies! Enjoy more fun days under the sun and sand.
