We all are beach bunnies at heart, but let’s face it, the sun is way too damaging for our sensitive skin.  Instead of bemoaning our lack of glowing color, get smart and get bronzed! Bronzers and highlighters, when used properly give just the right hint of color and contour. Who needs a Caribbean vacation when you have one of these terrific bronzers on hand.

1.Color Of Science gives a radiant glow, packed tight in a sleek compact

Their universally flattering color Santa Fe ($49) is my favorite. This bronzer promises and delivers. Your skin will look luminescent and fresh.


2. L.A. Minerals gives other makeup manufacturers a run for their money

Loose mineral bronzers go the extra mile. This brand gives you various options to achieve your best glow. Doesn’t a bit of Diva Dust ($10) sound like the ticket?  No breakouts, no itching, no nothing but glamorous color and glow.
