My Favorite Bronzers for Pale Skin

non-orange bronzers for fair skin

Sometimes, it can be a little hard finding makeup when you’re a pale girl. One of the hardest things for me has always been finding a good bronzer. Most bronzers are for darker skin tones. They come across on my skin as much too dark, and instead of looking sun kissed I look like I have dirt smudged all over. There’s also a danger of looking too orange, similar to a self tanner.

During the summer, I do often do a very light dusting of bronzer at the end of my makeup routine. I just dust it on to my t-zone, and then my temple, cheek bone and jawbone (here’s a quick tip on where to apply bronzer for a great sunkissed look).

After a lot of trial and error, I’ve found that there are bronzers out there that work for pale girls.
