You know that golden hour skin glow you get in photos and in real life juuust as the sun is setting?
Well, Kosas has captured that
skin-flattering light and popped it into a compact—well, as close as you can get. This latest launch from
the brand that brought you Tinted
Face Oil and Wet Lip Oil
Gloss is a buildable, lightweight baked bronzer that gives skin a wash of silky warmth all over.
It’s created with shea butter and meadowfoam, both of which soothe, soften and moisturise skin while the
subtle shades (three of them) create a dreamy glow. Apply this to all the points of the face that would
normally catch the sunlight: the hairline, bridge of the nose, chin and the upper cheeks.
A fan favourite amongst MECCA staff and customers, this illuminating bronzer (available in four shades)
effortlessly adds depth and dimension for a natural, sun-kissed glow. The sheer, airy formula sweeps on
for a healthy-looking, radiant finish. The beauty of this bronzer from Hourglass is its
photoluminescent technology, which means it never appears flat on the skin, instead it has an illuminating
finish which blends seamlessly. Key ingredients include mica (which is super finely milled for a natural
glow on the skin) and diamond powder (helps hid imperfections and brightens dull skin). If you prefer the
type of bronzer that gives you radiance as well as some sun-kissed colour, then this is one to try.
Recently NARS took the iconic Laguna bronzing powder and gave it a little refresh. But don’t be alarmed
if you’re a diehard fan because it’s still got the perfect hue for effortless contouring, bronzing or even
eyeshadow—it’s just been reformulated to make it even better. There’s a reason this is one of the
most popular bronzers globally: its diffused formula is so finely milled that the finish is always
seamless. It’s buildable, suits just about every skin tone and is infused with tiny flecks of gold to
deliver all over warmth or definition to the face, plus it enhances the look of a natural tan. It also
recently launched in a matte
finish and a mini so you can get
your Laguna fix in more ways than one.
The founder of Too Faced,
Jerrod Blandino, started creating products with cocoa in them after he received a chocolate facial in
Hawaii years ago. In skincare and makeup, the addition of cocoa powder helps to fight free radical damage
thanks to its antioxidant-rich formula—plus it makes the product you’re applying smell delicious!
This bronzer from Too Faced is vegan and has a completely matte finish, making it perfect for contouring
as well as a touch of all over glow if that’s how you like to wear your bronzer. The skin-flattering shade
also works well through the crease of the eye as a transition colour or to give your eye shape some extra
Let’s be honest, we’re all dreaming of an endless summer right now. The next best thing? bareMineral’s natural-looking
bronzer for the sun-kissed glow we all need in our lives. This talc-free formula is brimming with mineral
blurring microspheres that help conceal the appearance of imperfections for a soft finish. Like all of the
brand’s products, this bronzer is mineral-based and a must for anyone that wants fuss-free colour in just
a few swipes.
This buttery bronzer melts into the skin like a dream and imparts the skin with a sunny glow. Pressed
with little love hearts (cute!) and with a silky formula, this bronzer from cool and conscious brand
Westman Atelier is a winning product in more ways than one. It’s infused with cupuacu butter to help
support and encourage skin’s natural collagen production, while cocoa seed helps calm redness and boost
circulation. It’s vegan and has been formulated without any questionable ingredients like parabens,
synthetic fragrances and phthalates. Think of it like an island getaway in a compact.
This skin-balancing tanning mist delivers a hit of hydration while developing a natural-looking glow. All
you need to do is mist it onto skin before your skincare routine and the colour will fully develop over
eight hours to a natural glow. This mist is great for matching the tan on your body to your face, plus
it’s infused with ingredients like coconut oil, Kakadu plum and aloe vera to hydrate, soften and boost
radiance as the colour develops.
Jules Von Hep, the founder of self-tanning brand Isle of Paradise, once told The Memo that: “Not
everyone tans the same way. I believe in a wardrobe of tan choices—Isle of Paradise is for people who
haven’t been comfortable tanning before.” Just like the brand’s entire range, the Self-Tanning Drops
provide easy-to-use colour correcting tanning in the comfort of your own home – think of it as an all-over
night-before bronzer. And if it’s been a while between tanning appointments, these drops are the perfect
way to achieve a subtle glow while you’re laying low at home. The added hydration from avocado and coconut
oil will keep your skin feeling supple while it glows, too. Simply add a few drops to you body or face
You might not have experienced a bronzer like this before, but its one-of-a-kind formula provides the
skin with the perfect wash of sheer, transfer-proof colour. Designed for both the face and body, it’s
quick drying and applies sans streaks—all you have to do is build up the coverage and buff it out for a
holiday-worthy glow. Its key ingredients include red and black tea extracts which protect the skin against
free radical damage whilst providing a longwearing subtle tan. Plus, cold pressed cherry extract helps to
tone and protect skin from the signs of ageing. For the best effect, simply spray the tan directly onto a
big fluffy brush and work in circular motions to evenly distribute over the skin. The Tea To Tan Face Body
can be shaken up before application for a shimmery finish to the skin, or if you don’t shake it the
micro-prisms stay at the bottom of the bottle for a more matte finish.
