If you want to achieve a natural glow but don’t live in a perpetually sunny location (don’t get us started on those harmful UVA and UVB rays), then it’s time to turn your attention to bronzing sticks. Unlike powdered bronzers, bronzing sticks are creamy in texture and melt into your skin for the ultimate lit-from-within radiance. They’re great for adding color and warmth to the complexion, mimicking where the sun would naturally hit the skin. And thanks to their hydrating textures and easy-to-blend formulas, bronzing sticks deliver a seamless natural-looking brilliance to even the most lackluster of complexions. Simply apply the bronzer directly onto the skin wherever you need a touch of soft, just-back-from-the-beach color, and use your fingertips (or a bronzer brush) to gently buff it in for a seamless finish.
