- Substitute a light coral or baby pink blush. Light but bright shades make you look like you're glowing from within, and they define without the heavy look that bronzer sometimes gives.
- To give your skin a soft glimmer, try a creamy highlighter like MAC Lustre Drops ($18.50). Your skin will get the same flattering light diffusion effect it would with bronzer, but without the opacity, so your own skin tone shines through.
- To make skin look soft and supple, mix a couple drops of oil in with your moisturizer. I love argan oil for my face, but avocado and neem are great, too.
- If you like powder, but just don't like the color of bronzer, try a luminizing powder, like Tokidoki Luminosa Powder ($22) which is a sheer, universally flattering light pink instead of orange-y.
