Do You Wear Bronzer in Winter?

Summer is definitely the most common season to see self-tanners flying off the shelves, but bronzer never seems to go out of style for some celebs (like Jennifer Lopez). Just because the real sun is hidden away in Winter, doesn't mean you can't still get your faux glow on and looked like you just leapt from May into December. Do you keep up a bronzer habit in months without sun or do you kick it to the curb come cold weather times?

runningesq, I'm with you. I put on a dash of warmth by bare essentuals. It helps me to not look so washed out.

no, only bronze cream sometimes, on my cheeks.. tan and/or dark skin doesn't suit me at all, that's what I had to learn through the years

I never wear "coloring agents" on my face. Just some powder to get rid of the t-zone shine. It's weird though. I have olive skin, but, while I'm nice and tan in the summer, the minute mid-October rolls around, I get really pale. This never happened when I was a kid, so I don't know how or when it started. I guess it's because I refuse to go outside once the temp. drops under 50 F. But it's okay. I like my city pallor! It makes me feel wintry.

I'm another white white white girl--I have to use self-tanner in the winter or I will be paper white! I love the new light formulas like Jergens or Olay. I also dust bronzer on forehead, temples, bridge of the nose and checkbones. It also helps slim my round face!

I like bronzer and if I could figure out how to make it look good on me, I would wear it no matter the season.

I use just a bit of powder bronzer on the cheeks during the winter. Looks better on my skintone than blush, but gives a similar "I'm alive!" effect.

Bronzer pretty much everyday in the summer and once-in-a while for the winter...I just stick to a peachy blush! Jennifer looks amazing!!

Absolutely. I use Clinique's loose powder bronzer. I've been a fan of it for years and wear it all the time, no matter what the season. I think bronze skin looks especially beautiful with winter white clothing :) I just bought GlowFusion the other day, but haven't tried it yet... I've heard good things about it though.

YSL bronzer warms up my skin all through winter - you can't beat that with a bat!

If it weren't for Benefit's Hoola I'd be walking around looking like Casper in the winter months. I love the stuff.. I just hit pan this morning and got a little panicked, and googled it to make sure it's not discontinued! But it's one of their best sellers so it's probably here to stay. I don't see a reason to stop wearing bronzer as soon as the weather gets cold... Obviously you have to use less of it and apply it with a light hand so it looks more natural.

I've never worn bronzer before, but my mom does. Maybe I'll try it this summer, but it seems wrong for winter.

I don't stop wearing bronzer just because the weather is colder. I just ease up on it, or I get a lighter shade. Sometimes a lightly sunkissed look during the winter looks good and healthy.

I do wear it year round. It just looks more healthy and makes me feel better.

Definitely. I am all about using a matte bronzer to contour along with my highlighter. ALL ABOUT IT!

No way - bronzer just makes me look like a china doll with a grubby face.

i'm biracial -- my daddy gave me year round bronzer the natural way. :) but i live in MI so when i'm feeling extra pale I may use a little powder bronzer just to liven up the face a little.

Don't need it... I blush naturally on my high cheeks.

I have REALLY pale skin, so as long as I take it easy on the bronzer I'll pull it on here and there when I think my skin needs a bit of perking up.
