Magnificent Matte Bronzers

Last week, I told you about mineral bronzers, which are great for sensitive and acne-prone skin. But if you've got an oily complexion that needs shine control, matte bronzers are the best way to get a sun-kissed look. Made from extremely refined powders, these are long lasting and help to even out your skin tone.

To use, apply them where the sun would normally tan your face. Begin with a light application (they can get heavy fast) to the bridge of your nose, the apples of your cheeks, the top of your cheekbones, and your temples and blend well. They also work great for contouring to create sexy, modelesque cheekbones. Here are a few of my favorites.

Molton Brown Bareface Glow Bronzing Powder is a double-matte but very light bronzer made from extracted waterlily flower and meadowfoam seed oil. These vitamin-packed ingredients help condition your skin and protect it against free radicals. Buy it here for $30. Available in Sunstone (light) and the darker Desertrose.


Physicians Formula Baked Pyramid is a matte bronzer for the masses baked on terracotta tiles. It has this really cool and unique pyramid shape and provides you with a deep and exotic-looking glow. You can apply it wet for a darker finish or dry for a lighter look. Buy it in Baked Tan or Baked Bronze here for $11.95.

To see the last one,

Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess Soft Matte Bronzer is a luxurious powder bronzer with an oil-free base to help keep your skin smooth and even. You can apply it to your face, shoulders, and décolletage for a healthy bronze look. Buy it here for $29.50.
