The 2 Best Bronzers You’ll Ever Need!

Oh boy, do I need a tan! I have been relying on bronzers lately to add a bit of colour back in to my skin. I have only started using them in the past twelve months, but I believe I have already found the 2 best bronzers you’ll ever need.

I feel like there’s a skill to using to bronzers which I’ve yet to get the hang of but both Benefit’s Hoola and Liz Earle Radiant Glow Bronzer are so simple to use, it easy to achieve the natural, tanned, streak-free look.

Bronzers can be difficult to get right but to narrow it down, it’s easiest to start with which finish you’d prefer. I like matte but I also like Shimmer, so I’ve got one of each! Hoola by Benefit is matte finish and the Liz Earle Radiant Glow Bronzer has a slight shimmer.

I really couldn’t pick whittle is down to my ultimate favourite between the two because they both have different qualities, and I’m going to so much use out of them over the Spring and Summer time!

Hoola by Benefit*, £24.50

Hoola is a single tone, matte finish bronzer which comes in one shade. When I first opened it, I was put off by how dark it looks but if you’re not too heavy handed with it, it will pick up just the right amount of powder enough to give your face a lovely sun-kissed look.

There isn’t a bad word to say about Benefit’s Hoola, the UK’s number 1 best-selling bronzing powder and I can see why.  However, the only negative thing I will say about it is that I prefer powders to be in circular packaging so it’s a bit annoying that the box is square. It comes with a brush which is a rectangular shape which is great for contouring, but I can’t use it properly when I’m applying the powder all over my face, it doesn’t go on as evenly as I’d like. But I am really just nitpicking with these two points, it doesn’t detract from the fact that this is a great bronzer!

Liz Earle Radiant Glow Bronzer*, £19.50

If you prefer something with a bit of shimmer, then look no further! Liz Earle have created THE MOST PERFECT BRONZER!

That’s quite a claim, right?!

I’m someone who tends to stay away from shimmery powders but the Radiant Glow Bronzer adds a gentle highlighting effect without it being overly sparkly. I’ve been using this recently, just a couple of sweeps over my face to put some colour back in to it!

It a silky powder which blends evenly. With four tones, this bronzer is suitable for fair skin because the overall shade is well-balanced. It’s a really nice, subtle powder that’s  buildable and at £19.50, it’s a few quids cheaper than Benefit’s Hoola too. I highly recommend this to anyone, it is really lovely product!

    These look lovely and I just started using a bronzer a few months back myself. I really want to try Hoola next as my next bronzer.

    Gorgeous picks, I really love Hoola it’s such a lovely bronzer for the Spring/Summer and very fuss free 🙂 I do really like Laura Mercier baked bronzers also as they come quite pale so suit my skintone 🙂
