Bronzers are my most beloved makeup item. I´m actually pretty pale on my face when I take my makeup off in the night. I do not like self tanners because of the smell- but bronzers! I love them! So today I like to present you my 5 favorite cruelty free bronzers from the drugstore!

The Sonia Kashuk Bare Minimum Pressed Powder Bronzer is super gorgeous. The big "S" on it gives a golden glow without looking fake. Cute packaging! Perfect natural looking tan with this one! You can get Sonia Kashuk at Target for under $10! (Get Free Shipping!)

The Physicians Formula Bronze Booster is another favorite of mine. It even contains an SPF of 20! Remember: you can use that included brush for contouring. Even though I can see some tiny flecks of golden sparkle when I look on it up close- I do not notice any glitter when I apply it on my face. Absolute gorgeous summer tanned skin with this! Amazing! (Under $10 on Amazon!)

The EDDIE FUNKHOUSER Ultra Definition Bronze and Sculpt Powder is a very new discovery of mine. So super gorgeous! All in there from a highlight to bronzers to blush- you can even use this as eyeshadows! Absolutely gorgeous and very unique! Only $12.99! You can win this right now!

A fabulous trick for an affordable bronzer is to use simply a powder foundation and choose a very dark color. I love to use the Ulta Powder Foundation in "Warm tan". This color is perfect! Very comparable to the Too Faced Chocolate Soleil- with the exception of the gorgeous chocolate scent but therefore you can get it (ON SALE) for $5!!! I recommend this highly!

Last but not least: I love my Wet n Wild Coloricon Bronzer in Bikini Contest! Yes, it has a bit orange under tones- I would not recommend this for very pale skin- for me though it looks absolutely gorgeous fresh summer tanned- as if I just took a walk on the beach. I also love how huge the pan is!

And it smells fabulous like summer and coconuts! It contains an SPF of 15 (though I would not rely solely on that and always apply a sunscreen under it). Under $5? WOW!!!


I just did my very first collab on YouTube with the gorgeous Melissa Rodriguez! You can watch my favorite TOP 5 drugstore bronzers on my channel and on her channel her TOP 5 high end bronzers!
