Beauty Chameleon’s Top 5 Favorite Bronzers

Summer time is right around the corner and you better believe that the trend in makeup will switch from pink and coral looks from spring to hot sexy and bronzed looks for summer 2009. One of the popular makeup items that is becoming a staple year round is a bronzer. Some of you may say what is a bronzer and what it is used for? Well makeup artist Carmindy from the highly rate show called What Not to Wear on TLC says:

“Bronzers are an excellent replacement for blush when you want a natural, sun-kissed look. If you are in the mood for high drama, bring on a triple play of bronzer, blush and highlighter to really take your cheeks to the next level.”

-From Get Positively Beautiful, by Carmindy

Bronzers are available in all types of mediums such as powder, cream, and liquid formulations that can be a blast to play with and bring on that touch of sun look without damaging your skin. Some of our favorite bronzers here at beauty chameleon are:
