9 Makeup Artist-Approved Bronzers For Every Skin Tone & Type

Photographed by Erin Yamagata.
Pop quiz: What's harder than picking a bronzer that looks natural? Finding one that looks natural and is natural. (We'll give you a second to let that sink in.) Ready? Great.
Finding a good bronzer is tough enough: There's cream, liquid, powder; shimmer and matte; plus a variety of shades to choose from. And if you're in the market for something with a low preservative count and minimal carbon footprint? That's a tall order. Luckily for us, celebrity makeup artist Katey Denno took a break from her star clients — like Amanda Seyfried, Mindy Kaling, and Olivia Munn — to put together a foolproof guide for just this purpose.
Denno is known as the "green celebrity makeup artist," which means the majority of the products she uses hew as close as she can get to the natural side of the makeup spectrum, without sacrificing performance. Ahead, she's selected nine bronzers she loves — and organized them by skin tone and type — to make your summer glow totally foolproof.
