The Highest Ranked Bronzer & Highlighter Compact Right Now

Wednesday marks the official last day of summer and, although we're lamenting the loss of warmer weather, we're excited to start shopping for transitional autumn makeup, including palettes, lipsticks, and concealers. But the product we want to snag first is a bronzer-and-highlighter duo to keep our sun-kissed glow going year-round. Unfortunately, many of them can look too orange or glittery for the fall months, so we enlisted our friends at Rank & Style to help us find the best, most natural-looking one. The site uses customer reviews, editors' picks, and overall buzz to figure out which products are going to work the hardest for you. Consider its authors beauty lovers with a penchant for math. After crunching the numbers, Rank & Style named Charlotte Tilbury's Filmstar Bronze & Glow the winner for its rave online reviews, popularity among editors, and overall buzz. On, user macnuts wrote, "This product honestly gives me life... The contour shade in this is so natural, [and] it gives me that...bronzy look without looking too cakey. The highlight shade is the perfect 'not too shimmery' shade... If I'm going for a really natural look, I will just wear foundation, this product, and mascara, and it makes me feel like I'm glowing. These powders are so, so, so easy to blend with other products, but also on their own... The packaging is gorgeous, and the product in it is sooo worth the money!!!" We appreciate her enthusiasm, because we couldn't agree more. Not only does the highlighter give a lovely candlelit glow to the cheekbones, bridge of the nose, and inner corners of the eyes, but the bronzing powder is the perfect neutral to contour and warm up your complexion. We showed the Light to Medium compact here, but those with darker complexions will love the Bronze & Glow in Medium to Dark, which features a deeper bronzer and a pretty, peach-colored highlighter. We know we'll be reaching for it daily to fake a "fresh from the beach" look well into winter.

Charlotte Tilbury Filmstar Bronze & Glow, $68, available at Nordstrom.
