Summer bronzer recommendation

I would appreciate any input on a bronzer, no sparkles. I'm "Irish" fair skin. I wear a rosy blush in winter but would like a healthy bronzed look for summer.

I am super fair and I love Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess. It comes in different shades and I have the lightest. No sparkle and it last forever and ever (my 3rd summer).

Laura Geller has a bronzer which is not talked about much but is perfect for fair complexions and very easy to control.

Baked Impressions Matte Bronzer in the color Light.

I just bought Bobbi Brown's lightest one---golden fair, I think it is... I liked Laura Geller's Bronze and Brighten---I just wish it had been more finely milled....

Another vote for EL Bronze Goddess.

It does seem to last forever and you don't need all that much to give a nice glow. I've tried other (cheaper) brands and always ended up looking like I had dirt on my face.

Maybe you can give it a try first to see if you like your chosen shade.

I like bareMinerals Bronzing Mineral Veil. I can use it with a very light touch so it adds a bit of color but does not look dark like a tan and I can add more for a tanned look. I also use it for contouring.

Re: Summer bronzer recommendation

I have been on a bronzing ""roll "" lately- and I have a couple favorites right now that I can recommend.

Laura Mercier Matte Radiance Baked Powder Bronzer- I have light/medium skin and love this in both #2 and # 3 shades. It is honestly gorgeous- it imparts a glow without all the sparkles and is so light and buildable. (I also have this in the shade #1 which is a the highlighting shade- also fabulous!!) Extremely easy to use- can not go wrong with this product!

Trish McEvoy also makes a wonderful bronzer- but to me had a bit of sparkle to it- not too much- but it is also worth taking a look at. This formula is also just wonderful and soft.

For a matte bronzer I like too faced chocolate soleil or milk chocolate soleil (if your super fair) and it cosmetics bronzer (not the new cc one) also on amazon you can still order revlon photoready bronzer which has a mix of 4 matte colors (recently discontinued) for under $10
