The 5 Best Bronzers For Indian Skin Tone To Get Your Hands On RN!

By  | 

What a brave, experimental girl you are. In a country obsessed with fairness, you are here to offer your time to an article on bronzers. Yes, I know bronzers don’t darken you, they can be used to chisel your face, amp up your contour, and are sometimes the only reason you look like you spend some time at the gym. But there’s a belief that Indian women with their deep, wheatish complexions simply don’t want bronzers. You proved them wrong, huh? But since you are here looking for the best bronzers for Indian skin tone, we have a few options to pick from. 

So bronze away, because you know that Goa trip tan is more skin peel-esque that Jennifer Lopez-esque.


L.A. Girl Pro Contour Powder (Rs 675) 

First off, let’s talk about the fact that there is a highlighting powder in the same pan, which means more value for your money. You also have options for shades, which means you have plenty to play with. This is a powder-based bronzer that’s pigmented, blends easily and can be diffused to contour your face effortlessly. It has plenty of kickback, so we suggest tapping the brush before you apply it.


theBalm Bahama Mama Bronzer (Rs 1399)

This is a product that will make you wonder why you ever stopped bronzing. Pigmented and buttery, this is perfect for when you are looking for a hint of bronzer, without looking like you tipped over a pot of it on your face. It goes on fine and diffuses the product well, so you look like you’ve gotten some sun, but not too much so you look fried.


Makeup Revolution Ultra Bronze (Rs 1000)

That is a big pan so you get lots of product, and can feel great about bagging a good deal. However, before you go to town with this, know that this is a cool-toned bronzer and needs to be matched to your skin. Women with pink undertones will love this one.


NYX Professional Makeup Highlight & Contour Pro Palette Matte Finish (Rs 2000)

So this one has a bunch of contour shades but it fabulously multi-tasks as a bronzer as well. In fact, within the palette, you’ll find 4 shades to play with. 2 with warmer undertones and 2 with cooler undertones, all of which work well as bronzers, and to up your contour. This one gets a huge thumbs up from us.


Benefit Cosmetics Hoola Matte Bronzer (Rs 2810)

How do you talk about bronzers and not mention the most epic one of them all? Yes, the Hoola Matte Bronzer. This is iconic, with beauty bloggers everywhere swearing this is the next best thing since sliced bread. And we agree. Buttery, soft, pigmented yet easily blendable, this is love at first application. However, there’s not too many shades, which can be a bit of a bummer.
