Our New Favorite Way To Apply Bronzer

If you want a sun-kissed look, one of our new favorite tricks is to apply gel bronzer with a makeup brush. This method is totally idiot-proof since gels are notoriously easy to use and getting the product even is a total cinch with the help of a large bronzer brush. Use this method the next time you’re running straight from work to a dinner date—we promise the added radiance will pair well with candlelight. Here, 5 of our favorite bronzer gels.
