It’s almost time to put away the winter boots and bring out the sandals. Well—summer is still a few months away, but a girl can dream, right? With the SS19 fashion trends currently rolling out, we thought we’d give you a little bit of a head start on some bronzers we can’t wait to rock this summer. With our excitement for beaches and sundresses, we’ve curated a list of cult favourites and luxury products to stock up on for summer. Here are the 8 bronzers we know you’ll love.
All-Over Face Color
Price Point: CAD $27
This loose powder comes in 4 shades according to your skin tone—and we are loving the shade “Warmth” as a bronzer. Use it to keep your make-up from melting off while simultaneously adding a natural and glowing summer tan.
Price Point: CAD $82
Choose from a cool or warm shade trio and never look back. These Kevyn Aucoin Bronzers are a magical product and will add the perfect bronze effect coupled with a flush of colour to your cheekbones. And as with any Kevyn Aucoin product, the application is flawless enough to make you fall in love.
O!Mega Bronzer Perfect Tan
Price Point: CAD $59
The O!Mega Bronzer only comes in one shade, but it’s neutral enough to have won the hearts of many who use it. Whether you have a paler or medium skin tone, start with a light hand and slowly build it up to your desired shade. That’s why we love this for summer—you can keep using it even after laying out in the sun for weeks.
Hola Matte Bronzer
Price Point: CAD $40
We had to include this one for summer because it’s a cult classic bronzer and Benefit Cosmetics has just released 2 darker shades! If you’ve found yourself putting your well-loved Hoola bronzer away for the summer because it’s too light, pick up the one of the new shades in Caramel or Toasted for a medium to deep glow.

Murumuru Butter Bronzer
Price Point: CAD $19
A sun kissed glow with a coconut scent? We can’t get over how amazing this drugstore bronzer from Physician’s Formula is. It will leave your skin glowing and smells like everything you love about summer. They only came out with 2 shades for its launch (admittedly they were both too light for anyone with a medium skin tone), but it has become a favourite so you can now choose from 6, with 3 deeper shades!
Soleil Tan De Chanel
Price Point: CAD $54
A luxurious choice is never a bad choice. This Chanel bronzer is a cream product perfect for those pool days when you don’t want to cake on the powder. It has a slight shimmer and a very faint signature floral scent that fades with application.
The Ultimate Bronzer
Price Point: CAD $132
This pricey bronzer comes in 2 matte finishes and 1 shimmer shade. If you’re looking for a neutral bronzer that will look gorgeous both on the face and on your vanity, look no further. We love each of these Tom Ford bronzer shades.

Terracotta Bronzing Powder
Price Point: CAD $64
The Terracotta Bronzer has been a legendary product for several years—it was the first bronzer released by Guerlain and continues to be loved by many. The bronzer comes in 5 shades so you’ll definitely find the perfect summer glow that will blend effortlessly and give you a luminous, yet matte tan that looks naturally sun-kissed.
