We Tried It: A Bronzer That Actually Works on Every Skin Tone
Think you're too pale for bronzer? This one will change your mind
Most bronzers are too dark for a paleface like me. Even if I tap the excess powder off the brush and temper the color with a swirl of light pink blush, it looks ridiculous -- like I have dirt on my face.
I have a short list of bronzers that actually work for me, and this summer I'm adding the new Almay Smart Shade Bronzer, $10.99, to the arsenal. It comes in one shade, but it's incredibly sheer and easy to build on. In fact, I can layer it on -- and layer, and layer -- and the color still looks natural. The bronzer contains mineral pigments that give the skin a glow-y quality, and the results are subtle. Don't you think?
