Bronzer for fair skin?

I have pretty fair skin and ive tried a few drug store bronzers and they all look ridiculously  dark on me. Any suggestions for bronzers that arent too dark? The ones i tried look like ive wiped mud on my face.

This one by Dior in 02 is my hands down favorite!  I'm also fair and have the same problem with bronzers.  This one I love so much I just bought a back-up of it!

Of course, it's not drugstore pricing, but when you take into account that you could waste $50 trying a dozen drugstore products it's totally worth just spending it all upfront!  Not to mention the superior quality as well. :smileyhappy:

I almost forgot about Naked Flushed!  I have this one too and I like it almost as much as my beloved Dior.  Just swipe a fan brush (for lightest application) across all 3 shades and it works beautifully.

Hi Bianca1717,

 

Look for bronzers that have a warmer tone to it, rather than a cooler brown shade. I recommend Benefits Dallas dallas.jpg

 

or SMASHBOX Bronze Lights in Sunkissed Matte - matte warm tan.

Are you fair like NikkiTutorials on YouTube? She is N1 in the L'Oreal True Match foundation and I think she's NC15 in MAC. She uses Illamasqua blush in Disobey as a bronzer. You can watch any of her tutorials and to see her use it.

You can also try using a pressed powder that's 1 or 2 shades darker than your actual skin tone as a bronzer.

I am a little lighter than an NC15 (and less yellow) and my two all time favourites are Too Faced Milk Chocolate Soleil if i want a matte/contouring bronzer, and Too Faced Pink Leopard if I want a slightly shimmery bronzer.  Neither is too dark or too orange, just be light landed with it.
