Total Beauty: Best {& Worst} Bronzers

though we're heading into the cooler months, you can still keep that faux glow going on with a fabulous bronzer. i personally love them for perking up my complexion wearing alone or paired with my favorite blush.

in the following Total Beauty article, makeup artist Nick Barose shares his advice and application tips regarding the best bronzer for your skin tone.

he says: "you should use a bronzer to look healthier and sun-kissed, not 'bronze.'" for a believable tan, you shouldn't pick a color that is more than one shade darker than your natural skin color. and if you're fair skinned, he suggests looking for a sheer bronzer with peach tones. "avoid reds or browns if you're fair, because those shades will make you look orange and dirty."

if you're not sure which bronzers are worth your hard earned dollars, check out this list from reviews on Total Beauty's site. i'm happy to see a few i use on the list: bareMinerals Warmth, Smashbox Fusion Sunlights and Rimmel London's Natural Bronzer.

did your fave make the list? take a look...
