What is it about a bronze glow that instantly enhances one's mood? Maybe it's a reminder of an amazing tropical vacation (hello, piña colada!) or perhaps it's that it makes us feel a little more confident. We won't preach to you about the harmful effects of UV rays, or that you should always wear an SPF 30 or higher, but we will encourage you to try these new bronzer launches, out just in time for a natural-looking Summer glow sans the harmful side effects. There's something for everyone: a powder, a cream, and one that's great for contouring, too. Just remember to start off light-handed when applying your bronzer and then build as needed.

The wrong blush shade and texture can take you into lady-of-the-night territory. The right blush, however, can give you a lit-from-within flush, brightening your complexion in about 10 seconds flat.

And because of its soft, lightweight texture, there's nary an obvious streak or too-shimmery finish to be found. In fact, likely nobody will know you're even wearing makeup. It's a high-end purchase, no doubt. But for its ability to give you a fresh-faced, natural-looking glow with minimal effort, it's hard to put a price on that.
