The Best Winter Bronzers That Won't Make You Look Like an Oompa Loompa

The Best Winter Bronzers That Won't Make You Look Like an Oompa Loompa

I asked my great group of girlfriends what kind of posts they'd be interested in reading from me to get some ideas and to see what a potential audience would want to see. The title of this post is the actual response from my girlfriend...and it is literally all of us.

After a few random days in November here in Jersey of 60 degree weather, winter has finally arrived...and with a vengeance. It is blistering and windy AFFFFFFF. I feel like I am in the windy city (Chicago is that you? I'm not any good at geography. I like clothes, okay). But I am not complaining, the winter is my jam. Get tf out of here with sunny skies and warm weather. I want the freezing cold and chapped lips. HAHA no, not entirely. But I love the winter, I am a winter baby and I am ready for this season. Bring it!

So wait, what was I talking about again? Oh yes, bronzers.

So I am pale ... like really pale. Which means, that even in the summer, I can use my winter bronzers, and vice versa. Therefore, I have a little bit of an idea as to what kind of bronzers to use in the winter that won't give you all the oompa loompa feels. Here are my top faves:


1. Benefit Hoola Matte Bronzer $29.00 (shop the link for a free gift with this purchase until Christmas Eve!) 

2. Tarte Amazonian Clay Matte Waterproof Bronzer (Park Ave Princess) $30.00

3. Anastasia Beverly Hills Contour Kit (Light to Medium) $40.00 (shop the link for a free gift with this purchase until Christmas Eve!)

4. Too Faced Chocolate Soleil Matte Bronzer (Light/Medium) $30.00
