Summer is right around the corner and when I think about summer makeup, I think about bronzed glowy skin! So in true Creativity Jar fashion, I had to put together a bronzer dupe list for some of the most coveted high end bronzers. There are so many best selling bronzers that are beautiful but come with a hefty price tag. So why not save your money and check out these 8 must have drugstore bronzer dupes for summer to get that glowy and bronzed look for less.
Bronzers can be really tricky with finding the right shade and undertone for your skin. I have struggled for a while to find a good drugstore option that suites my light skin and complexion. I have neutral/pink undertones and most bronzers tend to look too orange or harsh on me. It was exciting to see brands like Benefit expand their best selling Hoola bronzer to include more shades like the Caramel and Lite options which will help to include both light and dark skin.
My personal favorite drugstore bronzer is the Physicians Formula Butter Bronzer in Light Bronzer. It has a great neutral/cool undertone that really suites lighter skin tones IMO. I’ve also recently fallen back in love with cream bronzers/contour and my to-go for that is Jordana’s Sculpt n Go Creamy Contour Stick in Light. It has a beauitful creamy formula that is easy to blend out and the cool undertone of the Light shade makes it perfect for contouring.
Side note – Jordana can be hard to find sometimes but I believe the brand is sold at Walgreens and Amazon.
If you’ve been eyeing some high end bronzers like the Marc Jacobs O!Mega or the Benefit ones but just don’t want to shell out the money, this is the post for you! I have found some amazing dupes that will give you a near identical look for a fraction of the price. And these are specific shade dupes, not just formula dupes. When duping a product like bronzers, I think it’s important to dupe actual shades. Many times, the reason these high end bronzers are so popular is because of the actual shade of the product and not just the formula. So if you can’t dupe the exact shade, what’s the point?
Below I have listed out 8 ultra popular high end bronzers along with an affordable shade dupe for each with prices listed out so you can see the difference.
8 Must Have Drugstore Bronzer Dupes For Summer
Don’t let the product images fool you, these are straight up shade dupes my friends! Sometimes….actually most of the time…product images online don’t accurately reflect the color of the product in real life. Hence why I can never pick the right foundation shade when I order online.
And who wasn’t a little shocked and impressed that the Hoola Lite bronzer had a Maybelline setting powder dupe?! Same goes for the Marc Jacobs one.
So without further ado, it’s time to bust out the sandals and tank tops because summer is right around the corner. And with these 8 must have drugstore bronzer dupes for summer, you can bet your sun kissed booty that you will be bronzed and gorgeous!
