A swipe of bronzer is the quickest way to warm up the skin and add a sun-kissed finish. A break from traditional powder formulas, these cream-based options keep skin looking hydrated and dewy without settling into fine lines—a must for sun-drenched summer days.

1 / 9

Charlotte Tilbury Beautiful Skin Sun-Kissed Glow Cream Bronzer ($56)

Sweatproof and designed for a 16-hour wear, this hyaluronic acid–infused option won’t catch on any dry patches or tug on skin. Its larger pan size also makes buffing into the chest and body simple.

2 / 9

MAKEUP BY MARIO SoftSculpt Transforming Skin Enhancer ($30)

Not big on contour? This creamy formula—it’s pegged as a “tinted complexion balm”—is great for adding warmth and breezy dimension in seconds.

3 / 9

Elaluz by Camila Coelho Stick Bronzer with Camu Camu ($29)

The sharp-edged, horizontal shape of this cream bronzer makes sculpting out cheekbones foolproof. Plus, the formula contains natural oils to avoid any hard-to-blend speed bumps.

Chanel Les Beiges Healthy Glow Bronzing Cream ($50)

A cult-classic for a reason, this buff-and-glow option delivers a true second-skin glow with an untraceable finish.

5 / 9

Saie Sun Melt Natural Cream Bronzer ($28)

Clean and spiked with grapeseed oil for a juicy finish, this balm-meets-cream offering is available in four shades for a true-to-you glow.

6 / 9

Anastasia Beverly Hills Cream Bronzer ($25) 

This versatile formula—buff it onto your lids for a monochromatic look—is highly pigmented, long-wearing and comes in seven hues to enhance a range of skin tones.

7 / 9

Makeup by Mario Soft Sculpt Shaping Stick ($28)

Perfect for a quick contour, this creamy, six-shade formula is easily blendable—use the brush on the opposite side or your fingers—for a melts-right-in finish and zero harsh lines.

8 / 9

e.l.f. Putty Bronzer ($6)

This wallet-friendly option may be smaller than its palm-sized counterparts—it’s about the size of a quarter, making application a little tricky—but delivers a believable, buildable bronze to the skin just the same.

9 / 9

Tarte Breezy Cream Contour ($29)

A little goes a long way with this silky, beginner-friendly formula that’s infused with hyaluronic acid and sodium hyaluronate for a bouncy, hydrating wear. When paired with the Bronzer Brush ($29, sold separately), contouring becomes virtually foolproof.
