5 Instant Body Bronzers for a Healthy Glow Without the Wait featured image

Forget what you know about “body makeup” of the past. Thick, pasty formulas have been replaced by active ingredient–packed products that allow skin to peek through for a believable, healthy glow.

Whether you’re in need of a bronzing glow-up or want to blur the look of imperfections before a night out, body bronzers are the way to go. These lightweight, easy-to-apply formulas blend right into the skin for a believable glow without the hassle or wait time.

1 / 5

Lux Unfiltered Blurring Body Glow ($44)

Aside from delivering a picture-perfect filtered finish, this upgrade to your regular body moisturizer is packed with shea butter, squalane, sunflower seed oil and vitamin C to treat skin, too.

2 / 5

Bali Body Instant Tan ($25)

Skip the mess with this spray-on formula (we recommend also purchasing the Blending Brush for a seamless application). Nourishing vitamin E and cucumber ensure zero dry patches are left behind.

3 / 5

Elaluz Liquid Bronzer With Camu Camu ($32)

If you’re looking for a full-coverage bronze, keep scrolling. But if you’re after a sheer wash of color that instantly delivers a healthy glow, this is it.

4 / 5

Tarte Shape Tape Waterproof Body Makeup ($39)

The most full-coverage option of the bunch, this glycerin-infused, matte and shimmer-free cream is ideal for covering veins or imperfections you’d rather camouflage. (One look at the before-and-after photos and you’ll be a believer.)

5 / 5

Vita Liberata Body Blur Instant HD Skin Finish ($39)

Falling somewhere between a body foundation and a liquid bronzer, this BB cream–adjacent option slightly blurs out imperfections and imparts a light-reflecting bronze.
