3. Choose a texture you are comfortable with: If you have oily skin, then you’re probably thinking that you have no other option but matte pressed bronzers to go with, since anything else will sit heavy on your skin. That isn’t the case at all, because you can choose from a range of bronzers, starting from powder bronzers to creamy bronzers, and everything in between.
- If you are leaning towards a powder bronzer, then you should choose it for days when you need heavy-duty makeup which will last long and won’t have to be taken care of every couple of hours. The powdery nature of the bronzer will keep your skin feeling light and fresh, and give you a defined contour without having to go anywhere near a contour stick. It is perfect for everyday wear, and is also the best suited for oily skin types. Here are some awesome powder bronzers for you.

- There are also a number of cream-based bronzers that you can check out when shopping for your particular skin type. I know you are already panicking, but fret not because some cream based bronzers can double as a contour stick, and give you heavy-duty performance for longer hours, and have a lesser chance of shedding from your face. Make sure you get sheer, hydrating and light formulas, so that it isn’t too taxing for your oily skin. Here are a couple of suggestions that we are particularly partial to.

Apart from the above mentioned tips, you also have to make sure that you use the right kind of brush to apply your bronzer. If you are a bronzing novice, then you should stand in front of a bright light, and apply bronzer along the natural shadow lines that fall across your face.
When picking a shade for your bronzer, make sure that you don’t choose a shade that is more than two shades darker than your natural skin tone. If you have pale skin, and you choose a chocolate toned bronzer, then it can look unnatural on your skin, and become a coloring, rather than correcting agent.
That being said, picking the best bronzer for oily skin isn’t as difficult a task as it may seem. A lot of it is gut-instinct, as long as you stick with well-known dependable brands. Make sure you do your research well, and you will be able to slay your makeup look, every time!
