The sun is shining in full force and summer is on the way, which means longer days, shorter clothes and tan lines on full display.

While you might be soaking up all the summer warmth and getting a cute sun-kissed glow, we sincerely hope you’re protecting your face as much as possible with sunscreen, a hat and a cute pair of sunglasses. But, when it comes to makeup and skincare, go ahead and use it all to give yourself the most bronzed goddess, fresh-off-vacation look possible. From adding a subtle cheekbone chisel to incorporating a faux button nose look, bronzer is the ultimate summer beauty must-have.

Below are five luscious and juicy bronzer products that have made it onto our top shelf. Trust us, they will serve as the perfect addition to your updated minimal glam look this season.
