If you've been dying to try the contouring trend, but aren't sure where to start, this matte bronzer is great for beginners (like me, I confess). Brush it across your chin, cheeks, and forehead (anywhere the sun would normally brighten) and bang, you're a contouring pro.

6 Urban Decay Naked Flushed

If you're a fan of the Naked shadow palettes, you'll love this set of bronzers, blushes, and highlighters. Brush them on together for a sun-kissed look, or use them more carefully, each on their own, to contour.

7 Hourglass Ambient Lighting Bronzer
