Summer is officially here and what redhead doesn’t yearns for a cheeky bronzed glow, like Cintia Decker? But, with our naturally pale skin that’s not always possible without a little cosmetic help.

Here are 4 “redhead friendly” bronzers to add color to your cheeks without harmful UV rays:

1. Urban Decay ‘Baked Bronzer’: This super fine powder adds high impact color without streaks. Because of its high pigment, just a little swipe on a big, fluffy blush brush along the bridge of your nose and check bones will give you the appearance of a “beach babe” without all the UV damage.

2. Benefit ‘Sun Beam’: The geniuses at Benefit call this product “liquid sunshine in a bottle;” now who wouldn’t want that? This golden bronze highlighter gives you a natural, sunkissed look that can be used with or without make up and compliments every skin tone!

3. NARS Illuminator in ‘Orgasm’: This product should be in every redhead’s makeup kit. The peachy- bronze color is über complimentary with our fiery locks and gives a lit within, healthy glow. Use it anywhere on your face that you want to highlight like cheekbones and even eyelids.

4. Perfekt Cheek Perfecting Gel: This is one of my favorite, new products! This multi-tasking product is a tinted cheek perfecter that instantly enhances the appearance of the skin while giving a perfect color match to every skin tone. It’s a must-have for any ginger who wants the look of super smooth skin with believable color.

Tip: Use on your brow bones to really open up your eyes.

With these fabulous products, redheads can be bronzed beauties while still protecting their delicate skin!
