Olivia Culpo Swears By This Chanel Bronzing Cream

It would be an understatement to call Olivia Culpo just a beautiful face. This busy entrepreneur and social media influencer has a pretty extensive (40-step!) skincare and makeup routine to keep looking this flawless, and everything she is doing definitely works because she is gorgeous (via Vogue). Culpo shared with Byrdie that true beauty starts from within, and while she loves skincare, she has also added meditation and journaling to her routine that shows in her skin.

Culpo has also revealed the secret to her bronze glow when she shared her makeup routine with Harper's Bazaar "I Woke Up Like This" video, and it is none other than Chanel's cream bronzer. We might not have the time (and money) to invest in such an all-encompassing routine, but we can definitely fake her sun-kissed glow.

She loves this bronzing cream on her face and body because it looks very natural and can be used with a brush or a sponge. The model called the bronzer "Soleil Tan De Chanel," but in 2020, they renamed it Chanel Les Beiges Healthy Glow Bronzing Cream (via US Weekly). She also uses the product as her eyeshadow. We love multitasking products like this because you can use it for an all-over glow or just contouring your face.

Chanel bronzing cream gives the best sun-kissed glow

Chanel Les Beiges Healthy Glow Bronzing Cream is a lightweight, hybrid cream-gel bronzer with a velvety matte finish that gives you a sun-kissed glow. It has light-reflecting pigments for a natural-looking radiance, and the soft-focus powders make your skin instantly smooth. It is noncomedogenic, so it won't cause breakouts. It is available in two shades: Soleil tan bronze and Soleil tan deep bronze. It retails for $50 for 1.06 ounces at Chanel. It is more expensive than regular bronzers, but that is to be expected with a luxury brand.

Olivia Culpo uses a big, fluffy brush to apply the cream bronzer on her face, neck, and chest (via Harper's Bazaar). It is a clever trick for the cooler months, so you have a natural-looking bronzed complexion all over. Glamour called this bronzer "a hall of fame icon" and compared its texture to BB cream. This buttery cream bronzer blends into your skin seamlessly, making you look like a bronze goddess. Insider called it "the perfect bronzer" because it works great on its own or on top of foundation, and the longevity and blendable texture validate the price. It blends right into the skin and has coconut oil with skincare benefits. All of this said, if you don't want to spend the money, you can sub with a more affordable dupe like Fenty Beauty Cream Bronzer in Macchiato.
