Summer is finally here—and while it’s easy enough to transition from your parkas and boots to short sleeves and sandal-sneaker hybrids, giving your complexion a warm-weather glow can be a bit more complicated.

Because while proper use of SPF protects you from harmful rays (and at this point is basically a beauty non-negotiable), it also slows down your progression to sun-kissed goddess. What’s a glow-loving girl to do? The easiest and quickest route: get intimate with a bronzer.

Thankfully, all it takes is a few dabs of a mica-spiked, moisturizing tint, and it’ll look like you just got back from a tropical vacay.

Ready to swap out your blush? Here are the 4 top-rated natural bronzer options at Sephora right now.
