During the opening ceremony of the Summer Olympics the past Saturday morning (our time that is), we spotted Brazilian supermodel Gisele Bündchen looking her absolute best as she strutted down the runway—glowing under the dazzling lights too, might we add. If her sun-kissed complexion doesn't make you want to get a tan for that stunning golden glow, we don't know what will.

Here's the catch: No one would recommend a real suntan for that aforementioned glow, not even if you've got the most expensive sunscreen that targets all those harmful UV rays. But who says you can't fake it to make it? Here we round up seven top bronzers in our beauty books, including classics and new soon-to-be favourites that you can use to sustain that summer glow before the next season. While Diorskin Nude Air Tan Healthy Glow Sun Powder and Urban Decay's Beached Bronzer are our favourite compact bronzers to bring along in our beauty kits, M.A.C Studio QuikTrik Stick is the latest multipurpose chubby sticks that you can use for bronzing, highlighting and contouring. And if you prefer a liquid bronzer instead, go for Benefit Cosmetics Dew the Hoola Soft Matte Liquid Bronzer for a shimmerless, all-natural look.
