Autumn is practically here, but that doesn’t mean we have to let go of our summertime bronze! Perfect for all seasons, the MAKE UP FOR EVER Pro Bronze Fusion powders are all about achieving a healthy glow. Waterproof and long-lasting, this unique gel-powder bronzer is designed to never look streaky or obvious, which is ideal for getting ready in the darker morning light.
If you’re all about a healthy, sun-kissed glow without having to worry about of over doing it, your new favourite bronzer awaits below. Let’s see the shades…
The Pro Bronze Fusion Shades
10M – Honey, 15I – Amber, 20M -Sand, 25I – Cinnamon, 30M – Sienna, 35I – Caramel
Comprised of an array of matte and iridescent finishes to sculpt or add radiance to your skin, each Pro Bronze Fusion Powder shade is completely fool-proof. This clever bronzing powder uses its texture to enhance your complexion without a powdery, OTT finish. Sounds pretty good, right?
If you’re looking for a contouring bronzer: Choose an M shade, and if you’re looking for a glowing bronzer: Opt for an I shade. However, I understand that the bronzing rule of thumb is different for everyone’s tastes and preferences.
You could also intensify your tan by using both M and I shades in tandem to create the perfect bronze glow. I love using my Bronze Fusion Kabuki – 136 to apply, as it’s completely mistake-proof and great for buffing and blending bronzer! I hope you’ll find the application tips for each type of bronzer helpful below…
Pro Bronze Fusion – The Matte Shades
10M – Honey, 20M – Sand, 30M – Sienna
Ideal for adding structure to your features, M is for matte. This collection of sculpting shades are more suited to those who want to add depth and shade to their look, you won’t find any shimmer here.
Suitable for even the fairest of skin types, there’s an M shade available for everyone. If you want to use the M shades to contour, opt for a hue that’s two shades darker than your complexion for added definition. The plus side about sculpting with these shades is their ability to build and blend.
10M – Honey subtly warms fair skin with its ever so slight apricot bronze shade.
20M – Sand is fitted with more of a cool undertone which will sculpt a fair-to-light medium skin tone.
30M – Sienna is the deepest of the matte shades; a medium-to-darker skin will benefit more from its natural warmth.

Pro Bronze Fusion – The Iridescent Shades
15I – Amber, 25I – Cinnamon, 35I – Caramel
More of a sheer finish than a shimmer, I is for iridescent. Although some luminous bronzers can appear too ‘glowy’, the I shades within the MAKE UP FOR EVER Pro Bronze Fusion range are more beachy glow than glitter ball.
Each shade fits a light-to-medium complexion perfectly, as their seamless texture blends beautifully into your skin without any traces. Technically, you should apply a shimmering bronzer to the high points of your face (wherever the sun hits your complexion). This is the best way to create effortless radiance, whilst faking the appearance of a post holiday glow.
15I – Amber was made to add radiance to a fairer skin. Compared to the other hues, Amber is cooler and will complement paler complexions.
25I – Cinnamon is slightly warmer than the Amber shade, its golden shimmer will enhance lighter skin types with its ambient glow.
35I – Caramel will beautifully bronze a medium skin tone with its natural, sun-kissed warmth.
