Beautiful Bronzers: How to Get a Golden Glow Like Selena Gomez & Young Hollywood

This week marked two major milestones in the personal and professional life of Selena Gomez. Not only did she turn 21 last Monday, the same day the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge welcomed the arrival of their son Prince George, she released her debut solo album "Stars Dance." Both events signify that the former Disney darling has come into her own as an artist and as a woman.

Gomez also recently parted ways for good with her longtime on-again, off-again beau Justin Bieber. However, it appears transition suits her well. The suddenly single songstress still maintains a fresh golden glow that complements her trademark ruby red lips and long brunette hair.

What's behind her radiant look? In addition to great genes and a seemingly healthy lifestyle, it might be attributed to a facial bronzer. This type of makeup covers blemishes, and adds color to your skin to highlight your forehead, cheeks, nose and chin. Women tend to use bronzers more during this time of the year to accentuate summer skin tones.

Whether it's a tint, bronzer or tanning cream, celebrities increasingly turn to these beauty aids to enhance their highly photographed complexions. We've compiled the latest looks from young Hollywood, and the gels, creams, and loose and pressed powders that can help you achieve the same glamorous glow.
