I'm in the market for a bronzer, but I have a really hard time finding stuff that works with my skin. I have really, really pale skin with a pinky/neutral undertone (I can't wear MAC foundation). What are some bronzers that could work?
I picked up a drugstore bronzer recently. It's by Hard Candy in the color tropics. The awesome thing is all you need is a big fluffy powder brush and when you do the 3E it leaves a nice glow, but its almost matte looking! I love it. And elf's healthy glow bronzer. They are both very cheap.
I'm a MAC NW15/NW20 in the summer, and I really love Physicians Formula Summer Eclipse Bronzing & Shimmery Face Powder in 'Moonlight/Light Bronzer'. The bronzer is a pretty neutral tone - not too orange or 'dirty' looking, and the highlighting/shimmery powder is a pretty gold! It's perfect and not too dark!
Benefit Hoola, perhaps (I'll actually be trying this out myself soon)? Also, MAC released a bronzer in their Hey, Sailor! collection that may work for you (the one in Soft Sand).
I also know some palies around here like NYC's Sunny bronzer. Personally, I think it's a bit too dark, at least in the pan; if you use a very light hand, it may work, but I'm skeptical.
Another thing you could try is using a pressed powder that's two or three shades darker than your skintone.
Physicians Formula Happy Booster Mood & Glow Boosting Powder in Light Bronze. :) It looks amazing on fair skin (not too much and not too little).

I HIGHLY recommend MAC's Bronzer in "Golden". I swear by it, and its the perfect color for fair skin.

I am SUPER pale, and I recently found an awesome bronzer by wet 'n' wild. it's ColorIcon Bronzer in "reserve your cabana". It looks almost like a powder foundation, but it's awesome to use for contouring.
If you're looking for something with a little more color, I also absolutely love meow cosmetics (http://www.meowcosmetics.com) they have a billion shades of everything, and offer samples for $1.00. I bought a bunch of samples a while back and I don't think I'll run out of any of them soon, even though i use them all the time. If you get the meow samples, i recommend going to the dollar store and buying a set of those tiny tupperware things that come 10 to a bag or something like that. they're a good size for the cosmetics and the stickers from the sample bags fit perfectly on top so you won't lose track of which is which.
Physicians Formula Bronze Booster in light, it looks dark but when you put it on its a lot lighter then it appears
I'm a MAC NC15 and Rimmel London's Natural Bronzer in 'sun light' is amazing. It's not crazy bronze, and it's MATTE which is nice :-)

I find most bronzers to be too orange for my light skin. So I keep going back to my NYX blush in Taupe. It's perfect. ♥
check out Benefit and Urban decay
MAC blush in Warm Soul. It makes you look sun kissed. Not good for contouring, but works well if you want a little glow.

Try Bobbi Brown! She actually has a bronzer with a pink undertone that looks amazing on fair tones without giving you that annoying oompa loompa look! Looks great and even has a slight shimmer w/o being overwhelming :)

You guys, I found a bronzer that has changed my life. It is the Too Faced Peach Leopard Bronzer. It looks amazing on my skin!
