Celebrity Makeup Artists Are Obsessed With: JK Jemma Kidd Bronzer

Feeling a little sallow? Missing the summer sunshine? Check out one of our newest obsessions: JK Jemma Kidd's "Show Stopper" collection—a water-resistant bronzer and year-round body glow that's a favorite among celebrity makeup artists.

"I love, love, love JK's Show Stopper bronzer," says Brett Freedman, who works with Kelly Clarkson, Kirsten Dunst, Leighton Meester, and Vanessa Hudgens. "Genius that it's a large disc allowing me to use a bigger brush to sweep over sun-starved shoulders, arms, and legs. The formula really holds up under the lights on the red carpet."

"The versatile bronzer is a transparent bit of color with a slight shimmer," says Jeffery Paul, who works with celebs including Brandy, Frieda Pinto, and Tyra Banks. "I love it for pale skin—it gives it a wash of summer sun-kissed sun. On darker skin, the shimmer makes the skin radiant."

"Show Stopper rocks," says Steeve Daviault, who works with Enrique Iglesias, Eva Mendes, Kate Hudson, Teri Hatcher, and Tom Cruise. "It can be used on the body, cheeks, and bridge of the nose. I used it on Enrique Iglesias in his last video and we loved it."

See? Even guys can use bronzer too.
