Default Bronzers - should I be using one?

I'm fair to begin with and losing pigment as I age.I've never tried bronzer but I'm wondering about trying it out this summer. Do you use it in addition to blush? What's your favorite bronzer?
Thanks!

i'm brown and i use the bobbi brown bronzer in dark. it's a matte bronzer and it looks nice to give a little depth and helps slim my face. youtube has great videos on bronzer, how to apply and which ones are good.

I'm very fair with a slight warm undertone and most bronzers look dark, muddy or orange on me. On a whim I picked up Wet n' Wild Reserve your Cabana bronzer. I've never bought this brand before but it was el cheapo and I figured, what the heck.

To my surprise it looked very nice on me. It is extremely sheer. Added just a smidgen of soft glow. I tried it on my bare skin and it evened out my complexion and looked better than my (too many) foundations. I still haven't found my HG foundation, and I might just try wearing this instead.

Anyone else tried this bronzer?

All the Wet n Wild bronzers are awesome in my opinion.
