My Very Favorite Products For Creating a Summer Glow
If you pay attention to any beauty blogs, magazines or tutorials you know that glow is talked about A LOT. Hey I get it. It's nothing new. We all know that skin looks really sexy and pretty when it has a "glow" to it. And let's be honest, skin also looks amazing when it has a bit of a tan as well. That's why everyone is using that Tan and Tiffany filter on their Instagram stories right now! And since I currently have neither a glow or tan going on, I thought maybe some of you might be struggling with your summer glow as well! Soooo I put together all my very favorite bronze and glow products. These are all staples in my makeup kit and are tried and tested. Let me know what you think or if you have any products I need to add to my list!
BECCA Cosmetics Backlight Priming Filter – This is my go to product for those glowy bridal looks I create on so many of my clients. I apply it in place of moisturizer most of the time and when layered under foundation it gives such a healthy glow to skin. Great for dry, normal or combination skin types but those of you with oily skin should probably skip this one. This baby works well literally on every skin tone.
Fenty Beauty Cheeks Out Freestyle Cream Bronzer- Super light weight and incredibly easy to blend. I love these cream bronzers because of how quickly you can slap them on and blend them into your skin. Fenty has created an amazing range of colors that are totally sweat resistant so they are perfect for weddings or all day events.
Clinique Sun Kissed Face Gelee Complexion Multitasker- This product is so interesting! It comes out of the tube as a dark brown color but the unique thing is it came be blended down or built up to suit a variety of skin tones. An oil free gel that adds a gorgeous warmth to skin. Mix with foundation to add an instant tan to skin or use it to contour your face on forehead and under cheekbones. Perfect for all skin types and medium fair to medium-dark skin tones.
Charlotte Tilbury Hollywood Bronze and Glow- This powder bronzer and highlight
dual product can be used to contour and highlight your face and is pretty much foolproof! They have a light/medium shade and a medium/dark shade that works on a bigger range of skin tones. This is a great option for those oilier skin types.
BECCA Cosmetics Khloe and Malika Glow Palettes- Bronzer to warm the skin,
highlighter to add glow, and two gorgeous blushes that you can use on cheeks or
eyes. The Khloe palette is great for light to medium skin tones and the Malika palette is beautiful for medium to dark skin tones. Pro Tip* Swirl them all together and apply on cheeks for a super pretty flush of color!
Charlotte Tilbury Eyes to Mesmerize Cream Shadows- All these creamy eye shadow colors have an amazing shimmer to them! They are the icing on the cake for a super glowy makeup look. You can apply them in seconds with your fingers or a fluffy brush. They blend so
easily and set completely so no other products are needed. Bonus* Charlotte Tilbury is having her summer sale so you can get some good deals on these pretties!
