During the summer months I tend to wear less makeup. There’s something about that summer sun that gives my skin a tan, sun-kissed, and refreshed look.
A few ways you can enhance your tan, creating a glowing and dewy effect are by using only a few products, no eyeshadow or eyeliner needed. Below are a few of my favorite products for the summer of 2015! Although some of them are rather pricey, I firmly believe in investing in yourself, whether that be in the food you eat, clothes you wear, or makeup you use; you should always want the best for yourself.
To get that glowing radiance you’re looking for this summer, I suggest the NARS “orgasm” Illuminator ($30) or my personal favorite, Bobbi Brown’s Bronze Shimmer Brick Compact ($46). Along with the Shimmer Brick Compact, I use a pure badger-hair brush to apply, but the brush isn’t as important as owning a good quality bronzer. I use both on my cheeks and blend them together.
Currently, my favorite mascara is a Sephora brand called “Otrageous Curl” in Ultra Black ($12). I’ve tried a lot of different mascaras, from drugstore ones to the Dior’s Diorshow Blackout and this one is the best by far.
Before applying lipgloss, I always use my Bubblegum Lip Scrub by Lush ($9.95). The great thing about this is it’s a sugar scrub, so after you rub it all over your lips, you get to lick it off and it tastes just like bubblegum! Then I apply my NARS “Turkish Delight” lipgloss ($26).
Last but not least, Emotional Brilliance Translucent Face Powder by Lush. This natural product is amazing. I just recently bought it because my skin tends to get oily during the day and this is the perfect quick fix. I pour some powder into the cap of the jar and swirl around my Kabuki brush ($29 at Sephora) in it then apply to the needed areas.
