So I am going to preface this by saying I’m not a skincare guru. I leave that to the dermatologists, estheticians, and cosmetologists, BUT I have discovered a few products that have really worked for me in helping to give me that summer glow. The best thing is that you can use them all year to maintain that summer glow.
First up is Jergens Natural Glow lotion. I use the Target version brand on my whole body but the Jergens I use on my face every morning. It has an SPF in it to help protect from the sun, gives a nice non greasy hydrating feel and gives also gives a buildable tan effect. The tan color is not so strong like the body lotion but more like a subtle glowing color.
Pixie by Petra highlighter and blush duo. I love this product! There is a nice subtle color but mixed with the highlighter it just leaves a nice subtle shimmer. It makes your cheeks look oh so sunkissed!
MAC coral bliss lipstick has been my go-to summer lipstick color. There is just something amazing about coral color against tan glowing skin. Everything just pops so nicely and the coral seems to enhance the tan. It is just the perfect color day or night.
The Pixie + Dulce Candy eye color palette is phenomenal! The colors are not bold, they are subtle but yet buildable so the color can intensify the more you put on. The palette has a beautiful shimmer and the blush colors can even be used on the cheeks! I love these shimmery, candy colored hues paired up next to a nice tan and coral lips for the perfect “just came from the beach” glowing look.
Pixie by Petra Fairy Lights is a beautiful shimmery eyeshadow that can be worn alone or over other shadow to add a glittery look. If you want to shimmer and shine, this will do it!
Summer makeup should not be heavy. No one wants black eyeshadow smearing from heat and sweet. It should be light and airy yet natural. All these products will help give you that natural sun kissed look. It will make your skin shimmer in the sun, enhance your tan, yet still look natural and light.
