Hello loves and welcome back! School is finally done which means summer is approaching faster than ever and I cannot wait!! The warm weather has inspired me to sport some bronzier and warmer toned makeup which further inspired me to create a post on some of my favourite products for achieving that glowy, bronzy skin everyone wants for the summer. I have listed below many products I have been loving to achieve this and where they can all be purchased. So, if you’re interested in reading about the products that will help you achieve that “JLo glow”, please keep reading!
Now I know you have probably seen this everywhere as it is the most versatile product on the market- however, using coconut oil as a moisturizer lately has been my favourite thing! I have very sensitive skin so I stray from using anything too heavy or fragranced and coconut oil has definitely improved the quality of my skin and has helped it become super hydrated and smooth, which is exactly what we want for summer. You can pick this up at any local grocery store or beauty supply store!
2. Sally Hansen Airbrush Legs
Price: $14.88 CAN
This product is soo amazing!! This is a leg makeup which comes in a spray can, aided towards blurring out any imperfection such as freckles, veins, bruises…etc. This is great for when you’re looking to show off your legs and aren’t wanting to wear nylons as it makes them look so smooth and airbrushed. This product does have a slight shimmer to it which looks so nice in the summer. It is also water resistant and transfer resistant- perfect for summer if you are going to be sweating or swimming. I use the shade “Deep Glow” which is the darkest shade (mama likes to be bronzed) and I use this product as more of a “self tanner” opposed to a leg makeup. This can be purchased at Walmart, Shoppers Drug Mart or Ulta.
Price: $19.00 CAN
I have been using this spray for almost a year and I have been using it to set my makeup as well as priming my face during the warmer months. If you don’t enjoy fragrance in your makeup I wouldn’t recommend this as it has a very strong lemon/green tea scent (I find it so refreshing). This is great to set your makeup, it is very similar to the Mario Badescu Rose Water spray. I love using this when I’m laying by the pool to cool my face down or even to refresh my face when I’m driving or outside in the sun. You get 8 Fl Oz which is great for the price! This will leave your skin looking so dewy and refreshed-definitely a summer must have. This can be purchased at Shoppers Drug Mart or Ulta.
Price: $52.00 CAN
If you love to highlight, you need this product in your life. Although it is more on the expensive side, it is well worth it as you get 4 full sized highlighters (commonly this is the price you would pay for only 1). These highlighters are so pigmented and long wearing, they are definitely one of my favourite formulas! The colour range is amazing and the colours are very versatile. I use them not only on the high points of my face, but on my shoulders and collar bones which looks so stunning when wearing a top that exposes those areas-when it catches the light you look like a glowing goddess. This can be purchased at Sephora or Ulta.
Price: $15.46 CAN
This is a liquid illuminator which can be used in many different ways!
A) You can mix this in with your foundation to give you an all over glow. By doing so, this will enhance the foundation by giving a super dewy finish.
B) You can also apply this on top of your foundation on specific areas such as your cheek bones and Cupid’s bow before setting with a powder highlighter. By applying the liquid before the powder it will intensify your highlight and make it last much longer and stay more vibrant!
Thank you for taking the time to read today, I hope this product list helped any of you looking to improve the quality of their skin or looking to achieve glowy/dewy skin for the summer!
