Products to achieve the perfect bronzy summer look.
I am all about having that “glow,” that perfect summer bronzy look. I want to share some of my go-to products and a few of my new favorite things.
BECCA Shimmering Skin Perfector I’ve talked about this product before and believe it or not I still can’t get enough! It has a perfect consistency and the ideal amount of shimmer. I use the “Topaz” shade which has a slight tint to it. When I am in a rush, I wear this alone for a dewy look with a subtle shine. For achieving the bronze look, I add a pump of this with my foundation, mix and apply like normal.
Star Bronzer Natural Glow by Lancome I love this. After I apply my foundation/shimmer mix I brush this all over my face, focusing on my cheeks and forehead. I use the “05 Golden” shade and it is very light with tiny gold flecks. This product adds the softness to my bronze look.
Too Faced Dark Chocolate Soleil Bronzer When I first purchased this bronzer, I didn’t think the color was deep enough. But I quickly realized it is a great neutral color for my cheeks. I use shade “deep/tan.” This is a matte bronzer and I wear it as a blush and add it as another layer for achieving my summer look. Oh! A bonus, it smells just like chocolate!
The Barest Bronzer by Estee Lauder This is the final layer to my look. It has more of a red undertone, so I use it on the apples of my cheeks and then swipe it across my forehead and apply a bit on my eyelids. This also has a bit of gold shimmer and really pulls the entire look together.
Cover FX Highlighting Powder I wear this almost every day. It is one of my FAVORITE highlighters. This was actually something I received as a gift and became obsessed with! The formula is smooth, it blends effortlessly and it is the perfect bronzy-gold color. I use shade “Candlelight,” and it is simply beautiful. I apply this to the tops of my cheeks, my temples, the bridge of my nose and on my cupid’s bow. Now, I am glowtastic.
Marc Jacobs Limited Edition “The Bronze Brush” No. 12 Okay, ya’ll. This brush is pricey, but OMG it is the BOMB! I have been using it to apply ALL of my bronzer products. The bristles are so thick, yet soft and firm it feels so good on my face. I seriously get excited when it’s time to use it. I am anxiously waiting for more brushes like this!
There you have it! All of the products needed to get all bronzed up for summer. You will be surprised how many compliments you get about your “tan” or “glow.” Nope, no tan over here, just the perfect bronzy glow!
