HOW TO KEEP THAT SUMMER GLOW
1 September 2015
With the rubbish weather were having right now in the UK I thought I would share some of my favourite bronzing products so you can keep that summer glow through into Autumn.
I don't know about you but i'm loving contouring and highlighted cheekbones right now and I'm not quite ready for autumn, So here's a few of my favourite products to keep your skin glowing.
When choosing a contour / bronzer theres a few different options you can pick from, I tend to go for a light / medium shade and stick to matte as I think it's easier to work with, you can always add shimmer using a highlighter. The Clarins Aquatic Treasures Summer Bronzing Compact* is a great addition to any collection, inside it has four shades to pick from. The compact is a really decent size making it easy to swizzle your brush and get a decent amount of product on the brush. I use the ecotools contour brush or a powder brush depending on intensity i'm going for. The Clarins bronzer is the perfect shade for my skintone, it lasts all day and is easy to build up. Nars Laguna is such a popular bronzer, I always see it in blog posts and raved about by bloggers. I have this Nars Virtual Domination palette which is such a great product as inside is the Miss Liberty highlighting powder and 3 blushers. Laguna is a matte bronzer, it's a slightly darker shade but once its blended its perfect and so versatile. Laguna is such a lovely pigmented bronzer, it's such a great quality product. I recently picked up this Seventeen Define and Conquer kit, you can read my full review here. It's a really handy kit with a contour and highlight inside. The contour is such a versatile shade and a great quality contour and the highlight is a matte powder. I find this sets my concealer really well so I use this in areas that I have used concealer to highlight. For £5.99 this is an absolute bargain and I really reccommend it, I will be buying another one when I've used this one. Finally I thought i'd include my hourglass ambient lighting palette, this is a great palette for highlighting and setting your foundation. It gives the skin that shimmer and glow, the ambient palette has three different shades and is easy to use. The product is a versatile product, you can use it to highlight or add it to other products. It's a fine powder so it's quite natural but you can build up the product easily. I'm going to Ibiza in two weeks so i'm not ready to let summer go just yet, maybe when I get back i'll get into Autumn mode!
