The summer holidays are nearly over, just a few more weeks left and Autumn will be back. I'm quite excited for summer to be over as next month is my birthday, I will be turning 25 and I am also having my baby shower next month which is super exciting! Our little bubba is due end of October/ first week of November which I'm really excited about so i've been counting down the days of summer. 

My favourite thing about summer is looking sunkissed, I love going crazy with the bronzer and highlighter to create that holiday glow! Today's post is all about how to fake that summer glow using some fab products from Rimmel. 

If you are not going on holiday then you probably won't get a sunkissed holiday glow unless you are going to fake it as the weather in the UK right now is all over the place. Here's a few tips and products you can use to achieve a gorgeous glow. 

The Rimmel Radiance shimmer brick is a really good all round product and such a bargain at just £5.99* The multi-tonal bronzing powder creates a healthy glow, it shimmers so is perfect for a sunkissed summery glow. I love that you can use a big powder brush and sweep all over for a gorgeous bronzed look or use a smaller brush and use it as a contour, using the bronzer to create the glow and highlighter to set the look and to amplify the cheeks. 

The Rimmel Insta Duo Contour stick* is another one of my favourites this summer, it's super easy to use and makes contouring so simple. One end is contour and the other highlight so you can define and enhance your facial features. Really easy to blend out and comes in 3 shade options. 

The Rimmel London Sculpting palette by Kate* is another must have this summer. This 3 in 1 kit makes that subtle summer glow super easy to achieve. Step 1 is highlight, use this to catch the light on your cheek bones, brow bones and down the bridge of your nose Step 2 is contour, the darker shade is used to define and recede areas that you don't want to emphasise like the jaw line, hair line and finally step 3 is the shimmer powder blush which adds that pop of colour. Leaving you looking fresh and healthy.

Finally for that all over glow grab yourself a tube of Sun Shimmer instant tan,* I haven't tried this yet as i'm not very good at applying tan, and honestly i'm just too lazy but the reviews on this one are really good, I like that it's a matte finish and it's water resistant so perfect for the warmer days. 

What are your must haves for that summer glow? How do you create a sunkissed look? Have you tried any of these Rimmel products?
