How to achieve a sun-kissed look full of life becomes a top question for those looking to stay on trend for the hotter days. Whether you have a pale complexion like me, or were blessed with natural golden brown skin, there is a Bronzed Goddess in all of us. In the summer i believe there is nothing prettier than a sun-kissed face that looks like you just spent 10 days in the Bahamas. The best? You don’t have to expose yourself to damaging sun-rays to achieve a healthy glow. Here i have rounded up the products i use daily to achieve the perfect summer tan.
The Best Beauty Products To Achieve A Sun-kissed Look Without Sun Damage
Minimal foundation, tinted moisturizer or a BB cream is the key to getting that natural glow even before you step out into the sun. Start with moisturizing your skin. If the skin is flaky you will have a hard time achieving a smooth surface. Go for a tinted moisturizer if you want to skip foundation. Once you are happy with the base color of your face reach for the bronzer.
My favorites are:
A loose mineral bronzing powder that creates a tan lasting up to five days plus a luxury kabuki brush. There is also a pressed powder version great for traveling.
This smooth, oil-free powder gives face, shoulders, and decolletage a seductively bronzed look. Check out my review on the whole Estee Lauder bronze goddess collection.
Apply the product where the sun would naturally hit the face – under your cheekbones, on the temples, on the bridge of the nose, on your chin, under the jaw line and blend it on your neck softly to create a balance between your face and neck.
Add a subtle shimmer:
Go for a balanced shimmer using a highlighter. I prefer a cream highlighter since it will give you that dewy look. The trick is to not overdue it and to just have a hint of glow. Apply at the top of your cheekbones and bridge of your nose.
My Favorites are:
Achieve a lit-from-within complexion with the Pixi Hello Glow!. The three-piece set combines a liquid highlighter, powder blush duo and lip plumping gloss to help you create an effortlessly radiant look
Marc Jacobs Beauty’s illuminating ‘Dew Drops’ highlighter smells indeed like coconut and gives you a great blend-able shimmer that lasts all day
Add the perfect lipstick:
You are not finished just yet. To make the tan pop more finish off with the perfect #lippie. I usually wear a more nude, peachy color to complete that beachy sun-kissed look.
My favorites are:
I use the color “nude pop” its a beautiful rosy nude and gives your lips rich color and a primer all in one.
A bestselling, cult-favorite lip treatment with SPF 15 that moisturizes, protects and smooths the lips in clear and sheer or buildable color.
