The beauty products you need, to achieve a Sun-kissed look without sun damage


Hey Ladies

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:

Vita liberate Trystal Mineral Loose Bronzing Powder

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.

Estee Lauder ‘Bronze Goddess’ Powder

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:

Pixi Hello Glow!

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 – Dew Drops Coconut Gel Highlighter

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:

Clinique ‘Pop Lip’ Color & Primer

I use the color “nude pop” its a beautiful rosy nude and gives your lips rich color and a primer all in one.

Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment in Honey

A bestselling, cult-favorite lip treatment with SPF 15 that moisturizes, protects and smooths the lips in clear and sheer or buildable color.
