Summer Glow!

Hello, everyone! Happy July!
The weather is getting warmer day by day as we are in the heart of summer. Here in Greece, we had the hottest week so far these last days of June, up to 42°C degrees). Time to get a sun kissed look and this summer glow we all love, especially if you are going on holidays anytime soon. For pale skin tone face or body color you might need a little more help but what the heck? Every beauty brand lunches at least 2-3 products every summer which easily help you gain a glowing bronzed look. Let’s have a look in a few of them.


Benefit Hoola Lite

This a lighter version of the original Hoola bronzer, perfect for fair complexions or for use as an all-over finishing powder. Hoola Lite instantly warms your complexion, leaving you with a healthy, believable glow 365 days a year. The finely milled matte bronzer blends on smoothly and seamlessly!

Bobbi Brown Bronze Shimmer Brick Compact

This is an all-in-one shimmering powder which creates a deep bronzy glow. You can use it as a bronzer, blush or highlighter and as an eyeshadow as well.

Hourglass Ambient Lighting Bronzer Luminous Bronze Light

Hourglass has some of the most gorgeous bronzers and blushes, loved by every makeup addict around the world (packaging is amazingly beautiful also). Luminous Bronze Light is a medium tan shade infused with Luminous Light, a champagne pearl powder, for a softer, candlelit warmth. It is ideal for fair/light complexions for a natural sun kissed glow and healthy looking face.

Benefit Cosmetics Sun Beam Golden-Bronze Liquid Highlighter

This is a golden bronze complexion highlighter suitable for all skin tones. For a luminous, bronzed glow use Sun Beam over makeup where the light would naturally hit your face (cheekbones, browbones, down your nose, and on the cupid’s bow).

Bobbi Brown High Shimmer Lip Gloss

With a special mix of pearls in a clear base this High Shimmer Lip Gloss provides a super-reflective effect. Enriched with vitamin, conditions lips while providing non-sticky but long-lasting color. Bare Sparkle is the shade I would choose, a champagne with pearl.

St. Tropez  Self Tan Luxe Dry Oil

I love dry oils and this luxurious self tanner (which gives a natural golden glow) could be possible one of my favorites. Quick drying and non greasy, easy to apply  and naturally fragranced with essential oils for no self tan smell, is the best choice for a self tan which lasts up to 10 days.

These are all my suggestions and products I would choose for a bronzed  glowing makeup look, perfect for fair skin tones. What is your favorite ”get the summer glow” product? Let us know in the comment section below.

As always, thank you for visiting and have a great day!
