Get Your Glow On

Want to get that dewy summer glow?

A few of my readers have been dying to know my favorite way to get gorgeous, summery skin and fast! So here’s what I do:

Aveeno Positively Radiant Moisturizer with SPF 30

1. Exfoliate

Knock off all the dead skin cells with an exfoliator when you wash your face. I love Aveeno Positively Radiant Exfoliator with Skin Brighteners. It totally wakes up your skin!

2. Moisturize

Probably the most important step in the whole process. If your skin is dry, it’s not going to be dewy. My favorite is Aveeno Positively Radiant with SPF 30 (Sunscreen is a must!) Apply the moisturizer directly on to your face.

Nars Bronzer in Laguna

2. Bronze-ify

Take your favorite bronzer (mine is Nars Laguna) and rub your finger (or a makeup sponge) into it until you get a decent “thick” amount on either your finger or the sponge. (I like to use my fingers because I can actually feel how much is there). Do not apply. (Yet!)

Korres Quercetin & Oak Age Reversing Face Primer

3. Primer

Use your favorite water-based makeup primer. I love Korres QUERCETIN & OAK Age-reversing Face Primer. It’s all natural and water-based so rather than matte-fying like a silcone-based primer, your skin will be dewy and glowing. Do not apply yet……

4. Mix

Either on your fingers or on your sponge, mix the face primer and the bronzer together. If the color is too sheer, add more bronzer…too dark, add more primer. How bronze you want to be is totally up to you–but rather than looking like you’ve caked on your bronzer, the result with be sheer and glowy, like a custom tinted moisturizer!

Now you’ve got a glowy, bronzed face (and don’t forget your neck!) that will stay on all day (courtesy of the face primer!)

Nars Orgasm Blush

Beauty For Real "See the Light" Light-Up Lip Gloss in "Fireworks"

5. Blush

I like to finish with a warm glowy peach blush, like Nars Orgasm or Super Orgasm. If you want to step it up, try the Nars Illuminator in Orgasm…but any peach flecked with gold will do the trick!

6. Lips

Finish with a sheer orangey or peach gloss, I love Beauty For Real’s “See the Light” light-up lip gloss in “Fireworks”.
