We all know it’s not best practice to stay out in the sun for too long or even make tanning a habit. But we all want that bronze glowing skin a la Jennifer Lopez, Beyonce and Kim Kardashian. I’ve been trying some new beauty products to achieve the look.
If you want to know how to get bronze glowing skin for summer – start with NARS. Right now I’m using NARS Illuminator in Orgasm. I mix a tiny bit with my BB cream foundation in the morning before applying it to my skin. Very sparingly, I focus the liquid bronzer on the high points of my cheeks and above my brows.
Once my foundation is applied, instead of using powder to set it, I’ve started using M.A.C Mineralize Skinfinish in Global Glow. This is seriously my new favourite beaut product! I use it to highlight my cheeks and brows. It gives the perfect high-frost metallic, bronzy finish.
I’ve been swapping my usual matte lipsticks this summer, for M.A.C Pro Longwear Lipglass. The colour, Ready or Not, is great by itself or with Velvet Teddy underneath. It’s the perfect glossy, nude lip wear.
I really love how the nude lip gloss doesn’t get lost or make me look washed out when I bronze out my skin. And for the bronze skin, the nude lips makes me look glowy in a more subtle and less va va voom way, like a dark matte lip colour would do.
How do you get your skin bronze and glowing for summer? Let me know your tips and tricks in the comments section below. I’d love to hear about new products to try.
