How We Fake The Summer Glow
There are still few months between us and summer holidays. But we are sick to look sick. We want to get the summer glow and we want it now. We put together a selection of beauty products that we are using daily to give us a fresh, healthy and summer look to show at work.
HOW WE FAKE THE SUMMER GLOW
First thing first. You need a bronzing powder. We love Clarins Bronzing and Blush Compact powder. It has four shades in one that mixed together give us the right amount of bronze and redness, like we just came back from the beach.
Some of us prefer a matte effect. In this case, our choice falls on Tom Ford Bronzing Powder n.02.
We are addicted to these MAC mineralise blushes. After applying the bronzing powder, we use ‘Petal Power’. Its shimmering texture, with little golden traces, adds to our cheeks the same effect we get when we come back from summer holidays. Our faces instantly reach a healthy glow.
Then we use ‘Just A Wisp’ as highlighter on our check bones. We also apply it on eyelids, as it was a eyeshadow, for a light day look.
If we want to emphasise our eyes, we play with different shades of bronze and pink. We found our perfect eyeshadow combination from the newest collaboration between Jennifer Lopez and Inglot. This mix of shimmering and matter eyeshadows are going to be our summer best friends.
JUST A LITTLE BIT OF EXTRA SUMMER GLOW.
We don’t abuse it, but on special occasions we like to cover our body with this creamy and delicious Givenchy Dhalia Divin refreshing body gel. The scent reflects the name: it’s divine!
Summer nights are still far, but you have an invitation for a party. Topshop highlighter sunbeam is the perfect golden highlighting powder to wear, at parties and night’s out, to show your perfect summer glow.

It's a real shame you didn't show us how it looks on the face :) when I look at cosmetics like that I can't really say if it would look good on me. Fortunately, I already was touched by the sun, I went on a trip in a cabrio and am tanned as during the summer. Nice post anyway.

I def fake a summer glow all year round - haha! My favorite routine is getting a weekly light spray tan with Too Faced chocolate soleil bronzer!

I am definitely a more of a blush than bronzer person so I am so happy to see blush as one of your recommendations here! Although bronzer and highlighter and oils are more well known, I feel that people often forget about blush and all the wonders it can do such as really brighten up your complexion adding a nice touch of colour! Great post dear!

Great recommendations! I love the eyeshadow recommendation too, with a bit of mascara and the blush it would be such a beautiful and natural look :)

I need to check out that range of products from Inglot - I love the shadows I have from them and J Lo is such a beauty icon for me!
