Our summer makeup picks for the perfect bronze glow
Summer is here and now is the perfect time to lighten your look with beautifying bronzers and highlighters. The bronzers available today come in creams, serums, gels, and natural powders, producing that natural summer glow. Layering this look with a magic highlighter ensures that sexy, dewy skin that summer seems to call for.
Here are a few BWB favorites that will serve the many different preferences regarding make-up application and ingredients. Prepare to get your bronze on.
Chantecaille’s Poudre Lumière approaches bronzing with a romance and softness they are well known for. This limited-edition formula’s micro-fine luminescent pearls wash your skin in ambient light. Just think English garden, surrounded by flowers in mid-summer. Their Compact Soleil Bronzers come in three shades that compliment the lovely feel of these bronzing tools. St. Barth’s is our favorite here at BWB.
By Terry’s Tea To Tan Face & Body Summer Edition is a trusty travel companion that will grant you beautifully bronzed skin anywhere the summer takes you. Just a couple of sprays feeds your skin antioxidant-rich cherry extract and gets you to golden goddess in no time. Check out the Sun Designer Palette, as well, which has stunning accents for eyes, cheeks and face. For some skin therapy, try the 2-in-1 combo, Terrybly Densiliss Anti-Wrinkle Blur Bronzing Serum, which boosts collagen and fibroblasts to firm the skin, addressing fine lines while reducing redness and uneven skin tone. This bronzer can easily replace your daytime serum and tinted moisturizer, leaving your skin exquisite and loaded with antioxidants. We recommend No-3-Sun Bronze!
ILIA Beauty, known for their organic ingredients and sustainable approach to beauty, has combined two of their best sellers to deliver the perfect sun-kissed glow. Start with their Multi-Stick in All Of Me, a universal healthy tint of color, then follow with Illuminator in Sway, a lovely shimmer of gold. This duo will give you a cover girl golden complexion.
Jane Iredale continues to enchant us with her new color additions, which nicely complement her bronzing products. BWB simply loves the new Peaches + Cream Bronzer, and they’re even refillable. With four different shades to choose from, either combine for an allover bronzing effect, or use them separately to contour and highlight. The In Touch Cream Blush in Candid effortlessly melts into the skin. With ingredients like moringa seed and tangerine peel oils, your skin will feel as healthy as it looks.
With these bronzed beauties in tow, embrace the endless days of summer looking fresh, sun-kissed and fabulous.
