6 Ways To Shimmer Through Summer

Sparkle with us at BWB by enjoying one or all of our top six glistening products.

I love when the days of summer finally arrive. Spring showers give way for blooming flowers, warm rays of sunshine, lazy vacations and relaxed routines. Summer days also inspire make-up and beauty products that are lighter and more playful. What better way to embrace days at the beach, al fresco dining and skin baring fashions than with products that shimmer, shine and embrace summer’s luminosity?

Captain Blankenship’s Golden Waves Sea Salt Shimmer Spray

It adds a glistening twist to one of the most popular hair products of summer. Not only does this sea salt spray give you perfectly tousled beach hair, it also includes gold mica to add a sexy shimmer to your beautiful locks. The added bonus is its other star ingredients; Aloe Vera gel, sea kelp extract and organic essential oils ensure a healthy balanced scalp.
Whenever I am having a bad hair day this spray saves me and immediately turns my unruly hair into golden, sexy locks.

Omorovicza Gold Shimmer Oil

The essence of summer romance. This luxurious and nourishing body oil uses jojoba, rice bran, apricot and carrot seed oils to leave your skin soft and supple. The gold particles add a touch of sparkle all over your body and the light scent of ylang-ylang is perfect for a summer evening.
I love to apply this after a day at the beach before going out for the evening. It leaves my skin feeling soothed, soft and sensual.

Jane Iredale’s 24-Karat Gold Dust

Shimmer versatility at its finest. Made of mica, this dust may be used on its own as a highlighter on your cheekbones, eyes and décolletage. You can also get creative and mix it with your favorite lip gloss, cheek tint or body cream. This product also makes a great travel companion, allowing you to shimmer anywhere you go without having to pack extra products.
Not surprisingly, the French girl in me prefers the champagne dust but it is also available in gold and silver.

RMS Organic Eye Polish

It is not only nourishing for the eyes, but it is also the ideal eye polish for summer. Rosemary extract and coconut, jojoba and cacao oils allow it to moisturize even the driest of eyelids. Its sheer metallic wash of color offers a hint of natural shimmer that may be layered for a more dramatic effect. This is the only eye polish you will need for summer and, considering it is available in 8 colors, there is a perfect shade for everyone.
My go-to is Solar, a shimmering bronze but this summer may call for the metallic baby blue color called Inspire.

Chantecaille Galactic Lip Shine

This lip shine provides a beautiful, classy summer shimmer for your lips. Raspberry seed oil, vitamin E, wild mango and shea butter make it not only a gloss, but a lip serum as well. The lip shine is perfect on its own and also may be used to add a delicate shine to your favorite lipsticks…We at B&WB love the Moonlight shade but definitely try Aurora and Polaris for your own galactic inspired lips. Buy it here.

Trust Fund Beauty Nail Polish

Bring fun back to nail polish. And what better time to have fun than summer when your toes are wiggling in the sand? It is vegan, GMO free, paraben free and cruelty free, appealing to both our conscience and wellbeing.
Try Should Come With A Warning, a beautiful pastel coral shimmer or Champagne Problems, a metallic gold foil…my favorite is Magical AF, a glittery shade reminiscent of confetti. It is great on its own or layered over other colors and it lasts forever!

Embrace the shimmer, BWB readers, and enjoy, laugh and love all summer long!
