HOW TO GET A NATURAL SUMMER GLOW

There is nothing prettier than a natural looking Summer glow.  With Summer just around the corner, here are a few products I keep in my bag to get a sun free radiant looking tan.

I start by applying this tan lotion (it smells like Vanilla!) every other night before bed.  I was really bad about wearing sunscreen growing up and unfortunately used tanning beds a lot in high school.  Now I am obsessive about wearing sunscreen every single day!

Before applying my makeup, I use this SPF 30 moisturizer.  In the Summer, this CC cream is perfect for everyday wear and if I want more coverage, this longwear waterproof foundation is great.

My favorite product I’ve used year after year is this mineralize skinfinish powder in the color ‘Cheeky Bronze.’  I swipe it across my cheeks and neck for the prettiest glow.  If you are looking to add a new blush/bronzer to your bag, this should be it.

I’m currently wearing this natural looking lipliner in ‘In Control’ with this lipstick in ‘Pale Mauve.’  For eyeshadow, I am loving the Naked3 Palette by Urban Decay.  It has a mix of sparkle and matte shades that can work with any eye color.

My last step is to use this Monoi body glow oil.  It leaves a subtle beach scent and a soft glow.

It also helps to drink a ton of water.  The easiest way to drink is to always carry a bottle with you.  I keep a 1.5 Liter bottle with me at all times and try to drink at list two of them a day.  It has made a huge difference in my skin.  If you don’t like regular water, La Croix and Spindrift sparkling waters are so good!

 I’ve been wearing this lightweight sweater (under $70) on repeat.  It looks really cute layered over this cami and I’ve been pairing it with ripped jeans and nude heels for a casual day to night look.
