Summer Glow Essentials.

Spring is here and summer is fast approaching, it’s literally the perfect time to rock a glowy and dewy look. Don’t get me wrong, I think a glowy look can be worn all year round. You don’t need to create your makeup look based on a specific season. Personally, I don’t like a matte look and I much prefer having glowy looking skin.

In today’s post, I wanted to share with you some must-haves you need to have in your makeup kit in order to achieve that glowing & radiant looking skin which includes some new gems I discovered. Without further ado, let’s jump into the post!

Le printemps est là et l’été approche à grands pas, c’est littéralement le moment idéal pour porter un look brillant et rosé. Ne vous méprenez pas, je pense qu’un look brillant peut être porté toute l’année. Vous n’avez pas besoin de créer votre maquillage en fonction d’une saison spécifique. Personnellement, je n’aime pas un look mat et je préfère de loin avoir une peau d’apparence lumineuse.

Dans le post d’aujourd’hui, je voulais partager avec vous quelques incontournables que vous devez avoir dans votre kit de maquillage afin d’obtenir cette peau d’apparence éclatante et radieuse qui comprend de nouvelles gemmes que j’ai découvertes. Sans plus tarder, passons au poste!

LIQUID HIGHLIGHTER

I think everyone loves having glowy and luminous skin during the summer. One of the ways you can achieve that is by using highlighters but more specifically liquid highlighters. Bali Body were kind enough to send me a couple of products to try and so far my favourite products are their highlighter stick which is available in 3 different shades: Moonlight, Rose Gold and Sunkissed.

I prefer liquid highlighters over powder highlighters for various different reasons. One, they give a very natural finish without looking over the top if you know what I mean. Two, you can mix them with other products. You can mix them with your foundation, BB cream, moisturiser, facial oil, etc.

One of the tips I would give when using liquid highlighters is to either mix it with your base products such as foundation, moisturiser, etc. or to apply directly on to your skin before using any other products – that way it will look more natural and give a glow from within.

If you are looking for liquid highlighters, I would highly recommend to check out these Bali Body Highlighter Sticks! Not only is the packaging so pretty but the shades are absolutely gorgeous as well! Their formula is very creamy and blends beautifully into your skin and create a pretty luminous glow.

Moonlit is a beautiful champagne shade, Rose Gold as its name is a pretty rosy shade and Sunkissed is a gorgeous gold shade. Depending on your preference, you can use those shades as a highlighter, eyeshadow, blush, etc. Rose Gold and Sunkissed are just absolutely stunning as an eyeshadow!

What I love about these highlighters is the fact they are not too shimmery to the point there are chunks of glitter visible on your skin. Another thing I love about them is their wand applicator. It pretty much gives you the perfect amount to use and it makes sure that you don’t take a lot of product in one go. I would recommend to blend the highlighter as soon as you apply it, if you do decide to use it directly on your skin because it dries down very quickly.

BB CREAM

Another must-have product is obviously a BB cream! It can be very difficult to wear a full face of makeup during the summer especially when it’s boiling hot outside. However, you can still achieve that look using less products for example a great alternative of foundation is a BB or CC cream. The Bali Body BB Cream SPF15 is the perfect option if you are looking for a multitasking beauty cream that combines a sunscreen, foundation and anti-ageing moisturiser.

Although it’s not full coverage, it still provides a good amount of coverage while giving a healthy dewy glow. Plus, it evens out your skin tone nicely! There are 4 shades available and I picked the shade “Tan” which is perfect if you have olive skin tone. It contains hyaluronic acid which you already know, is so good for your skin as well as marine collagen and green tea extract. All those ingredients are amazing for your skin in terms of hydration.

TANNING & BODY OIL

As you all already probably know, I’m a huge fan of facial oils – they literally do wonders on your skin! Something that I’ve only came across recently is body oil and all thanks to Bali Body! Their Tanning & Body Oil SPF6 can be used along your lotion/body cream to moisturise as well as tan your skin. How cool is that?!

It claims to soothe, protect and hydrate your skin while you work on achieving a deep sun tan. My first impression was the fact it was lightweight and it didn’t flare up my eczema areas either which is great! In addition, it didn’t make my skin sensitive and it truly moisturised my skin. My skin is extremely dry and I didn’t have any dry patches at all and I didn’t even need to reapply or apply any other products.

Overall, if you are looking for beauty products to use during the summertime such as suncare products, self tan, skincare or even makeup products – make sure to check out Bali Body. I’m really impressed by their products and my favourite has to be their highlighter stick!
