How to Maintain Your Summer Glow All Year Long
Summer may be over but that doesn't mean you have to say goodbye to your glowy skin. In fact, you can extend your summer glow all year long with the right skincare and makeup products in your arsenal.
Use Self-Tanner On a Regular Basis
Applying self-tanner regularly is one of the most common (and effective) ways to maintain your summer glow. TAN-LUXE's products are loved for being highly effective and nourishing for skin–their super glow body serum has hyaluronic acid to keep your skin hydrated. If you're looking for a functional and innovative applicator, try TAN-LUXE'S wonder oil, which has a rollerball applicator, or the Sisley Paris self-tanner lotion, which comes with a mit for even application. For a formula that you can use on your body and your face, try the Soleil Toujours' organic sunless tanning lotion and Clarins' self-tanning milky lotion.
A High-Performance Highlighter Is Essential
A great highlighter can help you seamlessly achieve a glowy beauty look. Hourglass has a top-notch face palette that includes a bronzer, blush, highlighter, and finishing powder all in one. ILIA's highlighter powder has a cult-like following thanks to its hydrating ingredients, while Shiseido's dew highlighter is a long-lasting formula for a luminous look that lasts all day. Charlotte Tilbury's highlighter wand has an easy to use the applicator for an even and blended look, while Josie Maran's Argan oil-filled highlighter stick adds a highlighted dimension to your face with an easy swipe application.
Use Glow-Specific Skincare Products
Don't forget to add a few glow-specific products to your skincare routine. Soleil Toujours has a mineral glow sunscreen that adds a luminous element to your daily sun care products, plus an eye glow illuminator specifically formulated to brighten up the area around your eyes. The celebrity-loved skincare guru Dr. Barbara Sturm created glow drops, a formula that has anti-aging and hydrating properties to keep your skin looking fresh and revitalized. goop's GOOPGLOW line includes a vitamin c and hyaluronic acid serum made to brighten dull skin, while Caudalie's Vinoperfect brightening glycolic essence removes dead skin to achieve a radiant and smooth look.
Make a Superpower Bronzer Your BFF
Bronzer is a girl's best friend when it comes to achieving a glowy look. If you want a one-and-done product for all of your face makeup needs, NARS has a blush and bronzer duo that will leave you with sun-kissed skin. Kosas' sun show moisturizing baked bronzer is filled with hydrating ingredients that will help your skin look smoother while also turning up the glow. The ambient lighting bronzer from Hourglass will give you a natural-looking and even glow. Fenty Beauty's cheeks out freestyle cream bronzer and Rms Beauty's bronzer are two high-performance cream bronzer formulas that are lightweight and non-oily for easy application.
