I dont know about you, but right now Im as pale as a cucumber, so this summer I want to freaking glow, man. Magazines, daily talk shows, your grandmother, your grandmother’s cat, they all talk about it, “how to achieve that perfect radiance,” like your shimmering from the inside, or like youve been kissed by the sun. Well, with summer fast approaching or for some of you, already here, Ive got a few products that may help you achieve that perfect sparkle, like youve spent the last couple of days doing nothing but basking in the beautiful sun… or making out on the beach with the Brazilian guy you met over vacation.
NOTE: These products are reviewed and placed here for individual enjoyment. Im not saying use them all together. Each one of them creates a sparkle and radiance all by themselves. This is not a step by step guide though!
Basic Skin Items
Neutrogena Bar Soap (pic #1) A good complexion is as good as anything, but I heard that products like Proactive or just a simple Biore face scrub can leave your face stripped of all of its natural body oils. This summer, put away the bottles for a day and wash with a simple bar soap. It has no extra chemicals or harsh materials in it to really do anything to your skin except clean it, so this summer, be a little more natural. I use Neautrogena Bar Soap. Approx. $4.00
Aveeno Sunblock SPF 30 (pic #4) Probably the most important thing I will say here is use sunblock lotion. Skin cancer is not chic people! Approx. $10.00
Lorac Double Feature Highlighter/Concealer (pic #2) I use the highlighter part of this only, (because I dont really use concealer. My idea is, if you look at them fiercely, with confidence and attitude, they wont be able to look anywhere else but your eyes.) The highlighter basically works to define your cheekbones (or brow bones if you want) and to add a little shimmer. Its become one of my favorite beauty items lately. Approx. $24.00
Revlon Eyeliner in Antiqued Gold (pic #3) Jee, I absolutely adore this eyeliner. Its sooo gorgeous on, and as the Incan’s said “Gold is the sweat of the sun.” I couldnt agree more. Approx. $8.00
For these bronzing products sweep either one of these powders across your temples, the hollow in your collar bones, chin, nose, cheekbones, and a bit on your forehead for a more shimmer sunkissed tint.
Maybelline Expert Wear Stay True Bronzer (pic #5) This no oil bronzer is helpful for a glimmer look of sunny days. Approx. $5.00
Wetslicks in Lemon Splashspritzers (pic #7) So maybe you dont wanna tint your skin or add 24k gold to your face. No biggie. Heres a simple product to give you a glint of sunshine. Tab a bit on your lips and youre off! Approx. $11.00
Alright, ladies (and gentlemen…?) Ive given you a few product bios and my thoughts. Now go! Go and glimmer like youre slimmer than Irina Lazareanu ! I hope this helped! Oh! And I want to know, whats your favorite sunkissed products?
Goodnight and goodluck,
