You know the question that I get all the time? How to get a summer glow! This is especially useful if you have a summer getaway, wedding or other event coming up. Today I want to show you my tips and tricks to achieve the perfect summer glow, all without damaging your skin from harmful UV rays. The key is to find the products that give you natural looking results. Luckily, Nordstrom Beauty offers all of the best brands and products to give your skin that effortless sun-kissed look all season long, while still protecting your skin. It is my one-stop shop for all of my summer beauty essentials. Let’s take a look!
How to get the perfect summer glow
The products you use will make or break your look. You have to use high-quality products that are long-lasting and good for your skin to really attain a natural, effortless look. The first item you need is the perfect summer foundation. I use Charlotte Tilbury’s Airbrush Flawless Foundation and Hollywood Flawless Filter & Highlighter. It feels light on your skin and truly makes your skin look flawless. Now, if you can find a foundation you love that includes SPF, then all the better. A great option is Tom Ford’s Soft Radiance Foundation with SPF 50. I have also been meaning to try Bobbi Brown’s Intensive Serum Foundation with SPF 30/40 and Skin Long-Wear Fluid Powder Foundation SPF 20. If you’re looking for a tinted moisturizer for everyday wear, then try this Soleil Glow Tinted Moisturizer with SPF 20 or this Nude Finish Tinted Moisturizer with SPF 15.
The next step to an effortless summer glow is to find a great highlighter and bronzer. The bronzers that I swear by are Charlotte Tilbury’s bronzing powder and bronze & glow contour duo. They are lightweight and blend seamlessly. Tom Ford’s Soleil bronzer and Soleil sheer highlighting duo are other products that will definitely give you the beautiful glow you’re looking for. Now that you have the products, let’s talk application. Lightly apply on your cheekbones, jawline, hairline and the bridge of your nose and then blend for a gorgeous and flawless look. I use this bronzer and blush brush for a seamless application.
Now let’s look at products to use for an overall body glow. A product that I swear by is this body shimmer highlight lotion. It is amazing! Not only does it hydrate your skin, but it also gives you a gorgeous and natural looking glow. Just blend it with your favorite body lotion if you want a lighter tan. This Soleil blanc shimmering body oil is another product that hydrates and illuminates your skin.
The truth is, you can apply all of the make-up and body products you want, but if you are not habitual in your daily skincare regime, then you will not have healthy and glowing skin this summer. Hydration and cleansing is key! This Goddess Cleansing Ritual duo keeps my skin looking fresh and healthy. I also swear by Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Cream and Creamy Eye Treatment. I recommend the Ultra Facial Cream with broad spectrum SPF 30 and the Ultra Facial Moisturizer with broad spectrum SPF 30 for the summer months. You can never over protect your skin from the sun!
I hope these tips and products help you attain your skin goals this summer. Shop more of my favorite summer beauty products below. Also, check out more must-have beauty products for summer HERE.
