Keeping The Summer Alive

Hi Lovlies,

Labor Day is upon us and that always means the eventual end of summer. This is the time to stretch the good vibes and great looks of summer beyond September by keeping­ that fresh glow. I'm laying out my pro picks on the best products and methods that will keep you streak free and glowy well in to fall.

Strobing - Let's start with the new makeup trend of strobing. Its great way to build a relate-able glow by placing a luminizing product only on certain to highlight certain areas to maximize your glow. To get the glow place a luminizer on the bridge of you nose, above your cheekbones, above your cupid's bow and your brow bone.  . If you are using a liquid or cream luminizer your fingers are fine. Remember a little goes a long way. Just dot a minimal amount in these areas I discussed and blend by patting on gently. You can also use a Beauty Blender as well. If you are using a powder make sure to use a small fluffy brush that can trace those small areas on your face perfectly leave the proper amount of defused shimmer on your face

Bronzer - You want to make sure to concentrate on the areas that the sun will hit the most; so the color looks naturally sun kissed. Areas like your cheeks, forehead and nose. I also dust some color down my clients jawbone as well to make sure that the tan look is distributed evenly. If you are using a powder make sure to grab a large brush so the rich tone can defused evenly on these large areas. Who wants to look streaky or muddy. If you are using a liquid bronzer it's always great to mix about 2 or 3 drops in your foundation. This will definitely make sure that you have that lit from within glow.

Here are some of my favs:

Liquids/Creams

Revlon - PhotoReady Skinlights Face Illuminator

Bronze Light is a great choice for darker skin tones. While Peach Light is a great choice to add a bronzy peachy glow to light to medium skin tones

Love, love, love this product its a moisturizer & glow for body and face that is also transfer resistant and non-staining. It seriously doesn't move so I use it on my bridal clients and celebs on the red carpet. Also another plus is the selection of colors for every skin tone. But I always switch them up to get different results.

This is a staple in my kit and also my personal makeup bag. I love the look that it gives on my dark brown skin tone for a sun-kissed glow without the shine. I use Ebony Bronze; however there are two other shades for lighter and medium dark skin tone
