Makeup Wars: Best Products to Get That Summer Glow

Sent for review. Purchased by me. Contains affiliate links.

I'm perfectly happy to be Downton Abbey pale. I like it that way. But sometimes, a little glow just makes me happy! Here are the five products you need to get the perfect glow, be it bronze or ethereal.

Beautisol is the only self tanner I'll use. It barely smells, it never looks orange and it never gets scaly. It's hands down the best self-tanner on the market.

It Cosmetics CC + Bronzer with 50 SPF is an LE powerhouse! Not only do you get the good for your skin ingredients, the radiant glow and the sun protection, but you'll also get the look of a bronze goddess. The more your rub this in, the lighter the shade gets. It's easy to use, fades nicely and looks like you've just returned from the Caribbean!

Too Faced Pink Leopard Bronzer is my favorite powder bronzer. It's the perfect combo of sheen, color and bronze. It's not too dark for my fair skin, is really blendable and gives me the perfect glow.

For a sheer glow, I love Colour Pop's Smoke and Whistle's Highlighter. It's a taupe-y sheer shine that lasts.

For a slightly more golden glow, you can't do better than Mary Lou Manizer from The Balm. It's everyone's holy grail shimmering powder.

If you want to add a touch of serious shimmer to your foundation, add a drop of Becca's Moonstone or Pearl Shimmering Skin Perfector. It adds wattage to your glow unlike anything else!

  1. I've been so curious about the CC+ Bronzer! I'm thinking it might be a must-have when I need to add some life to my skin.

  2. I've heard great things about Mary Lou Manizer but I haven't tried it yet, I really should!

  3. Mary Lou-Manizer is great, and it lasts *so* long I find. I am nowhere near hitting pan after 6 months.
