Beauty Products for an Effortless Summer Glow

Ciao Bella,

On my latest Instagram post, I shared some of my go-to products for a summer glow. I thought I would do a dedicated blog post as well, since there’s only so much you can say in an IG caption. Below is a snapshot of my favourites, which I hope will become your favourites too.


Chanel Tan de Soleil. Has there ever been a more talked about cream bronzer extraordinnaire? I originally heard Jaclyn Hill raving about this and how no matter how many times she used it, it never ran out. Girl was right! It’s a beautiful, natural looking cream to powder bronzer that is surreal gorgeous and worth the investment.

Anastasia Beverly Hills Gloss in ‘Bronzed’. Honestly, any ABH gloss is king in my mind. This shade is more of a gilded lip topper but I love the glosses from Anastasia because they are so rich and creamy and they smell delicious.

Josie Maran Surreal Skin Argan Finishing Balm is a gorgeous moisturizer/blurring/subtle iridescent hybrid argan infused primer that I love to use over dimethicone-y slippery pore filling type primers. It makes my skin feel nourished, not like I’m just putting another layer of makeup on.

Laura Mercier Candleglow Soft Luminous Foundation is my all time fave glowy foundation that isn’t heavy (see full review here), and the Laura Mercier Caviar Stick Eyeshadow in ‘Copper’ is so gilded and metallic, I’ve never been able to replicate it’s luxurious finish with powder products.

Nars Dual-Intensity Blush in ‘Frenzy’ is coral perfection, and I love using the gold highlight at the same time on my cheekbones for extra glam. It’s buildable so you won’t look like a clown if you over-saturate the brush.

Guerlain Terracotta Reve D’ete Tinted Skincare Jelly has been spamming you all over my IG feed this summer. Yes the packaging is beautiful, and yes, this gives you an instant touch of bronze when you want to step out of the house with a bare face. Or even you want to add a little something something to natural makeup, when you want to live, when you want to be extra, whenever the hell.

Anastasia Beverly Hills x Amrezy Highligher (duh). Think ‘Champagne Pop’ but updated, a tad more natural and better packaging. It was limited edition but I’m including it anyways because it’s great! Try other ABH highlights here, because if you haven’t tried them before you haven’t lived.



Hope you guys enjoyed this post! What are your faves for a glowy look?
