What screams summer more than tan, glowing skin? While this look may be attractive to most, it is not the healthiest for our skin. In fact, many people don’t know that tanned skin is actually damaged skin. The melanin produced by your skin is its way of healing itself from the damage caused by the sun’s UV rays. We won’t bore you with the details, but just know that tanned isn’t a sign of healthy skin. In any case, tanned skin looks good. We get it. What if we told you, however, that this sought-after look could be achieved with a few beauty products?

Glow is a term that first comes to mind when talking about summer skin. It represents youth, health, hydration, and an overall flawless complexion. To ensure that your skin is glowing at all times, sometimes you just have to fake it by reaching for a highlighter. If you prefer cream products, we recommend trying out the Living Luminizer or the Luminizer X Quad from RMS Beauty. Both offer a subtle radiance that is entirely buildable. If you prefer powder products, we recommend the new ILIA Daylite Highlighting Powder. Available in 4 shades, this highlighter offers a beautiful glow in a long-lasting formula.
Bronzed skin is a must when trying to achieve a sunkissed look. As previously mentioned, bronzed skin is not healthy skin, so you have to fake it till you make it! Luckily, we offer a selection of bronzers that give you a naturally bronzed look without ever having to step foot in the sun. If you prefer a cream texture, we recommend you take a look at the Buriti Bronzer from RMS Beauty. Apply it with your fingers for a more controlled application or with a beauty blender. If you prefer a powder, discover ILIA’s new Nightlite Bronzing Powders, or Glo Skin Beauty’s Bronzer. For a contoured look, you can even try Glo Skin Beauty’s Contour Kit!
We’ve all gotten sunburnt. It hurts. It’s not fun. BUT, when the sunburn is subtle, it can sometimes look cute, right? It just gives you a flush of color, especially when the sun hit the contours of your face, your nose and cheeks. To try and recreate the look without the damage, we love adding a flush of color to the nose and connect it to the cheeks. For this effect, we love ILIA’s Multi-Stick in At Last and RMS’ Lip2Cheek in the shade Beloved. Both give you that kissed-by-the-sun look effortlessly.
