Easy summer glow

As the temperature rises, we’re all about quick, easy glowy skin using cream products.  Who wants to put on layers of makeup only to sweat it off a few minutes later?  Here are the products I’ve been reaching for to achieve a summer glow:

SUPER by Dr. Perricone Sun Kissed SPF 25 – This is going to be my go-to sunscreen for the summer.  It has an amazing sun kissed tint with very slight shimmers and is free of parabens, propylene glycol, mineral oil, phthalates, sulfates, synthetic dyes and fragrances.  I first saw this on The Gloss Goss, and Tali has a great swatch of it here.  I HIGHLY recommend this!

tarte smooth operator Amazonian clay tinted moisturizer with SPF 20 (in shade Agent 14) – As you can see from the picture, I’m almost done with this.  I love this tinted moisturizer for very light, imperceptible coverage.  It blends in really well into the skin, so I opted for a darker color to give me a slight tint.  Formulated without mineral oil, parabens, petrolatum, phthalates, synthetic dye, and synthetic fragrance.  I have quite a lot of tinted moisturizers to go through, but once I’m done with them, I will likely repurchase this.

clé de peau concealer (in Beige) – At $70, this is an extremely pricey concealer, and NOT worth it.  I use it because it’s in a stick form and easy to carry around with me.  I definitely would not recommend my friends to spend the money on this – it is a nice concealer but not worth the price.

Skindanavia No More Shine Makeup Finish spray – I have oily/combo skin and I use this to hold my base in place.

Anastasia Brow Fix + Brow Wiz in Medium Ash – normal eyebrow routine

NARS The Multiple in Orgasm – I LOVE NARS Multiples.  I have 4 or 5.  They are great for quick application and add such lovely color + shimmer to the face.  Just swipe on cheeks and blend in with fingers.

RMS Beauty Living Luminizer – We can’t talk about summertime glow without a highlight.  This all natural, cream highlight adds a healthy (yes, we have to say it again) glow to the face.  Apply with fingers to the upper cheekbones and underneath the brow bone.

No eye makeup – just simple, quick glowy skin.  Maybe mascara if I’m feeling particularly motivated, but with the summer heat, it’ll probably sweat off.

How do you achieve a summer glow?

    The Multiple is amazing – I can’t help but use year-round.

    + NARS Laguna bronzer. An oldie but a goodie. Works great with fair to light skin.

    I love my multiple esp for travel – I like Clinque bronzer’s too – got that from Casey. I think the Cle de Peau is over priced too but I did start using it under my eyes when I have super serious dark circles.
