Hands up who's looking to get their glow-game on??!! This article is for all of you who love to glow, sparkle, shine and be golden, inside and out.
Our three favourite ways to get your glow-game strong are:
+ Highlighters & Illuminisers
+ Organic Face Tan
There is no easier way to add a golden summer glow than lightly dusting your favourite bronzer and dabbing a little illuminiser or highlighter to your best angles of your face, neck & decolletage.
Wondering how all the insta-girls get their bronzer/highlighter contoured strobe-light effects without looking like an orange disco-ball? These key simple application steps will ensure you get that natural summer glow:
Sweep a small amount of bronzer with a brush just below your cheekbones, on the angle of your jawline and the hairline of your temples. You want to gently touch on the angles of your face where the sun naturally lands. The next step is IMPORTANT so don't leave it out! Blend, blend, blend using clean fingertips or a sponge. Use whatever product is leftover on the brush to add a touch of warmth to your nose, chin, and neck.
Our fave natural bronzers:
+ INIKA Organics Baked Mineral Bronzer in Sunbeam - the perfect shade for contouring and angling. Simply divine!
+ Ere Perez Rice Powder Blush & Bronzer in Brooklyn - for some summer bronze and a little cheeky blush
+ Eye Of Horus Universal Duo Palette - the ultimate in bronze, glow and shimmer, this multitasking palette has all your needs covered
Highlighters & illuminisers
These two products are literally the sun's reflection in a bottle, they are designed to accentuate all of your best angles by bringing light to them. When it comes to applying your highlighter or illuminiser, you want to make sure you touch on the high points of your face - like the top of your cheekbones, the bridge of your nose, the inside and top of the arch of your brow and the cupid's bow of your top lip. Just like bronzer, highlighter is best applied using your fingertips or a brush, and remember.... blend, blend, blend to avoid any unnatural lines.
Our top pick of natural highlighters & illuminisers are:
+ Eye Of Horus Luminous Liquid Highlighter - available in three heavenly shades that suit all skin tones, these highlighters are enriched with a natural plant form of bio-available collagen. Perfect not only for a sparkle and shimmer, but also adding that little bit of plump!
+ INIKA Organic Light Reflect Cream - infused with Aloe Vera to illuminate and soothe all at the same time.
Nothing gives you that "I've just returned from a tropical holiday" look like face tan. It is easy to apply. Dries in an instant. And leaves you with the perfect glow that wil act as a base for makeup, or simply to replace your foundation completely. When it comes to face tan, giving you our recommendation is easy; The Face Tan Aqua Mist from Three Warriors is simply the best organic face tan on the market. It smells divine with hints of Jasmine, Rose & Vanilla and it gives a beautiful buildable tan that won't leave you looking like a cheezel.
Please never forget that absolutely nothing can replace the glow of a smile made from true joy, happiness and fulfilment. All the organic tan, bronzer, highlighter & illuminiser in the world won't give you the glow, sparkle & shine like your own inner joy. So live, love, laugh & enjoy Beauties!
