How to Get the Perfect Summer Glow

Want the perfect summer glow for the  summer but don't know how to get it? Well Beauties I'm going to help you and give you some tips on how to get your Sexy Summer Glow.

The secret to being bronze and beautiful depends on the amount of Shimmer you use. You want your glow to be more SUBTLE than deep and savage. Picking the right undertones also will help give you that beautiful glow. Pink and Gold undertones give you a lighter, fresher and more natural look.


-Prep face with long wear foundations (MAC Prolong wear, Revlon ColorStay) Reduce shine with blotting papers (Clean&Clear)

-If you want more of a sunny glow, then use a powder bronzer that is 2 shades deeper than your foundation color. (Stila bronzing powders have a wide range of shades making it easier for you to find your perfect shade)

-DO NOT use bronzing powders to SET your makeup!!!!!!! You want to apply it over your usual powder/foundation.

-Make Sure your skin is DRY and NOT moist because the darker powder will grab and look blotchy: not cute.

-Use a very Fuffy face brush this will keep the finish Seamless and Natural.

-Keep it sheer and don't forget your Neck! Apply it all over then add extra to the apples of the cheeks, bridge of nose and chin.

**Bronzer is like the icing on the cake, do your usual makeup routine by applying your foundation and powder and then DUST your bronzer over your face (that has already been set with  your powder, remember don't set your foundation with your Bronzer!!)**

*also you can do this with a tinted moisturizer, but make sure you let it DRY first before doing your bronzer application**
