That Summer Glow

One thing is for sure in the heat and humidity – I do not like to wear a lot of heavy makeup {to be honest, I never do}. I do, however, like to look dewy, fresh and sun-kissed look {without exposing my face to the sun}. These three easy products help me achieve that healthy, bronzed, glowing look that is so perfect for summer.

If you’ve been following NYPSJ for a while, you know I am such a believer in great skincare. Your skin has to be healthy and glowy to start with. We can’t make something out of nothing, ladies! For my skincare routine check out this post. The foundation of achieving this glow starts with my easy everyday makeup routine which can be found here. Then, I’ll add these three beauty products to bronze and glow!

To Get The Bronzed Glow


Laura Mercier Bronzer – 04 is what I wear as blush. I like the golden tone in summer rather than a pink or rose color. Apply just below cheekbones.


I use this brush and apply Laura Mercier’s illuminator in color Devotion to cheekbones, over arches of my eyebrows and cupids bow. It’s subtle but definitely adds the right amount of shimmer.

Rose Gold Skin Mist

The Farsali Rose Gold Skin Mist is a new product for me and I already LOVE it! I use it as a setting spray. I spritz my face to give it a glow and set my make-up {perfect after using a mineral-based powder}. The 24k gold flakes absorb right into the skin leaving it extra glowy, but not glittery {this mama isn’t going to the club}. You can also apply this mist to your makeup sponge before blending in your foundation, or spray it on your eye shadow brush before applying your shadow to make the color extra pigmented. So cool!! Also cruelty-free and vegan.

So, go on, get glowing!
