Welcome to autumn! Technically, we’re still getting intermittent warm temperatures but that doesn’t always translate to sunshine meaning the summer glow obtained over June and July is fading fast but there is a way for you to keep your summer glow going throughout rainy October and beyond. I’ve put together my favourite summer glow makeup products that’ll give you the all-important sun-kissed look all year round.
When it comes to summer glow makeup, there are a lot to choose from, but here’re some tried and tested, affordable bronzers and highlighters that have got your back. They will ensure you have that sun-kissed glow with the simple swipe of a brush.
Glow X MUA Light Lustre Liquid Highlights
I’m a big fan of these beauties by MUA Cosmetics. They launched early June as part of the Glow X MUA collection.
The Glow X MUA Light Lustre Liquid Highlights comes in three shades (Marvel, Spectacle & Wonder) and contain high concentrates of pearl. It glides on skin effortlessly and is buildable with makeup sponges for a beautiful and lasting glow.
Sleek Makeup Highlighting Elixir
This Sleek MakeUP Highlighting Elixir is super hydrating thanks to the formula made with nourishing jojoba seed oil and vitamin E. For an instant glow, it also contains ultra-refined pearls for a customisable, buildable, dewy-not-powdery glow.
Collection Bronze Glow
This Bronze Glow gives a beautiful and natural sun-kissed glow thanks to its micro-fine pigments and multi-tonal shades that blend effortlessly with skin tones. It comes in two sun-kissed shades to suit both dark and fair complexions for a year-round glow. Simply buff the bronzer sparingly across your face, gradually building depth and colour until you achieve the desired effect.
Rimmel Natural Bronzing Powder
This Rimmel Bronzing Powder promises a sun-kissed glow all year round. It’s waterproof with a velvet soft texture that leaves you with a naturally even, bronzed look. Totally matte, it gives the perfect sunless tan. The formula applies smoothly and lasts for up to 10 hours.
No.7 Maple Glow Palette
I tried this newly launched palette recently from No.7 and I’m in love. It’s a complete palette with four shimmering and matte eye shadow colours, two highlighters, a matte bronzer and a blusher.
Apart from No.7 Maple Glow Palette, all bronzers are within the £10 range. They are very versatile and easy to apply. They also have staying power when applied, and more importantly, they help skin glow and keep the summer glow going all year round.
Keep an eye out for the second part of this posts which unveils affordable skincare products that’ll prolong your summer tan and glow.
