Summer is sadly over, but that doesn't mean the end of radiant skin too! Today I'm sharing my favourite products for keeping your summer glow going just that bit longer...
Of course we have to start with skincare! As a treatment (which you can use 2-3 times a week), I really love the Dr Roebuck's Daintree AHA Brightening Mask* | £25 | full review. It's definitely more on the gentle side compared to other chemical exfoliation masks I've used, which I'm a fan of - little and often is a pretty good way to go with AHAs. This contains caviar lime, kakadu plum and multi-fruit AHAs to gently remove dead skin cells and reveal smoother, clearer, brighter skin (just be sure to apply sunscreen afterwards if you're using this in the morning, though I recommend incorporating it into your evening routine).
In terms of everyday glow-boosting skincare, I have a few products I've been loving. The first is the Pixi Rose Glow Mist* | £16 | full review. This is a dual-phase mist formulated with flower oils that gives my skin a gorgeous dewy glow. Next I'll use the Glow Recipe Pineapple-C Brightening Serum* | £46 | full review. This is a Vitamin C serum that just gives the most gorgeous 'glass skin' look. It leaves my complexion hydrated and healthy looking. To round it off, I've been using the Glow Recipe Pink Watermelon Juice Moisturiser* | £36 | full review. I don't usually find gel moisturisers that amazing for my dehydrated skin, however it just drinks this one up! This product gives me such lovely, dewy skin, making it a go-to of mine when I want my skin to glow as much as possible.
- BASE -As far as base products go; I have two that I'm really loving at the moment. The Charlotte Tilbury Wonderglow* | £39 | is amazing mixed into your foundation or worn underneath it. It's essentially a natural, pearly cream that boosts the glow of whatever you use it with. I often mix it with more matte foundations to just dial them down whilst still benefiting from great coverage that lasts. I personally think I prefer this to her cult Hollywood Flawless Filter... *gasp*... For base makeup, I've fallen for the Fenty Beauty Pro Filt'r Hydrating Foundation* | £27 | full review. I was really gutted when Estee Lauder discontinued their Cushion Stick foundation because it was my perfect medium-coverage glow-y everyday base product but this new Fenty launch has filled that hole in my collection! It has a build-able formula so you can definitely make it look more full-coverage, however one pump of this stuff is spot-on for me. I wear it in the day, I wear it in the evening, it's long-lasting, hydrating without the shine and comes in an amazing shade selection. This combination is just dreamy!
- COLOUR -Finally, let's talk colour products. I'm not usually one for a shimmery bronzer but the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Bronzer in Radiant Bronze Light | £45 | is divine! This brand just always get it right when it comes to cheek products; this bronzer is subtly warming and has a gorgeous sheeny glow to it without obvious shimmer or glitter. The formula is impossible to go overboard with and just looks so natural on the skin, as though the glow is coming from within as opposed to sitting on top of the surface. I just wish this came in more shades - there are only four and this is the second-darkest. It's a shame because I want more people to be able to enjoy this fantastic formula.
The glow continues with blusher and, of course, highlighter. My highlighter of choice recently has been the Jouer Powder Highlighter in Skinny Dip | £19. It has this gorgeous smooth formula that gives in intense, dewy glow on the skin. It's not powdery, chunky or glittery; it just looks gorgeous! The colour itself is champagne with a slightly peachy undertone. I then finish off my cheek look using the Milani Baked Blush in Bellissimo Bronze* | £10 | full review. I talk about this blusher range and this particular shade quite a lot on my blog, so I'll keep this brief! It has the most gorgeous subtle shimmery formula which is impossible to over-apply and very quick and easy to pop on. It's long-wearing and definitely adds a glow to the skin with its bronzed tone and gold sheen.
Finally, I'm actually going to talk about an eyeshadow. I love using the Nudestix Magnetic Eye Colour in Copper Foil (apologies this is mislabelled below!) | £20 | full review | for a dewy eye look. It has a pearly metallic finish that lasts without creasing on me. The colour is a warm, coppery gold that you can pop on and blend out with your fingers for a glowing wash of colour.
