How to Get a Bronzed Summer Glow

Glow on, girl

Summer is all about achieving that gorgeous Cali-inspired glow that starts with healthy skin. I like to switch up my routine for the season with products that protect, hydrate and brighten for a fresh, naturally dewy complexion. It’s all about superstar ingredients like vitamin C.

Start fresh

Turn up the brightness with vitamin C-infused skin care.

Step 1

Vitamin C Radiance Serum This serum is a game-changer for dull skin. It has 2 types of hyaluronic acid, plant-derived squalane and diglucosyl gallic acid to help increase firmness and instantly illuminate my skin without drying it out. 

Step 2

Everyday Radiance +C Moisturizer I follow up my serum with the Everyday Radiance +C Moisturizer. Not only does it give my skin so much radiance, but it provides up to 24 hours of hydration that my dry skin craves. Pro tip: For a double dose of powerhouse ingredients, pair vitamin C with niacinamide. Niacinamide is also known to be brightening and helps improve the overall appearance of skin tone and redness.

Step 3

Depuff +C Eye Cream This product is great for faking that well-rested look even when I’m not. Daisy flower extract is known to help reduce puffiness and dark circles, while vitamin C and 2 types of hyaluronic acid bring hydration. I like to apply it with a jade roller to really work the product into my skin, de-puff the eye area and give myself a mini spa moment.

Step 4

Honestly Bright Eyes Tinted Eye Cream This is another multitasker that I love. It softens and hydrates with 2 types of hyaluronic acid and squalane while providing instant coverage and brightness. I use the shade Sandstone and my girl, Lizzy, uses Terracotta. This formula is so sheer and blendable that you don’t even need an exact color match.

Step 5

CCC Tinted Moisturizer with SPF 30 Another product with that vitamin C antioxidant boost, because why not? I love that this tinted moisturizer blurs imperfections with a seamless, dewy finish that never feels too heavy for summer. It’s super blendable, plus it has SPF and blue light defense to keep your skin protected whether you’re inside or outdoors.

Time for a glow up

Create that Cali bronze.

Step 6

Luminizing Glow Powder & Magic Beauty Balm Stick I use the Luminizing Glow Powder in Midnight Reflection on my brow bone, down the center of my nose and on my cupid’s bow to create dimension. Then I like to go in with the Magic Beauty Balm Stick for an illuminating, dewy finish. Because it’s such a versatile multitasker, I swipe the Balm Stick on my lips, eyes, cheekbones (or wherever) for a gorgeous highlight. It has a nourishing blend of sunflower seed and coconut oils that moisturize the skin without any greasy feels. Pro tip: For a more defined look, apply the Luminizing Glow Powder in Dusk Reflection into the hollows of cheeks and up around the hairline.

Step 7

Vibeliner I don’t like to wear a bunch of powders on my eyes when it’s hot and humid because they’ll just melt away. Vibeliner is the perfect alternative for summer. Use Divine, a gold shade, along the inner corner of the eyes to open them up, and Harmony along the lash line to make them look fuller while giving you a sultry bronze.

Step 8

Gloss-C Lip Gloss I prefer glossy lips over matte in the summer since it feels more natural and playful. Gloss-C is a hydrating lip treatment and gloss all in one, infused with vitamin C, hyaluronic acid and jojoba oil for fuller, plumper-looking lips.
