Faking that Summer Bronze

With the distinct lack of a summer this year, I am bringing you all my favourite products to fake that summer glow. Whether you've been away or not, these products will bring you the perfect head to toe post holiday bronzed, glowing from within look.

My two favourite fake tans at the moment, are the Crazy Angel Dark Mousse Tan- just apply it, leave it on overnight and you are left with the perfect bronze the next day. This also lasts a few days and fades evenly. Alternatively if you however have a faded natural tan, or just want to give your fake tan some extra colour and glow my go to is the Soap and Glory Sunkissed Tint Body Lotion, a wash off tan this only lasts until your next shower but gives you an instant glow.
 In terms of makeup you want all the highlighted, bronzyness you can get your hands on. The Chanel Soleil de Tan Chanel is amazing for warming up the skin tone, as well as adding definition to your decolletage, along with the Anastasia Beverly Hills Cream Contour for defining your bone structure. By using cream products rather than powder also helps to let your natural glow show through, and leaves the whole bronze look to look more natural.

Sticking with cream products, I always mix the Seventeen Skin Wow Highlighter in with my foundation, as well as using it on top to highlight specific points of my face. You can also get this in a more bronze shade which will of course give the illusion of the tan which English summer has failed to provide. You all know my love and obsession with the Topshop Glow Pot, oh wow, this packs a real punch. Put it everywhere you want glow, and it wont fail you. Lastly, a new obsession or rediscovery is the Benefit Watts Up Highlight, an alternative to the Tophsop Glow Pot and best applied with a brush, this adds all the glow.
Despite saying avoid powders, there are a few that I can't help but read for regularly. MAC Soft and Gentle, an old time classic but still a firm favourite of mine. Charlotte Tilbury Bar of Gold, a much loved and treasure highlighter giving you all the golden vibes and works amazingly paired with Soft and Gentle. Lastly, this little pot of highlighting dust from Topshop, perfect when you literally want to bathe yourself head to toe with a gorgeous glow, I often use this on my chest and collarbones with a large fluffy brush, to add that natural glow which catches the light, but it can also be used on your face of course, even with a wet brush for a very intense highlight.

So there you have it, a round up of all the products I am relying on to give the illusion of a beautiful glowy tan.
