You GLOW Girl!

Monday, July 25, 2016


The best part of Summer besides salty beach waves is getting that gorgeous glow!  I'm a total advocate for achieving a sun kissed look safely (SPF always peeps), so i thought I'd round up some of my favorite products for getting your skin looking healthy and glowing! The list is quite long so bare with me!



One of the most important things you can do for your skin besides using a good sunscreen is nourish it.  Pixi's H2O Skindrink is UHHHHMAZING!  This intense moisture gel delivers a burst of hydration to skin.  The formula is cooling and feels incredible against my skin.  It's lightweight and has the most delicious and very light scent. It's everything!




If you love Pixi as much as i do, you won't want to live life without their Tinted Brilliance Balm! These lippies are so soft and glide on beautifully.  They're the most comfortable wear.  While i typically love a strong lip... during the warmer months, i love to opt for tinted balms.  These are always a favorite of mine.  Oh and my mom is obsessed with them too!  She rocks them to the very core... understandably!  After all, nothing compliments a summer glow better than a good tinted balm!



I'm obsessed with facial mists.  I keep them on my night stand, vanity, makeup pouch, beach bag... you get the point!  No 7 Hydrating Mineral Water Mist is so refreshing! This is wonderful after you moisturize, to set your makeup or simply refresh on a hot or stressful day!  The non-greasy, hypo-allergenic, mineral water spritz instantly hydrates and leaves skin feeling fresh!  Believe me when i tell you it's a Summer time BFF... besides, it's super budget friendly!




YOUNGBLOOD's Mineral Illuminating Tint Body is the perfect Summer situation for your entire body!  This creamy, luminous tinted lotion leaves a healthy sheen on your arms, legs and anywhere else you want to glow!  It leaves the most beautiful, subtle glow while providing major hydration!  It's lightly scented of Shea Butter and Coconut Oils... delish! You'll want to top off your glow with YOUNGLOOD's Lunar Dust in Twilight.  A light dusting of this light reflecting beauty adds shimmering highlights to your face, legs and shoulders!  Honestly, highlighters are all the rage right now and believe me when i tell you, a quick swipe of this beauty to your shoulders will add the perfect sun-kissed dimension to your skin!  All you need is a pretty cold shoulder top and you're all set!



I love a bit of shimmer against my skin during the Summer months.  Borghese Spendore Brightening Makeup has easily become a favorite of mine.  You can wear this alone or mix it with your favorite foundation.  Just a small pump of this beauty gives your skin the most radiant glow!  I'm seriously in love!





There is nothing better than a good multi-tasking product!  The Mineral Fusion 3-in-1 Color Stick has been a fixture in my makeup pouch for a few weeks now because in the summer, i like to keep things simple!  A few swipes of this beauty on my lips, cheeks and lids and I'm good to go!




When it comes to glowing skin, Sonia Kashuk knows a thing or two!  I mean, take a look at SK's Chic Luminosity Bronzer/Highlighter Duo!  The packaging is absolutely stunning but the color payoff is the real star here!  A few years back i purchased the Bronzer/Blush Duo and wore it 'til it hit pan (which rarely happens around these parts).  This really speaks to the quality of this incredibly affordable product!  When my friends at SK sent over this beauty, i knew we'd be instant BFF's.... and i was right!  Pssst.... the super cute makeup pouch shown in the first pic is also Sonia Kashuk.  She seriously has the best travel and makeup pouches!  Check them out here.




Speaking of SK products, the Lip & Cheek Tint in Enchanted 01 is another one of my summer jams! It's such an easy product to instantly add a flush of color to your lips and cheeks!  The formula is silky and blends beautifully.  This is definitely an SK must!





I've been trying and loving some Golden Door products.  The Bronzer is so innovative and fun to use! Simply press the button to release the bronzer powder and swipe wherever you want to glow!  I like applying it to my cheeks and shoulders whenever i wear cold shoulder tops!  It just adds a subtle glow and i personally love it!  BTW did you know that 100% of Gold Door's profits go to select charities across the U.S. dedicated to transforming the lives of children? This is a brand worth supporting! Go check them out!




Speaking of Golden Door, I'm obsessing over the Tinted Lip Treatments with SPF 15!  They add the most beautiful flush of color and feel incredibly comfortable and delicious on my lips.  You can't go without a couple of these in your makeup pouch this summer... trust me!

OK so i think I've given you quite a few options to help you achieve that Summer Glow girlfriend! So lets chat, which product are you most excited to try?

Thank you so much for reading! Xo, Carla - FMM
