I am dreaming of summer and there is nothing better to get me in the mood than this years Estée Lauder Bronze Goddess Summer Glow makeup collection. All of the products have one central theme: bronzing. With products for the eyes, lips and cheeks, skin with be glowing with a touch of sun that will last the season and beyond. I'm obsessed!
Bronze Goddess Summer Glow is perfect for your summer makeup bag and essential for travel! The collection includes two new palettes (one for eyes and one for cheeks), a new innovative multi-tasking lip and cheek color stick, a liquid illuminator and of course, the brands cult favorite bronzers.
The highlight of the collection for me is the stunning Summer Glow Multi-Palette. This is a trio face palette that contains a soft shimmering bronzer, illuminator and blush for a gorgeous, natural summer glow. I love the geometric inspired design of the powder itself — so gorgeous — but the powders hold a secret. The powders were created with a special Prisma Technology which is a "tribrid" of liquid, powder and gel which feels incredible on the skin. It applies with a super smooth finish (like a creamy gel in powder form) with true color. The shades will really enhance a tan.
To get that beautiful tan, there are a few easy ways to create a faux tan with self-tanner (obviously), by using a bronzer like one of the Bronze Goddess Powder Bronzers in this collection or my favorite way with a gel bronzer like the Gelee Bronzer. This gel bronzer is very easy to use and wear; it feels like nothing on the skin yet it makes skin look naturally sun kissed. I apply a thin veil of the gel bronzer over my tinted moisturizer to give skin an all-over bronzed look. It is very natural looking and gives my skin the perfect looking faux glow. It lasts longer and looks more natural than a powder bronzer ever does.
To further accent a tan, I always go with gold and that's why I think the Lip and Cheek Summer Glow in Sunburst is a must have. This 3-in-1 color stick has a soft gold lip and cheek color on one end and sparkly gold gloss on the other. It's not only a great accent shade, the stick is perfectly portable and amazing for travel. It comes in other shades (more below) but gold (Sunburst) is my pick.
