7 Beauty Products for Glowing Skin

In honor of Ulta’s 21 Days of Beauty going on right now, I thought it would be fun to share some of my beauty favorites – all of these products are perfect for achieving dewy, bronze skin – some products I’ve been using for years, others are new on my radar. Without further ado…
This is a product I’ve been using for YEARS! I love this lotion because it gives you a subtle glow and you an use it every day to develop a gradual tan (it’s buildable!). I use this product in between spray tans (especially while I’m traveling) to keep my tan looking good. I like the “medium to tan” color because it’s a little stronger, and I also prefer this one to the “firming” one because I think it smells better!
This is a new product that I’m absolutely loving (you’d think I’d have enough highlighter by now but NOPE!). This highlighting palette features three highlight finishes ranging from a subtle glow to super sparkle – I just really love how bronze-y the colors are, like you’ve just gotten back from a tropical vacation.
You can’t have dewey skin without a moisturized face, amiright? This is the moisturizer I’ve been using for the past year (maybe longer?) and I don’t think I’ll ever switch. It’s not greasy at all and doesn’t contain any oil, so I can put it on in the morning and wear it all day without shine. My favorite time to apply it is at night after cleansing my face – I put a lot on so it will soak in overnight! I blogged about it in this post.
Similar to the Jergens body lotion, I have been using the Jergen’s face product for years. It’s just like the body lotion but specifically designed to help build a tan on your face! It seems like my tan always fades from my face first (probably from washing/exfoliating so much), so this product is essential in keeping my facial skin tan!
I just picked up this highlighter too – I was initially attracted to the packaging but the color inside absolutely sold me. It’s GOLD! A beautiful, gorgeous golden bronze color. I like to apply it with my fingers instead of a brush!
I’ve been using this product ever since it was first released and I’ve featured it in multiple blog posts – this foundation is my go-to every single day. It’s pretty full-coverage but it gives your face a dewy glow that I just absolutely love. I feel like it makes my skin look younger and really fresh. Plus, the price is hard to beat for how good it is!
I have been hooked on Smashbox primers for years – they’re really lightweight and make your skin look almost poreless. The “radiance” primer is brand new and OMG – if you like radiant, glowing skin then you need this primer!! It gives you a subtle glow – if you have good skin you may not even need foundation after applying this.

  21. hi beautiful! i love your blog and recommendations always! just a quick edit for you, you said that you have been using the l'oreal pro glow for years and it was only released last year (last late spring/summer) just so you are aware ๐Ÿ™‚ xoxo

    • haha you're right! I guess it just feels like years because I've never stuck with a foundation for so long! They sent it to me right when they released it and I've been hooked ever since ๐Ÿ™‚ Thanks for the clarification!

  22. How do you apply your tanner? I use it and especially around my ankles and on my feet I can't seem to get it right and it just looks blotchy and orange.

  23. Dumb question, but when do you use your face tanner? Morning or night? After washing but before products, or after skincare products?

    • I don't use the face tanner yet. Because of my work schedule I shower at night and put the tanner on when I get out and dried. Then skincare products.
