Are you proud of your sun-kissed skin and wishing you could accentuate it to create an infinitely golden brown and glowy look? Then I have just the right products to shimmer up that sumptuous tan! For years I have been using products to give my tanned summer look a natural-looking glow. Sure, I have been blessed with a natural brown skin, that needs little extra help, but nonetheless a girl must always try to enhance her best assets, right? And even in winter you can use these products for a night out, just to bronze your complexion and lift up your otherwise pale look. I don’t use any coloured tanning creams or spray, so all products are neutral, but they have micro light reflectors that give a natural looking glow.
1. Guerlain Terracotta Pearly Sun Powder – A facial and body bronzing powder with a golden cast. I use it as a blusher in winter. It gives you a nice subtle glow and magnifies your tanned look. The texture is soft and velvety but should be applied with a soft hand to keep it natural. It is however easily blended. It comes in 3 hues, Africa Rythm (shown), Orient Sun and Indian Bronze.
2. Laura Mercier Secret Finish – A secret last step that helps set makeup and gives your face a youthful glow. The oil-free cream instantly gives a moist and natural looking radiance to the skin. You only have to apply a a small amount by padding it on with your finger tips on the areas you would like to radiate like e.g. your cheekbones.
3. Clarins After Sun Shimmer Oil – This is a nourishing, non-greasy body oil bursting with fine shimmer particles to illuminate and enhance the skin. It gives your body a golden shimmer and healthy glow while softening and nourishing the skin after a long day on the beach. I like to use it on sensuous spots like my shoulders, breast and legs. Key ingredients include UVA-UVB filters, olive and Tahitian vanilla. The combination of ingredients helps moisturize your skin leaving it to feel smooth and soft, while promoting a longer-lasting tan. It may also be used to keep your hair shiny, yet do that in moderation or your hair will be greasy.

Subtle shimmer makes it accessible and perfect for a day lotion when going sight seeing or out to lunch. Yes it is even appropriate for work I would say. After using this, you won’t need any perfume!
