The spring weather has finally arrived, and with that, we can finally transition over to our beloved spring wardrobes. There is nothing better than pulling out those strappy sandals, distressed denim shorts, off-the-shoulder tops, and feminine sun dresses. But what’s the best accessory for all of those barely-there clothing items? GLOWING SKIN! These monthly beauty buys were hand picked in hopes that they would give the most beautiful glowing skin. Keep reading below to see if they did just that!
Benefit Cosmetics Cheekathon Blush & Bronzer Palette: This is one of the most exciting makeup items that I have ever purchased. I have always lusted over Benefit’s Hoola Bronzer, but I couldn’t allow myself to buy such a high priced bronzer when I had a perfectly full Too Faced bronzer to use at home. I know I buy multiples of other products, but a bronzer is a bronzer…I really only need one color. When I heard that this palette was being launched, all of that changed. I couldn’t get over how great of a deal it was! Not only do you get a full sized version of Benefit’s Hoola bronzer, but you also get four other full sized products and a brush! This was a deal that I could not pass up and neither should you. You can wear these universally flattering powders separately or mix them together for a natural flush that’s all your own. The light-weight, long-lasting powders are extremely buildable and they blend like a dream. This palette has all of the major products you need to get ready and go in one easy step. I start by using the Hoola bronzer to contour and warm up my face, apply a mix of Dandelion and Coralista for a natural flush of color, and then dust Rockateur over top for a little glow. I could go on an on about how much I love this new palette, but I will cut myself off here. Check out the photo below to see how beautiful and natural all of the products look on – this is a MUST BUY!
Laura Geller Baked Gelato Swirl Illuminator – Gilded Honey: I can’t tell you how long I have been trying to get my hands on this product. For months it has been sold out EVERYWHERE! After searching high and low in stores and online, I finally found this beauty at the Birchbox store in Soho. The second I got it, I rushed home just so that I could put it on. All I can say is that it was worth the wait. This might be the most beautiful highlighter that I have ever owned…and I am quite the highlighter connoisseur. The formula is truly luxurious – it applies like a powder but feels like a cream. It also gives the most natural glow. The beauty of this formula is that it is buildable, but no matter how much you put on, somehow you can never go overboard. When I wake up and do my makeup, I literally douse myself in this stuff. I am beginning to think I may never need to use another highlighter again!
Kopari Coconut Body Glow: I have to give a big thanks to my favorite Youtuber, Desi Perkins, for introducing me to this product. If you have seen any of her Instagram photos, your eyes are instantly drawn to how beautiful and glowy her skin is. She finally shared her glowing skin beauty secret, and this was it! All you have to do is slather this beachy coconut body glow on to your skin and you are instantly radiant from head to toe. Not only that, but it makes you smell like pure coconut paradise. I personally like to put this product on my arms, collarbone, and legs. When you step out in to the sun, the natural pearlescent minerals in the coconut oil will make you shimmer in all the right places. I mean it when I say that this body glow will probably be my best beauty accessory this summer. I am itching to try out the coconut melt next!
