That Sun Kissed Glow

Summer is my favourite season.

I love wearing a varied choice of summer clothing, seeing London in a different light and having that sun kissed glow.

BB Creams are my go to cosmetic; if I was stranded on a desert island and had to take one thing with me, then you bet this tube of miracles would be it!

However, with the terrible English weather we’ve been having, I definitely haven’t got that glow, and that is where BB creams come in. Below are my go to, most used BB cream products of the summer!

Revlon Photo ready BB Cream.

This BB cream is a perfect summer product to use. Something I have relied upon! It does exactly what it says on the tube – photo ready skin perfector. It’s perfect for a ‘no make-up’ look. This BB cream is quite dewy, even with powder to set; you still get the dewy finish. It’s perfect for those with dry to normal skin, and for a light coverage BB Cream, it sure evens out my complexion.


MAC Lightful C Tinted Cream.

This product is not so much a BB cream but a tinted moisturiser, however it has the coverage of a BB cream, and gives a lovely glow. With radiance boosting qualities, this cream has been another one of my favourite skin products. I tend to wear this on my not so confident skin days and I look fresh faced with a radiant glow in no time. This tinted cream is also perfect for touching up make-up throughout the day, without making it look cakey.


NARS Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturiser.

Yes, another tinted moisturiser. Well, what can I say. Out of these three products, NARS is by far my favourite. It’s almost like a foundation, but sheer coverage (as you would expect from a tinted moisturiser). In fact this miracle cream has made me partly give up foundation. (I say partly because when it comes to getting ready on a Saturday night, wearing a good foundation is the best part!)

My skin feels and looks smooth, I have a radiant glow and I needn’t touch it up half way through the day!


What’s your favourite BB cream/tinted moisturiser? I would love to know!
