The secret to a year-round summer glow

The secret to a year-round summer glow

There are so many great reasons to love summer. The longer days, glorious weather and fun vibes make it the favourite time of year for many people. But for us beauty lovers, there’s another reason we fall in love with summer – that unmistakable sunkissed summer glow.

But who says you can’t hold onto your summer glow all year long? As autumn rolls around, we’re here to tell you that there’s no need to kiss your beautiful tan goodby.
We asked our beautiful friends at Raww Cosmetics for their top skincare and makeup tips for autumn, and we’re about to teach you the secret of how to get glowing skin year-round, with the help of the right skincare and makeup.

Secret #1: Reach for hydrating products

To keep your skin looking dewy and fresh long after the end of summer, you’re going to need some hydrating skincare products by your side. Keeping your skin hydrated will make sure the outer layer of your skin (the one with that gorgeous summer glow) looks fresh and healthy for longer.

As the weather turns colder and drier, try these tips for a moisture boost:

  • Apply a hydrating face cream daily to keep skin supple and plump. To make sure you have all of your bases covered, make sure you apply both a hydrating day cream and a nourishing night cream. Raww’s Super Hydrate-Me Day Cream and Night Cream are the perfect combination to help you keep your skin hydrated.
  • Twice a week, treat your skin to a super hydrating face mask to top up your skin’s moisture. Raww’s Hydrating Gel Mask is the perfect treat for your skin for when you feel it getting dry and dull.

Secret #2: Bronzer and blush are your best friends

You’re keeping your skin in perfect shape with hydrating skincare, but it’s now time to think about makeup looks that will help accentuate your tan. When it comes to recreating that summer glow, bronzer and blush are your two best friends. They’ll add a subtle dose of colour, giving your skin a fresh-looking flush that will look like you’ve stepped straight off the beach.

Here’s how to apply bronzer and blush for a year-round sunkissed look:

  • A little touch of bronzer is the best way to add colour and depth to your makeup. For a natural bronzed look, apply it on your temples, down your neck and lightly brush it along your cheekbones with a fluffy makeup brush. It’s a super simple way to get a golden glow year-round!
  • Give a rosy, fresh look to your cheeks with a touch of pink blush. Apply blush on the apples of your cheeks, on the bridge of your nose and on your forehead, and build it up as much as you need to. This will give you a sun-kissed, rosy look.

To create the perfect tanned summer glow, try Raww’s Macadamia Crush Bronzer and Pomegranate Crush Blush. Practice where to put bronzer, highlighter and blush to help you fake a sun-kissed complexion in minutes.

Secret #3: Add a dash of illuminator

Want to know the ultimate secret weapon for the best glowing makeup? Illuminator! Also known as highlighter, illuminator is our little secret for giving your skin that natural, healthy glow. It adds a subtle dose of dew without glitter or shine, and will have your skin lit in no time.

To illuminate your skin, apply highlighter to the top of your cheekbones, brow bones, cupid’s bow and down the bridge of the nose. Our go-to dewy highlighter is Raww’s super-creamy Acai Berry Glow Illuminator, infused with tons of natural ingredients like Coconut Oil, Pomegranate Oil, Macadamia Oil, Chia Seed, and Acai Berry. It sounds so good we almost want to eat it!

Get sun-kissed all year long!

Glowing summer skin looks healthy and youthful, but it can be hard to hold onto it all year long. With the help of some natural glow products, you can easily recreate summer makeup looks that will have everyone asking what your secret is.
