5 Products that Help You Glow

Raise your hand if you want to look like a golden goddess 24/7 (guilty). Even though it's impossible to look killer all the time, luckily some products allow you to achieve that outer glow and radiance we all long for. Here are some of my favorite skincare and makeup products that help me achieve that effortless summer look.


1. Fenty Beauty Gloss Bomb
I've never truly been a gloss girl. For the longest time, I loved liquid lipsticks and wasn't really fond of glosses. However, I've been binge watching Gossip Girl and all of the female characters always seem to have healthy, glossy looking lips. This inspired me to purchase Fenty Beauty's Universal lip luminizer and let me tell you, it's a game changer. I wear this lip gloss day and night. Whenever I'm at school and want to look less dull, I just slap this gloss on and instantly look ten times better. This lip gloss has a rosy tint with some gold sparkles mixed into it that make your lips look magical. It's really comfortable on the lips and can either be worn alone (on those no makeup days) or on top of another lip color. If you're interested in purchasing a new lip gloss to enhance your pout, I would highly recommend this one.


2. Becca Champagne Pop Highlighter

Highlighters are how I imagine unicorn tears: glittery and mesmerizing. Becca cosmetics is infamous for their beautiful highlighters and the shade champagne pop is a cult favorite for good reason. This velvety, pigmented powder is perfect for adding a pop of shimmer to your cheek bones and is worth the splurge. The luxurious formula is so finely milled that it does have a tendency to crack, which means dropping it is your worst nightmare. One of my favorite tricks is to apply this powder with a beauty sponge. This technique makes the powder melt into the skin and gives you that effortless, glowing from within look (even though we both know it's your 40$ highlighter). If you want a radiant and blinding glow during the summer, look no further.


3. Thayers Witch Hazel Toner

Witch hazel toner is essential in any skincare routine and has changed the appearance of my skin for the better. This product is very soothing and provides moisture on the skin. It also gently removes any impurities or dead skin left after cleansing. Since witch hazel is a natural remedy, it's perfect for sensitive skin and leaves your skin looking radiant. I use to have a lot of texture and little pimples on my forehead, but once I started using this toner, my skin instantly started clearing up. This product is perfect for freshening up your skin during the hotter months.


4. Honey

You might be thinking: why would I ever put this sticky substance all over my face? Well, let me tell you why. Honey contains antibacterial properties that help prevent breakouts. It also leaves you with smooth, hydrated skin and helps fade scaring and pigmentation. Mixing honey with some lemon juice is an easy DIY mask that anyone can make at home. Honey is not just delicious on toast or in tea, but it can also benefit your skin in many ways and I highly recommend incorporating it in your skincare routine.

5. Water

Lastly, you can't look and feel your best this summer if you don't drink any agua. This isn't really a makeup or skincare product, but beauty does start from within and drinking lots of water will provide you with visible health benefits inside and out. Infusing water with fruits such as lemon, cucumber and berries can help you drink more consistently and also adds a hint of flavor. Carrying a water bottle to school or work will remind you to drink more often as well!
