Dreamy spring days melding into care-free nights. Twirling with city lights that glimmer like gems from a once forgotten treasure. Skin radiant, golden, glowing. HOLD UP! This day-dream just came to a screeeeching halt! Long winter + no sunshine + turtlenecks galore is the very antithesis of golden glowy skin! Here to help...natural bronzers! Here's how you can make this springtime beauty fantasy come true any time of the year:
First up, RMS Buriti Bronzer. It's ultra-sheer and gives the illusion of sun-kissed skin. People will think you spent the year on the Isle of Capri drinking red wine! Brings such health and vibrancy to the skin. Axis beauty tip: a little goes a LONG way. With any bronzer, start slowly and build up the color. Simply warm into skin using (clean!) fingertips.
Next on the palette, Josie Maran Argan Illuminizer. If someone melted pure gold & poured it into a glass bottle, this is what it would look like. I really love using this during summer months, but FYI it's more of a highlighting bronzer than something you'd use as a contour. Axis beauty tip: It can be pretty opaque in it's luminosity, so I find it's brilliant for body. I use 1 pump Argan Illuminizer with 1 pump of any body lotion and apply down front of shins, clavicle bone, and arms. Voila! Instant light-reflecting body glow!
Lastly, our pressed powder standout, VMV Hypoallergenics Tarte-A-Tan Antioxidant Bronzing Powder. This is a great choice for sensitive skin. Packed with antioxidants like green tea, rice phytic acid, and organic coconut oil -- plus, 100% fragrance, dye & paraben free! (I apply this with brush pictured above, but it comes with it's own portable version pictured below.) Axis beauty tip: This makes a lovely eyeshadow, too! Blend at the crease where eyelid folds for a warm buttery coco contour color!
Cheers to the warmer days ahead & staying sun-safe (yet gorgeously golden!) all spring & summer long!
