Summer glow

My summer makeup routine is pretty minimal, after sunscreen I like to throw on a little bronzer and then use a nice bright lip color. These past few days I have been trying out a couple new products I received through the Style Hunters network; Physicians Formula Bronze Booster, and L'Oreal Extraordinaire Lipstick in Coral Encore.

The bronzer provides a very light coverage, which I don't mind, and it's not as sparkly as some other bronzers I've tried, so I applied it all over my face and neck as I would my normal powder. I feel like my results were a very subtle glow.

The lipstick is actually more of a gloss, and the Coral Encore shade is more pink than orange. I found the color to last a reasonable amount of time and provide substantial coverage. While it applies like a gloss, it is more opaque and wears more like a lipstick. I found it was best to apply it very gingerly. Too much and it would become streaky, smudgy, and end up on my teeth. I did not find the formula to be drying, and I like it enough that I would buy another color.

While I love the fact that it was a gorgeous sunny day at the beach for these photos, you can actually see the products better in my previous two posts!

    I am on the hunt for a nice bronzer, I am not a fan of the ones with tons of sparkles either! What am I? A vampire from Twilight!?! :)

    Happy Friday

  6. I noticed your bag before, and gosh it's beautiful! Love this pretty dress too! I actually prefer a bronzer that is more subtle and without sparkles. I use the physicians formula powder and really like it, maybe I'll check out the bronzer now!

  12. That dress is so pretty, I love the print. And I'm a fan of the Bronze Booster too--it's light enough on me that it gives me a little color but isn't overkill.

  15. I don't think I had seen this dress before, I would have remembered… it looks like that psychology test, the Roscharch - I have not worn bronzer in quite a while now.

  17. Good to know about the Loreal! I've seen it every where and I like the colors. Usually I wear a lip pencil, but a glossy type would be perfect for summer. I've never seen an outfit look so perfect in those surroundings. You look fabulous as always!

  19. I really like that maxi dress! These pictures are so pretty! I have been wanting to try that exact shade of lipstick, but for some reason the coral name was making me iffy. Good to know it is more of a pink!

  32. What a beautiful maxi dress, Lyddie! Wish I could wear a summery look here but it is cool and rainy... enjoy your time at the beach!

  33. This bronzer gave you a beautiful glow! I really struggle with finding one - they're either too sparkly and make me look like I'm a 13-year-old who doesn't know how to properly apply make-up or they're so matte that my skin looks muddy. This one gave you the perfect beachy glow, like you snapped these shots at the end of your beach day. And speaking of these shots, how gorgeous! I'm officially once again a maxi dress convert and I love the one you're wearing - you can never go wrong with black and white!

  40. Eeeep! I'm late on commenting on your photos lately! Darn this summer, being so surprisingly busy yet lazy at the same time.

    My makeup routine gets lighter in the summer, too. Probably because it all sweats off hahahaha. Your coral lipstick is so airy and cute, and that dress is a breezy dream!
