There are three things that I love and always associate with summer and sunny weather vacations: the color gold, glossy lips, and sun-kissed skin.
I wear gold jewelry year-round, but I especially love how it looks in the summer sun and paired with lighter colored clothing. Lately, I've been obsessing over hand chains like this one from Kendra Scott and shiny gold nail color (would also be great for the holidays!). For glossy lips, my fave of the moment is the Yves Saint Laurent Volupté Tint-in-Oil. Super hydrating and glossy, but let's be real, I'd buy it anyway for its beautiful packaging!
As far as sun-kissed, getting a healthy glow while staying protected from damaging UV rays had always been more tricky for me. Recently, I received a sample of Tone & Tan by Karin Herzog (c/o) and Miracle Skin Transformer BODY SPF 20 (c/o). The Tone & Tan is a self-tanner and toning cream, and the MST BODY is a tinted beauty balm cream with SPF. I love using the 2 together for a gradual tan and sunny glow while having sun protection from the SPF. The Tone & Tan is easy to apply, looks natural and didn't streak even when I was in a rush and quickly(sloppily) smoothed it on. The MST is hydrating and dewy, and is great even without a tan when you want to give your skin an immediate, radiant glow with its tinted formula. Love it.
