It’s very nearly almost summer, and the time of year when we want nothing more than a bit of tan. The problem is, with the exception of a few beautiful days so far, there hasn’t been much sunshine to be had. But that doesn’t mean that a sunkissed glow is out of our reach – just reach for the bronzer.
A good bronzer applied well – choose a colour not too much darker than your natural skin tone and don’t cake it on – can give you the kind of summer glow that a relaxing beach holiday bestows, but without the holiday or the ageing effects of the sun. And the touch of shimmer in these three great buys will help give your complexion a naturally radiant finish.
Dior Diorskin Nude Shimmer
Dior’s nude shimmer is great for those who want a subtle effect. Dust it lightly on your cheekbones, nose and forehead for a fresh, light and health summer glow.
