I'm not a lounge in the sun and bake person. I hate the feeling of suncream and being overly warm. I always say that I'd prefer to be extremely cold than extremely warm. You can add layers but there gets to a point where taking them off is frowned upon in public. For that reason I'm a big fan of faking the summer glow. Gradual tan and bronzer have been my friends for many years. Recently, I've fallen in love with the ELF Aqua Beauty Blush & Bronzer.
I haven't played much with the blush shade but I adore the bronzer. With a duo fibre brush I like sweeping this across my hairline, cheek bones and jaw to fake that summer glow. It blends like a dream and lasts a full 7.5 hour day at work. My mum actually commented on how lovely it looked...nearly a full ten hours after I first applied it. If you want to look like you just came home from a week in Santorini you need this in your life. So far there are three shades of the Aqua Blush & Bronzer. The one I have is Bronzed Peach which I think is the middle of the two. I'm praying that more, and darker shades eventually are realised in this formula. It's beautiful. You need it.
