It’s summer and we’re spending more time outside. And when the temp heats up, it’s time to show a little more skin. Read: pretty sundresses, miniskirts, short shorts, bikinis, and more. To help us achieve the best glow of our lives this summer, we asked celebrity makeup artist Andrea Samuels to share her top five favorite products.
We love beauty must-haves that can pull double duty and the majority of Samuels’ picks offer SPF protection in addition to a captivating glow. Let’s jump right into her top five body glow products you need this Summer.
“For the summer, I highly recommend using SPF mixed with a pigment or highlight tone to give you the ultimate glow on your skin. Here are a few products that I absolutely love and I highly recommend,” says Samuels.
SuperGoop Body Oil SPF 50
I use this body oil for photoshoots because it doesn’t stain clothing, it gives the skin a natural glow, moisturizes, AND protects your skin by giving an amazing amount of SPF coverage at level 50. This has a little bit of everything you need for summertime!
Tom Ford Soleil Blanc
If you’re looking for luxury, effortless glow and an amazing light fragrance, this is it! I’ve used the Tom Ford Soleil Blanc for a few red carpet clients to give a really dewy, light-weight glow on the skin. Tom Ford Soleil Blanc lasts for hours and I really love that it doesn’t make the skin look too glittery or shimmery; It just gives the right amount of glow. Make sure not to use too much because it can stain clothing, but other than that, it is pretty perfect!
Fenty Beauty Body Sauce
This is a perfect formula for anyone who wants a little coverage on their skin without it looking too cake-y or heavy. Fenty Beauty has exactly what you need if you want your skin to look flawless and glowing. Once this dries down after a few minutes, this Fenty formula is sweat AND transfer proof!! This one is on the pricey side, but it’s a winner in my book.
Kopari Sun Shield SPF 50
This Kopari Sun Shield smells SO tropical! If you want a vacation in a bottle, I highly recommend using this one. Not only does this give the body an amazing glow, but it also protects you from the sun with an SPF of 50. This formula absorbs into skin really quickly and does not leave a sticky residue. 10/10.
Melanie Mills Face and Body Gleam
“This product is a Hollywood secret: if you watch “Dancing With The Stars” or “So You Think You Can Dance?” this product was used on almost every single dancer to ensure their legs looked bronzed and glowy from top to bottom. If you have an active lifestyle and you want your legs to have a beautiful glow, this is the product to use! Very little goes a long way, just one bottle can last you for at least 2 years!”
