5 Beauty Hacks and Tips to Fake That Summer Holiday Glow

Summer Beauty Hacks 
Summer is all about the glow factor for me, bronzed skin, glowy cheeks and golden eyes are my uniform look for this time of year. So if you haven't seen much sun this Summer or you're yet to take that Summer getaway, then have no fear I've teamed up with Seventeen and ten other bloggers to share my top five beauty hacks and tips to fake that Summer holiday glow, no vacation required!
Firstly let's start with the all-important base. A BB Cream is a great way to get that flawless coverage with minimal effort. I first discovered the Seventeen BB Balm a few years back and it's one of my favourite multi-taskers as not only does it cover a multitude of sins, it also contains an SPF25 which is rare for a foundation and you guys know how much I consider an SPF a vital part of my routine! Apply this with a damp sponge for the ultimate dewy base.
If you're all about that 'extra' glow factor then why not mix a little highlighter into your foundation, this is a trick I've used for years and it looks especially good on a night out! I use the Skin WOW 3 Way Highlighter as it works wonders with any foundation to give you the ultimate 'extra' base.
The quickest way to add some colour to the face is with a bronzer. Bronzer can hide a multitude of sins and during the week I actually opt for a little concealer and bronzer as it adds a more sunkissed, natural glow to the skin. The Define & Conquer Palette is great one for warming up the contours of your face where the sun would normally touch your skin, but if you want something a little dewier, then the Instant Glow Cream Bronzer is one of my Summer favourites for that effortless holiday glow, it's also a wonderful dupe for the Chanel Bronze Universal.
The quickest way to appear well rested is by using a highlighting or light/yellow based concealer. These type of concealers are best applied with a damp sponge under the eye, to prevent pulling around this delicate area. The Skin WOW Concealer is great for not only brightening under the eyes, but it's also perfect to pop in your bag for on the go touch ups if your skin needs that little pick me up throughout the day. The Stay Time Concealer is another great option for covering up any redness you may have from too much time spent in the sun!
Highlighters are one of those holiday essentials I cannot live without as they can be used in so many ways. Dust this over the décollaté to complement a tan, wash it over the eyes for an easy effortless shimmery eye or of course swipe this across the cheeks for maximum impact. I've actually been using a small fluffy eyeshadow brush to apply my highlighter lately and let me tell you it's a game changer!

The Instant Glow Palette is one of those superb all-rounder palettes for holidays as you have four shades in one to create endless looks with. I used the two middle colours on my eyes and the top shade as my highlighter.
Another great travel option that I can't live without is the Cheek Stamp Blushers as their compact and don't require a brush to apply either! All you do is use the spring-loaded sponge to apply the colour to the cheeks and viola you have that instant pop of radiance and colour! 
You'll be amazed what a few coats of mascara can do to open up the eyes and make you appear more awake than you probably are! Use an eyelash curler first for maximum impact and then go in with a lash lengthening mascara like the Long Lash Mascara or Falsifeye HD Mascara which give you the ultimate length, thickness and longevity.
So there you have it my five foolproof tips I use to get that instant holiday glow! I've teamed up with 10 other blogger friends to bring you this series of Seventeen beauty hacks, so be sure to check out the gorgeous Poppy Mayy next for some more beauty hacks, tips and inspiration...
