Sunkissed Skin with Nordstrom

I am not seeing much of the outside world at the moment with a newborn and with quarantine life still in effect. Regardless, I love adding subtle warmth to my face to give me that kissed-by-the-sun glow. I’m partnering with Nordstrom to show you how I achieve this with some of my go-to products and I’m also testing out the New Charlotte Tilbury Summer of Love Airbrush Flawless Bronzer.

This bronzer is on the pricey side at $55 but the product has a beautiful finish and adds the right amount of color for a healthy glow. Not to mention the compact is beautiful and large, so you won’t hit the pan as quickly as you might with some other brands. Application tip: Start with a smaller, more packed brush to contour. I like to start at my forehead, then down the cheekbone, then down the jawline – imagine drawing a 3 on the perimeter of your face. That’s where you want the most warmth or color. I love using the Laura Mercier Cheek Color Blush brush. Then to blend everything out I take a larger face brush and just lightly dust more color on to make sure there are no harsh lines. To finish off my look I have some other key products listed below.

Charlotte Tilbury Magic Light Cream with SPF: I love this moisturizer because it has SPF 20 (yes to extra protection!) plus it can be used as a daily moisturizer for intense hydration and offers triple-threat protection against air pollution, blue light and UVA/UVB.

Bobbi Brown Cream Pot Rouge in Powder Pink: I have been obsessed with cream blushes lately for that dewy, flushed look and this formula is perfect.

Laura Mercier Transluscent Glow Powder: This is a go-to of mine because it’s a setting powder + highlighter in one. It’s so beautifully milled and provides just the right amount of glow to anywhere on your face or body.

Caudalie Beauty Elixir: To round out the glow and seal it all in this setting spray is one of my all time faves. It refreshes and locks in your look at the same time.

Laura Mercier Caviar Stick in Violet: I love these easy to use sticks. You can apply directly from the stick and blend with your fingers. So many fun colors to play with too like this pop of purple.

Laura Mercier Lip gloss in Bare Blush: The perfect barely there nude gloss to finish off any sun-kissed summer look. Shop all the products mentioned below or find them by following me on the app.
