How to Get That "I Just Got Back From Vacation" Glow

People always tell me that I have a great tan or that I always look tanned.  They ask me where I went on vacation…….Florida, but 3 months ago!

Okay, so these are my favorite products that give me that ” I just got back from vacation” glow 🙂

Benefit Cosmetis Hoola Matte Bronzer

This is probably my favorite bronzer right now.  I use it for contouring, eyeshadow, blush…heck i use it for everything.  It is a matte finish so it is multi-use.  As you can see it is the most used.

Hourglass Ambiant Lighting Bronzer 

I love the luminosity of the light bronzer – it goes on light and you can build on it.

Luminous Bronze Light- a medium tan shade fused with Luminous Light, a champagne pearl powder, for a softer, candlelit warmth.

Anastasia Beverley Hills Glow Kit 

All of Anastasia’s palettes are popular choices – I really don’t think you can go wrong.  I love all the shades and mix and match them.

A glow kit with four metallic powder highlighters for intense luminosity.
Bring instant luminosity to the complexion with these four metallic powder highlighters. Just layer the highly blendable shades together or wear them separately on the eyes and body for a radiant look.

The Balm

I received this in my Ipsy bag and am loving it.

Nothing is more satisfying than being indulged, and this dusty-rose blush will ensure that you have all the boys attending to you. Its subtle shimmer catches the eye while plum undertones provide a glow that is oh-so-natural, whether you are pool-side, beach-side or bed-side.


I received this as a gift with purchase.  I love the softness of this blush.  Leaves me glowing.

A silky, lightweight powder blush containing the perfect combination of mineral and plant extracts. Adds colour and luminosity to cheeks for an instant, healthy-looking glow. The stunning mosaic palette houses different shades and finishes, enabling you to illuminate your complexion and enhance its natural radiance and beauty. –


This is a nice alternative to the Anastasia Palette – I received this is a Sephora Favorites box.

A creamy, luminizing powder highlighter to light up the features you love with a high-shine finish.

Achieve a refined glow in any light with this bestselling highlighter. Shimmering Skin Perfector™ Pressed is enriched with ultrafine luminescent pearls that absorb, reflect, and refract light to amplify your natural radiance. Like a compact full of crushed gemstones, the multi-toned pigment pearls adjust to your skin’s natural undertones. They’re perfect for intense highlighting or layering to create a truly unique glow. Unlike traditional methods, the one-of-a-kind formula blends pigments with liquids, providing an unparalleled, creamy application with balanced color coverage. The result is a high-shine, elegant shimmer finish that doesn’t look glittery.
Are you getting your glow on?

Pretending like I just got back from vacation look 🙂

I wish people would ask me if I had just gotten back from vacation all the time - my tans always last a week and then start fading immediately. And my tans are usually pretty sad too.

Great collection of bronzers! I haven't tried any of those - I'm going to have to look into them! :)
