Beauties for a Dewy Skin - Dior, Elemis, & Benefit

Dior BB Cream; Elemis Flash Balm; benefit
Everyone wants their skin to look healthy and radiant, especially in Summer - well some folk are luckier than others, they do not require any help, lucky sods.  I on the other hand, need a LOT of assistance.  This help comes in the form of the four gorgeous products, pictured above. 

To achieve a gorgeous, healthy summer glow this month, add these beauties to your wish list and follow my tips below.   

Start by priming your skin with 'That Gal' by Benefit.  It is an illuminating primer which instantly brightens the skin.  

Next grab yourself Elemis Pro Radiance Illuminating Flash Balm* (this was sent to me at christmas to try - love it) - or, if you have it, Clarins Beauty Flash Balm - they are almost identical.  Squeeze a pea sized smidge onto the back of your hand.  

Choose your favourite BB Cream, lately I have been loving 'last years craze' Dior Skin Nude #002. Now it took me a while to get into this product, but lately I have been loving it.  Mix the BB Cream and Flash balm together and with a buffing brush or with your fingers, apply all over your face.   It will feel and look like a second skin.  The flash balm will help the bb cream to stay in place longer.  

Finally for that amazing dewy glow apply Benefit's 'Wattsup' on the areas you want highlighting.  Watts Up is a soft focus highlighter. It is fast becoming a 2014 favourite of mine.  hands up if you love it too!?

I love hearing tips from other bloggers about their beauty secrets so please feel free to leave your tips below and/or your links x

  6. Great post and tips, I love using BB creams in the summer as oppose to using foundation, if i need extra coverage on some spots i just dab a bit of concealer and that's it :-)

  8. Love Watts Up! How do you apply it? I usually use my fingers but have seen some people apply it with a foundation brush. I may try that trick.
    Great post!
