Here at Billboard Style, we’re forever on the hunt for quality products to enhance and promote a healthy, natural glow. So coming to our aid is YouTuber and influencer Desi Perkins, who has earned over 2.5 million subscribers on her YouTube channel, is assumed to be Jennifer Lopez‘s official Doppelganger (they even did a meet and greet together at one point) and has done collaborations with Patrick Ta and Quay Australia.
Looking back at this unbelievable trip. All this time you guys have been telling me I resemble JLo and I have always been so flattered! I for sure see it in this picture!!! What an amazing experience it was getting to talk to her about her line! Thanks @Kohls for sponsoring my meet + greet with @JLo! #JLoVegas
Below, check out her top five favorite products for getting a summer glow year-round:
“I like mixing it into my favorite foundation to create more of a ‘tinted moisturizer feel’ with a radiant finish,” says Perkins. The cream works as a moisturizer with reflective particles for hydrating and illuminating wear.
A favorite of many beauty gurus, this matte bronzer is flattering on most skin tones for both bronzing and contouring; Benefit has also released Hoola Lite, which can be used on fairer skin. “This is a universal bronzer with the perfect undertone,” says Perkins. “It’ll give you the right amount of bronze and definition.”
“This highlighter gives a beautiful glow that looks great in the sunlight,” says Perkins. This luxurious limited-edition illuminator is a mix between a pressed and poured formula, making for easy application and a smooth texture for use on both the face and body.
Try out this alternative to more heavy-weight concealers for a lighter wear on hotter days, or take a page out of Perkins’ book and use this as a spot concealer on the days you skip foundation. “I love this concealer because it gives just enough coverage,” says Perkins. “It looks like your skin, just better.”
Perkins recommends this cult-favorite mascara in its waterproof formula so there’s “no smudging in the heat, even on the lower lashes!” It works as an all-around lash thickener and lengthener and can easily be used as a staple in your makeup routine year-round.
