We’ve all seen pictures of our favorite celebrities wearing picture perfect glowy makeup everywhere they go. Contrary to popular belief, this look is not hard to achieve. Following some simple rules and tips, this look can become an everyday look for many of us as it doesn’t require a lot of time and effort.
Beautiful, right? It’s almost like a no makeup, makeup look. You will be surprised at how extremely easy it is to achieve.
Let’s get Started:
I can’t emphasize enough how extremely important it is to keep your skin moisturized during the summer. In order to achieve that glowy look, your skin must be hydrated first. Apart from hydrated, your skin should also be protected. Protected from harmful UV rays coming from the sun. In order to protect your skin from the sun, you should also apply sunscreen. To kill two birds with one stone I like to use the Aveeno Positively Radiant Sheer Daily Moisturizer with SPF 30.
2. Cream Based Products.
Other than moisture, another key tip for glowy makeup has to be cream based products. Not only is this formula easier to blend for a more natural look, but it is lightweight and you won’t feel like your filling your pores up with product. A little goes a long way, and remember that, it is easy to get carried away and build up the coverage in these products to a medium instead of light coverage look. My favorite cream based products are from Tarte and Glossier, they both have beautiful selections that can work for everyone. These brands carry anything from cream foundation, to blush, and even bronzer.
3. Highlight and Shadow.
I think it is extremely important to contour and highlight for a summer makeup look. You want to look sunkissed and awake, so what better way to do that than with the queen herself, Kim Kardashian West. I live for the KKW Beauty contour and highlight sticks, they are a game changer when it comes to natural makeup looks.
A nice feathered brow is all in right now! Anastasia Beverly Hills is literally the home to anything brow related. My favorite combo from their line definitely has to be the brow wiz + the brow gel. GAME CHANGER!
If you know me, you know I swear by this product. Thrive Causemetics has the World’s greatest mascara called the Liquid Lash Extensions mascara, giving you length and volume while remaining natural with your own lashes. Any natural makeup look should include nice voluminous lashes.
6. Setting Spray.
Finally, to lock your masterpiece in place the All Nighter Setting Spray by Urban Decay will keep your look intact during these hot summer days without mattifying down your skin. All so that you can glow the haters aways!
