The secret of summer glow up is in ‘no-makeup’ makeup products. You probably know those light foundations you keep for summer weather, along with a shiny highlighter. Now it is time to put them back in action!
However, there are still a few tricks for achieving perfect summer makeup. Let’s continue.
Hydration Is The Key
Don’t ever forget to put a good, water-based moisturizer before even thinking about your makeup. In the hot weather, your skin will act like a sponge and will leave your face looking sloppy and not smooth at all.
That is why you need to hydrate it first. Don’t forget to put a serum or eye cream to allow the concealer to blend in perfectly.
Find Light Summer Foundation
In the summertime, switch from heavy, matte foundations to light and shimmery ones.
Such lighter foundations will hide all the imperfections, while you will remain to look glowy and fresh. Apply your foundation with a beauty blender or sponge.
Trick: add a bit of liquid luminizer to your foundation for super summer glow up!
Brighten Your Eyes (aka Hiding Blue Bags)
After applying your eye cream, your concealer will blend in much better than usual. Hiding your imperfections will help you look fresh and awake. That is why this step is essential.
There are no particular products you should use here. Just apply the regular highlighter, luminizer or concealer.
Add a Bit of Radiance
Applying a bronzer is officially the first of summer glow up look. You can opt for blendable bronzer. That way you can contour it better. Apply the bronzer to the cheeks with a brush and then to the outer corner of your eye with your fingertips.
If you were wondering what bronzer to choose – here are some tips. Matte bronzer will make your face look warm. On the other hand, the shiny bronzer will make your face look sun-kissed and glowy. It is for you to choose!
Pink Cheeks Vibes
Add a bit of color to your cheeks. We know this might be strange, but according to the makeup gurus, this will add fresh and youthful vibe to your face and makeup.
Trick: Add some of your peachy or pink blush as an eyeshadow!
It’s Time for a Highlighter
When choosing a highlighter, make sure not to pick too glittery one. In the hot summer weather, you can quickly look too shiny – from your makeup and the heat.
Apply a cream highlighter to the cheekbones, nose bridge, forehead, and the lower eyelid. With highlighter, you will look sun-kissed and glowy, even though you are in your office.
Apply a Mascara
Don’t let the rest of your outfit empty. You can always define your eyelashes or add a bit of eyeshadow. Our suggestion is to go with gold or beige tones that will match with the rest of your glowy summer look.
Pick Neutral Lipstick
Shiny or matte – it is for you to choose. In the summer everything is allowed! Go with nude shades, or light pink, peachy colors. If you want to combine this daily glow up makeup for night events, then add red or magenta lipstick.
Lock Makeup with Powder
If you have oily skin, then this step is not avoidable for you. You should set up your makeup with light powder. Concentrate on your T-zone. Watch out – don’t overdo it with a powder. A little shine is allowed.
For the End – Spritz!
As a final touch, you can spray off your face with a mist or thermal water. This will keep your makeup locked in one place, while it will still give you a beautiful summer glow up.
