BASE WITH SPF
We all know how important SPF is, especially in the summer when the days are longer and the sun is stronger. I always always recommend applying sunscreen on your face and neck before you apply any makeup, so a base with SPF is just an added bonus. If you want glowy, summer skin go for something hydrating and lightweight. Tinted moisturizers with SPF, serum tints and BB creams are all great choices. Find my current faves linked below!
The secret to dewy skin is using cream based products. A cream bronzer or stick bronzer is the perfect way to add lightweight definition to your cheekbones while keeping that dewy look. For extra glowy skin, go for a cream bronzer with a shimmery finish. I’ve heard great things about this clean Illuminating Bronzer from Tower 28 Beauty!
I love a good blendable, cream blush because they’re low maintenance and easy to apply with your finger tips! Cream blushes are also great for keeping the skin’s natural oils, aka that natural glow we all love. There are a ton of great ones on the market right now!
If you haven’t tried a liquid highlighter yet, get ready to thank me. A liquid highlight is the perfect way to get an effortless summer glow. The best part? You don’t even need a brush. Simply apply a bit of product to the high points of your cheeks, on the brow bone and down the bridge of your nose and dab it with your fingers. So easy and so pretty!
One of the hardest things when it comes to wanting dewy, glowy summer skin is worrying about your makeup moving or melting off right away. To keep your makeup in place and keep your glow at its best, go for a hydrating, glowy setting spray. One of my long time faves is the Caudalie Beauty Elixir, but I’ve also linked some newer favorites below!
