One of the things I love about summer time is that summer glow! I love the super sun-kissed tan skin from the summer sun because it makes you look healthy and fresh. Being pregnant and all, I don’t get to tan as much as I used too just because my skin is even more sensitive to sun exposure, and if I do go to the pool I wear SPF 50 and won’t stay by the pool for over an hour. Haha!
When the weather is scorching 90 degrees out, I stay away from wearing too much makeup just because I don’t want my makeup melting off my face (though there are tons of waterproof makeup in the market now). I love the lighter, fresh faced, glowy look for the summer, and that’s what today’s post is all about. This is a perfect everyday look, and you could achieve this look in 15 minutes or less. I’m gonna share with you how I achieve my dewy, glowy skin makeup look and the products I used! Let’s get to it!
First things first, I keep my skin hydrated before I start doing my makeup. After applying my moisturizer, I apply a couple drops of face oil on the high points of my face for that extra glow.
For my base, instead of using a face primer I’m loving using the BareMineral Complexion Rescue. It’s like a tinted moisturizer and does not have any coverage, but it does even out the skin. If I have a liquid highlight, I would add it to my tinted moisturizer for more glow.
When I need more coverage, I use a concealer on my problem areas, but today I decided to put a bit of foundation just to achieve a more flawless finish. I just use a small amount and dot it all over the problem areas which is usually on my chin, around the nose and my cheeks.
Maybelline Fit Me Matte and Poreless Foundation (shade 230)
Now that we have the base done, I love to highlight my under eyes with a hydrating concealer because of it’s dewy finished. You know my go to, and I’ve shown it multiple times on here.
Apply concealer in a triangle shape under your eyes and concentrate most of the product on the high points of the cheeks, the bridge of your nose, forehead and chin. These are the areas where the sun naturally hits!
Blend away with a damp sponge
Set the areas you apply concealer with powder, but not the rest of the face because we want to keep our face as dewy as possible.
Next up, is bronzing the face. I never skip this part because bronzer adds color back to your face. I usually go a little heavy handed with the bronzer when I’m tan though…. just cuz! Don’t forget to apply it down to your neck as well!
So this part is not necessary, but I like adding more glow to the skin by using another bronzing product that has shimmer in it. I like the Milani Baked Bronzer in Soleil and use that as a bronzer topper, but today I’m using the bronzy golden shade in the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Palette for that shimmery bronzy glow.
This final step of the look is to add more glow! Yes, it seems like it’s too much but the highlight I’m using is really subtle and you can keep building the intensity up.
Apply highlight to high points of your cheeks and above the eyebrows
Apply some setting spray and you’re good to go!
Hope you enjoy this super easy dewy makeup look! I love how this turned out and you could definitely switch up the products to your liking!
