This summer, the natural look has taken the fashion world by storm. Even freckles have returned on the fashion scene! People want to look like they have no makeup on and want to enhance their natural features. Whether it’s a night out or taking cute pictures on the beach, summer is all about looking and feeling like your best self. So, here’s some tips and products to help achieve that perfect summer natural glow look that everyone, including models, are trying to master.
Make sure you have a good primer. I know sometimes we get lazy and don’t want to prime our face, but making sure you have a primer will not only ensure that your pores are covered, but it also protects your pores by keeping your face hydrated and healthy underneath the products that you place on top of it.
Pick a light foundation. A really great foundation that keeps everything light especially on those hot days is a must. Choosing a lighter foundation makes sure that you don’t have to worry about your makeup melting. I use L’Oreal Paris True Match Lumi Cushion Foundation. Since it’s a true match product, it not only matches my skin perfectly, but it provides a seemingly natural glow.
Keep your eyebrows as close to natural as you can by doing light brush strokes with the perfect eyebrow pencil. I do a slightly bushy look by just filling my brows with natural brush strokes, and it leads to flawless results every time.
Use waterproof mascara. Use the right brush for your lashes. Having the right brush can help achieve a flirty eye look without having to add fake lashes.
The highlight is essential for your summer natural glow look. Add highlight under the browbone, on the tip of your nose, Cupid’s bow, the center of your chin, and your cheekbones. This will enhance your features and really give you the glow you are looking for. Lighten up your eyes by putting the highlight on your brush and then placing it on the inside corner of your eyes. This will brighten up your eyes and add to your highlighting that you just did.
Don’t forget to set your face with finishing powder and setting spray. I put finishing powder under my eyes and then place it over the areas that I just highlighted. To complete the look, use a setting spray. This method not only finishes the look but also ensures that your look stays on all day.
That’s all you need! Use these steps to achieve a seemingly effortless look. You can also add more or use less as you please but take the time to play around with the look until you feel like it is just right.
