I typically don’t wear a lot of makeup and I definitely don’t wear it daily, which I think is key to allow your skin to breathe. When I do I keep it light. I like the natural glow look for summer, of course (don’t we all). Here are the products I love to obtain that summer girl glow!
First, I always spray my face with St. Tropez. I stopped tanning my face a couple years ago when I noticed my first sun spot and you’ll notice I love wearing hats in the summer to keep the sun off my face. Side note, pregnant women are prone to develop more sunspots due to when steep rises in estrogen levels stimulates excess melanin production and exposure to sunlight can make it worse.
For the spots and bags under my eyes I can’t control I use this skin tint by Hourglass. I always keep something like this handy for days after sleepless nights. I like the Hourglass brush because it creates an even distribution.
I then apply this Chanel powder. I was never a powder or foundation person and I definitely don’t believe in this powder just because it’s logo but it ROCKS. I feel like my skin looks completely even when I wear this. I’m careful of the shade so it doesn’t become too cakey looking.
Invest in a shimmer! I’ll wear this all year around for a natural cheekbone glow. I apply down the front of my nose as well. As you can tell I’m starting to love the Hourglass line as Nars just discontinued my most recent favorite shimmer stick:( The foam brush you see here is bomb too. Makes it easy to apply when you’re out on the town for reapplication.
I go a very inexpensive route for my mascara. You can find this at any drug store. Be mindful of what shade you want-dark black, black, brown, etc.
Always have a gloss handy to go over your matte stick. I love Nars for gloss and Revlon always has bright summer colors to keep it sexy and fun! What are your go to’s?
