Glowy Makeup Routine

July 10, 2017

Hey lovely. Thanks for stopping by. Every product is linked at the bottom!! 

Summer always reminds me of having super glowy bronzed skin. I am obsessed with this look during summer and I like that you can go full glam or keep it simple, which is what I tend to lean towards. I think glowy skin starts from within so its always a plus to drink a lot of water to keep your skin hydrated. I also like to use the it cosmetics confidence in a cream moisturizer and the First Aid Beauty ultra repair cream in the intense hydration. This has kept my skin so moisturized. I don’t apply this in my t-zone since I tend to be oily in those areas, but I do apply it on the outer perimeters of my face. For the t-zone, I like to apply the belief true cream aqua bomb, which is more like a gel consistency so it doesn’t break me out.

Now that I am moisturized and have a good base. I like to apply the Too Faced RX hangover primer and tap that in to my skin. Then I give it a good 5 minutes to let it soak in to my skin.

I then add the Becca backlight priming filter. I LOVE THIS STUFF. This is my fav product of all time and I have been using it like crazy as you can tell from the pictures. So I just do one pump of this product and let it soak in to my skin as well.

After that, I use my it cosmetics foundation brush and apply my Too Faced Born this way foundation all over. I like to start with one pump and try to thin that out so I am not using as much product and it makes the makeup look more natural. (By all means, you can build this up if you want more coverage for a night out.. Just add another pump and build up to your desired coverage level.)

After the foundation drys down a bit, I like to go in with my Maybelline instant age rewind concealer under my eyes, my t-zone, and my smile lines. I like to blend this with my brush as well, but sometimes I will use my sponge if I want to get it done quick. I’ve learned if you use the brush and tap it in to your skin you get more coverage where as the sponge soaks up some of the concealer and sheers it out.

After, I like to use any type of setting powder that I have. Today I used the RCMA setting powder, but I also like the Kat von D setting powder, or the Coty airspun setting powder. Another good one is the Laura Mercier which is a fan favorite. Its really just whichever I grab out of my drawer first. So I will set this with a powder brush. I don’t bake any part of the concealer because this look is supposed to be glowy and natural and I don’t want it to be so matte.

Next, I put on my Urban Decay blush in “fetish” on my cheekbones and then I use the pacifica bronzer. I have the travel size and it has lasted me so long.. partly because I switch up bronzer every day. I put this right under my blush kind of in the hollows of my cheeks, but it doesn’t have to be super accurate. I just like to make sure it is blended in with my blush.

Then, I take a fluffy blending brush and add the bronzer to my eyelids just to give some color and dimension to make me look more awake. After I add my becca shimmering skin perfector in the shade Opal on the top of my cheekbones, my temples, the brow bone, tip of the nose, and the cupids bow. If you think you put too much on, you can use a damp beauty sponge and sheer it out so it isn’t as intense. I just lightly do it and build the highlight to the desired amount I want.

Next, I spray my Mac Fix + setting spray all over and let that dry. Then I will add my mascara (I used the Benefit roller lash today) and my bare minerals gloss. I put a light amount just to give some sheen to my lips.

That is all you have to do! Easy summer glowy makeup routine for days you just want a healthy glow!

In the picture I did add some of the Balm Meet Matt(e) Hughes in the shade committed.

Thanks for reading everyone!!
