Who doesn’t want a gorgeous natural glowy look for summer? With products that won’t feel heavy on your skin and won’t melt off your face, this is my summer day natural glowy makeup routine!
A few things have changed since I did my Spring Makeup Routine post! But my staples have stayed the same: IT Cosmetics CC+ Cream, Benefit Gimme Brow, and L’Oreal Colour Riche Lipstick in Glossy Fawn.
The IT Cosmetics CC+ Cream is actually the first makeup base product I have ever repurchased. With a bonus SPF 50+, a dewy glowy finish, and enough coverage to cover redness and any little spots it is my perfect base. Another bonus happens to be that in it comes in my skin colour #pale. I love this for summer because its lighter than a foundation but doesn’t melt off my face.
I have also added a few new products to my routine! Firstly, is my long-time wishlist member: the Charlotte Tilbury Beauty Light Wand. I like to apply it with my finger or beauty blender for more of a natural subtle highlight.
Another new product is my Essence Luminous Matt Bronzer. Amelia Says did a drugstore haul post and I spotted this bronzer. She said it was similar to the Charlotte Tilbury Bronze and Glow formula but for a fraction of the cost and I was sold. I’ve never used bronzer before (gasp!), so I didn’t want to invest a ton of money into it and so far I love this! It blends nicely and I think the colour looks natural enough that it doesn’t look like a bronzer. It just gives me a healthy glow and adds a little definition back into my face, without feeling like an extra layer.
I’ve also finally gotten my hands on a couple of the Glossier Cloud Paints. I decided to pick up the colours Dusk and Storm. I’m still learning to use them (thankfully I actually like the borderline sunburnt look). But the formula is really nice and looks really natural on your skin! It blends flawlessly with my base and adds some colour back into my face.
For my lashes – I always curl them and add Maybelline Full & Soft mascara. If you’ve been reading for a while you’ll know I was on the hunt for a new mascara because they discontinued this in Canada, however, what I recently learned is that they still have it in the US. So the hunt is over, I’ll be stocking up on this! It is my all-time favourite mascara, I love how full my lashes look while still giving me a natural no makeup mascara look.
I like to finish my look by brushing through my brows with Benefit Gimmie Brow and adding a swipe of my favourite lipstick; L’Oreals Glossy Fawn. My last step, which is recent purchase (and not pictured), is adding a pressed powder in the parts of my face that tend to get oily. The powder I use is the Charlotte Tilbury Flawless Finish Powder. It’s not cakey at all and you only need a little. It just swipes over the skin and perfects everything and tones down the shine.
So that’s it, a simple, no-makeup makeup look that is glowy and perfect for summer!
