When it comes to my everyday beauty look for the summer I like to go for a shimmery summer glow. Working on a tan isn't really an option as I spend 90% of weekdays indoors, so I like to fake a little summer glow.

Products Used:

  1. Jergens BB Body 
  2. Real Technique Expert Face Brush 
  3.  Too Faced Tinted Beauty Balm in Nude Glow
  4. Vincent Longo Blush in Desert Rose 
  5.  Benefit High Beam Highlighter
  6. Too Faced Shadow Primer in Candelight
  7. MAC Hip 'N Happy
  8. Too Faced Melted in Melted Marshmallow

STEP 1. Before applying any face products, use a face lotion or body lotion. This will help smooth your skin and help any of our foundations from looking caked on. I like to use Jergens BB Body Cream as it helps illuminate my skin.

STEP 2. To help get a summer glow apply a tinted BB cream with your face brush, Too Faced has ones that comes in different shades that will help you achieve your beach blow.

STEP 3. Apply a light shimmer to your eye lids. I like use eye primers that have a bit of color to them so I don't have to apply eyeshadow on and it will hold my cat.

STEP 4. Use a eyelash curler to give your lashes some length. I don't typically wear mascara as it always feels to heavy, so you can opt to add a touch of mascara to your look.

(OPTIONAL) I never leave home without my cat-eye. I use Kat Von D's Tattoo Eyeliner to achieve my cat eye.

STEP 5. Take a soft pink blush and apply on your cheeks. This will give your cheeks a soft rosey color.

STEP 6. Using Benefit's High Beam Highlighter apply three small dots on your cheek bones. Using your fingers blend into your check bone. If you desire more of a glow, add two more small dots and blend in.

STEP 7. Set with a finishing spray. My go to favorite is PurMinerals Miracle Mist.

STEP 8. When doing a light face I like to keep my lipstick light as well, either a nude lip or a pale lipstick. Apply a lipliner and then a lipstick or stain over it. This will help keep the color lasting longer.

What's your summer make-up?

  1. Gorgeous! High Beam is a great highlighter option. Still need to try one of those Too Faced melted lip stains.
