Simple Summer Glow | Makeup Look

With summer at its peak, I am loving the incredible glow that my skin has! In these warmer months, I really ease up on the makeup because I like the effect the sun has on my skin. Any makeup I do wear, is incredibly natural and glowy. The following are the products I like to use everyday to create my simple summer makeup look!


Powder Foundation

I personally like to skip the liquid foundation in the summer and go for something with more of a natural finish. The Urban Decay Naked Skin Ultra Definition Powder Foundation is my go-to! It is a medium to full coverage powder that blurs the look of fine lines and creates an air brushed look. I love this powder because it wears so well throughout the day!

Neutral Eye Palette

I have recently been using the Too Faced Natural Eye Palette to create my summer eye look that you can purchase here. It has been such a staple in my summer makeup routine! This palette has the perfect amount of matte and shimmer shadows to create beautiful day time or evening looks.

Lip Gloss

I have been living in lipgloss this summer! It is such a fun way to add a pop of shine to any look. In the photo I am wearing a Marc Jacobs Enamored Hi-Shine Lip Lacquer Lipgloss in the shade Pretty Thing. This gloss is incredibly pigmented and so comfortable on the lips!


I have never loved a bronzer as much as I have this one! I am due to replace it soon because there is almost nothing left in the pan. The Too Faced Chocolate Soleil Matte Bronzer in Milk Chocolate is the perfect bronzer for getting that summer glow! This specific shade is light to medium and actually smells (and tastes) like chocolate 😂

Highlight & More Highlight

I have recently started using the Tarte Twinkle Sitck Highlighter in the shade Spotlight. This is a gorgeous cream highlight in a twist-up stick that is so easy to apply! All I do it swipe it on my cheekbones, bridge of my nose, cupid’s bow, and brown bone then blend it in with my finger or damp beauty blender. For some extra glow I love to set this cream highlight with a powder highlight. My favourite ones to top it off with are Champagne Pop by Becca and Blinded by the Light by Too Faced. You can never have too much highlight in the summer!

Brows & Lashes

I have been using my ride or die for my brows lately! I love the Anastasia Beverley Hills Brow Powder Duo in Soft Brown. I topped off this look with a pair of Iconic Lite’s from House of Lashes right after I applied my Tarte Lights, Camera, Lashes mascara. I don’t always wear lashes in the summer but I find it adds that extra pop when I want to glam it up a bit!
