Simple Summer Glow Makeup: Get the Effortless Look!

Summer is the perfect time to embrace a fresh and glowing makeup look. Whether you're heading to the beach or a backyard BBQ, this simple, glowy makeup routine will have you looking radiant in no time. Follow these easy steps to achieve that sun-kissed glow all season long! (There are affiliate links in this article!)

1. Start with a Clean Canvas

Before applying any makeup, make sure your skin is clean and moisturized. Use a lightweight moisturizer and SPF to protect your skin from the sun's harmful rays.

2. Illuminate with a Dewy Primer

Add a luminous touch to your skin by applying a dewy primer. This will help create a radiant base for the rest of your makeup, in addition to keeping it in place. I absolutely love Charlotte Tilbury's Wonderglow.

3. Achieve a Natural Glow with Tinted Moisturizer

Skip the heavy foundation and opt for a tinted moisturizer instead. Choose a formula that provides sheer coverage and a dewy finish for that effortless summer glow. No idea where to start? Check out my faves here. Remember that you can always add more coverage with concealer!

4. Enhance Your Features with Cream Products

Cream blushes and highlighters are perfect for creating a natural-looking flush and glow. Apply a cream blush to the apples of your cheeks and a highlighter to the high points of your face for a fresh-faced look. If you're not into a lot of color on your face, skip the blush and use highlighter and bronzer instead!

5. Define Your Eyes with Bronzy Shadows

Add warmth to your eyes by using bronzy eyeshadows. Sweep a shimmery bronze shade across your lids and blend a matte brown into the crease for a simple yet stunning eye look. I love a one-step eye product, so a lot of the time I personally reach for Victoria Beckham's cream shadow stick in "Caramel."

6. Finish with a Pop of Lip Gloss

Complete your summer glow makeup look with a glossy lip. Choose a tinted lip gloss or oil in a peachy or coral shade to add a touch of color and shine to your lips.
