At some point throughout the summer, we begin to dread wearing makeup due to the heat. If you’re someone who wants that perfect summer minimal makeup glow, you’ve come to the right spot.

Try out these effortless techniques for a clean, refreshing and natural makeup look: 

The last thing you want this summer is your makeup melting into your sangria. To achieve a natural look, you’ve got to get your hands on the right products. Some of those products include:

Waterproof Mascara: 

If you haven’t got your lash extensions done this summer, then we would recommend you to check out the pros of extensions for the warmer months. If that doesn’t float your boat, make waterproof mascara your best friend this season.

The YSL Everlong Waterproof Mascara is long-lasting and clump-free a girl’s dream come true. Other mascara products that are known to be waterproof and smudge free are: The Dior Blackout Mascara, Covergirl Eyebrightening Mascara, Maybelline Great Lash Waterproof Mascara, and also the Neutrogena Healthy Volume Waterproof Mascara.

Make Your Foundation Look Like Your Skin:

If you wear a full-face of foundation during a hot day, then expect your makeup to dribble down your chin. Skip your normal foundation routine and substitute it for a light-weight silicone formula that will give you coverage while allowing your skin to look natural.

The L’oreal Infallible Foundation is made from a rich silicone formula and gives a matte finish. Other products you could use include: NARS All Day Luminous Weightless Powder Foundation SPF 24, M.A.C Pro Longwear Nourishing Waterproof Foundation and also the Clinique Stay Matte Oil-Free Makeup.

“The Infallible Pro-Matte Foundation is ideal for normal to oily skin, especially during this hot weather. It is also recommended if you have acne-prone skin.” – Makeup Reviews 

Moisturize With Fresh Skincare: 

To keep a natural healthy glow, you must invest time to take care of your skin. It’s important to moisturize daily, especially in summer. To protect your skin from moisture loss and prevent dull skin from appearing, use the Fresh Skincare’s Lotus Youth Preserve Face Cream, a lightweight cream that enhances your skins natural radiance.

Summer Glow:

This summer is all about strategically applying highlighter on your skin for a glowing and shimmery look. The purpose of a highlighter is to define your cheekbones.

“When the skin is already sun-kissed, highlighter brightens up the highest parts of the face.” – Daniel Martin, Makeup Artist 

The MILK Makeup Highlighter is an essential you will carry with you everywhere. To achieve a perfect summer glow, use this product that has been made popular by Kendall Jenner and Gigi Hadid, and apply on these 3 popular areas:

These products will not only give you a natural look, but your summer makeup routine will be quicker and more efficient. Check out our Pinterest for more summer beauty hacks.
