How gorgeous is the weather this week?! It’s got me so excited for summer and it means I can finally switch up my makeup routine to a lighter and more glowy finish. In summer, for me, a dewy base is an absolute MUST. I love that natural bronzed glow and together these products work perfectly to create it.
Primer is a must for me especially when the weather is warm as there is more of a chance that the heat could affect the lasting power of your base and I love the L’Oréal Lumi Magique Primer. Not only does it feel super light, it also provides a beautiful sheen to your skin, oh and it’s super cheap too. I apply this after moisturising and before my foundation to really illuminate my face. It’s also very hydrating making it a good choice for those of us with dry skin.
Come summer, MAC Face and Body is my go-to foundation. The coverage is sheer with that ‘this is my skin but better’ kind of finish but it evens out your skin and makes you look fresh and healthy and provides that dewy glow. This is the only foundation I’ve found that it’s best applying it with my fingers rather than a beauty blender or brush as the foundation warms in my hands and makes it easier to blend in.
A recent purchase of mine was the Iconic London Illuminator drops. I got them in the shade original and honestly they are THE BEST THING EVER. I’m not even kidding or exaggerating in the slightest…If you want that extra glowy look then you neeeed these. I apply the tiniest droplets along the tops of my cheekbones, centre of my forehead, down the bridge of my nose and on my cupids bow and gently blend them into my skin. A little definitely goes a long way with these drops! I then apply a powder highlighter on top of these areas as well, no glow is too much right?! My favourite powder highlighter is Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector in Champagne Pop. It’s absolutely stunning! It’s so buttery and pigmented and you can read more about it here. 100% worth the price! Combined with the Iconic London Illuminator drops, these really get you that summery dewy glow!
The final product I love for creating a glow is Mac Prep and Prime Fix+. It’s the perfect finishing touch to any makeup routine as it stops your face from looking cakey, refreshes your face and leaves that beautiful dewy glow. If you want your highlighter to be seriously glowy, spray Mac Prep and Prime Fix+ onto your brush before applying your powder highlighter and it will make the highlight stand out even more. Glowy skin coming your way!
