Summer Picks Part II: Glowing Summer Makeup

On Jenna I did a great summer look that is quick and easy and gives you that beautiful glowing complexion perfect for a fresh summer look.. 

For her face I put on the Garnier BB Cream Miracle Skin Perfector in Ligh/Medium. It also comes in Medium/Deep and has SPF 15 and UVA/UVB protection. This is a great base because it gives you the perfect coverage to even out the skin and adds a little glow while protecting and perfecting the skin at the same time.

Over top I used Stila’s One Step Bronze Skintone Illuminating Bronzing Serum. This is a great all over glow that gives you that perfect bronzed skin while giving your skin a visibly smooth texture. You can use it over top of the BB cream as I have, or by itself. 

For the blusher I used Nars Multiple in Orgasm. The Nars Multiples are great multi-use tools that everyone should have in their makeup kit. You can use it as a cream blush or as a lip balm. It has such a smooth texture that when applied it blends seamlessly with your skin and gives the appearance of a natural flush to your cheeks. 

For her eyes I put the Nars eyeshadow primer, the Smudgeproof Eyeshadow base, on to ensure that the shadow wouldn’t crease in the hot sun.

Then I applied Makeup Forever’s eyeshadow in N˚306 Diamond Shadow. It adds a subtle shimmer to the lid for a fresh bright look. 

As a liner I used Makeup Forever’s Aqua Black Cream Eyeshadow just to her lash line to add subtle definition that won’t smear or run if you decide to take a dip in the water. 

For her lashes I applied DiorShow Iconic waterproof mascara in black. This gives the lashes beautiful separation and curl to open the eyes and give a youthful essence to the face. 

On her lips I used the Clinique Chubby Stick in 06 Woppin’ Watermelon. This is a great item to throw in your beach bag to add that subtle pop of sheer color to your lips, especially when you see that hot lifeguard coming your way. 

For her hair I used Mixed Chicks leave-in conditioner to help give her beach waves that are soft to the touch. This product will also help to protect her hair from the sun and chlorine and salt water. 

A fun color for your nails is the Nars nail polish in Kutki, which is what I used on Jenna’s nails. After I applied the color I put on the best fast drying top coat in town, Seche Vite. I know it has a weird name and my Mom and I always seem to refer to it as seviche, which is definitely not the correct name. Regardeless of the interesting name, it will give you dry nails in no time! And it also helps your polish to stay on longer with fewer chips. 

I hope you try this look out and see how you like it! Maybe it will become your new everyday makeup routine!
