A 5 Minute Summer Makeup Look That Will Have You Glowing

Summer is here and that means it’s hotter than ever and the last thing you want is to wear heavy makeup. Here’s an easy way to look fresh and polished without spending a lot of time.

Get Glowing

Apply an illuminating primer like Laura Mercier Radiance on freshly cleansed and moisturized skin. This will give your face a dewy “lit from within” look. Follow up with a bit of tinted moisturizer and only use concealer where you need it. Powder lightly on your t-zone area and apply a golden/peachy blush like Nars Orgasm or MAC Springsheen on your cheeks.

Define Your Brows

The easiest way to look polished fast is by defining your brows. Use a slanted brush to apply a brow powder that’s slightly lighter than your natural brow color and fill in the sparse areas. Apply less product towards the front of your brows and more color towards the end in order to avoid the “angry groucho” effect.

Open Up Your Eyes

The fastest way to look wide awake is to curl your lashes and apply some mascara. You can also line the waterline or get really close to the lash line to add more definition. Add a dab of highligher in either liquid or powder form on the inner corner of your eyes. This will brighten up your eyes right away.

If you have a few seconds to spare, grab a crease brush and apply a medium brown/taupey color in the crease. This will give your eyes immediate definition without having to do a complicated eye look.

The Finishing Touches

Dab a bit of luminizer on your fingers and apply it to your cheekbones, brow bone and cupid’s bow. All you need in order to finish the look up is a bit of lip gloss and you’re ready to go. Lip colors that work beautiful for summer include peach and pink with golden undertones.

Summer makeup should be fresh, carefree and sexy. Try this look and let us know what you think.
