How to Get a Perfect Summer Glow

Easy tips and tricks to take you away from winter dullness and into summer glow realness


Switch up your foundation routine

If you don’t want to ditch it, you don’t have to; but avoid the summer cake face by adding primer oil to your foundation before you apply. This will smooth out the foundation formula and have it blend into your skin more naturally while achieving that perfect summer glow right off the bat.

Don’t forget to mist

If you don’t already have a hydrating mist, you might want to pick one up. Before applying your highlighter, lightly mist your brush and if you’re feeling a little on the dry side, on your face as well for an extra dewy complexion.

Apply highlighter ASAP

My friend and makeup guru, Frenchi, taught me this tip and I haven’t stopped using it since. If your foundation is still a little tacky, this is a prime moment to dust on your highlighter because it’ll blend into the makeup you’ve already applied to create a seamless glow instead of the makeup sitting on top.

Next time you’re applying your highlight, try these tips and I can promise you’ll see a different in the way you glow!
