Becoming the “It” Girl with Glowy Summer Makeup Routine

Even while many of us at some time gave in to the matte cosmetics craze, today it’s all about the glow, especially during the summer. The summer light brilliantly reflects sparkling cosmetics, bringing forth your inner sun goddess when you wear glowy makeup. Here is our advice for applying makeup for a dewy summer complexion.

The Base

In direct sunshine, a heavier foundation is more perceptible. When it comes to your foundation, look for goods with a thin consistency. In general, products like tinted moisturizers and BB/CC creams are designed to have a thinner consistency while yet providing adequate coverage for any flaws you wish to conceal, such as redness or discoloration. Put a touch of highlighter beneath your preferred base for the best summer skin. Your skin will appear subtle, blurry, and glowing as a result. 

Apply bronzer to the parts of your face (forehead, cheekbones, chin, and nose) where the sun would naturally give you a tan. To seem even more sun-kissed, lightly dab a blush that complements your skin tone over these spots. Bonus points if it incorporates shimmer. 

pigments that reflect light for a dazzling shine without seeming too glittery.

You need to get your hands on a dewy setting spray if you love fresh, long-lasting makeup looks and glowing skin. They’re your one-way ticket to dewy skin since they combine the durability of some of the most recognizable setting sprays with a glass-skin sheen. 

Yves Saint Laurent Touche Éclat Blur Primer

The Yves Saint Laurent Touche Éclat Blur Primer evens out skin tone and minimizes pores while leaving behind a gorgeous shine, perfectly preparing your complexion for makeup.

The mattifying and blurring product, which is ideal for all skin types and is flecked with golden glitter, helps to balance the complexion and keep oils at bay so that your skin appears so smooth throughout the day.

Charlotte Tilbury Beautiful Skin Liquid Foundation

Charlotte Tilbury’s liquid foundation is a necessity when you want to completely conceal your flaws while still enabling your skin to seem, well, like skin. The medium-coverage solution, which contains hyaluronic acid, brightening rose, and smoothing Bix-Activ, promises to give you a radiant glow while successfully hiding pores and flaws. According to the manufacturer, the vegan seamless formula should remain on your cup for up to 16 hours.

Rare Beauty Soft Pinch Liquid Blush 

This blush has been popular on TikTok for a reason since it fulfills every need for a liquid blush. It is long-lasting, blendable, pigmented, and buildable. It comes in stylish packaging that is simple to toss in your cosmetic bag and a broad choice of wearable colors. 

Chanel Les Beiges Healthy Glow Bronzing Cream

Apply the Chanel Les Beiges Healthy Glow Bronzing Cream for a dewy, shimmer-free appearance. When this product reaches your skin, its balm-like, cream-gel texture rapidly melts, leaving a flood of warm, velvety color in its wake. Its three hues each include 

e.l.f Dewy Coconut Setting Mist

Glowy skin and a coconut aroma are two of our favorite things and the e.l.f. Cosmetics Dewy Coconut Setting Spray combines both. This is your go-to secret for glowing skin. This glass-skin staple, which has a fresh finish and is infused with cucumber, green tea, and coconut, will keep your makeup in place all day.

MAC Cosmetic Fix+ Magic Radiance

The MAC Cosmetics Fix + Magic Radiance is another favorite in the series. This product, which is the dewy selection in their renowned setting spray range, is a go-to for makeup that looks fresh and has a long-lasting finish. Simply spritz the skin with this vitamin C and hyaluronic acid-enriched product for the appearance of glass skin.

Eye Makeup

Once again, the focus of this stage is more on the skin than on the mascara and eyeshadow. If your concealer is on the drier side, you may always put a small quantity of eye cream over it to hydrate your under-eye area after applying concealer. For natural makeup, you don’t want it to be overly yellow, pink, or copper. Apply your preferred cream eyeshadow first, and then apply extending mascara to complete the look.

Any brow product you use should be a few shades lighter than the color of your hair; brow pigment that is too dark might seem harsh and unnatural.

Charlotte Tilbury Eyes to Mesmerise Cream Eyeshadow

You have plenty of playtime, and the delicate shimmer gives your lids a brilliant (rather than sparkly) appearance. You don’t need to rush when using your fingers or a brush to mix it because it takes a few minutes to fully set. Once it has dried, it won’t feel tight or dry on your lids, and the color wash stays vibrant all day long without smearing. Since the little pots contain a lot of substance, they will last you for months.

MAC Cosmetics Pro Longwear Paint Pot

When you have oily eyelids, using cream shadows may be challenging since the pigments tend to crease, transfer, and smudge throughout the day. The solution used by MAC Cosmetics has a power similar to a primer that holds the makeup in place for hours on end. The color palette offers both bold tones like burgundy and subtle alternatives to cover lid damage.

Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara

This mascara lived up to the anticipation, so it didn’t just happen to become an icon. It makes good on its claim to provide rich black volume while extending, curling, and separating the lashes. The clump-free volume builds up smoothly, and we enjoyed how the hourglass-shaped brush makes it easier to get parted lashes. It adds thickness without giving them an overdone appearance, and it is quite simple to take off. 

Hourglass Arch Volumizing Brow Shaping Gel

If you’re a fan of the brand or are searching for a premium brow gel that offers a flexible, natural hold, you won’t be dissatisfied if you spend more money on this one. The dual-sided spoolie applicator that comes with the transparent, lightweight product makes brushing up the hairs and placing them in place very straightforward.


Lipstick colors that are lighter and more bare tend to make skin seem tanner. Apply your preferred color, then a gloss. For a beautiful lip, apply some highlighter to your cupid’s bow. 

Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick

This liquid solution from Stila dries down fully for a long-lasting finish if you’re wanting to swipe and forget. However, this matte liquid is quite easy to use because it contains avocado oil and vitamin E, unlike other matte liquids on the market that can appear and feel chalky and dry.

Fenty Beauty Slip Shine Sheer Shiny Lipstick

Slip Shine is a thin, creamy lipstick that comes in a variety of shades, from subtle neutrals to shimmery bursts. The pomegranate butter-infused, clinically-proven moisture-lock solution conditions your lips for instantly poutier, fuller-looking lips—no mirror necessary.

Dior Lip Glow Oil

We can see why this lip oil caused such a stir among TikTokers. The hydrating, thick cream has a minty flavor. The thick doe-applicator’s small curl makes it seem like it is embracing your lips while applying the gloss, which is its finest feature. 


We enjoy wearing glitter on our fingers, eyelids, and occasionally, our lips if we’re in the mood. We don’t like glitter on our forehead, along the bridge of our nose, or on our cheekbones. We are thus constantly dissatisfied when a highlighter, which theoretically promises to give us a healthy glow, instead renders us disco ball-like and leaves sparkling specks behind.

Rare Beauty Positive Light Liquid Luminizer Highlighter

Positive Light Liquid Luminizer Highlighter from Rare Beauty glides onto the skin to give you a complexion that radiates from the inside out. After being mixed and melted into the skin, the pearl particles in each of the eight iridescent shades—Enlighten, a champagne tint, is shown above—give the skin a dewy shine.

Charlotte Tilbury Beauty Highlighter Wand

The Charlotte Tilbury Beauty Highlighter Wand’s cushion applicator enables the color to disperse across the skin uniformly, leaving just radiance. There are no bulky glitters; instead, the rose gold pigments in each of the five shades mirror the delicate, ambient light. It’s understandable why it became popular on TikTok and frequently sold out.

More and more people are going crazy about this cosmetic trend as individuals begin to appreciate their natural beauty and the rise of the temperature is making people want to wear as little makeup as they can. With these suggestions, you’ll undoubtedly have the glowing appearance you want for this summer.
