Summer Glowy Skin


Having glowy skin to beam to the heavens and back is all the rage. Even if you do end up looking 
like you've just done the highlighter challenge or you look like a disco ball! Personally, I don't think there is such thing as looking too glowy! For me I can find it quite hard to find more affordable products that can achieve this look, as I don't want to spend loads of money on a few items and just use high end makeup.
 I've tried to use the same amount of products as I usually do just will more glow!

Step 1
One of the key steps to achieve a glowy look is to use an illuminating primer or a liquid
highlight before your foundation. My favourites are the Loreal lumi magique primer or the Sleek
barekissed illuminator in Monaco. Sometimes I like to use the primer and then the liquid
highlight on top of the high points of my face to give me that extra glow that we I desire.

Step 2
If you think you're skin is already too glowy for your liking then you can skip this step and use
your regular foundation, if not then using a foundation with a dewy finish will be your best friend.
I like the Maybelline fit me (although I still have to mix in a white foundation into the lightest shade)
or the Diorskin forever foundation. These give the perfect dewy and glowy look to the skin.

Step 3
I keep concealer the same as usual, not matter what the look. I like mixing the Revlon colourstay
and Collection lasting perfection concealer together for the perfect formula and consistency.
Nothing looks worse that shiny and creased concealer under your eyes, so make sure to set it in
place. I use the Ben Nye translucent powder. If you are looking for something that is more 
affordable and also more accessible then the Soap and Glory concealer kit is great!

Step 4
Despite the fact that I have dry skin I still like to set my foundation in place otherwise it tends
to move all around my face or go patchy. To set my face with powder and still keep it 
dewy and glowy looking I use a light dusting of the Ben Nye translucent powder or the Maybelline
fit me powder. Personally I haven't tried it but the Bourjois poudre de riz is supposed to be good!

Step 5
Cheeks are the products that you can really experiment with. Blush, bronzer and highlighter.
I like to use a matte bronzer, but if you are wanting to go an extra step that using a bronzer with 
a slight sheen, will make you look like a Goddess. Another way to make you look radiant is with
a shimmery blush. My all time favourite is the MUA mosaic blush in English Rose. Highlight is the 
most obvious way to look glowy. My top tip is to use more than one. I use the MUA original 
undress your skin highlighter, with a light hand over the top of my blush. I then take the same highlight
but in the shade iridescent gold on the top of my cheek bones and the center of my face. If I'm
wanting to look extra glowy and kick it up a step I will either take the Becca X Jaclyn Hill 
champagne pop highlight or Mac soft and gentle over the top of the gold highlight.

Step 6
One step that I will always recommend is to set your makeup in place with a setting spray. 
The good thing is that you can get them to give you different finishes. Whether that's matte
or dewy. I like to use a wide variety of finishing sprays but if I'm going for a glowy finish then I 
love to use the MAC fix + as it gives a beautiful hydrating and radiant look to the skin.


There are so many ways to get that summer glowy skin, but this is my
favourite way to achieve this! Hope you enjoy recreating this look for summer!
