5 Glowing Makeup Looks for Summer

Smooth Minimal

The hot and humid Philippine weather during the summer months is definitely not the friendliest to your favorite full-coverage foundation, so a lot of girls opt for light-to-no base for their summer routine. For those days that you want to rock a look that’s more on the au naturale side, you’ve got to make sure your skin is smooth and hydrated like Miss Universe and Calyxta’s April 2015 cover girl, Catriona Gray. OIAM Naturals’ Aloe There, Smooth Skin Soothing Emulsion is definitely one of the cult-favorite multi-use and multi-tasking products! Use it after a bath, before makeup, and at the end of the day and it’ll surely help with any dryness, bumps, and burns. Slap on some sunscreen, brush out your brows, and swipe on your favorite summery peach lipstick and you’re good to go!

Bronze Radiance

Bronzed looks are definitely a summer staple! Just ask Calyxta’s Summer 2019 cover girl, Janine Gutierrez. The sunny season isn’t the time to skimp on shimmer, so we suggest buffing the Physician’s Formula Bronze Booster Glow-Boosting BB Bronzer onto your eyes and cheeks for a monochromatic bronze-y glow. Plus, it even has SPF 20 to help protect your skin from the harsh summer sun.

Draped Blush

If you’re not too big on bronzers, then blush is the next best thing! But for summer, instead of concentrating it on the apples of your cheeks, why not try draping it like Calyxta October 2018 cover girl, Janina Vela? If you’re not too familiar with this trend, draping is when you apply blush to the side of your cheeks, and blending it out to the temple and onto your eyelids. You can even apply a darker blush to where contour would normally be if you want to give your face a bit more structure. For this, we recommend the Detail MakeOver Contour & Blush Palette because not only does it come with two warmer blush shades that are perfect for the summer, it even has a highlight shade for those of you that are about that glow life no matter the time of year.

Extra Bare

With summer makeup trends coming and going every year, one look that will never go out of style is your natural beauty. Embrace the skin you’re in, and smooth on some beauty oil for that extra healthy glow! OIAM Naturals’ face and body oils are perfect for when you want to glisten in your beach pics this summer. The Feelin’ Extra Bronzing Oil can even give your tan that extra oomph!

Yellow Glow

For those of you that still want to rock a full beat in the summer months, here’s a tip: Yellow eyeshadow! Summer is definitely the season for warm eye looks, but that doesn’t mean they have to just be bronze, right? Yellow can be an easy color to amp up your summer smokey eyes! If you’re not yet ready for a full-on honey bee inspired cut crease, try popping some yellow eyeshadow in the inner corners and top it off with a yellow highlighter like our girl, Kylie Jenner. The gold shade from the NYX Strobe of Genius palette would be perfect for this look. That and you get so many other fun and more neutral shades to play with on your eyes and on your face for the rest of the season.
