Perfect Summer Glow

With summer here, no one wants wants to look like a cake face or feel like they have overloaded on makeup. I wanted to share my favorite products that I have been using every day to create a flawless summer glow.


Every morning, I make sure to start with the Smashbox Photo Finish Primer Oil. I either mix this oil with my moisturizer or I apply it all over the face after applying moisturizer. This Primer Oil is infused with a blend of 15 essential and lipid-rich plant oils which adds tons of moisture for the dry summer heat. Since using this product, I have actually found that my skin has cleared up from acne.


This next product is a bit newer to me, but I have loved it since the first application. The Becca Backlight Priming Filter, blurs imperfection and adds a slight glow under foundation. Unlike other primers, it doesn’t have that silicone feeling, it glides onto the skin with a silky finish.

I am not one to spend a lot of money on foundation, I still love my Cover Girl 3-in-One foundation, but I am loving the light coverage of the Clinique Super City Block BB. I wear the shade 01 Fair, for my pale skin. This foundation is compact in this cushion packaging, which I didn’t think I would like originally, but I love the product and how easy it is to throw into my handbag and touch up throughout the day. This product also has SPF 50 to protect your skin from the sun’s harmful rays.


While I may not have found my holy grail concealer yet, I love setting my under eye area with the Laura Mercier Secret Brightening Powder. This light powder keeps your concealer from creasing and adds light to your under eyes.


I am super late to the beauty blender train, but that is only because I hate spending that much money on a sponge that will eventually need to get replaced. So I decided to try the Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge. I think it is so cool that when you wet the sponge it doubles in size! I use the flat end to apply foundation, when I am not using the Clinique cushion foundation, and the tapered side to blend concealer and apply the Laura Mercier powder.


I am so excited to show you guys this Becca x Jaclyn Hill Champagne Collection Face Palette. I have been so obsessed with it! I have been loving mixing Champagne Pop and Prosecco Pop for that #HighlightonFleek look. My favorite blush for the perfect glow is the top left called Rose Spritz.


Let me know what your favorite products have been for a glowy summer look or just for summer in general, I love hearing your feedback!
