Easy Tricks to get Glowing Summer Makeup


Time to ditch that matte winter makeup. Instead, go for a light reflecting foundation that has an illuminating effect. These will help blur out fine lines and pores, if any. Go for a water-based foundation and stay away from heavy cream or oil-based foundations. Better still, go for creams that give a light to medium coverage and take care of any blemishes and acne marks while making you look flawless.






A good brightener under the eyes is a right choice for making dull eyes look awake and youthful. Try going for lighter illuminating formulations instead of cakey ones.

Ditch the heavy eyeliner and invest in a soft colour eye pencil instead such as browns, blue etc. This will not only brighten the eyes but also give a fresh look to the whole face.

A good sunscreen is a must to stay put the minimal makeup you have used. It will also act as a good base for your makeup.

If you like the sun-kissed look, invest in a shimmer or matt bronzer. Apply on your forehead and cheekbones to add warmth to your skin.

Opt for light shades of lipstick such as nudes, pinks or corals. Summer is the time to go light on makeup. Any heavy makeup is a big no-no. If you are not a lipstick person, go for sheer lip balms.









Apply mascara lavishly to instantly open up the eyes and brighten the look. Clear mascaras are a big hit during summers.

Removing makeup with a good makeup remover is equally important to get a clean canvas for the next day.





Follow these simple tricks and get glowing makeup, even in the hot summers!
