How To Embrace Glossy Skin This Summer
Posted on May 26 2021
Dewy, glossy, shiny, glowy… Whatever you call it, we’re all about embracing your skin’s natural sheen this summer.
The trick to your look coming off as dewy rather than oily? Putting an emphasis on the high points of your face using glowy, shiny products and keeping the rest of your visage more matte. Another key to pulling off the look is healthy skin—we suggest exfoliating with our Gentle Exfoliator a few times a week to remove dead skin cells and refresh your complexion. After cleansing and applying tonic, use a rich face cream (try our Hydrating Cream) and massage it into your skin. Apply what’s leftover to your T-zone and let it soak in on its own.
To prep your face for makeup, use a hydrating primer—like our Face Primer or Universal Primer—and leave a light layer of product that sits on top of your skin. Next, apply concealer where you need to—on blemishes, around your nose and chin, and under your eyes. We’d recommend letting your bare skin shine, but if you don’t feel comfortable going without foundation use a moist sponge to apply our Dual Powder Foundation or Mineral Powder. This will give you a sheer layer of coverage that appears slightly shiny rather than matte.
Now that your base is set, up the dew factor with a shimmery cream blush like our Multi Pot in Peony, Magnolia, Conch or Dahlia. Pro tip: the 3-in-1 products works on your eyes, cheeks, and lips to make creating a look easy. Add your favorite liquid or cream highlighter—like our Liquid Radiance—to your eyelids, cheekbones, chin, cupid’s bow, and the bridge of your nose for extra shine. For your pout, swipe on a few coats of our Sheer Gloss in Crystal to keep things fresh.
To lock in your look, generously spritz our Sea Mineral Hydra Mist all over your face. This will increase the wear time and lifespan of your makeup and keep you radiant, hydrated, and dewy all day long.
