Everyone wants a supermodel glow but NO ONE wants to be shiny and oily. Follow these tips on how to look gorgeous and glowing, not slick, this summer.
My number one piece of advice is to lighten up on the makeup. As temps rise, it gets harder to wear full coverage makeup. I LOVE full coverage, but I definitely tend to break out when my skin can’t breathe. It also tends to cake and crease if it’s super hot and humid outside. Opt for a BB or CC Cream instead. To get a glow like Gigi Hadid, try a Maybelline product. She’s a brand ambassador. The Dream Bronze BB is an 8-in-1 beauty balm. It illuminates, gives you a gorgeous glow, evens, smooths, and protects skin with SPF 25! You need to wear sunscreen every day!
If you still want to wear a foundation, definitely choose something that is oil-free. Instead of applying powder, use oil blotting sheets to soak up any shine throughout the day. In the afternoon, mist skin with a hydrating spray for an extra glow. I love the Glow Getter Mist by Wander Beauty. It doesn’t ruin your makeup, instantly hydrates, and smells light and amazing.
I also recently became OBSESSED with the just-launched Urban Decay NAKED Skin Shapeshifter palette. It’s the coolest thing you’ve ever seen and helps conceal, contour, and highlight skin all in one. It’s so versatile and perfect for summer travel. Highlighting is the most obvious way to glow without shine — apply the Urban Decay Afterglow Highlighter Palette on cheekbones for a gorgeous flush.
At night, after cleansing, mix just a couple drops of a hydrating oil with your moisturizer to repair skin while you sleep. Or use the brand newH2 Elemental Energy Hydrating Cloud Cream, which works on all skin types. It’s light but super hydrating and perfect for evening and smoothing skin tone.
