My Current Natural Summer Makeup Look

A natural summer makeup look can be so difficult to achieve due to the humidity and hot summer sun. Summer makeup has to be done differently than winter makeup because the weather is so different….at least in my experience.

Face

The main thing I change in the summer months is that I like to use lighter products. I like the feeling of lighter face products because I feel like my skin is able to breathe. Unlike when I use a full coverage foundation, it feels restricting on my face. I do not use foundation or even concealer, in the summer! I just use a BB Cream with SPF (at least > 50SPF and PA++). Or even a tinted moisturizer will suffice.

If the SPF and PA levels do not make sense check out my Simple Morning Summer Skincare Routine Post (under the sunscreen). I explain it all!

My all time favorite BB Cream is by MISSHA. I like this one because it is reasonably priced, its easy to get (off amazon), and it has an SPF 50+ and a PA+++. I think this BB Cream is really easy to blend and it goes on really smooth. But it’s a little wet, so it definitely needs to be set with powder. This product has a natural finish and does not even look like you are wearing anything.

Powders

I follow my BB Cream up with some powder to set everything and stop it from sweating away. (For reference I use No. 27 Honey beige.) On most days, I like to use powder. But if want to be a little fancier, I like to these this Translucent Setting Powder.

Both of these powders will set your face nicely during the summer and help keep your makeup looking fresh throughout the day. One of the best makeup tips in summer is to ensure your makeup stays on even under the hot sun!

I use some bronzer to add some color back on my face. My current favorite bronzer is this Matte Bronzer. I just apply a small amount right below the cheekbone, but above the jawline. From your ear to towards the middle of your cheek. I like to line it up to the outer corner of my eye. I also use a small amount for my temples. Make sure to blend it in so it looks more natural. This is a super easy summer makeup trick to help you look more tanned in the summer months.

I tend not to use blush because my cheeks are naturally rosy and I do not want the extra product on my face. Keeping with the natural look, I personally do not want to overdo it. But if you feel like you need more color definitely go for it! Just use a small amount above where you put the bronzer.

Eyes

I hate mascara and I feel like can get smeared easily especially in the summer. Because of that, I just apply false lashes…yes without mascara. I tend to not use mascara because I wear false lashes until they pop off – which is normally a week long. I still really like the natural look even with false lashes.

As for eye shadow, I normally don’t use anything simply because I think false lashes are enough. But if I’m feeling a little extra, I will use a single brown shadow.

Finishing Touches

I use a simple brow gel just to fill in my brows and keep them looking sharp. I find that a gel is quicker and more natural than a pencil then followed by a clear gel. In the summer, I think its really important to finish off your brows with a gel because it makes things a little more sweat proof.

To finish off my natural summer makeup look, I will use some lipstick or just a tinted lip balm. I like a natural makeup look because it’s perfect for looking fresh and put together the entire day. Staying matte throughout the day and you will still look very put together even with just a couple of products!

Summer makeup is all about having glowy skin, which can be achieved by a good skincare routine. Read all about my simple morning summer skincare routine.
