I hate wearing a lot of make-up while I’m laying by the pool or at the beach. I want that glowy flawless make-up look without using a ton of products. I don’t want to spend the time getting ready just to have all my make-up sweat off or ruined in the water. I want to get out and enjoy vacation!
Enhance what you have
Right before we left for Cabo I headed to Vanity Lash Lounge and had my lashed lifted and tinted, a great alternative to lash extensions. I also had my eyebrows laminated which I am completely obsessed with. They were always on point. If you are local to the area, you can take $15 off your service by mentioning my code: JAMIE.
After that, I grabbed a couple of products to both protect my skin and also add to that glowy natural look.
Protect and Perfect
First up, sunscreen. Per recommendation I bought First Aid Beauty’s weightless sunscreen in SPF 30. I mixed that with a few drops of Drunk Elephants Bronzing drops for an all over sun kissed face with the added benefit of sun protection.
Next up, to add a little color. I think the key to an all over glowy make-up look is to use liquid products as opposed to powder. I have tried a few liquid blushes before and have found them to be very pigmented and tricky to blend leaving me looking slightly clownish. Enter Kaja beauty to negate that problem. The cheek stamp (I use the color bossy which is a soft coral) is subtle and very easy to blend.
You can’t have color without thinking about your lips! My tried and true summer staple for a pretty and hydrated pout is Dior’s Lip Glow. They have a limited edition color out right now, ultra pink which is ultimately what I bought.
Last, the glow factor. There are a lot of great liquid highlighters on the market but I went with Rare Beauty’s luminizer in the color outshine. It is easy to blend and super lightweight. I also wanted to add a light shine and skin perfecto to my entire body, because why not? I have tried other products but nothing has impressed me more that Sunday Riley’s Fairy Godmother. It is so subtle and lightweight that people think it is just your skin glowing in all of it’s beautiful glory! It also has vitamin C and CoQ10 to nourish the skin.
