How to Get That Summer Glow


With Summer in full swing, it’s time to pull out those summer dresses and change your makeup routine to something light and dewy. I love a natural, tanned, no-makeup makeup look especially in the summer. I’m partnering with Nordstrom to share a few products I’ve tried to get that perfect, dewy, just-came-home-from-vacation look even if vacation these days are going from Santa Bedroomes to Las Kitchenas in this quarantine life haha!
Nordstrom has been my one-stop shop for years making it easy to stock up on everything I need for each season. Whether I’m looking for the perfect outfit or beauty products for a flawless glow, they’ve got me covered. I’ll be sharing a new bronzer, tinted moisturizer, nude lip, plumping lipgloss and primer/foundation/highlighter/all in one product. So many great finds for that perfect summer look. 

First, let’s start with the BRONZER, because we all know that’s a summer necessity to give you that sun kissed glow. This one is amazing and was drawn to it after reading all the amazing reviews! It gives you an airbrushed look and blends so well. I love that it has hyaluronic acid which alleviates dry skin and reduces the appearance of fine lines. I love that this really blends in your skin and doesn’t at all look cakey which was a reason I drew away from other bronzers. Added bonus, it’s huge so it’s going to last a good bit. I got the shade medium but feel like I could’ve gotten a shade darker for an extra tan look, however, it is buildable and can also be used to contour. 
Next is this TINTED MOISTURIZER. I think I’m on bottle number 7 of this. It’s been a go-to for me the last couple of years as it gives such a beautiful tinted glow while adding some coverage. It comes out white and turns into the perfect tanned glow once it’s rubbed in. I tend to treat this as my foundation come spring/summer since it’s so lightweight. Just add a little bit of translucent powder to keep it in place. I will say, it’s a go-to when I’m tan, but if I’m not, I mix it with my regular moisturizer to still get that bronze glow without looking too dark compared to the rest of my body. If you’re wanting a FULL COVERAGE FOUNDATION, this is the OG of all foundations. I love this for special occasions or when I want to get really dolled up. It makes your skin look absolutely flawless and covers absolutely e.v.e.r.y.t.h.i.n.g. It is matte and a little heavier, however, you can definitely add a glowy primer or go a little extra on the highlighter to create that summer glow which brings me to this MAGIC ALL-IN ONE PRODUCT
If you can’t take my word for it, read the reviews, but omg where has this product been all my life?! This FLAWLESS FILTER PRIMER & HIGHLIGHTER can be used as a primer, highlighter, foundation and totally buildable. It gives the perfect glow no matter how you use it and a must-have for a dewy summer look! So, so good!
Last but not least, lips! I recently tried this LIP PLUMPING GLOSS in the color pink and makes my lips feel so soft and shiny. It does tingle and promises lip-plumping effects. I feel like that and in combination with a a super glossy look definitely makes your lips look plump and full. I love this over this NUDE LIPSTICK in the color “pale lip”. I am obsessed with this lipstick. It’s one of the most moisturizing lipsticks I’ve ever used and love the color especially for an everyday summer lip. I’d stick to a light, neutral lip to give all the summer glow vibes.



Don’t forget the eyeshadow (this palette has every color you can think of), brows, eyelash primer for extra volume and length paired with your favorite mascara, and finishing spray to make sure everything stays in place. I will also link my curling iron    for effortless waves.
I hope you all enjoyed this post and would love to hear what your go-to summer makeup products are in the comments below! XOXO
