Beauty Hacks: That Summer Glow | Summer Make Up Look *

Want to know how to fake that summer glow? I have all the secrets for the perfect summer time make up look. ☀️


*this post contains products that were gifted to me in PR for modelling purposes. All opinions are my own as always.

In this post, I’m going to be sharing the top products and top tips to create the perfect summer glowing make up look.


I always think that great make up starts with good skin care and my favourite products for creating glowing skin are definitely:

  • Pixi Glow Tonic
  • Mario Badescu Rose Spray
  • The Ordinary Peeling Solution

Liquid Highlighter

This works as a great base to apply before your foundation to create a glowing and healthy looking complexion. Sometimes I use it like a primer and sometimes I use it by mixing it in with my foundation. I used the Jeffree Star Cosmetics Skin Frost for this look underneath my foundation to create a glowing base. I then put on some revolution full coverage foundation on the areas that needed concealing and then I used the stick foundation everywhere else.

Gold Hues

Gold is the epitome of summer so it seemed only fitting to add some into this look. On my eyes, I patted on some gold eyeshadow from the Jeffree Star Cosmetics Thirsty Palette in shade filthy rich.

For summer looks, I always go mad on the bronzer! I love to look tanned in summer so for this look I actually used two different bronzers. Firstly, I used the Benefit Hoola Bronzer to contour out my cheeks and forehead and jaw line. Then, I went over the top with a large fan brush with the Rimmel London Bronzer for a more natural appeal.


Anyone that knows me, will know that I LOVE Highlighter. I can’t go a day without it and I really think that less is more is a lie when it comes to Highlighter. More more more! I used the Jeffree Star Cosmetics Skin Frost in Summer Snowcone and also the Revolution Highlighter in Golden Lights.

Faux Freckles

I have always been envious of those with freckles! I just think they’re so so beautiful! I added some faux ones to my face for this look using the Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz. I pressed the pencil into my skin and spinned the end a little to create a more natural look and not perfect circles – to ensure they appear more natural.

A Killer Lip

The lipstick I have worn for this is from Antipodes in the shade ‘ South Pacific Coral.’ This shade is perfect for summer due to its coral hues and glossy finish. Antipodes is an organic, unique brand that uses sustainable ingredients to create their products.
