With summer in full swing, I am all about that minimal makeup look. Finding products that not only look good but feel fresh and natural on my face is key. Nobody wants heavy foundation and pounds of eyeshadow on when it’s 90 degrees and humid beyond belief. I’ve recently been seeing Glossier everywhere on the internet and was instantly intrigued. I love that this company is founded on products inspired by the people who use them. It’s truly beauty in real life. Glossier believes in skin first, makeup second. Not looking to makeup as the “fix” to your face but a way to enhance and have fun with your base palette.
I knew the products must be good after hearing several rave reviews and with the launch of their new Glossier Lash Slick mascara, it was time. If there is one beauty product I can never go a day without, it’s mascara. Today I thought I’d share how I’m turning to Glossier for my summer beauty routine and my thoughts on the products since using them. First things first, we’ll start with the Glossier Perfecting Skin Tint that preaches “more skin, less makeup” [aka the best motto for summer]. I love how lightweight this skin tint is and how dewy it left my skin. Extra bonus – it allowed my freckles to shine through [which I love] but still evened out my uneven skin tones and made me feel like I had just enough coverage to go about my day. Next up, the Glossier Wowder Duo which is the prettiest packaged weightless finishing powder out there. This helps keep shine to a minimum, set my foundation and reduces the appearance of pores. I’m obsessed with the brush that comes with this powder and the way that the powder is dispersed [if you buy it, you’ll know what I mean]. Of course, no summer beauty routine is complete without a little cheek color, so I tried the Glossier Cloud Paint which is a gel-cream formula of blush that goes on so easy and is the perfect amount of color to add to those cheekbones. Just simply squeeze a little bit out on your fingers and then paint away! It is a buildable blush so if you like a little more color just dab a little more on. I use it in the puff color and it’s the prettiest shade of pink. Dewy skin, you’re cute. Now for the fourth step in my 5-minute summer makeup routine, one of my absolute favorite products I discovered from Glossier which is the Glossier Boy Brow aka the only brow product you’ll ever want to use again. It fluffs, fills and shapes all at the same time. I am using it in the blond shade and ladies, it’s good. So easy to use and it really is a one-stop shop to making those brows look fab. An absolute must-try product! As soon as those brows are on fleek, the next step in my summer makeup routine is of course – mascara. Like I mentioned above, Glossier recently released their new Glossier Lash Slick mascara which took roughly 248 mascara combinations to perfect. I love that none of it flakes off or smudges and is water resistant [not waterproof] but stands up the sweat that summer brings. This is an awesome under $20 mascara option that will do its part in elongating and defining those beautiful lashes of yours without clumping or giving you those famous raccoon eyes. Last but not least, it’s lip time. The glossiest of all glosses, I top off my easy summer look with Glossier Lip Gloss. I promise you this gloss isn’t sticky, won’t dry out your lips or leave you wondering if you have shine on those lips of yours. It packs a BIG glossy punch and feels amazing on. A moisturizing lip gloss that lasts? Sign me up. Five minutes later and voila, DONE. It’s amazing what a few quality beauty essentials can do in your summer makeup routine. Au natural elevated. Glossier, I get it and I’m hooked. Thank you for making my face the happiest it’s ever been. Shop today’s post along with other Glossier products! Have you tried this brand?
