Amy K’s Guide To That Perfect Summer Glow
Updated: Feb 28
One of the great things about the summer is that after you've spent all day in the sun, your skin tends to come alive with a fresh sun-kissed look that requires very little makeup! Well, how would you like to achieve that sun-kissed glow EVERYDAY, with or without the sun’s help? This month’s lesson comes from our very own Amy K who uses the all-natural mineral makeup line Jane Iredale to show you how to create that summer glow and take it from day to night. Click the video below to see Amy's step by step tutorial.
The very first and most important step is to prep your face with Jane Iredale’s Hyaluronic Serum to keep the skin hydrated after washing. Next use the Smooth Affair Primer and Brightener to prime your face before blending on Jane’s Glow Time BB Cream Foundation. This foundation has a dewy feel that helps create that summer glow look. You can also use the Pressed Powder Foundation on top of the BB cream if you are wanting a little extra coverage.
Now that your face is prepped, let’s get into some Bronzer! Many are scared of the word “Bronzer” but using it in your daily routine can bring life to your complexion. Amy uses the Dome Brush to show us how she applies Jane Iredale’s So-Bronze 2 bronzing powder right under the cheek bones for contour and around the temples to create a warmth to the face.
And now that your face has that sun-kissed summer look, let’s move on to the eyes! All you need for an easy daytime look is the Smooth Affair For Eyes in the color Gold and some clean fingers! Amy blends this cream-based shadow over the entire eyelid using just her finger which makes this application quick and easy! She also focuses on areas that the sun would naturally hit by dabbing a small amount under the eyes just above the cheekbone, and on the bridge of the nose. Lastly Amy applies Jane’s Liquid Liner on the top lids and mascara to finish off her look!
When it’s time to take this look from day to night, Amy uses the Pressed Powder Eye Shadow in the color Supernova to give her eyes a smokier look. She uses the Crease Brush to add the shadow in the outer corners of the eyelid creases. Then just blend the shadow well across the crease of the eyelids to enhance that smokey look and add a little glamour and drama to the eyes! To finish off the full look you can add the lip color of your choice. Here Amy uses Jane Iredale’s Lip Fixation Lip Stain in the color Fascination and tops it off with the PureGloss Lip Gloss in Kir Royale to add a little more shimmer!
