Glossy, glowy makeup looks are the only way to go in Summer ’22! Maintaining that glisten all day look can be a little challenging in the summer heat, so this week we’re breaking down how to keep things looking glossy for longer with some PÜR favorites. Make sure to put your sunnies on before you keep reading—there’s a pretty bright glow ahead!
- Get Prep-py
The term “foundation” has become a little misleading—your foundation isn’t the only product your glossy makeup look is “built” on. Helping your makeup look stay put also depends on paving the way with a hydrating moisturizer like 4-in-1 Cloud Cream Gel-to-Water Hydrating Essence Moisturizer. This rich, pillowy-soft moisturizer preps and primes the skin for your everyday makeup application and absorbs quickly into the skin to instantly hydrate and help minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
- You’re In Your Prime!
Adding one more step to your makeup prep can amp up your glossy look and help prevent creasing and product transfer. PÜR’s 4-in-1 Correcting Primers are all targeted to specific skincare concerns, so you can choose the formula that suits you best. 4-in-1 Correcting Primer Prep and Perfect or 4-in-1 Correcting Primer Hydrate & Balance are great for a glow because of conditioning and soothing ingredients like Shea Butter and Aloe Vera. If you’ve got hyperpigmentation or dark spots, you can opt for 4-in-1 Correcting Primer Dark Spot Corrector to help even out the look of your skin tone, and 4-in-1 Correcting Primer Anti-Blemish & Mattifying Primer is a great choice for more blemish-prone skin or oilier skin types.
- Mix in Your Glow
One trick to help get that extra glossy sheen is a little bit of at-home makeup mixing… we call it a skin care cocktail: add a pump of Go with The Glow Niacinamide Drops to your 4-in-1 Tinted Moisturizer Broad Spectrum SPF 20 for a light coverage and a more radiant-looking glow. Go with the Glow is formulated with a Superfood Blend of Kale, Aloe, Spinach and Lavender that help keep your skin moisturized and plump-looking. If you want to help keep your gloss from fizzling out, you can also carry Go with the Glow and reapply a little over your makeup for a boost of hydration later in the day!
- Highlight Those High Points
Now that your base is glossed to perfection, you’re to define your look with blush, contour and bronzer—check out this post for a quick contour how-to! Once you’re look is completely *snatched,* max out your gloss look with Skin Haze CBD Glass Glow Skin Highlighter or Skin Perfecting Powder Afterglow Illuminating Powder. Your application is going to be slightly different depending on which of these glowy options you’re drawn to. Skin Haze applies as a serum, so you can squeeze a couple drops directly onto the high points of your face and gently pat them in. Afterglow is a powder highlight, so it’s best to take a bit of it on a brush and place it on those same high points.
- Ready, Set, Go!
Add instant luminosity and a bit of staying power by setting the finished look with Lit Mist Illuminating Setting Spray. This silky fine mist hydrates and helps illuminate the appearance of skin for a healthy-looking glow, and it’s formulated with skin care ingredients like Green Tea, Ginseng, and Vitamin B to help refresh the complexion and renew skin’s appearance. You can actually incorporate Lit Mist earlier in your skin care routine as well, right after the moisturizer and before your primer—the word on Instagram is that this trick can help prevent creasing. Layers of setting spray in between products can help you get that skin-like, glossy finish, so feel free to spritz Lit Mist throughout the day if you feel your skin is getting a bit too dull!
