7 Makeup Necessities for a Dewy Summer Look


One thing increasing temperatures are good for: creating beautiful, glowing skin. How do we capitalize on this once-a-year situation (aka take selfies to last the rest of the year)? We’ve created a round-up of the best beauty products that will make you look HOT–not sweaty–as used by some of our favorite makeup artists.



Before applying any makeup, use a face roller! These products are relatively new to the market, but they will surely do a great job of reducing puffiness and rejuvenating your skin! Specifically, the S CARAT works to firm and tone the look of skin that tends to slacken around the eyes, lips, forehead, and jawline. We know it’s Hot Girl Summer, and sleep might not be your top priority. That’s why the S CARAT comes in clutch when getting glammed up! It’s the perfect way to start the makeup process because it refreshes and lifts the skin before it’s layered with other products.

Jurlique Rose Moisture Plus Daily Moisture Balancing Serum

This incredibly hydrating serum helps to rebalance and address signs of dehydration and dryness. Marshmallow Root Extract draws precious moisture to the skin, while the essential fatty acids in Rose Hip Oil give long-lasting hydration. It provides extended moisture to keep skin cushioned, fresh and radiant!

Benefit POREfessional Primer

After using a facial roller to wipe away any toxins trapped in the skin and a serum to moisturize the skin, makeup artists recommend using a primer to act as a main base for the makeup. This specific primer by Benefit Cosmetics, quickly minimizes the appearance of pores and fine lines for smoother-than-smooth skin. This lightweight balm is oil free, complements all skin tones, and helps makeup stay put! It’s also made with a vitamin E derivative known to protect skin from free radicals.

One of the key parts to having glowing skin is a highlighter of some sort. This particular one from RMS Beauty creates a sensuous, luminous glow without making your skin look glitter-y or grease-y. It works for all skin tones and types (probably why it’s one of their best sellers!).
