8 minimal glowy makeup faves

Shop

Now that it’s summer I have been AAAALLL about glowy skin when it comes to my skincare and makeup routine! I’ve been trying out tons of products lately that will give your skin that perfect sunkissed glow without looking glittery or oily (it’s a fine line haha). So today I want to roundup my absolute favorite products to give your skin that perfect glow! Most of these are products I especially love on really quick 2 minute makeup days type of days!

In both the photo above and the photo below I am wearing Charlotte Tilbury flawless filter underneath my foundation, like as a primer. This is one of my holy grail makeup products and there are so many different ways you can use it! It blurs imperfections, smooths your skin, and illuminates your complexion to make it look like you have a filter on your face IRL haha. You can wear it as a primer, a highlight, or even an all over foundation. Like I mentioned I love wearing it as a primer to really blur all pores, texture variations and imperfections!

In the photo above, I’m wearing the Charlotte Tilbury beauty wand in ‘spotlight’ (but i also have it in peachgasm and love that as well). It is the prettiest liquid highlighter for the high of your cheek bone, brow bone, eye lids…everywhere! I just dab it directly onto my skin and blend in with my finger tips! A little bit goes a long way so this tube will last you a longggg time. I like to apply this after I’ve done bronzer and blush! So glowy and pretty!

If you do not have glowscreen in your makeup bag / skincare drawer...add this to cart ASAP. I actually JUST ran out of mine and life is bleak without it lol (don't worry i have more coming). Glowscreen is perfect for no makeup days when you want just a little bit of glow + color AND spf! I also love to wear this as a primer underneath foundation for SPF and a subtle glow. It's subtle and lays beautifully under makeup and is 100% a summer necessity for me!

This is a new product for me I just got from sephora but one I think I will forever have in my summer makeup bag! I was looking for a new tinted moisturizer that didn't really look and feel like a foundation, if that makes sense. This one has light coverage so it's perfect for beach / pool days, but it also has a radiant finish and will make your skin look naturally glowy. Also love that it's made with clean ingredients and SPF 35! I love wearing this on 'no makeup' days - when i'm out and about running errands or heading to a yoga class or the pool and just want a little bit of coverage and glow!

I've shared this product SO much but in case you haven't heard haha...this is like a glowy primer and moisturizer all in one! I actually love mixing a little bit of this with my foundation to sort of make your own tinted glowy moisturizer. It's really hydrating and I love that it's kind of like skincare and makeup in one!

This is just an all around favorite lip gloss that I've been wearing for years. I especially love it in the summer to compliment a minimal glowy makeup look. It's super hydrating and helps your lips look plump and moisturized! I have this in 4 shades haha that's how good it is!

I've been raving about this bronzer duo for months now! I'd never used a cream and powder bronzer at the same time before but it is a GAME CHANGER! This product will help you to look contoured and sculpted if that's the look you're going for, or just naturally bronzed like you just got back from the beach. This is the bronzer I am wearing in all of these photos! (I'm wearing the shade 'she's sculpted').

Another product I've been raving about for years now and one I have with me at ALL times. I especially love bringing this with me to the lake or when I'm traveling. A lot of times after my morning skincare routine I don't want to put on makeup but want just a little something. This primer will blur your imperfections and give your skin a very subtle glow AND hydrate it all at the same time. Also works great as a primer to wear underneath your foundation! You can get 15% off tula with code LAURENSIMS
