Lucky for me, my sister is a makeup artist.  She does my makeup a lot which means I have an "in" on all her tips and tricks! She nails the dewy summer look! So, I asked her to share her favorite products she uses to achieve that hydrated, beautiful look on her clients. Without further ado, here they are:


BECCA Shimmering Skin Perfector Liquid Highlighter in the color "Opal" is a liquid luminizer used under foundation. My sister loves to first apply lotion to the face, then add the BECCA highlighter all over the face, and finish with foundation. This highlighter gives your skin a dewy, summery glow and makes your skin look so healthy!


MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural in the color "Give Me Sun!" is the perfect bronzer. We use it to contour our eyes, nose, lips, and entire face. The color is great for sun-kissed summer skin. The name of this bronzer is so fitting because you literally look like you just spent a day in the sun.


Buxom Full-On Lip Polish in the color "Kristen" is amazing!  We are obsessed. This lip gloss includes a lip plumper. As soon as you put it on, you feel your lips start to tingle. It's super hydrating and makes your lips bigger. The color Kristen is a subtle pink color which is perfect for summer.


Butter London Glazen Eye Gloss in the color "Bronzed" is a light shimmer eye shadow that looks great out in the sun. When the sun catches the eye shadow, your eyes pop! It's also buildable, so you can apply the shadow very light or layer it on the eye lid for a more intense look. Because it is a cream shadow, you don't get fall out (when the shimmer particles fall on your eyelashes and under your eye throughout the day). This product stays on your lids all day long!


Laura Geller Baked Gelato Swirl Illuminator in the color "Gilded Honey" illuminates your skin. We love to pop it on the top of our cheek bones, the tip of our nose, and above our top lip in the cupid's bow for a beautiful glow. This is usually the last step when doing our makeup. It really does pull the whole look together!


The great thing about all of these products is they can also be used year round! A healthy, vibrant glow will never go out of style. Every product listed above can be purchased at Ulta except for the MAC bronzer (this can be purchased at Sephora). They are also all available online. Below is a picture of my sister and me using the above products. We hope you love them as much as we do!
