The days are longer, the sun is stronger, and you’re often moving from one extreme temperature to another. Summer is full of wonder – but melting makeup, smeared eyeliner, and super-sticky lipstick is not among them. So here’s an easy everyday summer makeup look 2020 you must try even when the weather is working against you.
Here are the steps to achieving this everyday Summer Makeup Look 2020
Step 1: Apply Moisturizer
Taking care of your skin is just as important as the makeup you apply to it. The first step to achieving a flawless base is to apply a good moisturizer. As this is a summer makeup look, it is better to use an oil-free moisturizer.
Massage it gently and evenly all over your face. Don’t forget your eyelids, lips and nose. Let it sit on your skin for a few minutes before you move on to apply makeup.
Step 2: Prime It!
You won’t regret the few seconds it takes to apply a primer, which goes on after moisturizer but before makeup. Primers are definitely the way to go in summer.
It helps your makeup to glide on smoothly and blend easily. Plus, it doesn’t rub off. Primer gives your makeup something to hold onto, helping it last much longer. Let it absorb into your skin as putting makeup on your skin while it is still wet or sticky, will result in a mess. I have used my favourite Smashbox Photo Finish Primerizer for this summer makeup look 2020.
Step 3: Conceal Em Circles
Summer calls for a light coverage concealer as humidity and heat can cause cakiness. I’ve used the LA Girl Pro Conceal in the shade- Pure beige to achieve this summer makeup look 2020. Instead of putting foundation all over your face directly- you can take a concealer very close to your skin tone to combat the darkness under your eyes. You can apply it generously and build it up later as well.
Blend and push the product nicely into your skin using a beauty blender and cover all the dark or uneven areas on your skin.
Step 4: A Strong Foundation Goes A Long Way
Apply a foundation that matches your skin tone as well as your skin type. I’ve used Maybelline Super Stay Full Coverage Foundation in the shade-112.
Take the slightest amount of foundation and blend it with the same beauty blender.
Always make sure that your foundation doesn’t clump anywhere. Avoid applying too much on your blemishes, it will only make them stand out more.
Step 6: A Lil Loose Powder Hurt No One
Makeup likes to move around when it’s hot. Whether you have dry skin or oily skin, it is very important to set your face with a loose powder. I’ve used Maybelline Fit Me Loose Powder in the shade-15 for this summer makeup look 2020.
With the help of the same beauty blender- apply it under your eyes evenly to set your concealer. Also, use the rest of the powder on your beauty blender to set your entire face.
Step 7: Oh You Make Me Blush
I am OBSESSED with applying blush! It is definitely a must-have makeup bag essential. Blush adds balance and healthiness to any look. Choose a pink-toned blush that brings out the best in your facial colouring.
The best way to apply blush is to smile and swirl it on the apples of your cheeks in a circular motion. I would highly recommend a powder blush in summers. I’ve used Flower Beauty Flower Pots Powder Blush in the shade – Sweet Pea to achieve this glowy summer makeup look 2020.
Step 8: Apply Eyeshadow
Choose a neutral shade for a simple, everyday look. Use your finger or an eyeshadow brush to apply a light brown colour on your lid and glide the tip of it in a back and forth motions on your skin till there are no harsh lines left. Make sure to tap the excess too, as we don’t want to apply too much product on our eyes. To create this easy everyday summer makeup look 2020, I’m using Sugar Mini Bronzer- 02, Woody Wonder.
Step 9: With The Right Brows You Can Conquer The World!
The most underappreciated and neglected feature on our faces sits front and centre, directly above our eyes. Do not underestimate the impact that these furry arches have on framing the face.
I’m using 2 in 1 Brow Pencil from Miniso in this summer makeup look 2020. Start with short, hair-like strokes to fill in brows. Then comb out (in the direction of hair growth) any excess product with the brush to achieve more of a natural look. Make sure to keep your pencil freshly sharpened to have a more pointed and focused stroke. Avoid being heavy-handed with the pencil, Natural is fine
Step 10: Wings Club
After years of practice, I am finally getting better at doing my makeup. Unfortunately, there is one thing I still mess up: my eyeliner. So I like to apply it as smudged as possible- and it looks so much better and natural.
I’m using the Blue Heaven Cosmetics Kajal Pencil to create this summer makeup look 2020 – it has a creamy texture and is easy to blend as well. It also has a sharpener at the bottom of the pencil, so would recommend to keep it sharpened- It will help you achieve a precise line.
Step 11: Make Those Eyes Pop Using A Mascara
With just a coat or two of mascara, you can completely change your look. Lash curlers and mascara go together like peanut butter and jelly. So, before applying mascara, I always curl my lashes. Apply one coat of mascara on both your upper and lower lashes. Insert the brush at the base of your lashes and sweep outward.
After you’re finished with one eye, dip the brush in the bottle again before applying mascara to the other eye. It’s kinda difficult not to get any on your skin during application. If you do happen to end up with smudges, wait until the mascara dries, and then gently wipe it away with a cotton swab. For this summer makeup look 2020 I am using Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara (It’s actually the best)
Step 12: Time To Go Kylie On Those Lips
Finish off this everyday summer makeup look 2020 with some lip gloss. Lip gloss has probably been one of my favourite cosmetics since I learned what makeup was. I love how the light reflects off the gloss and shimmer on my lips. It has the power to make your lips look plumper, softer, brighter and lusciously irresistible.
Plus, it’s super easy to put on wherever you are! You can make your gloss last longer by not rubbing your lips together. To create this super easy summer makeup look 2020, I’ve used Bobbi Brown Crushed Liquid Lip Colour, in the shade- Juicy Date.
Things To Keep In Mind When Trying To Achieve The Summer Makeup Look 2020
- When creating this summer makeup look 2020, avoid using any creamy products and highlighter as well. As the humidity will make you extra shiny and sweaty-looking if you have too much sparkle on your skin. Everyone loves a nice, dewy glow, but there’s a big difference between a healthy radiance and an over-the-top shine.
- Keep your summer makeup look 2020 very natural. Rich, deep colours have their place, but they can look heavy in summer. Switch to sheer versions of your go-to lip and eye colours.
- Avoid looking oily in a photo in summers by carrying blotting papers. It is a great way to wipe away the sweat and oil without piling on more product.
- Besides hydrating your skin, you also want to make sure your skin is properly protected from the sun — and that means wearing sunscreen every single day, even under your makeup.
Hope this summer makeup look 2020 idea brightened your day and did not allow the summer heat to bog you down. Do let me know if there are any looks that you would like me to do.
