Summer Makeup Products for a Natural Look

Summer is upon us, which means it’s the season of iced coffees, outdoor restaurants, pool trips, and lazy days spent tanning on the front lawn. While there are many perks of summer, being trapped doing 12 hours shifts in the heat is not one. It’s almost impossible to find an easy-makeup look that lasts on a normal day, but finding one that can last through the humidity and sweat? Oh, man. Luckily, we’re here to share our favorite products for an easy look that will take you all the way to Fall.

Supergoop GlowScreen

Supergoop GlowScreen is our must-have for those days where you just don’t feel like putting on any makeup. It’s all-natural, so you don’t have to worry about putting harmful chemicals on your skin. It has SPF 30 and shields from those harmful UVA and UVB rays. The sunscreen not only protects your skin, but it has a custom-made formula to leave your skin looking hydrated and glowy (but not oily). It is made from hyaluronic acid with B5 to leave the skin moisturized and firm and has niacinamide to soften and tighten pores. As if that isn’t enough, the sea lavender in the formula leaves your skin smelling great!

Can’t Stop Won’t Stop Full Coverage Foundation

Made by NYX Professional Makeup, this foundation is perfect for when you’re having a pesky break-out or just want to even out your skin tone. The foundation is waterproof to resist any sweat or humidity and comes in 43 shades. It has matte coverage and is heavily pigmented to provide even and full coverage. It’s also noncomedogenic, which means it is made in a way that resists clogging pores and causing irritation. NYX claims this foundation is great for sensitive skin and can be used on normal, oily, and dry complexions.

Soap Brows

If you follow TikTok trends or are interested in beauty, you’ve likely seen “soap brows” hit the scene. The idea behind this is that if you take a lash wand and rub it on bar soap, you can use it essentially as a gel to create a thick and casual brown look. West Barn Co. took this trend and tweaked it a little to create a perfect brow product. Their product, Soap Brows, comes as a soap-like product eco-friendly tin. They infused glycerin and coconut butter into their gel to help strengthen brow hair while keeping it moisturized. Plus – unlike actual soap – this formula is curated to last all day! Pair it with a light sunscreen and lip tint for a casual look that lasts all day.

Better than Sex Waterproof Mascara

This is for the days you feel like being a little bit glam. We all know those times when you just want to feel and look your best, and having a great volumizing mascara can be just the thing you need. Better Than Sex waterproof mascara helps create dark, thick lashes that won’t smudge or rub off when you touch your eyes. Plus, the waterproof formula is resistant to sweat and heat, so your glam will last all day in the summer heat.


Roller Liner Matte Liquid Eyeliner

Benefit Cosmetics created a great, easy-to-apply liquid eyeliner and it’s called the Roller Liner. Eyeliner can be a great makeup tool, lifting the eyes and helping to give you that cat-eye look. However, working all day with eyeliner can lead to unwanted smudging and have you going home with a racoon-ish look. The Roller Liner is specially crafted to be waterproof and last all day, which makes it a great addition to your summer makeup line-up. It comes in both brown and black, so you can go with a dramatic cat-eye or a more under-the-radar look. 

Blinc Mascara

Blinc Mascara is truly a feat of engineering. This mascara is all about enhancing your natural lashes and helping protect them from damage. Blinc mascara uses technology to create tubes that go around your eyelashes and help amplify your natural shape and volume. Because the tubes bond to your eyelashes, they don’t smudge, clump, or flake either. And when you’re ready to take your makeup off for the day, simply wash your face with warm water and you will see the tubes slighting into your hand! Say goodbye to smudges and clumpy lashes once and for all with this mascara.


Milk Makeup Highlighter

This highlighter comes in a creamy, roll-on stick and glides flawlessly over the skin for a natural shimmery glow. The formula is vegan and made with coconut, mango butter, and avocado oil to leave your skin hydrated and nourishes. This highlight can easily be rolled on one time for a casual look or built up to complement a more glam appearance. This highlighter is great on all skin types thanks to its natural ingredients and light application, and reviewers say one tube lasts them for years!


Versicolour Stain Lip Tint

This lip tint, created by MAC, is the perfect way to add a bit of color to your lips without turning to heavy lip glosses or lipstick. Available in many shades, this lip tint will stay all day and add a subtle glow to your appearance. Lipsticks and lip glosses can smudge and fade over the course of a working day, especially if your position requires you to wear masks on and off throughout your shift. The lip tint is the perfect alternative to have your lips feel plump, hydrated and tinted without worrying about smudging.


All Nighter Setting Spray

Urban Decay really knocked it out of the park with this one. This spray is lightweight, smells good, and locks in your makeup all day. Whether you are choosing to go with a light makeup look or you are rolling into work with a dramatic cat-eye, this product is a must-have so you can feel confident throughout your day that your look will stay in place. There’s a reason this product has thousands of great reviews, and it’s especially useful in the summer months.
