When it comes to summer beauty, it doesn’t get more timeless than healthy skin, a sun-kissed glow, and natural-looking makeup. Ever inspired by all things classic, I’m drawn to a glowing, minimal look each and every summer. Since I’m still keeping my outings to a minimum in this season, I turned to Nordstrom’s online beauty department to help me achieve my go-to summer look. I’ve found many of my favorite beauty brands over the years at Nordstrom–they have one of the best selections, and you can’t beat their free shopping and returns, Nordy Club membership perks, or curbside pick-up options.
No matter how many products I apply, nothing has more impact on my overall look than healthy skin, so a summer glow always starts with good skincare. Sunscreen, like this unique sun drops serum, is key to protecting against sun damage, so I am diligent about wearing it daily. I also rely on hydrating face masks to keep my dry skin well-nourished, and eye creams to combat dark circles. With a clean, healthy base, I’m ready for products like a light makeup with SPF, bronzer and highlighter, strategically applied for a natural, sun-kissed look.
My days of lying in the sun sans SPF are long over, but I still love a lightly bronzed look this time of year. There is a wide variety of ways to achieve this, from the traditional self-tanner lotion, to serums or mousses. To add even more smoothness and radiance, I reach for a body oil. This one has a touch of shimmer, perfect for summer evenings, while this one has a feminine, tropical scent.
