Today marks the summer solstice, meaning summer is officially here! Get ready for longer days, more sun and new summer makeup tips. Summer makeup routines are all about bronze, glowy, long lasting makeup (to withstand the summer sun!). We’re here to share five steps that teach you how to apply our long lasting makeup products to achieve a soft, glowy makeup look just in time for summer solstice.

Long Lasting Beauty Makeup Look


Step 1: Add a Veil of Bronze

Using our Bronzer Stick, swipe the cream-gel formula along the natural hollows of your cheekbones, top of your forehead, and along your jawline to give your skin a veil of matte bronze. This bronzer stick leaves skin looking gorgeous and glowing, like you stepped fresh off a sailboat. This bronzer makeup is also buildable, so apply as much as you want/need for your desired look! Flip the crayon over to reveal the stick's built-in contouring brush! Using the contour brush, smooth and blend the formula for a natural makeup look.

Step 2: Highlight Your Features

Apply our Highlight Stick to the along the top of your cheekbones to your brow bone making a ‘C’ shape and also the bridge of your nose for a sun-kissed glow. This cruelty free highlighter brightens and accentuates the features with subtle shimmer—no glitter, no sparkle! Use the highlighter makeup sponge on the other end of our vegan highlighter to blend out the edges.

Step 3: Fill In Your Brow 

Begin to define your eyes with our cruelty-free Brow Pencil. Using a gentle hand, apply the pencil in short strokes to fill in the sparse areas of your eyebrows and extend the tail. Set your brow hairs into place with the flexible-hold tinted gel on the other end of the brow pencil.

Step 4: Subtly Define Your Eyes

Using our long lasting, 16-hr eye pencil makeup, draw lines close to your upper lash line. Then use the smudger on the opposite end to blend out for a more subtle makeup look.

Step 5: Add Some Shimmer

Our Shadow Crayon in Morimoto Shimmer or Venetian Shimmer are the perfect shades for your summer makeup look. The silky smooth texture of these eyeshadow sticks glides on effortlessly without creasing (no primer necessary) and locks onto lids for a long wear time. You only need one swipe of our shadow sticks to give you glowy, shimmering color. Use the built-in eyeshadow brush to shape and blend.

Step 6: Keep your Lips Moisturized 

Though we are all wearing masks for the foreseeable future, you can still use our Lip Glaze to keep your lips soft and hydrated! Your lips still need some love and our Lip Glaze’s unique balmy formula with subtle, lasting stain pigments is the only summer lip product you need.
