Beauty lovers, it’s time to turn your home into your very own salon and get your glow ON! To help you create the look of all looks this season, we invited the super talented Samantha (@makeuobysamanthaharvey) to share her tips and tricks on creating a soft, summer glam makeup look using a range of must-have products available exclusively at Superdrug.
Glow getters reunite because you’re going to LOVE recreating this look at home! Follow along with the tutorial below and read on to find out more about some of Sam’s chosen products. Trust us, you’ll want to add them all to your basket!
Get the Look:
Sam’s beginner-friendly look is all about achieving a super healthy, glowy look with total ‘fun in the sun’ vibes that anyone can try at home.
As with any makeup look, the key to gorgeous, flawless application is to prep the skin. Sam gets stuck straight in with the B. Prep & Set Mist, followed by the Me+ Hyaluronic Acid - a gold standard of skin hydrating ingredients! If you're looking for something to keep your skin protected, you could also try the Me+ Antioxidant SPF Booster which will guard skin against damage caused by pollution, free radicals and sun rays.
Strong Brow Game
If you were following along closely, you’d have seen Sam gave you a sneak peek into a new and exciting launch coming from Missguided - their Come @ Me Brow Balm! Giving you that at-home laminated effect, it’s a must-have for ultimate brow goals.
Brush up your brows to create shape and definition and leave them to set for a moment or two. Once you have finished more of your look, come back with the B. Brow Styler and use hair-like strokes to carve out your brow shape.
Boss Your Base
We told you Sam would be sharing her tips and tricks, and she certainly didn’t disappoint! Using the B. Filter Foundation in shade 13, Sam pops the formula onto the back of her hand and using a B. foundation brush, she works from the inside of her face outwards.
Sam’s Top Tip: Don’t push the foundation into your skin, take your time to blend to create a ‘your skin, but better!’ effect.
Fresh Looking Blush
Sam’s favourite blush formula is liquid, and we can see why! Using the natural-looking B. Liquid Blush in Apricot, she stipples it onto her cheeks, instead of using a circular motion, to build up a soft sun-kissed glow. Liquid blush is an outstanding multi-tasking product, so if you have any left on the back of your hand, apply it to the inner corner of your eye for a light wash of colour.
Part of Sam’s stunning eye look is created using half faux lashes. Yes, just half lashes! Simply cut them in half, hold them tight with a tweezer, coat the strip with glue and let it dry for a moment before popping them onto the outer corner of the eye.
Sam’s Top Tips: once attached, pinch the lashes, so they blend seamlessly with your natural lashes.
For a super cute finish to this sensational summery look, Sam uses the Missguided Frecks Appeal Freckle Pen to bring out, and enhance, some of her natural freckles. Do you need freckles to start with to use this pen? Absolutely not! Use the pen to draw playful-looking freckles across the nose, and pat them in with your finger.
Finish your look with an extra spritz of the B. Prep & Set Mist, and you're all set to GLOW!
