Ditch the full face of glam and work your ways to keep things limited to neutral

Summer Makeup Look Step-by-Step

The key to nailing the perfect summer makeup look is understanding the steps that lead to a flawless finish. A step-by-step face and eye makeup for summer guide ensures that you not only achieve the desired look but also maintain the health and glow of your skin beneath the makeup.

Step 1: Create A Minimal Base


Summer calls for a light touch. The first step to any professional or simple summer makeup look starts with a minimal base. Begin with a moisturiser that has SPF to protect your skin from the harsh sun. Opt for a tinted moisturiser or a BB cream over a heavy foundation for a sheer and more natural look. These products even out your skin tone without masking your natural beauty. Use a lightweight concealer for any blemishes or under-eye circles, ensuring you choose a shade that blends seamlessly with your skin. The aim is to create a base that feels like your skin but better, light, non-cakey and locks in makeup for longer hours.

The Total Makeover FF Cream Light by MyGlamm:

The Total Makeover FF Cream Light by MyGlamm is a game-changer for creating that perfect minimal base. Its versatile formula combines foundation, primer, and concealer in one, providing a flawless finish without the weight. Ideal for those who favour a simple yet effective approach to their makeup routine.

MyGlamm Super Serum Foundation

Another brilliant option for the summer months is the MyGlamm Super Serum Foundation. Its lightweight texture glides on the skin, offering medium coverage with a luminous finish. Infused with hydrating ingredients, it feels like a second skin, perfect for those long, sunny days.

Manish Malhotra Skin Awakening Concealer

Use a concealer like the Manish Malhotra Skin Awakening Concealer for any spots or under-eye circles. This concealer offers buildable coverage that brightens and energises the skin, making it a perfect choice for achieving a flawless base without the weight of a full-coverage foundation.

Step 2: Add Colour And Shine


Summer is synonymous with colour and vibrancy. Infuse life into your summer makeup look by incorporating blushes in peach or coral hues that mimic a natural sun-kissed glow. Highlighters are also your best friend during the summer months. A dab on the high points of your face - cheekbones, brow bones, the bridge of your nose, and Cupid's bow - can elevate your look, giving you that sought-after radiant complexion. Remember, the goal is to look luminous, not shiny, so go easy on the highlighter.

MyGlamm Recommends:

The Manish Malhotra Blush & Highlighter Duo

The Manish Malhotra Blush & Highlighter Duo in Stellar Spell by MyGlamm brings the perfect combo of colour and luminosity to your cheeks. Its finely milled powder blends seamlessly, offering a natural flush of colour paired with a radiant highlight that catches the light beautifully.

MyGlamm Spotlight Illuminating Liquid

For an all-over sun-kissed glow, the Spotlight Sunkissed Highlighter is your go-to. This liquid highlighter can be mixed with your foundation for an all-over radiance or applied to the high points of your face for a concentrated glow.

Step 3: Choose simplicity for the eyes


When it comes to eye makeup for summer, less is more. A wash of a single, light eyeshadow can brighten the eyes without looking overdone. Choose shades in soft pinks, warm golds, or earthy tones to enhance your natural eye colour. Waterproof mascara is a must to avoid any smudges from humidity or an impromptu dip in the pool. For a bit of definition, lightly line your upper lash line with brown or black eyeliner, keeping the line as thin as possible.

MyGlamm Recommends:

The Manish Malhotra 9-in-1 Eyeshadow Palette

The Manish Malhotra 9-in-1 Eyeshadow Palette in Enchant offers a range of summer-friendly shades that can be mixed and matched to create an array of looks from the most subtle to the more dramatic. Its pigmented, blendable formula makes it a staple in any summer beauty kit.

LIT Glossy Liquid Eyeliner in Black Party by MyGlamm

For those who love a defined eye, the LIT Glossy Liquid Eyeliner in Black Party by MyGlamm provides a sleek, glossy finish that withstands the summer heat, ensuring your eyes remain the focal point all day long.

Manish Malhotra Mascara

For voluminous, lifted lashes that last, this mascara is your go-to. Its formula ensures clump-free application, giving you beautifully defined lashes.

MyGlamm Super Kohl Long Stay Kajal

This kajal offers intense pigmentation and incredible staying power, perfect for defining the eyes softly or creating dramatic looks that last.

Step 4: Swap creamy lipsticks with matte ones


While creamy lipsticks have their charm during the colder months, matte lipsticks take the spotlight in summer. They're long-lasting and less likely to smudge, making them perfect for an ideal summer makeup look in warm weather. Opt for bright shades like pink, corals, or bold red to make a statement. If matte lipsticks feel too dry, prep your lips with a hydrating lip balm before application. This way, you get the matte finish without compromising on comfort.

MyGlamm Recommends:

The LIT Liquid Matte Lipstick Slow Fade

The LIT Liquid Matte Lipstick Slow Fade is a stunning choice for summer, providing an intense colour payoff with a comfortable matte finish that lasts through meals and drinks.

Pink Flush Summer Makeup Look



Going all pink is the perfect way to add freshness to your summer makeup look. Fresh pink will cheer up your entire face if you're feeling a little dull after staying indoors for a year. To keep the look from looking way too sweet, apply the same baby pink tone to your eyes and cheeks, then line your lips with a darker brown.

Hyaluronic filled spheres and silicon butter are at the heart of this unique composition, hence it smoothes and moisturises lips. Producing a silky smooth matte finish that never feels dry, your pout will be the ultimate date night accessory.


Soft Peach Summer Makeup Look



With a wash of gold shadow and a peach lip, you can't go wrong. This is your beach-to-dinner summer makeup look that’ll win a lot of hearts for sure!

Only this blush can take you from cheek to chic in a buff or two. This mattifying blush is infused with delicious fruity flavours and gives you that healthy, flushed look.

Glossy Lids Summer Makeup Look



Because your eye shadow will almost certainly crease, you might as well embrace it with a glossy finish summer makeup look!

And a true head-turner knows she's onto a winner with MyGlamm's Manish Malhotra Hi-Shine Lipsticks. Intense colours and smooth, glossy textures give your lips a new depth. Like creamy butter, your new pout favourite slides across your lips.

Soft Smoked Summer Makeup Look


When it comes down to it, a classic soft smoked eye makeup for summer can never go wrong. Smokey eyes, neutral lips, and peachy blush give you a polished look without being overdone.

There are three matte shades and one shimmer shade in this compact eyeshadow palette: a medium nude matte, a deep brown matte, and a matte black & a golden-bronze shimmer. This small eyeshadow palette is ideal for amateurs as well as professional cosmetic artists who are always on the go. This formula is simple to use and highly pigmented, providing a rich colour payoff in just one swipe.

Terra-Cotta Vibes Makeup Look For Summer


With a warm terra-cotta smokey eye, embrace the summer vibes. This summer eyeshadow look is really gorgeous and so simple to put together. Smudge a liquid shadow around your top and bottom lash lines with your finger or blend it with a brush.

Terracotta is an orangish brown colour with a soft chiselled appearance. This bronzer combination blurs blemishes and provides natural-looking contours with a radiant, high definition, matte finish. It is lightweight, long-lasting, and easy to blend.


Dew All Day Makeup Look For Summer


Embrace glistening skin if you favour natural summer makeup looks (you might as well lean into the perspiration, right?). Use a dewy base of glowing foundation and concealer, as seen above, and a touch of slightly glittery gold eyeshadow on her lids to keep the shine continuing.

Two luxurious artisanal skincare products will revive and renew your skin. For an overnight glow, combine the restorative effects of the Cinnamon Night Gel with the super relaxing and healing Rose Lip Moisturising Gel.


Neon Magic Makeup Look For Summer


Nothing quite says summer 2024 like a mix of rave-y brights. This neon summer eyeshadow looks as refreshing as a chilled margarita. It carries exactly the proper amount of oomph when used as a graphic liner instead of all over the lid.

Wear one hue at a time or mix and match for a colourful burst! The LIT Nail Enamels promise a long-lasting wear time, providing endless evenings of fun with your digits.


Orange Lips


Another bright and unusual lip colour? Orange hue. This makeup idea for summer screams summer when paired with gold shadow.

Perfect Curves by MyGlamm is an expertly designed range of hydrating creamy matte lipsticks. These fun pencils provide you long-lasting lipstick and liner. Soleil is a vibrant orange-peach colour. It's also cruelty-free and vegan, according to PETA.


Soft Purple


Stick to warmer tones like this muted purple, plum and brown combination for a gentle summer makeup look. It's the perfect casual weekend appearance when paired with a white T-shirt and jean shorts.

Make a statement with eyeliners that play, flirt, and crush hearts. When you have this wicked matte eyeliner (it is an aubergine purple shade), who needs commitment? MyGlamm's LIT Matte Eyeliner Pencils are with a vegetable wax derived from the berry kernels of the Japanese Cherry Blossom tree.


“Glazed Donut” Skin



Expect to see more fashion-forward (but still natural-looking) summer makeup look as liquid and cream formulas continue to dominate the beauty space. A shimmering sheen has never been more trendy, whether it's because of highlighter, skincare, or, well, sweat.

This bright cream will make you glow every day. MyGlamm's GLOW Iridescent Brightening Moisturising Cream features a hydro crystal complex system that locks in moisture for soft, younger-looking skin. Rosehip oil contains potent vitamins and antioxidants that help to heal and build the skin.



Power Of Matte Summer Makeup Look For Oily Skin


Before painting the face with the bright cheery hue, remember oily skin peeps need that TLC. Mattifying an oily skin is very important before you start with your base because the primer helps makeup last through brunch. So gear up to ace your summer makeup look with no regrets.

Tinted Perfection Face Primer by MyGlamm is a multi-action balmy product that tackles visible pores, uneven skin texture, and excess oil in an instant. It reduces shine for a healthy-looking finish and creates a silky-smooth canvas for makeup application. The texture is light and faintly tinted to lend that dewy, youthful appearance.

Glazed lips



One of the quintessential summer makeup looks revolves around achieving the perfect glazed lips. This trend is about creating a juicy, hydrated pout that looks like you've just bitten into a fresh piece of fruit. The key is to keep the rest of your makeup toned down to let your glazed lips take centre stage.

Fluffy brows


Fluffy brows have taken the beauty world by storm, and they're a perfect match for summer makeup looks. This trend focuses on creating natural, textured brows that frame your face beautifully. Fluffy brows pair wonderfully with minimalistic eye makeup, allowing your natural beauty to shine through.

Sunset eyeshadow


Sunset summer eyeshadow look is a summer staple, inspired by the breathtaking hues of the evening sky. This look typically involves blending eyeshadow shades that mimic a sunset – think vibrant oranges, warm pinks, and sultry purples. Finish off with a couple of coats of mascara to add definition and volume to your lashes.



Q. Which type of makeup is best in summer?

A. We highly recommend that everyone must opt for an airbrush makeup look instead of a regular makeup to keep themselves fresh and flawless throughout. It's long-lasting, waterproof, lightweight, and suitable for all weather conditions, especially during sultry summers.


Q. How to do your makeup for Summer?

A. First things first, start with the right moisturiser. Then layer on sun protection followed by a primer. Make sure you go less on makeup because “Less Is More.” And, then add a sheer or nude shade to your eyelids by ditching the shimmer eyeshadows.
