Summer is (almost) officially here and we’re ready to get outside and enjoy the warm weather. Here at Glo, we’ve waited months for the sun to shine and have counted down the days until our first official summer event. Whether that’s a Memorial Day BBQ, Independence Day soirée or a Labor Day camping trip, we have the perfect products to get you ready for any summer occasion in 15 minutes or less.
Set the Scene - Everyone loves a backyard BBQ- from the grilled foods and cold drinks to the great friends and unforgettable memories, there’s no better feeling than basking in the sun (with ample SPF), pretending Monday doesn’t actually exist.
What to Wear - Your summer uniform of jean shorts, a bright top and your favorite sandals that seem to get better with age. Pair it with an oversized hat and sunnies for the ultimate fashionable yet functional ensemble.
Let’s Talk Makeup - There’s no need to put too much thought into this look, go with what you know and keep it simple.
Oil Free SPF 40+: Apply 15 minutes before leaving the house. Make sure to use a nickel-sized amount to completely cover your face, neck and ears.
Pressed Base: Use a fluffy brush to achieve light coverage. Enough to keep your concealer in the drawer but not too much that you feel overdone.
Cream Blush (Firstlove): Not only is this formula ideal for outdoor events (thanks to the lasting power of Kaolin Clay), the shade is perfect for giving a subtle touch of berry to both the cheeks and lips.
Festive Summer Cocktail Hour
Set the Scene - You’ve spent all day lounging by the pool but now it’s time to get ready for dinner. You’ll want something that’s elevated and chic but also easy to throw on, so that you can leave the party and head straight to watch the fireworks without needing to change.
What to Wear - Your favorite flowy dress, layered bangles and a silk scarf in your hair. Watch as everyone else marvels at how you managed to look so put together in so little time.
Cream Stay Shadow Stick: Use a lighter shade like Beam or Prelude for a soft hint of color, or create a summer version of the classic smokey eye with a bronze metallic like Keepsake or Echo.
Suede Matte Crayon (Bombshell): The most universally flattering blue-red in a hydrating yet long lasting matte formula, perfect for showing your patriotic side.
Luminous Setting Powder: Set your look with an effortlessly dewy finish so you can feel confident leaving your touch up kit at home.
Set the Scene - You’re outside and little to no makeup is required but you still want to wear something, just in case you take any pictures.
What to Wear - Let comfort and functionality take the lead on this one- light layers that can easily be removed and sneakers that won’t let you down.
Let’s Talk Beauty - If you’re someone who always wears makeup but knows a full face of foundation won’t last, this look will be perfect for you. It’s quick, easy and will last through most outdoor activities.
Moisturizing Tint SPF 30+: Tinted moisturizers are great for outdoor activities because they allow you to protect your skin without sacrificing makeup.
Water Resistant Mascara: If you’re sweating, there’s a high chance your mascara is running. Tackle that issue easily by using a water resistant formula.
Contour Kit: This may seem like it’ll take too long, but hear us out- this palette serves as the perfect all-in-one bronzer and eye shadow kit, so you can do as much or as little as you want (or have time for).
