Shine on, diamonds.

Shine on, diamonds.

Glistening skin in the summertime isn’t always a choice—sometimes you get that dewy look after running to catch a bus or otherwise venturing into sweaty territory. Nonetheless, I’m ready to get into the spirit of shine. Here’s how you can get a natural-looking glow with supplies you probably already have at home. You won’t even have to break a sweat!

What you’ll need:

  • Clear lip gloss or coconut oil—that’s it!

How to do it:

Step One

Start with whatever makeup look you like best—including no makeup. I put on my eye makeup, then powdered my face and was ready to go.

Step Two


I chose clear lip gloss to add my shine; however, if you have sensitivity to gloss, coconut oil also works just fine. Dab oil or gloss on your cheekbones at their very highest points, then blend. The texture of the gloss/oil will mimic your skin’s natural moisture.

Step Three


I also applied a little lip gloss to my upper eyelids, for an all-over glow.


All finished! Even in the sun, you’ll be shining on your own terms. ♦
