Glam Glow Makeup Look for Summer + GIVEAWAY

Jordana glam glow drugstore makeup tutorial

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Walgreens. The opinions and text are all mine. 

Over the past several years, I’ve become a BIG fan of drugstore makeup.  Jordana recently challenged me to go to Walgreens with just $20 and create a new summer look.  So today I’m sharing a tutorial on how to create a glam glow makeup look that’s perfect for summer featuring items from Jordana at Walgreens! Highlighting is all the rage right now, and I’m showing how to incorporate this glow trend into a great face for summer.

First, after applying foundation, I like to do my eyebrows to give my face shape.  A skinny eyebrow pencil is perfect to use to give eyebrows more definition. I like a full look, and use tiny pencil strokes to achieve the perfect brows.  Here, I’m using the Jordana Quick Brow Micro Pencil in Dark Brown ($3.99) from Walgreens.  Be sure to brush through your brows with the spoolie once you’ve penciled them in for a more natural look.

Next, I utilized a pearlized highlighter as a multi-tasker. I applied it as an eyeshadow, and then used it as a highlighter on my cheekbones, down the center of my nose, and right in the dip of my upper lip. For this step, I used Jordana Glow and Go Creamy Strobe Stick in Pearl Glow ($4.99) from Walgreens.  Be sure to blend everything with your fingers after applying.

Then, for a dramatic effect, I applied a heavy line of black liquid eyeliner.  Make sure to extend it past the edge of your eye for a cat-eye look–just flick the applicator up a little at the outside corners. I used the Jordana Cat Eyeliner in Black Leather ($2.79) from Walgreens.

If you want to add a little more color to your face, you can add a bronzer in place of blush. I applied just a little to the apples of my cheeks.

Every glam look calls for a red lip, right?! For my look, I used Jordana Sweet Cream Matte Liquid Lip Color in Cherry Cobbler ($4.99) from Walgreens. I used the edge of the applicator to line my lips, and then filled them in with the broad side of the applicator.  This is a vibrant matte, and the best part is it tastes like a cherry popsicle!

Finish off the look with your favorite mascara.  I applied two coats, and made sure to coat both sides of my lashes for a thick lash look.

Ta-da! All finished. I love how easy this look is to create, and it still packs a punch! This would be the perfect date night makeup this summer. And most of all, everything is super affordable!
