Glow all summer long with these non-foundation products for lit from within skin.

As much as MIRA BEAUTY loves foundation, it’s not always the top summer makeup essential. The heat and humidity can make it feel too heavy or (gasp) melt it right off your face, and going makeup-free isn’t always an option. But there are plenty of products to give you glowing skin this summer - no foundation required. From literal drops of radiance to beloved BB cream, here are our top 5 picks for foundation-free and glowing skin this season.

Rainforest Of The Sea Radiance Drops by Tarte, $32

Just like most things that Tarte does, these drops of radiance are basically perfection. Made with coconut oil, vitamin E, and jojoba oil, you can add a few drops to your skin during the day for a pearlescent shine that’s noticeable but not too extra, or add them to your foundation or lipstick at night for that summer glow.

Camera Ready BB Cream by Smashbox, $43

Think of this BB cream as the perfect blend of foundation and tinted moisturizer, with sheer to medium coverage and a dewy, demi-matte finish, ideal for glowing skin on warm summer nights. And did we mention it also has SPF protection?

Potent-C Power Serum by Peter Thomas Roth, $99

Most skincare junkies know the power of Vitamin C and glowing skin. But what if we told you that this serum contained THD ascorbate, an ingredient that’s fifty times more powerful than traditional Vitamin C? Because it does. While this formula is on the pricier side, it’s ultra-nourishing, anti-aging, and will make your skin look brighter than ever before.

Glowstarter Mega Illuminating Moisturizer by Glamglow, $50

Yes, summer means more beach trips and a better playlist… but it also means that it’s time for a new moisturizer. Upgrade your skincare routine with the Glowstarter Mega Illuminating Moisturizer by Glamglow - the brand you can always count on for a boost of radiance and glowing skin.


True Match Lumi Glotion Natural Glow Enhancer by L’Oreal, $16

This L’Oreal favorite is exactly what it sounds like - part lotion, part highlighter, and we love it. Wear it alone for a boost of hydration and natural glow, or apply over powder or foundation for a flawless finish.
