TINTED MOISTURIZER FOR THE WIN!
Start your makeup routine with a boost of hydration! Use a hydrating face primer that helps diminish the look of pores and hydrate skin in one step.
Pro Tip: The good ol’ moisturizer with a bit of color to perfect an evened-out skin tone, contains hyaluronic acid to attract moisture and shea butter to help maintain hydration. The result: a great skin tone enhancing your natural look.
PRIME 'N PREP
Why should you add primer? A lot of primers will help out to smooth out your finishing makeup look so it doesn’t end up looking uneven and would blur spores while also illuminating your skin. Using a primer will give you the edge of mattifying your makeup as it seals your pores and prevents the oils of your skin to increase. Leaving you with oil-free and flawless skin. Almost all celebrity makeup artists swear by primers
KEEP AN ‘EYE’ OUT
Light under-eye concealers is your go-to! A multi-purpose full-coverage liquid concealer will do the trick. It will not only “hide it all” - from dark under-eye circles to blemishes and discoloration but also doesn’t cake, crack, or settle into fine lines.
Its formula includes algae-derived ingredients known for smoothing the look of skin, leaving it with a natural finish. No one’s going to guess you slept 5 hours. High five!
‘BROWS ON FLEEK’
Think of them as the first touch in perfecting the ‘no-makeup’ make-up look.
The best way to give your face a little lift is drawing in the top of your brows. Use an ash brown brow pencil instead of darker shades or better yet, use your hair color as a reference and go two tones lighter. Remember, our mission here is minimalism. For additional natural voluminous effect, use brow-volumizing tinted gel that is created with tiny microfibers that will leave your eyebrows with a natural-looking fullness and definition.
A tiny bit of blush will make a massive difference. However, you must be careful not to go overboard, since what ought to be a natural appearance may easily become a full-on face of extremely visible makeup. The key is to draw attention to the high planes on the face, such as the cheekbones which will give you a natural flush
LASHES NEED LOVE TOO!
Opt for a shade that resembles your hair color, again! Doesn’t have to be the same color but in the same shade range. Mascara is an excellent technique to make your eyes appear larger and more alert. A make-up must-have since it defines and expands the eyes over the lash line and under.
Your lips are an important indicator of your hydration routine. Apart from drinking water, apply a lip balm to keep your lips nice and hydrated. If you’d fancy a change of color, you can go for a nude or pink shade to complement that natural look.
NOW THAT YOU’VE MASTERED THIS LOOK, IT’S IMPORTANT TO REMEMBER THAT HEALTHY SKIN WILL TRANSFORM ANY LOOK!
TAKING CARE OF YOUR SKIN, EATING HEALTHY AND CONTROL YOUR SUGAR INTAKE WILL REFLECT ON YOUR OVERALL BODY AND SKIN’S GLOW. SUMMER IS A TEMPTATION GALORE, BUT BALANCE IS KEY, RIGHT NOW AND ALWAYS.
