How To Master Summer’s No-Makeup Makeup Look
Posted on May 25 2022
We think summer looks best with fresh, glowy skin—enter the ever popular no-makeup makeup trend. Whether you’re taking a warm weather vacation or just want to simplify your routine for the sunnier months, we’re breaking down how to achieve the coveted vibe below. And spoiler alert, it’s all about a heightened focus on radiant skin.
Arguably the most important step to the no-makeup makeup look? Devoting your energy to a serious skin care routine. Make sure to gently exfoliate your skin (1-2 times a week) with our Gentle Exfoliator to clear away dead skin cells, excess oil, and refine surface texture. Follow it up with our Hydrating Mask to hydrate and soothe your skin. Go through the rest of your skin care routine, and finish it off by applying a layer of our Mineral Sunscreen to protect your complexion.
Once your skin is set, add makeup. We like to start with our Face Primer for a slightly dewy look that will keep any products you apply in place. If you have dark circles, redness or a breakout, pass on foundation and instead spot-treat with concealer—dab it on the spots you want to cover and softly pat it into your skin. After everything is even, reach for a cream blush—like our Multi Pot in Peony or Magnolia (or combine them both!)—and use it as a blush and pseudo bronzer. Add color where the sun would naturally kiss your face—on your cheekbones, bridge of nose, arch of the brow, and cupid’s bow. For a little more color and definition swipe on our velvety smooth Mineral Bronzer and for more glow apply our Mineral Highlighter. Define your eyes by adding two coats of mascara in either black or brown depending on your preference, and use our Cream Brow Pencil and Luxe Mascara in Clear to naturally enhance and comb up your brows. Add a touch of gloss or color to your lips—you can use our Sheer Gloss in Crystal, our Lipstick in Taupe or the same Multi Pot shade you used on the rest of your face depending on the look you’re going for. Set your look with our Mosaic Illuminator and a few spritzes of our Sea Mineral Hydra Mist, and you’re good to go.
Voilà, an effortless look with a minimal amount of effort.
