Don’t wake up with bright eyes, delicately flushed cheeks, and naturally dewy skin? You’re not alone. Enter no-makeup makeup. It’s the perfect way to keep your beauty routine low-key during the warmest months of the year—because no one wants to look like they have gobs of product melting off their face.
Master the no-makeup makeup look by following the steps below.
- Skip Foundation
Forego foundation altogether and instead apply a lightweight moisturizer (try our Seaweed Nourishing Moisturizer
). If you feel the need, use a Color Correcting Primer
to even out your skin tone.
- Conceal Lightly
You don’t have to have perfect skin to pull of this look—enlist a lightweight and hydrating Concealer
and apply it in a triangle beneath your eyes, around the edges of your nose, across your chin, and on any other blemishes you want to hide.
- Use Cream Eyeshadow and Blush
Choose a buildable shade (like our Multi Pot
) that’s close to your own skin tone. Softly blend it on your eyelids and the apples of your cheeks using your finger for a natural-looking flush of color.
- Highlight, Highlight, Highlight
Add a touch of glow to your cheekbones with our Liquid Radiance Highlighter
or Cream Highlighter
. If you prefer more illumination, tap it on the bridge of your nose, along your brow bones, and above your lips.
- Groom Your Brows
Brush your brows up and away from your face using our clear Mascara
—the fuller they look, the better.
- Gently Apply Mascara
Add a coat or two of black Mascara
to your top lashes only for a softer appearance.
- Tint Your Lips
Give your lips a tint of color to naturally accent your pucker. Enlist the same Multi Pot
you used on your eyes and cheeks, and dab it on lightly using your finger.
