As much as I LOVE makeup, there’s nothing worse than feeling like your face is melting off the minute you step outside into the summer heat! lol
Each season I find myself switching up my makeup regimen, and the “no makeup” makeup look has been my go to this summer. It feels so light and natural but still really feminine! Here are some quick tips if you’d like to recreate this look:
EYES: For this look, eye shadow is optional but isn’t necessary. I wanted to brighten up my eyes so I swept a matte cream color along my lids and up to my brow bone. Avoid anything shimmery or pigmented. I applied a thin coat of waterproof mascara because I think it lasts SO much longer when it’s hot outside! My favorite waterproof mascara is, by far, “Cannonball” by Urban Decay. And lastly, the brows. Anastasia Beverly Hills Dip Brow Pomade was a total game changer for me–I can’t live without it!! haha 😀 I use the color “Auburn” to shape and fill in my brows.Finishing up, I swept a little bit of translucent powder on my eyebrows; this not only set my makeup, but it also helped soften the look of my brows so they look more natural.
LIPS: Whenever I’m keeping my makeup simple, I always opt for a muted pink or nude shade. You know the way your lips look after you eat a Popsicle? That’s kinda the look we’re going for 🙂 Some of my favorite lipstick choices for a natural look are NYX soft matte lip cream in “Stockholm” , Mac Cosmetics satin lipstick in “Brave” and Aveda’s Nourishment Lipstick in “Sheer Clover.”
FACE: In the summertime, I never like to wear anything too heavy or “cakey” on my face. Instead, I go for a BB cream or tinted moisturizer. I really love Aveda’s tinted SPF because it’s very light and dewey, but buildable. I always apply it with a beauty blending sponge to get more coverage! To set my makeup so it lasts all day, I dust a light layer of Tarte’s translucent powder all over my face. It’s seriously my favorite powder ever, it instantly gives you angel skin ❤
Finally, I apply a little bit of blush to add some color to my skin. I always feel like blush makes my skin look so much healthier and brighter! One of my favorite every-day shades is “Baby Love” by Too Faced because it’s super subtle and goes with any look!
And there you have it!! That’s everything I used for this “no makeup” look! 😉 I hope this post was helpful for these hot summer days ahead!! Thanks so much for reading!
