Achieve Your Summer Glow with the “No Makeup” Makeup Look

by Chanel Olmo

While the summer heat may bring tan lines and vitamin D, it is also well equipped with sweat and clogged pores. It’s important to take care of your skin with the right products and techniques so you can stay fresh faced all day long. Combat the heat by minimizing your everyday makeup routine and going for the “No Makeup” makeup look. It allows you to look polished and put together without having any inessential products melt off in the sun. Lisa show’s us girl bosses how to get the look right in her detailed tutorial featuring the following products.

Miracle Wipes

Primer is essential when wearing makeup, it serves as a barrier for you skin while increasing the staying power of your makeup in the summer sun.

Long-Wear Even Finish Compact Foundation

Lisa wears the shade Espresso in the tutorial and uses foundation to even out her skin tone. There’s nothing wrong with imperfections, but if you want to mask them, go for a foundation formula comparable to this compact that offers medium to full coverage.

Color Perfect Liquid Makeup

Lisa uses this Black Radiance foundation as a concealer to brighten her undereye area and highlight her forehead and chin. Using a foundation lighter than your skin tone instead of a concealer looks more natural and less cakey. 

MAC Mechanical Eyebrow Pencil

Full natural brows have been one of the hottest trends all year. They’re a classic look for any occasion and are essential for the “No Makeup” makeup look. When filling in your brows, using light feathery strokes will ensure you don’t over do it.

Lash Blast Volume Mascara

When picking the right mascara, chose a brown black instead of the blackest black to make your lashes more natural.

Adding blush to your routine is what makes the look fresh faced. Blush brings back the natural flush we already have but hide with our foundation.

Shimmer Brick Compact in Bronze

Now that we’re fresh faced, who doesn’t love a little glow? The question was rhetorical, having a nice glow looks healthy and adds to the polished look. When applying this product Lisa uses her fingers for a more natural finish.

When pulling off the natural “No Makeup” makeup look simplicity is key. Lisa does a great job of showing us how fast and effortless this makeup look can be. Some girl bosses may prefer the natural look, but others need a little flare. For those who enjoy the classic look but need to spice it up, false lashes are a great addition!

Laidoo Lashes in Diamond are a sure way to add that needed flare.
