A huge trend for spring and summer is the light, “no makeup” look. Luckily, this is easy to achieve and is great for those days where you want a little something on your face but do not want to spend forever on your makeup.
You Will Need:
- A matte bronzer
- Brow pencil or other brow product
- A nude lip color or clear lip balm
First, apply your foundation to even out your skin. If you often use a powdery foundation, for this look do not be afraid to skip it. You want your skin to look fresh and dewy for this look so if you do have to use powder, only dust it where you face may get oily.
Next, fill in your brows a tad thicker than you normally would. With this light look you need strong brows to create a nice “frame” for your face. Eyebrows are an easy way to define the face without looking like you are wearing any makeup.
To define your eyes, simply apply a little bit of bronzer to your eyelids for a hint of definition. Then all you need is a quick coat of mascara to really pull the look together.
Hint: If you want to add a little more to your eyes without making your makeup look visible, take a set of false eyelashes and cut them in half to make then ‘demi.’ Then you can place them on the outer half of your lashes to give volume and definition.
Next apply a light bronzer of your choice under your cheekbones, on your temples, across your forehead and down your nose. This will warm up and define your face without the use of harsh and visible colors. Then sweep the same light bronzer under your jaw and down your neck to blend everything together.
Hint: If you want an extra natural glow, take a light shimmery eye shadow and dust it over the tops of your cheekbones and down the bridge of your nose to give your skin the perfect glow.
To finish the look, all you need to do is apply your nude lip color or lip balm. This will add a bit of color and shine without overpowering your face.
And that is it! This easy look is perfect for warm days at the beach, a summer job or wherever your adventures take you when you want to look naturally put together.
