When it comes to personal makeup style, we usually fall under one of two categories — a matte makeup fan or a radiance chaser. The latter, however, has a connotation associated with it that it’s only for the summer, but we’re here to debunk that myth. Repeat after us: Glowing, radiant skin is always in. The thing we love most about radiant makeup is how natural and healthy it makes your complexion look, and when done right, it can look like you have no makeup on at all. To pull it off, all you need is a good hydrating foundation for your base and blush, lots and lots of blush.
The first step in a natural, no-makeup makeup look is a good foundation, preferably, one with long-lasting hydrating to keep your skin looking smooth and supple, like the Maybelline New York Dream Radiant Liquid Hydrating Foundation. This foundation has a lightweight texture and gives your skin a subtle, skin-blurring glow. It’s infused with hyaluronic acid (hello, hydration) and collagen (to smooth and plump) while delivering medium coverage. Unlike foundations that can be drying and in turn, emphasize every skin imperfection and dry patch, this one leaves a smooth even tone over your complexion.
But no makeup look — no matter how natural it is — is complete without a little blush. To keep the color convincing, you just need the right formula. Enter, the Maybelline New York Cheek Heat Gel-Cream Blush. This gel-to-cream blush product glides onto skin effortlessly and smoothly, allowing you to blend and buff to your heart's content. The texture then transforms into a creamy consistency that allows the pigment to melt into skin. It comes in six natural flush hues that will give you a sun-kissed or windswept (depending on the season) glow.
One, two, and you’re done! We have a feeling this easy no-makeup, makeup tutorial is going to become your weekend beauty look.
