This Foundation-Free Makeup Routine Is Perfect for SummerJune 08, 2021
Fill in Your Brows
Fill in your brows using your go-to eyebrow product — this will make your eyes pop and give your brows shape and dimension. We recommend using the Maybelline New York TattooStudio Brow Pencil to fill in your brows then finish with a swipe of the L’Oréal Paris Unbelievabrow Top Coat for a fluffy, feathered effect that won’t melt in the summer heat.
Use a glowy primer to achieve a healthy, lit-from-within complexion. Try applying it all over your face for a radiant finish or on the high points of your cheeks, nose and temples to strategically catch the light. We’re currently loving the Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Hydrating Primer.
Curl Your Lashes
Emphasizing your eyelashes is a must. To get a more voluminous appearance, we recommend using an eyelash curler like the cult-favorite Shu Uemura Curler. If you’re going for a more low-key look, feel free to skip the mascara. But if you want to really lengthen and volumize your lashes, we suggest trying the Maybelline New York Lash Sensational Sky High Mascara.
Touch Up With Concealer
Grab a concealer to target skin imperfections and give the appearance of an even complexion. Apply it under your eyes and on any other areas where you need a little extra coverage — just make sure you blend it in well to achieve a flawless finish. We like the L’Oréal Paris True Match Eye Cream Concealer for lightweight coverage.
Grab a glowing highlighter and apply it to the high points of your face, including your cheekbones, down your nose and on your temples. Blend it in well to ensure there are no harsh edges or lines. For a subtle gleam, reach for the YSL Beauty Touche Éclat Shimmer Stick Highlighter.
Finish Off With Blush
While you definitely don’t have to add blush, we think a subtle flush is the perfect finish to this summer-ready look. It adds a pop of color to your foundation-free face and creates a sun-kissed, rosy vibe. One of our current go-tos? The NYX Professional Makeup Bare With Me Luminous Cheek Serum.
