6 Easy Steps For a Foundation-Free Makeup Routine Minimalists Will LoveJanuary 10, 2022
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 IT Cosmetics Brow Power Universal Eyebrow 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 lasts.
Use a hydrating primer to achieve a healthy, lit-from-within complexion. We’re currently loving the NYX Professional Makeup Plump Right Back Primer + Serum. The lightweight formula is boosted by electrolytes and hyaluronic acid to keep your makeup looking freshly applied all day.
Swipe on Mascara
Emphasizing your eyelashes is a must. For an instant doe-eyed effect, reach for the Maybelline New York Volum’ Express Colossal Curl Bounce Mascara. The innovative formula provides lift, volume and curl (no eyelash curler necessary) to even the straightest of lashes, without any flakes or smudges.
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 Lancôme Teint Idole Ultra Wear All Over Concealer for lightweight full 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 Valentino Beauty V-Lighter Face Base Primer and Highlighter.
Finish Off With Blush
While you don’t have to add blush, we think a subtle flush is the perfect way to add a touch of color to your foundation-free look. One of our current go-tos? The SimiHaze Beauty Sun Flush All Over Face Tint.
