The Summer calls for refreshed skin. For this season it’s ideal to wear the least makeup as possible, but how can we look our best with minimum products?
When it comes to a natural makeup look, the trick is to make it look like you have nothing on, because it focuses on enhancing our features instead of hiding our imperfections.
A natural makeup look is be perfect to wear for your beach or outdoor activity. Here are my five tips or hacks to use the least amount of products while targeting a few key areas of our face.
1. Mix your foundation with your moisturizer.
Create your own BB cream! By simply mixing a few drops of your regular foundation with your daily moisturizer (if it’s SPF even better). This creates a lightweight formula that’s perfect for a hot summer day.
2. Wear lipstick as blush
A two in one you might think? Well yes. This is one of my favorite beauty hacks and it works just as well as a regular cream blush. The lipstick’s formula lasts much longer on your skin, so it’s a great option to fake that sun kissed glow.
3. Hairspray and a spoolie = set brows
Why spend your money on expensive brow gels? Instead, take your favorite hairspray and apply it to a spoolie, then immediately brush your brows as you like. This sets them for the rest of the they, and trust me, they will behave. 😉
Talking about cream products, this one goes to the bronzer. An easy way to recreate that California bronze we all crave in the summer, is to take a powder bronzer (or a compact if it’s easier for you) and your liquid foundation. Mix it all together and Voila! Keep it in a small container for further use.
5. Concealer as foundation
If you prefer to not wear foundation but still have that flawless complexion, using concealer to target all those problem areas is a great option. Your skin will be the protagonist, so make sure your skin care is on point.
