How to Master a Perfectly Chill No-Makeup Makeup Look
Itâ€™s been hotter than the deepest depths of hell for quite some time now. With August just around the corner, and temps nearing 100 degrees, itâ€™s safe to say that nobody wants to walk around with cake face, no matter how beat it may be.
For moments spent looking summertime fine while poolside, or popping open a fresh bottle of rose at your bestieâ€™s party, itâ€™s important to look your best. â€œRooftop seasonâ€ is all about effortlessly slaying sun-kissed skin, and maintaining a glow dewier than a piece of your grandmotherâ€™s homemade pound cake. Weâ€™re talking moist.
During the summer, less is more â€” and that definitely goes for your makeup. Weâ€™re huge fans of the no-makeup-makeup look, which requires minimal product for maximum impact. Beauty vlogger and resident â€œbare-facedâ€ expertÂ Avielle AmorÂ has broken down how to achieve the look of the season in 6 easy steps. Who needs Snapchat filters when you can practically bare it all?
Start with a fresh, cleansed face.
Tame the brows. I get my eyebrows microbladed at Dr. Gerstmanâ€™s office in NYC, so I no longer have to fill them in. However, I always brush my eyebrows to shape them, which helps create a more polished look.
Using your hands in a circular motion, apply a lightweight tinted moisturizer that lasts all day and doesn’t look “cakey” Â â€” especially during hotter months.
I love using illuminators. To brighten the face, apply illuminator to cheekbones, tip of the nose, cupidâ€™s bow, and inner corners of the eyes to look more awake. The product helps bring out the natural contours of the face without having to apply bronzer.
Apply mascara to add a little length to lashes, and make eyes appear more open.
Finally, top the look off with a neutral color moisturizing lip balm. The tint adds the perfect flush of color to your pout without looking overdone.
