A Makeup Routine for Effortless Beauty
Did you know that with just a few bright, intense colors to your eyes, cheeks or lips you can achieve the same no-makeup makeup look but actually use less product?
As summer is when healthy skin is most on display – this counterintuitive beauty technique from LA makeup artist Jillian Dempsey will help both enhance your natural glow and let you wear minimal amounts of makeup. Trust us – seeing it in action will change the way you approach make up forever!
When it comes to rocking any color, from hot pink to fiery copper and everything in between, the key is to apply with a gentle touch. Thanks to advancements in cleantech, these new pigments for lips, lids and cheeks are more vibrant than ever! So pick a hue that compliments your skin tone and start experimenting!
With just enough restraint each of these shades will be sultry yet subtle – perfect for day or night – regardless of your skin tone.
Lips and Cheeks
Give yourself a stunning and refreshed look with just a dab of color on lips and cheeks. Shine bright like the sun with luscious gloss, tinted balm, creamy lipstick or juicy stain — whatever your preference is! A vibrant flush will give you that all-over glowing complexion while low-key touches help to reveal your natural beauty. With this easy trick, it’ll be impossible not to turn heads everywhere you go!
Feel refreshed and energized with a gentle flush of color. Choose either cream or powder formulas that best suit your skin type, then lightly apply at the apples of your cheeks before blending outwards in an angled motion for a soft, lifting finish. Cream formulations bring forth an extra dewy sheen while powders are longer lasting on oily complexions!
For a stunning bronze-kissed complexion, combine bronzer with blush. It’s ideal for adding warmth to your nose bridge, cupid’s bow, chin and collarbones as well! If you have darker skin tones then opt for warm rose gold shades while if you have lighter skin go for shimmery formulas. Get ready to finally glow like the sun itself!
To achieve a stunning look for both day and night, try dusting on a subtle wash of color across the lids. Layer shades of copper and pink to create an alluring metallic effect or simply use one shade alone.
Finish Your Look: Mascara and Setting Spray
