The Makeup You’ll Forget You’re Wearing #makeup_tips
After beauty-shop hopping and sweating off all of my under-eye concealer in the process, I found these goodies that boost your natural pretty, while feeling like…well, nothing on your skin.
Urban Decay Naked Skin Bronzing Beauty Balm, $34: Consider this tube your new secret weapon for summer. Tinted with just enough bronzer to make it look like you were on vacation, but providing you with the coverage you'd want from your BB cream, this product is pretty much everything. As with other beauty balms, you'll get minimized pores and lines instantly plus firmer, smoother skin in just eight weeks of use.
Clinique Naturally Glossy Mascara, $16: Skip the liner and shadow (I mean, it's just too hot out right now), and just apply this instead. The gel-based formula gives lashes a shiny, clump-free look, and a pliant, non-crunchy feel. Think of it as the ultra-chic hybrid of lash tinting and clear mascara.
Too Faced The Secret to No Makeup Makeup Fresh and Flawless Palette, $36: Toss this palette filled with super-subtle colors in your gym bag for on-the-go touch-ups for your entire face. Bonus: You can even use your fingers (cleaned, of course) to blend the various concealers, luminizers and blushes found in the pint-sized kit.
Perricone MD No Blush Blush, $35: Pumped with anti-aging ingredients like peptides and alpha lipoic acid, this one-shade-REALLY-fits-all blush serum self-adjusts to give every skintone an impartial, rosy glow. Did we mention its got SPF 30, too? (Not that you should ever forget your sunscreen, just saying...)
Bobbi Brown Sheer Lip Color in Summer Nude, $26 Swipe this universally-perfect, lightweight lipstick on for a sheer wash of color that looks like vacation in a tube. Since its infused with moisturizing oils and butters, this light beige swipes on just like BUTTAH, baby.
