Summertime makeup should be as fresh, dewy, and breezy as the outdoor picnics and barbecues you wear it too. More than ever, it should complement your natural features rather than cover them up–no one wants thick, cakey makeup baking in the sun!
Any perfect makeup look starts with the skin, so I recently went on the hunt for the ultimate summertime clean foundation. I visited clean beauty shop, The Detox Market, and was lucky enough to have a sales associate with MY EXACT SKIN TONE help me. She had tried every foundation in the store and recommended ILIA Beauty’s True Skin Serum Foundation, as the shade matched me perfectly and the coverage masked my imperfections without feeling heavy. I love it! Didn’t get her name but shoutout to the girl at the WeHo location with the pretty freckles!
I apply a light-to-medium layer of foundation with a beauty blender, and build up where I need to. The spirit of feature-enhancing makeup continues with lightly contouring the rest of the face with a bit of bronzer in the hallows of my cheeks and in the sockets of my eyes, as well as highlighter where the light catches on my cheekbones and eyelids. A bold, red lip finishes the look with a flair.
