If you’re anything like me, you want to look great for selfies by the pool without the hassle of putting on a full face. Fortunately, there’s a lightweight combo for that which also doubles as a great way to keep your skin protected from rays. With the use of minimum natural makeup, this combo is a surefire winner.
To get the look, follow these easy steps:
This lotion is AH-mazing and worry free! With SPF 70+ sun protection you are totally covered for extensive time by the pool without worrying about cooking. Since the lotion is oil free, you won’t have to worry about getting that greasy look after a few hours. And to top it off, Neutrogena designed this lotion not to wear off from rubbing, sweating, or wiping. That means you don’t have to worry about constant application.
Yes, Yes, and Yes to all of that!
Simply squeeze a dime sized portion into your hands and rub the lotion on your face. Only 1 minute in and you’re already ready for the next step.
NYX Honey Dew Me Up
Honey Dew Me Up is a primer which doubles as a skin serum. The light reflective gold flecks in this serum create a glow that leaves you radiant with minimum effort. As an added plus, the serum is infused with honey, gold, and collagen which work to improve the look of your skin. When I am wearing natural makeup, I use this product each time.
For pool days, simply unscrew the primer and apply the gel to your T-zone. Use your finger tips to evenly distribute the product. Afterward, you’ll notice soft dewy skin that looks like you didn’t try.
You could truthfully stop with Honey Dew Me Up and look like a natural beauty. However, I like to take it one step further by using two inexpensive faves as my highlighting combo.
After giving Honey Dew Me Up a quick second to dry, use Maybelline Master Strobing Stick to open the eyes and add dimension to the face. Next, swipe the stick across the top of cheekbones, down the middle of the nose and above the brow bone.
This lipstick comes off in a sheer smooth finish that doesn’t make me look to over done. It is the perfect nude for a day at the pool with girlfriends. I’d even go as far as saying this lippie is the quintessential component of any natural makeup look. Needless to say, I think of this lipstick as the cherry on top.
And just like that, you’re all set with a poolside fresh face created with very natural makeup that will make you glow from every angle.
