After a whole season of heavy makeup and festive looks, I can think of nothing better than fresh faced, “no makeup” makeup. My favorite brand to go to when I want to rock a fresh face is Glossier. They have incredible products, and their “skincare first” philosophy makes them the perfect brand for this type of makeup look. I’ve been wearing this particular look for the past few days after the chaos of Christmas, and it’s really been nice to take a break from wearing several layers of product (honestly, I don’t want to wear a full face of glam makeup again for a month…but I probably will for New Year’s Eve).
To start, I hydrate and prime my face with the Priming Moisturizer. This soothing cream gives my skin such a boost first thing in the morning, and really creates a nice, smooth base to apply the rest of the products for the day. Even on days where I don’t wear anything else, I make sure to apply this moisturizer because it’s so nice (in the wintertime, I switch to the Priming Moisturizer Rich for even more hydration).
For my base, I first use the Perfecting Skin Tint in Light all over my face to help give my skin a healthy, even tone. If I’m suffering from anything severe like breakouts or dark circles, I’ll conceal them with the Stretch Concealer in Light, but most days I can get away with just the skin tint. I love that these two can be used alone or together and you get amazing results either way. The skin tint really helps to even out the look of my skin, and the concealer is so buttery and just melts into the skin while giving you fantastic coverage. On days when I’m in a rush, I can get away with just a bit of the concealer to freshen my skin up.
To set my concealer, I use the new Wowder Duo in Light/Medium. This powder is so incredibly lightweight, and a light dusting over the face gives you the most flawless finish while also setting everything in place for the day. For that coveted “lit from within” glow, I always turn to the Haloscope in Quartz for some instant dewiness. I’d put this all over my face if I could, but since I don’t want to go through a stick like it’s nothing, I just put it on the tops of my cheeks, the tip of my nose, my Cupid’s bow, and a little on the center of my chin.
If I’m looking a bit pale or want to add some more definition to my face, I’ll use the Cloud Paint in Haze. This brown-toned nude blush is great for adding some warmth to the face, plus the cream formula blends out effortlessly into the skin for a flawless finish. To tame my brows and give them a naturally-full look, I’ll quickly brush some of Boy Brow in Brown throughout. This keeps the hairs in place and fills in any sparse areas with extreme ease. Most days I’ll leave my lips alone with just a bit of balm, but if I want to add a hint of color I’ll use the Generation G Sheer Matte Lipstick in Like – a powdery pink shade that gives a subtle, “just ate a popsicle” stain that looks super cute.
