How to Get Natural-Looking Makeup for Spring & Summer in Under 10 Minutes

how to get natural makeup look for spring and summer it cosmetics

When warm weather arrives, we all crave the look of natural warmth and radiance for our complexion. If a trip to somewhere tropical isn’t in the cards, don’t worry: We gathered tips from IT Cosmetics beauty pros to help you get the look in under 10 minutes—and with just a few products!

Step 1: Prep Your Skin For Success

Cleansing is an essential first step in any skincare routine, but especially in the warmer months when sweat, oil and impurities are more likely to cling to skin. We love the convenience of micellar water, which takes everything off in seconds without stripping your skin.

Once skin is clean, give it a boost of hydration with the help of hyaluronic acid. You’ll find this hero ingredient in our newly formulated Bye Bye Lines Serum and best-selling Confidence in a Cream. Ideal for all skin types, both of these anti-aging products work to visibly plump skin and smooth the appearance of fine lines—exactly what you want for a natural makeup look.

Step 2: Quickly Correct an Uneven Skin Tone

CC+ Cream Illumination with SPF 50+. The unique formula features micronized light-reflecting pigments to give you the look of glowing skin without glitter or shimmer.

For added coverage and brightness around the eyes, concealer brush.

No coverage is complete without a sweep of setting powder. We recommend applying a talc-free, translucent formula on top of the foundation and concealer you just applied. Because it’s clear, the powder will still allow the radiance you’ve added to shine through while delivering a smooth, airbrushed finish.

Step 3: Get Glowing

Now it’s time for the perfect combination of bronzer, blush and powder luminizer to make your complexion look like it was kissed by the sun. Apply a Hello Light™ Anti-Aging Powder Luminizer to the tops of cheekbones for an eye-catching boost of radiance.

Step 4: Give Your Eyebrows and Lashes Some Love

The best accessories for luminous skin? Natural eyebrows and bold lashes. If you have sparse eyebrows, look for a volumizing and lenghthening mascara for an instant eye-opening effect.

Step 5: Lock Your Makeup in Place

To ensure your naturally radiant makeup look stays put—even on the warmest days—it’s worth doing the extra step of applying a makeup extending spray. We think you’ll love Your Skin But Better Setting Spray+, which sets your makeup for up to 16 hours and also cares for your skin with hyaluronic acid, coconut water and aloe vera extract. Plus, it can be used as a facial mist to replenish your skin throughout the day. After all, nothing says radiance like fresh, dewy skin!
