No-Makeup Makeup & Tips For a Natural Look
You wouldn’t wear a thick, wool turtleneck sweater during the summer, right? Well, a full-face of heavy foundation looks just as out of place. “When you think of summer makeup, it’s always fresh, natural, and sunny—never heavy,” says Avon celebrity makeup artist Kelsey Deenihan. “When we’re exposing more skin, it’s all about a healthy, radiant, no-makeup look.” Of course, there’s a practicability factor, too. “It’s not comfortable to be wearing so much makeup when you’re sweating!” she says. Ready to summer-ify your makeup? Here’s how to lighten up—and look gorgeous!—this season.
Choose the right foundation:
Deenihan suggests going for a medium-coverage formula. It will be just enough to cover redness and imperfections, but won’t make you look overly made up. And it’s even more important to choose a light, breathable formula that won’t feel suffocating on your skin.
Picking the right foundation is the key to getting a natural look. My pick: Avon True Color Ideal Nude Foundation. It covers everything you want to hide, but still feels and looks light on the skin. Another plus for summer: It has SPF 20!

Apply it right.
Deenihan recommends starting in the middle of your face and using a fluffy brush and circular motions to “buff” your foundation into your skin. “Buffing it, instead of brushing it or rubbing it in with a sponge, gives a more natural look because it evens it out and really pushes it into the skin instead of just laying it on top,” she says. “It will give you that ‘second-skin’.”
Next, go in with a concealer, like Avon True Color Ideal Nude Cream Concealer, and place it just where you need a little extra coverage like redness around the nose, blemishes, or dark under-eye circles.

Add some highlights.
To really take your no-makeup look to the next level, don’t forget highlighter! “Just be sure to avoid products with large flecks of glitter, because they won’t look natural,” says Deenihan, who loves mark. by Avon Touch & Glow Shimmer Cream Cubes.
“Brush it on the high points of your face: the tops of the cheeks, bridge of the nose, under the brows, and just above your cupid’s bow,” she says. “That is really going to accentuate your features and bring light to your face.”
