Barefaced beauty is having a moment. It’s a cosmetics coup, frankly, after a veritable onslaught of carefully cultivated cat-eyes and contoured cheekbones amid flawless, fully foundationed and powdered skin. But as Newton’s third law states: for every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction and that reaction is the no-makeup makeup look. Well moisturized faces graced the Fall 2016 runways and these skincare products will help you make the most of your natural beauty. Here are our favorite skincare gems for creating a flawless skin look sans makeup.
Look Fresh and Dewy
Hydra Boost Finishing Serum is an add-on product that layers on top of your moisturizer to deeply drench skin with nourishing hyaluronic acid, nourishing and plumping your skin. It provides lightweight hydration for all skin types, even the most sensitive, all while sealing in the benefits of the treatment products you’ve applied underneath. Seaweed and algae extracts enhance cell turnover while firming skin and mitigating the appearance of lines and wrinkles.
Diffuse Undereye Darkness
Peptide Plus Eye Treatment is an all-in-one anti-aging eye treatment powered by a proprietary combination of peptides to lessen the look of dark circles and lines. Tap it around the eyes for a refreshed effect.
Super Sheer Sunscreen SPF 50 is a fresh, matte finish SPF that absorbs quickly and yields an elegant, shine-free finish. Lightweight and packed with UVA blockers, it also features advanced antioxidants to protect skin from environmental damage, all while evening out skintone.
Skin Brightening Complexion Treatment illuminates without irritating sensitive skin to bring uniformity to your skin tone by fading dark spots.
Gloss It Up
For a more subtle take on strobing, illuminate your skin by sweeping shimmery highlighters just where the light hits, like the cheekbones, cupid’s bow and brow bones. Use a dab of thick lip balm and touch it onto the lids for a low-key eye gloss moment.
There you have it: no-makeup makeup success!
