Prep and Prime
Start by cleansing your face to create a clean canvas for makeup application. Follow up with a lightweight moisturizer to hydrate your skin and create a smooth base. For a quick and easy primer, opt for a tinted moisturizer or a BB cream that offers light coverage while priming your skin for makeup.
Conceal and Perfect
Apply a concealer to any areas with blemishes, redness, or under-eye circles. Gently blend the concealer using your fingertips or a makeup sponge for a seamless finish. Remember that the goal is to improve skin tone while maintaining a natural look.
Add a Touch of Color
Use a cream blush in a soft pink or peach shade for a fresh and rosy complexion. Smile and apply the blush to the apples of your cheeks, blending it slightly towards your temples. Cream blushes blend effortlessly into the skin and provide a natural flush of color that mimics a healthy glow.
Enhance Your Eyes
Use a neutral eyeshadow palette with shades that complement your skin tone for a quick eye makeup look. Sweep a light, shimmery shade over your eyelids for a brightening effect. Then, define your lash line with a subtle brown or taupe eyeshadow.
Curl your eyelashes to open up your eyes and make them appear more awake. Apply one coat of mascara to your top lashes for a natural and fluttery look. If you have time, you can also add a light coat to your bottom lashes.
Define Your Brows
Using a brow pencil or powder, fill in any sparse areas in your eyebrows to frame your face and add definition. Brush through your brows with a spoolie to soften harsh lines and create a natural appearance.
Set Your Makeup
To ensure your fresh-tone makeup lasts all day, set your T-zone with a light dusting of translucent powder. If you prefer a dewy finish, skip this step and spritz your face with a hydrating setting spray to lock in the glow.
Finish your fresh-tone makeup look with a swipe of tinted lip balm or a natural lip gloss for a soft and hydrated pout. Choose a shade that enhances your natural lip color and complements the look.
