Sunshine, blooming flowers, and fresh air breathe new life into our beauty routines. After everything we have experienced, it is no wonder natural faces command both the catwalks and everyday makeup looks this season. As we shift more into effortless and low-maintenance makeup that accentuates natural beauty, try these products that can transform your beauty routine, according to our resident beauty expert, Ana Bribiesca Hoff.
Opt for a lighter coverage foundation that lets skin breathe and enhances your natural complexion. Try Nars Sheer Glow, a weightless, glowing foundation with sheer and buildable coverage that allows your skin’s natural beauty to shine. Mix with Nars Radiance Primer SPF 35.

GLOW BIG OR GO HOME
Let’s be reminded of the power of a well-placed glow for a dewy, otherworldly look. Try Gucci Éclat De Beauté Effet Lumière, a multi-use gel gloss that creates a luminous light effect on bare skin or on top of makeup.

It’s time to rock an untamed brow with a bit of messy. This low-maintenance look still requires the perfect product to achieve a strong arch with a few natural-looking strays. Try Marc Jacobs Brow Wow Duo Brow, a two-in-one brow pencil and tinted gel.

Cherubic blush makes an appearance this season, draped across the apple of your cheeks all the way up to your cheekbones for a youthful, lifted appearance. Try Rare Beauty Stay Vulnerable in Nearly Neutral, a liquid-like cream blush.

FLUTTER THOSE LASHES

EMBRACE THE RAINBOW
Pinks, yellows, blues, and greens shift into joyful colors to create beautiful eye looks. Our favorite duo? A dusty rose on the top eyelid paired with a rusty orange along the bottom lashes. Add the Anastasia Beverly Hills Soft Glam Eyeshadow Palette to your makeup bag.

Time to swipe on one of the hottest lipstick colors of the season. Refresh your look with a colored lip balm in a vibrant fuchsia hue for the perfect bite of color. Try Giorgio Armani Ecstasy Tinted Lip Balm in plum.
