The warmer, humid summer months can make it feel almost impossible to tame frizzy hair and successfully apply makeup without sweating it off before walking out the door. Prepare to give your complexion a break and hit the snooze button a little bit longer because the “no-makeup” makeup look is here to stay.
Prepare Your Skin
The first step in nailing the no makeup look is to cleanse and hydrate your skin properly before applying makeup. Believe it or not, celebrities are not the only people who can wake up and look perfectly dewey without doing much to their skin. Start by cleansing with your favorite cleanser and follow by hydrating with Vegamour’s Marula Oil. The all vegan, ultra-hydrating oil will reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles while adding a healthy glow. Your skin is now prepped and fresh for whatever products you decide to layer on top!

If you have any dark circles or blemishes you’d like to cover up, opt for a clean beauty brand that won’t clog your pores. We love this concealer from RMS beauty because it moisturizes and heals. The lightweight formula is super hydrating and does just enough to cover imperfections without feeling too heavy on the skin.
Embrace Your Brows
Bold brows are in and the best way to rock a fresh face is to focus on making your brows look full and feathered. If you feel as though your brows need help growing in, incorporate a growth serum into your beauty routine. Vegamour’s vegaBROW serum is a vegan formula that will catapult your brows into a growth phase you didn’t know was possible. After applying the serum daily, you’ll start to notice new hair growth within 30 days. Enhance the beauty of your thicker brows by applying a brow gel that will groom your hairs into place.
Go Easy on Mascara
If you yearn to perfect the no makeup look year around, focus on growing your lashes to make it look like you’re wearing mascara, even when you aren’t! After you cleanse and hydrate your skin, apply mascara and brow gel.
Blush and Go

Now that your skin is plump, hydrated and glowing and your lashes and brows are voluminous, it’s time to add a pop of color to your cheeks. Cream blush is perfect for the summer months because it adds a subtle tint without feeling cakey. Glossier’s cult-favorite Cloud Paint is an amazing cruelty-free option. The pillowy, gel-cream formula is buildable, so it’s ideal for those days when you want to look fresh without feeling overly done up.
