'Tis the season where almost everyone prefers a short haircut and less layers of clothing, so it's only a matter of time before our makeup routine follows suit. This doesn't mean you're doomed to have boring looks for the summer, though, and we have proof. Keep scrolling for some celebrity-approved ways to wear minimal makeup!
1. Gabbi Garcia
Fighting overly-shiny skin is a struggle in the summer, so we won't blame you for rocking an all-matte base. That said, you can place your glow elsewhere—a quick swipe of bronze eyeshadow will instantly contour your peepers, while a nude lip gloss can add color and dimension to your pout.
2. Gabs Gibbs
Nothing amps up a minimal face than a bold lip, so always pack your favorite lip color (red is foolproof!) in case you need to look extra made-up.
3. Janella Salvador
Dotting a few fake freckles on your cheeks will instantly freshen up a post-beach glow. For more skin love, skip the concealer and let your natural flush from the hot temps show and highlight it with more blush and bronzer as needed.
4. Elisse Joson
Contrary to popular belief, you can still wear glossy makeup in the summer. The secret is concentrating the slick on one area that isn't your T-zone, like the apples of your cheeks, so it can grab all the attention while the rest of your face stays shine-free.
5. Katarina Rodriguez
We know it's hard to stop yourself from applying highlighter everywhere, but a little restraint is needed for a believable and non-oily glow. Focus on the essential areas: the top of your cheekbones, cupid's bow, inner tearducts, and if you're in a swimsuit, your shoulders and the center of your legs.
6. Isabelle Daza
For dinners and parties, wear a lightweight base that'll stay comfortable no matter the room temperature. For a romantic touch, skip the nude lip and opt for a deeper shade like rosy brown or dark mauve.
7. Kira Balinger
If you don't want a bright lip color to grab all the attention, match its color story with your blush to tie the look together.
