Need inspiration for your summer looks? You can always count on Coleen Garcia. This mestiza beauty wears fresh and minimal makeup regularly, even to big events like press launches. Just recently, she wore this almost au naturel look that took our breath away:
So stunning! And the best part? You don't need a makeup artist to recreate this look. Here's a short checklist for achieving a fresh, no-fuss face:
1. Cream highlighter
For a glow done in 30 seconds, skip the foundation and go straight to highlighter. Swipe some on your cheekbones, nose bridge, and the inner corners of your eyes. Choose a cream-based formula that will stay on the skin without the oily or chalky feel!

2. Lip and cheek tint
Master the monochrome look and match your cheek color with your lips. Grab your favorite long-wearing and blendable tint and dab away! Coleen used a youthful shade of pink for this look, but you can go for coral and mauve if those tickle your fancy.

3. Curling mascara
A bright, natural-looking eye is never complete without mascara. To cop Coleen's fluttery lashes, avoid volumizing mascaras that usually causes clumps. Instead, make your eyes pop with a lengthening mascara that holds a tight curl.
