How to Pull Off Bare Skin and Bright Eye Makeup How to Pull Off Bare Skin and Bright Eye Makeup How to Pull Off Bare Skin and Bright Eye Makeup

Summer, you’ve got to love it. One thing that’s not so lovable, though? Ultra-high temps that lead to makeup sweating off. So, why not skip the face makeup altogether? With the season’s bare skin and bright eye makeup beauty trend, you can do just that. Here, we teach you how to perfect your complexion with your skin care routine before diving deep into the most minimalist makeup routine ever. Ready to rock the equally bare, equally bold beauty look? Keep reading!

Bare Skin and Bright Eye Makeup Prep Steps

This makeup idea is all about showcasing a crystal clear, cloudless complexion paired with a seriously glam eye makeup look. The key to really making it pop is to start with your skin care routine. All you have to do is cleanse your skin—we recommend using the L’Oréal Paris Pure-Clay Detox & Brighten Cleanser, L’Oréal Paris Pure-Clay Purify & Mattify Cleanser, or L’Oréal Paris Pure-Clay Exfoliate & Refine Cleanser based on your complexion concerns—and moisturize it. Instead of reaching for a heavy facial moisturizer, be sure to keep it ultra-light to help perfect your dewy bare skin look. Not sure which moisturizer fits the bill? We love the L’Oréal Paris Hydra Genius Daily Liquid Care – Normal/Dry Skin, L’Oréal Paris Hydra Genius Daily Liquid Care – Normal/Oily Skin, or L’Oréal Paris Hydra Genius Daily Liquid Care – Extra Dry Skin.

Editor’s tip: If you find that after cleansing your face your complexion appears more dry than dewy, before moisturizing you may want to incorporate a face scrub into your skin care routine. The L’Oréal Paris Pure-Sugar Smooth & Glow Face Scrub, L’Oréal Paris Pure-Sugar Nourish & Soften Face Scrub, and L’Oreal Paris Pure-Sugar Purify & Unclog Face Scrub can work a world of wonder for your skin, regardless of skin type, so that your moisturize can really quench your skin’s thirst and create the dewy finish you’re craving for this summer. Now that your bare skin routine is complete, let’s talk minimal makeup and bold statement eyes.

How to Bring Your Bare Skin and Bright Eye Makeup Look to Life

Follow this step-by-step makeup tutorial to rock bare skin and bright eye makeup.

Step 1: Prime Your Complexion

One of the best ways to create a long-lasting beauty look is to start with face makeup primer. Since this bare skin makeup look is especially pretty when featuring a dewy glow, try using the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Glow Lock Makeup Primer. This primer can help even the appearance of your skin tone and reduce the appearance of your pores for a more flawless-looking complexion. Simply blend a dime-sized amount onto skin and move on to the next step.

Step 2: Conceal Any Discolorations

Since the agenda is a bare skin appearance, you won’t be using and full face makeup products apart from the primer you just applied. That doesn’t mean you can’t apply concealer, though. Whether you’re experience redness, dark circles, or a pesky breakout, a few dabs of the L’Oréal Paris True Match™ Super-Blendable Multi-Use Concealer will do the trick. Simply dab it on and use a L’Oréal Paris Infallible Blend Artist Concealer Blender to blend it all in so that it doesn’t look like you have random spots of makeup on your otherwise bare face.

Step 3: Subtly Highlight

Take a look at some of social media’s top makeup artists and even their barest beauty looks incorporate a sheer glow. To get the look, use a L’Oréal Paris Infallible Blend Artist Contour Blender to dab some of the L’Oréal Paris True Match™ Lumi Glotion Natural Glow Enhancer or L’Oréal Paris True Match™ Lumi Glow Amour Glow Boosting Drops onto your cheekbones. Extend the glow from just above the apple of your cheeks up towards your temples for a natural-looking radiance.

Step 4: Apply Eyeshadow

Depending on which type of eye shadow look you’re aiming to achieve, use a palette (we love the L’Oréal Paris Paradise Enchanted Scented Eyeshadow Palette) or single eye shadow (you’ll obsess over the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Crushed Foils Metallic Eye Shadow). Use a fluffy eye shadow brush to blend it from your lash line up just past your crease. Be sure to start with a medium color if you plan on using three colors, that way the lighter and darker colors will have something to blend into which reduces the chance of any muddiness.

Step 5: Accentuate Your Lashes and Lash Lines

To complete your bare skin, bright eye makeup look, consider how you want your lashes and lash lines to look. Want another pop of color? Try the seriously chic L’Oréal Paris Voluminous Lash Paradise Liquid Eyeliner in Rose Gold. After applying your eyeliner, prime your lashes with a swipe of the L’Oréal Paris Voluminous Lash Paradise Mascara Primer/Base before applying a coat of the L’Oréal Paris Voluminous Lash Paradise Mascara in Mystic Black. Voila!

Now, since this beauty look is all about showcasing bare skin with bright eye makeup, most times lip color isn’t a part of the mix. However, if you really want to enhance your pout, we recommend going for a glossy shade to pair with your dewy visage. Choose from the L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Shine Lipstick collection to find your perfect fit.
