By now you’re probably familiar with the beauty trend that has taken over social media, fashion runways around the world, and even Skin1765’s own staff: No Makeup Makeup. The goal is to appear as glowy, beautiful, and effortless as possible. This month we want to focus on self-love, skin health, and that natural, fresh-faced look. Best of all, this is perfect for anyone of any age! Here, we will go over some tips on how to show your skin some love by treating it well through a simple yet effective skincare routine.

When going for that natural, fresh-faced look, remember there is no such thing as perfect or flawless skin. The focus should be on the health of our skin. Healthy skin = glowing skin!  You can think of your skincare regimen as the first steps in your makeup routine. A simple morning regimen consists of:

+Mild exfoliating cleanser
+Antioxidant serum
+Hydrator
+Eye cream
+Sunscreen

At night, use a gentle cleanser followed by a peptide serum, exfoliating moisturizer, and eye cream. Some of our favorite products come from our in-house cosmeceutical brand, Skin1765. Below is a perfect example of an easy-to-use, and extremely effective skincare routine!

AM Routine
Alpha 2 Wash ($16), CE Feurulic  Antioxidant Serum ($96), B+ Hydrating Serum ($68), Eye Restore ($67), Protect SPF 50+ ($36), or Smartmatte SPF 50 ($48) if your skin tends to be oily.

PM Routine
Cleanse ($38), Repair ($130), Eye Restore ($67), and Exfoliate 10 Cream ($36).

Now, let’s look at some tips for a gorgeous, natural and simple makeup application using GloSkinBeauty. 

First, you’ll want to choose the base you use.
The Tinted Primer ($38) can help control excess oil, decrease unwanted shine, and leave you with silky-smooth and more even-toned skin. If you want a little extra coverage, you can follow with the Pressed Base ($50) to add semi-matte, buildable coverage that never feels heavy and won’t settle into lines and wrinkles. I love applying this with the Taper Setting Powder Brush ($28) for sheer to medium coverage. The Luminous Liquid Foundation ($60) combines light-diffusing diamond powder with a blend of antioxidants and moisturizing ingredients to provide a slightly dewy, soft-focus effect that feels light as a feather on your skin. Apply with the Dual Fiber Face Brush ($36).  Don’t forget to blend down to your neck!

Next you can conceal any areas that need additional coverage.
Apply Oil Free Camouflage ($30) with the Full Coverage Camouflage Brush ($20) to conceal imperfections on your face without clogging your pores. Under your eyes, use the Liquid Bright Concealer ($34) to neutralize dark circles, brighten, and soften fine lines for a wide-awake look. Apply using the built-in brush, then pat gently with your ring finger to blend.

A subtle application of bronzer, highlighter, and blush will add that coveted lit-from-within look.
The Contour Kit ($42) includes 2 buildable, natural-looking shades of bronzer, and 2 shimmery, never glittery, shades for highlighting. Think subtle definition and illumination. Use the contour side of the Contour/Highlighter Brush ($32) to apply bronzer in the shape of a “3” from your hairline near your temples, around to the cheekbone, then down to your jawline. Flip the brush around to the highlight side and apply highlighter to the highpoints of your forehead, cheekbones, nose, and cupids bow. Make sure to blend! Apply Blush ($32) using the Dual Fiber Cheek Brush ($24) to the apples of your cheeks for a healthy-looking wash of color.

For the eyes, you’ll want to keep it simple and natural.
The Cream Stay Shadow Sticks ($20) come in 12 easy-to-use, long lasting shades. Use one shade all over, or mix and match for a look that is truly your own. Simply swipe on and smudge with your finger for a subtle, hazy look. Use the built-in sharpener to create a perfect point for lining and defining the eye. A couple of coats of Water Resistant Mascara ($22) will add length, volume, and dimension to your lashes. Sculpt and control eyebrows with a quick swipe of translucent Brow Gel ($20) for a look that lasts all day.

Choosing a lip color that accentuates your perfect pout will pull your look together.
The Cream Glaze Crayons ($20) and Suede Matte Crayons ($20) come in a variety of shades for a long-lasting and saturated pop of color. Now that your look is complete, remember to smile and let your inner beauty shine!
