There’s something so alluring about sun kissed cheeks, freckles, and a dewy face. That vacation-dinner-look after a long day at the beach. Sigh - we miss it too! With summer around the corner we are craving a warm glow more than ever. Thankfully, with the help of just a few incredible products, you can achieve the look from home. We caught up with Makeup Artist Pauly Blanch for his tips and must-have beauty products.
“Skin prep is a must. Take the time to apply the Cream Skin Toner and Water Bank Moisturizer into the face before foundation.” Pauly’s go-to skin products are Laneige Cream Skin Toner & Moisturizer, Water Bank Moisture Cream and Lip Sleeping Mask. You’ll be shocked just how glowy your complexion is after only three steps. You may even be tempted to stop there.
4 MUST HAVE MAKEUP PRODUCTS
Once the skin is properly prepped, Pauly relies on a few key products. “Most makeup products I use are creams. They keep the skin looking fresh and glowy in the sun.”
- Hourglass Foundation Stick gives a dewy, natural look with buildable coverage. Buff into skin in circular motions with a foundation brush. You can go as natural or full coverage as you want with this.
- Nudestix Nudies Highlighter is an all in one product that can be applied to all high points of the face with a stippling brush or fingertips. Focus on tops of the cheek bones, cupids bow, and brow bones. Cream highlighters can be used on the eye for a shimmery shadow as well.
- Huda Beauty Bronzer is a buildable cream that allows you to work from a natural soft to dramatic contour. It is long lasting and sweat resistant. Apply with a stippling brush and blend upwards into the skin.
- Fenty Cream Blush is another multipurpose product. Pauly suggests using it on both cheeks and lips for a cohesive look. This can also be applied with a stipple brush or fingertips.
