Five cool make-up looks for summer that involve minimal effort and offer maximum impact. 

Meet the most striking yet easy-to-cop make-up looks for warm weather. These looks involve just a couple of products and look delish both on IG and IRL.

1. NUDE, NOT NAKED

When it comes to creating that perfect no make-up make-up look, using a nude lipstick is a no-brainer. However, these plush pouts that are super-easy to create and look bomb. All you need is a nude lip liner to define the lip line, then fill in your lips with a clear gloss. Feathered brows go well with this chic look, so bring out your favourite gel and brush ’em arches out.

2. PINK SO PUNK

BLUMARINE
The rosy hue is shedding its delicate image, all thanks to the backstage pros. Instead of dousing your cheeks in blush, use a pink shadow to create a concentrated effect around the eyes. Add a lip tint in the centre of your lips for a just-bitten effect, and spritz a glow mist for a dewy finish.

3. BRONZED GODDESS 

PAYAL PRATAP
In case you are wondering, yes, we are filing bronzed skin under ‘minimal make-up looks’ this season. If you’re not big on blush, bronzer will serve as a great alternative. It not only adds warmth to your complexion—the kind of sunkissed glow an exotic vacay awards you with—but also sharpens your features for a chiselled look. A powder formula works best for this look, so take a large, fluffy brush and swirl it all over your face to add warm radiance. Build intensity under the cheekbones and jawline to make them appear sharper.

4. A COLOURFUL LINE-UP

SALVATORE FERRAGAMO
A clean, no-fuss face can do with a little bit of colour, don’t you think? Enter bright  wings that put your eyes in the spotlight. You can opt for a vivid shade of your choice and work anything from a blunt cat-eye to XXL wings to prettify your peepers. To finish up, leave your lips bare like the rest of your face or use a nourishing oil for a plump pucker.

5. HIGH SHINE...

HUEMN
...minus loading up on highlighter. Yes, it is possible! We have had bare skin sightings aplenty over the past few seasons, and it is super easy to cop. Well-hydrated skin always looks good, but to achieve a semi-glass-skin effect you need to top it up with a face oil—it helps seal the moisture and lends sheen to skin. Finish the look with a clear, non-sticky gloss on your lips and lids.
