With temperatures rising and rooftop happy hours, patio brunches and vacations all on the horizon, SPF is the only beauty product that we should be packing onto our skin. We’re following the expert advice from Bella Hadid’s MUA, Vincent Oquendo, to create the perfect “no makeup” makeup look just in time for summer. Bella is no stranger to rocking effortless glam makeup looks, so create a look that emphasizes and enhances the natural beauty of your complexion without the excess oils that leave skin feeling like a sweaty mess!
According to Oquendo, “The key thing about mastering a “no makeup” look is not that there’s actually no makeup, but that it’s done masterfully with precision. It’s all about a balance,” he said in a W Magazine article. “For every glowy product, you have a matte product to balance it out”
This full face beauty regimen is summer-proof with longwear makeup capabilities, skincare-infused formulas and radiance-boosting skincare ingredients that create a natural, lit-from-within finish.

Step #2: Longwear Foundation

Oquendo Tip: “I’ll mix it [foundation] with my moisturizer and buff on the skin with a fluffy brush so it kind of gives you this fresh, whipped veil of makeup over the skin.”
Step #3: Setting Powder
It’s no secret that baking is the key to locking in your makeup products for long-lasting performance. Bake your under eye area and concealer with this talc-free Translucent Loose Setting Powder that keeps product in place without adding unwanted color or coverage. The microfine formula blends seamlessly into the skin without accentuating fine lines, pores or texture.

Step #4: Setting Mists
Over the past few years, using a setting spray has grown in popularity as it can be used to deliver hydration to the skin, lock in a makeup look or amp up the pigment in your color products. The Lit Mist Illuminating Setting Spray is the complexion’s best companion during the summer months, as it instantly hydrates the complexion for an effortless glow. This refreshing makeup setting spray is packed with skincare ingredients, like antioxidants to help protect skin against environmental stressors, such as high energy visible blue light, throughout the day.

The result is a revitalized complexion with dewy shimmer that complements all skin types.
