Every year, as soon as the warmer temperatures come knocking, there’s a quick transition to airy outfits, streamlined regimens and light “no makeup” looks.

To perfect the latter for a summer of effortless radiance, simply cleanse, bronze, highlight and enhance your natural beauty using the five essentials below. Plus, turn it up a notch with tips from our Director of Education and in-house Licensed Makeup Artist, Rosalba Martone.

No Makeup Easy Rinse Makeup-Removing Cleanser

Rosalba’s Recommendation: “Use in the morning to prep the skin for the perfect ‘no makeup’ look and again at night to gently and effectively take it all off (including eye makeup).”

There’s no such thing as a flawless “no makeup” look without a well-rounded skincare regimen. Prep your skin for perfection with this gentle gel cleanser that thoroughly washes away impurities without stripping the skin of its natural oils. The result is a complexion that feels soft and looks rejuvenated.

No Makeup Bronzer

Rosalba’s Recommendation: “For a warm glow, mix a few drops into your moisturizer.”

Following your complete skincare regimen, gently pat this weightless bronzer onto the the high points of your face — where the sun naturally hits — to create an instantly natural, sun-kissed glow. Infused with skincare ingredients like Vitamin C Ester and Chinese ginger plant extract, it simultaneously improves the appearance of skin dullness and discoloration over time.

No Makeup Highlighter

Rosalba’s Recommendation: “Similar to the bronzer, if you are looking for a more subtle, lit-from-within luminosity, add one to two drops to your moisturizer.”

Instantly accentuate your cheekbones, brow area and the tip of your nose with a few drops of this liquid gel highlighter. Its sheer, blendable formula adds subtle radiance for a dewy, luminous finish. Featuring the same skin-improving ingredients as its bronzing counterpart, you’ll even notice a visibly even, brighter complexion over time.

No Makeup Mascara

Designed with nourishing biotin, replenishing avocado oil and growth-encouraging tocotrienols (a form of vitamin E), this 2-in-1 treatment and mascara promotes visibly lifted, thicker eyelashes while improving their natural appearance over time. Featuring a unique, dual-brush design, “you’ll want to use its root-to-tip brush at the lash root to build thickness and volume. Then, rotate and sweep the fine-tooth comb through the lashes to lengthen and define,” Martone directs.

No Makeup Lip Oil

Rosalba’s Tip: “Layer atop your lipstick for an extra pop of color. Or, try one of these other trending lip looks.”

Pucker up to lips that appear smoother, plumper and more supple lips this summer with this non-sticky lip oil that provides a hint of tint and enviable shine. Available in six shades, it completes any makeup look as peptides, hyaluronic acid and pomegranate seed oil improve the look of lip lines and dry, rough texture and discoloration.
