We’re in the dog days of summer, and a full face of makeup is probably the last thing on your mind. While we definitely love the ritual of packing on shadows, liner, blush, and the whole range of products, we think this is the perfect time of year to give yourself, and your skin, a break. Here are some tried and true low maintenance makeup methods to rock the rest of the summer.

Multipurpose face products

Depending on your desired level of coverage, a BB or CC cream should be the only face product you need on a low maintenance day. Higher coverage creams function beautifully as a breathable foundation and have the advantage of long wear throughout the day.  If you struggle with breakthrough shine during the day, then opt for a matte finish. Beauties who crave that extra glow be sure to pick products that have a dewy finish. Most people apply BB or CC creams with their hands, but for a more even coverage use your Luxe Pro Foundation brush.

Easy, breezy brows

Our Brow Wand can make your brows gorgeous whether you’re going full glam or soft and natural. Use the brush end to put your brow hairs into place and fill in as much or as little as you desire. The result will be sleek, gorgeous brows that don’t look overdone.

Frame your eyes

You might not believe it, but you can actually use your Insanely Intense Tattooed Eyeliner for this low-key summer style! Tightlining, or linking your lash line, is a great little trick to add the appearance of volume to your lash line. Use your Tattooed liner in Jet Black or Brown to fill in the gaps between your eyelashes and make your lashline look fuller. For a bit of extra volume, gently apply your Tattooed Solid pencil along your top waterline.  Then finish off your lashes with mascara. A little bit of product goes a long way for this low maintenance summer makeup tip.

And if you need a little more oomph, a subtle contour

This might go against the concept of “low maintenance”, but some of us makeup lovers can’t help ourselves.

Use our Mini Concealer Sticks to do some light contouring on your cheeks, forehead, or wherever you wish. Then buff it out with our Luxe Pro Contour brush. Depending on how much product you use, the result can be very subtle. The creamy, no-crease texture will last all day without adding extra shine to your face, which is perfect for those with oily skin.
