Try This Easy Natural Everyday Makeup Look (That Never Feels Cakey)

We share our secrets for makeup that looks completely natural.

From time to time, our makeup routines may need a refresher. And we have the perfect everyday makeup look that can add pep to your step without making you feel like someone else or adding time to busy mornings.

Rather than a heavy foundation, opt for a softer, multifunctional primer lotion that includes SPF to help simplify your daily routine. A soft pink concealer helps smooth away dark circles, without creating an unnatural look beneath the eye.

Bronzer, applied to the areas where the sun would normally hit your skin, adds a sun-kissed glow. Dabs of blush and highlighter help soften and highlight cheekbones and the eyes, while a light hand with the brow pencil and shadow brings definition to the eyes without looking overdone.

Try some of these products to help you get the look.
