The best way to achieve that lit-from-within glow is to go easy on layering on foundation. The point is not to mask the skin anyway. Instead, maximize the use of skin-correcting products and finish with illuminator. “I just applied color corrector undernearth McKenzie’s eyes,” says Pamm. “I love her freckles, so I opted not to cover them for this look; I used very little foundation.”

WAVE AFTER WAVE
Nothing encapsulates summer beauty quite like full-bodied, just-came-from-the-beach locks. For that natural textured finish, work sea salt spray into damp hair starting at mid-length sections and working your way to the ends.
THE PERFECT FLUSH
The next best thing to the no-makeup look is a luminous blush. Don’t be afraid to use the same shade of rosy peach all throughout for one beauty look. The key is to break down the look by using shimmery eye shadow with matte lipstick or vice versa.
Candy apple is the freshest new take on the classic red lip color. To perfectly complement sun-kissed complexion, opt for cool-toned or blue-red lipstick. A bonus is that this also makes teeth look whiter.
