Celebrity MUA Hacks to Create the Perfect ‘No-Makeup’ Makeup Looks for Summer

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 #1: Double Primer
When it comes to priming, one size rarely fits all! Customize your priming step by targeting specific skin concerns. Stop breakthrough shine in it’s tracks with the PÜR Make It Matte Oil Mattifying Primer Stick that instantly mattifies and smoothes the skin’s appearance for a shine-free makeup look that’s comfortable. Complete in an innovative stick component, this primer stick is perfect for mess-free application on-the-go. Simply apply this primer makeup to the t-zone, or any areas on your face that tend to get shinier, while priming the forehead, cheeks and chin with the 4-in-1 Correcting Primer Energize & Rescue. This must-have beauty tonic is packed with probiotics, aloe, caffeine and coconut water to help smooth and soothe skin, while also improving overall skin hydration.

Step #2: Longwear Foundation

We’ve all been there—settling for a foundation that matches our skin tone or leaves behind a beautiful finish but doesn’t perform well with the summer heat. Quit the complexion compromise with this new 4-in-1 Love Your Selfie™ Longwear Foundation & Concealer that instantly masks and blurs the look of imperfections in 100 true-to-you-shades. Whether you’re fresh off of a beach vacation or spending the summer indoors, this exclusive foundation comes in five skin tone categories and three universal undertones for the perfect match. Enriched with age-defying Ceretin® Complex and antioxidant-rich Energy Complex, that’s made from a signature blend of Green Tea, Ginseng and Vitamin B, this redefining complexion miracle is makeup you can feel good about.

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. For on-the-go makeup touch-ups, try the best-selling 4-in-1 Pressed Mineral Makeup Foundation that gives skin flawless mineral coverage, as it serves as an all-in-one foundation, concealer, powder and SPF 15.

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. Energy Complex, that’s made from a signature blend of Green Tea, Ginseng and Vitamin B, delivers good-for-your-skin nutrients in just one spritz! The result is a revitalized complexion with dewy shimmer that complements all skin types.

Step 5: Black Mascara
In the article, Oquendo shares that a black mascara is among the five makeup products that should always be kept in your makeup bag. This Fully Charged Mascara is Powered by Magnetic Technology to help lift, separate and define each lash for maximum, long-lasting performance. This revolutionary “magnetic” polymer matrix wraps a positively charged elastic veil around each lash, while conditioning ingredients help strengthen the eyelashes to prevent fall out. For an added boost, pair with the Fully Charged Mascara Primer that gives lashes high-definition volume and unbelievable lash length.

Kicking off the New Year means reevaluating your goals, picking up healthy habits and committing to achieving the life you crave.

    Antioxidants are the skin’s best friend and this multivitamin combines ginseng, vitamin B and green tea to help energize the skin’s metabolism and encourage natural skin renewal for a healthier-looking complexion.

With beauty products, what you formulate without is often just as important as what you formulate with, so breathe easy knowing this cruelty-free line formulates without:

  • Animal testing
    Innovative beauty should never be a burden on anyone, so these good-for-your makeup and skin care products are completely free of animal testing.

    Gluten sensitivity is common, so enjoy the makeup you love by choosing from PÜR’s several gluten free options.

    To eliminate any concern about talc being contaminated with asbestos, PÜR uses ingredients like mica instead.
  • Petroleum
    PÜR formulates with botanically derived ingredients, like jojoba oil and shea butter, to help moisturize the skin.
  • Mineral Oil
    Mineral Oil is a petroleum derived ingredient, so PÜR formulates with clean, botanical ingredients like argon oil, that are purified and good for your skin.

    Instead of formulating with sulfates, PÜR relies on gentle surfactants to help cleanse skin without disrupting its natural barrier.
