A polished "no foundation" look with eyes that pop is easier than you think

Summer’s just around the corner, and the temperatures are already heating up. One of the first routines to abbreviate during the warm weather season is your makeup routine. Whether you’re trying to shorten your prep time or want a dewy, hydrated, natural look, it’s always best to focus on your skin and your eyes.
With products as good as IT Cosmetics’ CC+ Cream, there’s no reason to stay loyal to foundation in the summer. CC cream, also known as color-correcting cream, has skin-loving ingredients as well as sunscreen and a hint of color, so you can treat your skin while blurring imperfections. Start your "no foundation" look with a duo of mist and moisturizer to make sure your skin is plumped to perfection.
For the eyes, groom your brows, brighten the tear duct area, and sweep on a few coats of mascara. You'll be finished in less than 10 minutes.

2. Prepare your skin for makeup by applying moisturizer with your fingers. Wait a few minutes before proceeding to make sure your skin has fully absorbed the product.
3. Apply primer to your face with your fingertips.
4. Even out your skin by applying CC cream with a buffing or foundation brush.
5. Fill in missing brow hairs with eyebrow gel. Use an angled brow brush for precision.
