Skin Care Blog Post - A No Foundation Kind of Day

Why load up on foundation when it's hot and sweaty outside? In the summer, let your face breath by wearing as little makeup as possible. In today's skin care blog post, I've a few steps that lets you wear as little products as possible and still look polished.

You in for breathable skin? Here is what you do for a no-foundation-kind-of-day:

Step 1

Wash your face and apply moisturizer.

Step 2

Dot concealer under your eyes and on dark spots and blemishes, then blend with a concealer brush or your finger tips.

Step 3

Apply a highlighter blush on the apples of your cheeks.
This gives you a sunny glow.

Step 4

Line eyes (optional) and apply mascara.

Step 5

Put on a lovely shade of gloss.

And you are done!

An easy, breazy everyday summer makeup that looks pleasing and feels great.


  1. so beautiful and natural make up!
    great <3

  2. looking great! :D


  3. You look lovely with the minimal makeup. Your summer makeup routine is very similar to what I do. :)

  4. Nice look, I've been doing the same thing although it kinda has me pondering why I bother wearing foundation in winter if my skin is good enough to go bare in summer lol

  5. Hi, I enjoyed your comment, thanks, you know just how to make my day.

    I have paid special attention to your pics, you have a naturally pretty face, so it is not difficult for a little make up to make you look stunning. Oh and when you smile like in the last pic, your whole face lights up. :)

    Thanks for dropping a line, it is always great to hear from you. I see your little one is now one year old. They grow so quickly, ours is going to school next year. We have a pre school class, we call grade R, just to get them ready for grade one.

    Time flies, and we are getting older every day. I turn 50 this year. It feels like I was in matric last year.

    Enjoy your day, and take care.

  6. Looking lovely dear! I like tinted moisturizer or bare minerals for the summer - nice and light!
