7 Celebrity-Approved Minimal Makeup Looks to Try This Summer

Because less is more!
By the Beauty Beat Team

'Tis the season for less: shorter haircuts, smaller pieces of clothing, and less makeup. But this doesn't mean your summer looks should be ho-hum and boring. You can still make a gorgeous statement with less—and this applies to your makeup routine, too. Check out some celebrity-approved ways to wear minimal makeup and still slay with maximum intensity.

1. Gabbi Garcia

Fighting overly-shiny skin is a struggle when temps are high, so we won't blame you for rocking an all-matte base. That said, you can place your glow elsewhere—a quick swipe of bronze eyeshadow will instantly contour your peepers, while a nude lip gloss can add color and dimension to your pout.

Try: BYS Dusk Face Palette, P699

2. Gabs Gibbs

Nothing amps up a fresh face better than a bold lip, so always pack your favorite lip color (red is foolproof!) in case you need to look extra made-up.

3. Janella Salvador

Dotting a few fake freckles on your cheeks will instantly freshen up a post-beach glow. For more skin love, skip the concealer and let your natural flush show. Enhance it with more blush and bronzer as needed.

4. Elisse Joson

Contrary to popular belief, you can still wear glossy makeup in the summer. The secret is concentrating the slick on one area that isn't your T-zone, like the apples of your cheeks, so it can grab all the attention while the rest of your face stays shine-free.

5. Katarina Rodriguez

We know it's hard to stop yourself from applying highlighter everywhere, but a little restraint is needed for a believable and non-oily glow. Focus on the essential areas: the top of your cheekbones, cupid's bow, the inner corners of your eyes, and, if you're in a swimsuit, your shoulders and the center of your legs.

6. Isabelle Daza

For dinners and parties, wear a lightweight base that'll stay comfortable no matter the room temperature. For a romantic touch, skip the nude lip and opt for a deeper shade like rosy brown or dark mauve.

If you don't want a bright lip color to grab all the attention, match its color story with your blush to tie the look together.
