How To Summer’s Easiest Makeup Look - Hailey Baldwin

All you need is five minutes

With such a busy social calendar this summer, you won’t want to waste precious time doing your makeup. Good news: All you need is five minutes up your sleeve, and these expert tips from Maybelline New York’s Makeup Director Nigel Stanislaus.

High-bling skin

Healthy-looking skin is the ultimate canvas. Your secret weapon? A great illuminator. “It can be added to foundation for a dewy finish or lightly dabbed on the high points of your face for an instant glow,” says Stanislaus. We love Maybelline New York Facestudio Master Strobing Liquid Illuminating Highlighter.

Foolproof flutter

Your brows and eyes are a powerful team. “Curl your lashes and apply mascara, focusing on the middle lashes to create that starburst look,” explains Stanislaus. “Keep lids clean or apply a subtle wash of nude eyeshadow, and groom your brows to create structure.” With a bold brow, apply a little concealer to the inner corner of the eyes and the side of the nose to bring focus to your eye makeup.

Beautifully blushing

Dramatic contouring has had its day – blush is back. “Layer bronzer on top of your blush for subtle definition,” Stanislaus advises. “Constantly step back from the mirror and assess the level of definition. You’re after a slightly sun-kissed look.” Product must-have: Yves Saint Laurent Kiss & Blush Vice Versa in 06 From Nude to Naked.
