Power of Three: So Fresh and So Clean

When it begins to heat up outside, forget about applying layers of makeup—it’s just going to melt off anyway. Instead, opt for one of our favorite summer looks: luminous skin and a punchy lip. The key is to really pare down your products so that they simply enhance your skin’s own natural radiance, which also, conveniently, lets bright lipstick take center stage. Best of all, you only need three products (and two minutes) to get this look. Check out below to find out exactly how.

Step 1: Jouer Luminizing Moisture Tint

This daily moisturizer is perfect for giving you just enough coverage without going overboard. What really sets it apart from other tinted moisturizers though is that it has the slightest touch of shimmer, which gives your skin an all-over healthy glow. Plus, it contains SPF 20, so you’re getting protection while getting pretty. Apply it to your entire face and be sure to really blend it in.

Step 2: Nars Orgasm Illuminator

Now that your skin is prepped, skip the blush and head straight for the highlighter. Dab a small amount of NARS Illuminator in Orgasm to the top portion of your cheekbones and lightly rub in for an instant luster. Drawing more light to this part of your face will make you look more awake — always a plus!

Step 3: Lipstick Queen Chinatown Glossy Pencil in Crime

All that’s left is to add an impact lip color. We’re in love with Lipstick Queen’s Chinatown Glossy Pencil in Crime, an extra hot pink. What’s nice about this jumbo-size crayon is that you don’t have to be super precise and it’s formulated with avocado oil so it glides on like a dream. Plus, the color is just so darn pretty, we can hardly contain ourselves.
