Harness your natural beauty with these four steps from Jeunesse.
Beauty gurus everywhere are talking about making the no-makeup look an effortless part of your routine. This simple concept helps you save time in the morning and look less made up, while revealing a more radiant complexion. But how can you tailor this look for yourself and your personal skin concerns? Whether you have aging, damaged or sensitive skin, Jeunesse Global is here with a few simple suggestions to help you create your own “5-minute face.”
1. Start with Skin Care
Skin care is a complicated business, considering the wealth of products out there. But the two most important considerations when adding products to your routine – especially if your main concern is fine lines and wrinkles – are hydration and protection
Hydration is vital for protecting your skin barrier, plumping the skin and smoothing any rough patches. Additionally, protecting your skin with sunscreen in the morning helps prevent damage from UV rays, and a repair cream in the evening aids in slowing down the aging process.
Each of the products in the Youth Enhancement System from Jeunesse works in a unique and specialized way. Luminesce Daily Moisturizing Complex nourishes and protects your radiant glow all day, every day, and Luminesce Advanced Night Repair restores luminosity while you sleep, reducing the appearance of fine dehydration lines for a more youthful-looking appearance.
Taking measures like this in your regular skin care routine can help your skin stay healthy for years. Plus, with these steps in place, you’ll be able to start each morning with a smooth canvas.
2. Prep and Prime
Since you won’t apply as much makeup with this look, make sure the products you’re using sit on the skin well and have staying power. The lightweight, skin-loving NV Primer from Jeunesse can ensure your makeup survives the busy work day and then some. One misting of the entire face is all it takes, and you’re set.
3. Scale Back Your Steps
While perfecting your ideal skin care routine, you might notice your skin appears to be evening out, and the fine lines around and under your eyes are becoming a little less noticeable – so don’t pack on product where it’s not needed. Go without concealer for a day, or apply one layer of foundation instead of two. You might find you don’t need as much product, and you’ll feel more confident showing off your own skin.
That’s the secret behind the no-makeup look: Use the amount of product that makes you feel confident and prepared for the day while allowing your natural beauty to shine through.
If you find you’re more comfortable with full coverage, don’t worry. The multipurpose NV BB Perfecting Mist Foundation from Jeunesse delivers what you need: light, medium or full coverage, so you can customize your makeup to how you’re feeling on any given day. And, with its misting effect, it takes seconds to apply whatever coverage you choose. Skip the messy, cakey or clumpy results.
4. The Finishing Touches
Once you’ve applied a base and you’re comfortable with the amount of coverage, finish up the look with your makeup essentials. Of course, this can vary considerably from person to person. The choice really is up to you.
Our favorite way to finish up the no-makeup look is to bring the focus back to your skin, and nothing looks better than a radiant complexion. A light mist of NV Bronzer from Jeunesse is the perfect touch for luminous skin, giving you a glowing, healthy look. We love it because it makes achieving this look effortless. Simply apply NV Bronzer to the back of your hand and, with an NV Puff, a finger or brush, dab it onto the desired areas. If a bronzed highlight is not your style, mist it all over to amp up the glow, and you’re good to go!
Instead of spending too much time on a painstaking application, the 5-minute face routine lets you focus on the part that matters most — taking care of your skin.
