This month we’ve focused on creating a barefaced look using glo minerals products like Sheer Tint Base and Moisturizing Tint SPF 30. One important key to creating a gorgeous fresh faced look is prepping your skin correctly. Pairing the right skin care products with non-comedogenic makeup makes creating a natural, no-fuss look simple:

Step 1: Start with a brightening exfoliant like Brightening Polish. This facial scrub immediately brightens and refreshes skin by removing dead skin cells and debris to enhance the absorption of natural brighteners.

Step 2: Continue to bump up the brightness by applying 15% Vitamin C. Not only does this light-weight serum help transform your skin's clarity and reduce the appearance of fine lines but it also helps brighten your overall complexion.

Step 3: Maybe the most important step in prepping your skin for a barefaced look is applying a lightweight moisturizer. Oil Free Moisturizer or B5 Hydration are both great choices and will help create a soft, healthy canvas to work with. Just be sure to wait until the moisturizer is completely absorbed before beginning your makeup application.

Step 4: If you are looking for a dewy fresh-faced look, apply a small drop of Face Essence all over your face or just on your cheekbone adding a luminescent but natural glow.
