Your (Almost) No-Makeup Look Routine for Spring

Spread the love

Less is most definitely more when your skin is at its glowy, fresh-looking best. Show it off for spring with a gorgeous touch of color at the lips and healthy, beautifully shaped brows. The look is about as easy (and as chic) as it gets (and a romantic look for Valentine’s Day, if you’re feeling it).


Exfoliate for Glow (and Great Brows)

  1. Gently exfoliating every day makes a noticeable (smoother, softer, brighter) difference in your skin; the new GOOPGLOW jelly cleanser is the easiest way to implement this new habit because it feels so incredible. It’s springy and silky to the touch; the exfoliating orange peel and fruit extracts do their work gently enough that it’s fine to use with other exfoliators like AHA, BHA, or even vitamin C treatments. The jelly is also brilliant for brows. “We often forget that there’s precious skin under our brows that we need to take care of for optimal brow health,” says San Francisco brow guru Michele Holmes, the founder of Rye Beauty. “Waxy brow makeup and sebum can collect under brows, clogging pores. Sloughing off any dead surface cells or buildup keeps your brows clean and healthy.”

Supercharge with Vitamin C

Vitamin C is an instant skin-brightening magic trick that helps protect skin from environmental aggressors and pays off longer term, too. The issue with vitamin C is keeping it potent in order to deliver the amazing results because it quickly oxidizes in most formulas (even conventional ones loaded with preservatives). At goop, we’ve gotten around the potency problem by packaging our serum in two bottles: Before your first use, you shake the vial of pure vitamin C with a moisturizing hyaluronic acid serum, and the combination stays powerful for three months. Use it first thing every morning, and soon people will be asking you what you’ve been doing with your skin—why it’s so bright, smooth, even, and glowy.

Seal in Moisture

Moisturizer, face oil, and balm can help plump skin, smooth wrinkles temporarily, deeply nourish, and instantly refresh the look of your skin. You can layer formulas depending on your skin’s needs: Oily skin might need just a light lotion or a treatment oil, while super dry skin might do better with a combination of cream and oil. And in any form, moisturizing is great for brows, too. “I love to use Vintner’s Daughter oil to moisturize and soften brows right after a shower,” Holmes says. “Vintner’s is the best for skin—and for healthy-looking brows.”

Brush Up Your Brows

With your skin as glowy as it gets, focus on defining and grooming your brows (here’s how to pluck them if you need to). “Simply brushing your brows up in a soft, natural way makes you look younger, happier, and more awake,” says Holmes. And no matter what shape they’re in, it’s easy to enhance your brows with a bit of product: Gently brush brow gel in the direction of your hair growth and use a tinted pencil to fill in holes and add definition. “After my brow pencil or tinted brow gel, I smooth on my super nourishing Rye brow serum to lift and set the brows,” says Holmes. “The result is extra fluffy, naturally healthy-looking brows.”

A Chic Bit of Lip Color and You’re Good to Go

Clean, nourishing lip shades make all the difference in terms of keeping our lips looking and feeling their smooth, supple best. We’re obsessed with the universally flattering shades in Westman Atelier’s new all-nudes lip palette, all of which are made with jojoba and avocado oils, plus volume-boosting peptides. For a sheerer look, either of goop’s tinted lip balms (they come in a trio with a clear version, too) leaves lips soft and ultramoisturized for hours with botanical oils, pomegranate extract, and shea butter—and they’re just gorgeous.
