A guide to an impeccable minimal makeup look in summer
In most parts of India, the weather gets so hot and humid during the summer. Instead of using a lot of products, it's best to use multipurpose products like a Day Cream with SPF or a colour corrector CC cream to cover blemishes and even out skin tone. For any flawless makeup look, following a good skincare routine can do wonders. Follow these simple steps to prep your skin before applying makeup
- Start with an effective face wash like Avon Naturals Lime Cleanser, which is infused with Vitamin C to brighten skin tone.
- The next step is to use a toner, which helps to close the pores and leaves the skin feeling supple.
- After applying toner, use a hydrating day cream with SPF like Avon True Nutraeffects Day Cream, SPF 20. It nourishes skin while protecting against harmful sun rays.
In addition to following a good skincare routine, here's how you can make your makeup look flawless in summer.
Step 1 - Ace the base
When it comes to makeup, we win half the battle if the base is done right. The key is making your skin look as natural as possible. And, as makeup melts easily in summer, it's best to use a lasting foundation like Avon True Powerstay Foundation or a lightweight formula like Avon True Skin Goodness CC cream. The CC cream by Avon comes with a colour-correcting technology that instantly hides all imperfections and leaves skin feeling radiant and glowing. Plus, it contains SPF, which makes it an ideal pick for day summer looks. So, in short, it is an all-in-one solution for summer makeup looks. It conceals, protects and evens out skin tone.

Step 2 - Lock it in
For a sweatproof makeup look, using a pressed powder can help to set the base and avoid makeup from melting. Try using a mattifying powder like Avon True Color Flawless Mattifying Pressed Powder. The lightweight formula not only gives a luminous shine but also eliminates shine.
Step 3 - Highlight your eyes
To keep your eye makeup look simple yet striking, a voluminous mascara can do wonders. For long-lasting eye makeup, try Avon True Powerstay 24H Mascara, which offers 9x waterproof volume and lasts all day. To intensify the eyes further, highlight your eyes with black eyeliner. For an intense black eyeliner, try Avon True Powerstay Eyeliner in Carbon Black, which is smudge and waterproof.
Step 4 - Nude lips
When it comes to minimal makeup looks, one can never go wrong with nude lipsticks. To find your perfect nude shade, check out Avon True Color Perfectly Matte Nudes Lipstick, which offers nude shades to match Indian skin tones. Look for a shade that matches your skin tone to ace the minimal makeup look.
