Doing your makeup in the summertime can be daunting. You have to achieve that perfect balance between your usual routine and what feels comfortable given the weather. Thankfully, you don't have to figure it out on our own, because Solenn Heussaff just shared her entire makeup routine that's perfect for the season.

On her YouTube channel, the trained makeup artist reveals her foundation-free base combo, an easy eye makeup look, plus other ways to achieve a glowing complexion without sweating it off.

Watch the video below: 

1. Ditch the foundation 

Instead of using foundation, Solenn resorted to tinted moisturizers (a.k.a. moisturisers that come with a light tint). “It just makes my [complexion] even but doesn’t cover up my freckles,” explains Solenn. She uses two shades; a darker color for her entire face and a lighter shade to brighten and highlight her T-zone.

2. Use cream and liquid products 

To achieve the “dewy” effect, Solenn foregoes using powders (and even setting her makeup with a face powder) to let her skin’s natural glow peek through. “The dewiness is what makes [the look] fresh,” explains Solenn. Hence, she swaps her powder blushes with cream blushers and bronzers with liquid formulas. But if you have oily skin, Solenn advises to set the areas where you put concealer on like your under eyes with powder.

3. Use your bronzer as an eye shadow 

When applying your bronzer, don't stop at your cheeks—apply it on your lids, too. This gives the face an all-over glow, mimicking how your skin looks after a beach trip!
