We recognize the importance of looking your best both day and night. From the lightweight “no makeup” look you sport during the day. To the full glam “night out on the town” look you wear at night. The beauty experts at Godefroy will be giving you a rundown on how to transform your look from day to night without the hassle. Keep reading to learn more.

Makeup products depending on various skin types

Oily skin produces an excess amount of sebum that makes the skin appear shiny or greasy. Individuals with this skin type are prone to enlarged pores, blackheads, or acne blemishes. Look for makeup products that offer oil-control ingredients and mattifying properties to keep your skin balanced.

Dry skin produces fewer natural oils which causes it to appear dull, rough, and flaky. Individuals with this skin type may experience dehydration and irritation. For dry skin types, liquid makeup products will provide your skin with the necessary amount of moisture.

Combination skin contains both dry and oily areas specifically within the T-zone and cheeks. Individuals with this skin type can find that the skin changes throughout different seasons, hormone fluctuation, and other factors. For combination skin, look for makeup products that have a cream consistency or base. This will ensure a smooth application for the perfect balanced skin.

How to achieve the “no makeup” look

As summer is coming up, the idea of wearing a lot of makeup on a sunny day may sound miserable. If you like wearing makeup daily but dread the thought of having your makeup sweat or smudge off, the clean girl/natural aesthetic is still in! Wearing minimal makeup or looking like wearing no makeup is the perfect look for the summer. Here’s some suggestions to achieve this look:

· Instead of using a full coverage foundation, try using sheer skin tints or tinted moisturizers and since summer is coming up, try tinted moisturizers with SPF. · Instead of using brow pencils or gel, try our Instant Eyebrow Tint to give yourself a naturally looking brow without the appearance of packed products over the brow.

· Instead of using cream or powder blushes, try cheek stains to give that natural, sheer blush look.

· Try waterproof mascaras instead of regular mascara. Waterproof mascaras are known to help hold the curl of lashes. If you prefer wearing no mascara, but struggle to keep the curl of your lashes, Godefroy has got your back with our heated eyelash curler, the PermaCurl Pro.

Essential Makeup Tools or Products

· Brushes: I know there’s a lot of different kinds of brushes out there, and some can be overly expensive. In reality, you only need a few that you can use for several different steps of your makeup routine. The e.l.f Complexion Duo Brush is a perfect dual-sided, multi-use brush that can be used for foundation, concealer, bronzer, and eyeshadow. Godefroy’s Precision Eyebrow Brush is a dual-sided brush and spoolie that is perfect for fixing your brows and applying eyeshadows.

· Sponges and Powder Puffs: Sponges are the best for blending out liquid or cream products. There are many different shapes and sizes of sponges, but all serve the same purpose of giving you a smooth application. Powder puffs are perfect to set your undereyes to avoid any creases or you give a matte, smooth appearance.

· Eyelash curlers: If you want to make your eyes pop, curling your lashes is the way to go. Our PermaCurl Pro gives a dramatic curl that lasts all day, so you don’t have to worry about your lashes falling straight again.

First and foremost, your makeup will stay on for hours if you use a good primer, specifically a gripping primer like the MILK Hydro Grip primer! After applying your cream products, you will need a setting powder to have a smooth, long-lasting base. The Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Setting Powder is great for reducing shine and setting your base. Lastly, once you're done with all your powdered products to finish your base makeup, a setting spray is the finishing touch and the key to have your evening look stay. The ONE/SIZE On ‘Til Dawn Waterproof Setting Spray will give you a matte finish that will not have your makeup transfer or smudge off.

The best makeup looks are versatile and can be worn for any occasion. By identifying your ideal skin type, discovering the best makeup products and tools, you can minimize the hassle and curate a stress-free makeup routine that’s perfect for your busy life. This ensures that no matter where you may go you can trust you’ll always look and feel your best. Thanks for reading! Be sure to check out last week's blog: Best Beauty Tips for Women Over 50.
