Give Me 5: Perfect Complexion

There's a new makeup trend going around -- it's called No Makeup, but you're actually wearing makeup. Confusing we know. But basically it means having a flawless complexion.  We’re wrapping up our Give Me 5 series with our TCL Makeup Artist Julie Martin’s 5 tips for perfect summer skin.

1. Use a face serum to balance skin and hydrate
Clarins Double Serum: Anti-aging, tightens, brightens and hydrates. On hot humid summer days Julie says you can use this serum alone without a moisturizer.
 
2. Use a primer to even skin tone and texture.
Clarins SOS Primer: 6 different primers that address different needs. Julie says these primers are lightweight on the skin for summer. Once apply it evens and blurs the skin.
 
3. Use a glowy foundation
Clarins True Radiance SPF 15 Foundation: Julie says this is sheer and lightweight coverage with an SPF that offers a little more coverage than a BB cream. It's dewy sheer finish works perfect in hot summer weather because it looks like natural skin.
 
4. Make sure you don't put too much concealer on
No 7 Radiant Glow Undereye Concealer: You can buy this product at any drugstore. Julie says in the hot summer months use a concealer to brighten your eyes to get a natural skin finish.

5. Use spray tan in a can as your setting spray
Peta Jane Perfecting Tanning Mist: Julie says this backstage trick works great to not only set your makeup, but also gives you a soft glowing bronze.
