"This look is obviously easier to pull off if your complexion is already in good shape," says Los Angeles-based beauty expert Sarah Carillo, "so stay on top of your skin care regimen to minimize blemishes and fine lines."
This look doesn't require you to ditch makeup altogether—just to cut back a bit. Star by applying a pearly pink-hued highlighter under your brow bones; it's a subtle-yet-instant perk-me-up. Then use a finishing powder that softens the way light reflects off your skin. "You'll have a subtle glow, but it won't look like you're wearing anything," says Carillo.
