When summer reaches its peak, the last thing we want to do is spend precious portions of our day applying heavy makeup only for it to melt off our faces when temperatures inevitably rise. It just isn't a practical use of our time. As such, we've been looking for ways to achieve a put-together makeup look with an effortless feel to it—and that requires just a few standout products. So who better to ask than some of the people who sport gorgeous and glowy natural-makeup looks every single day?
We have reached out to some of our favorite beauty influencers to find out which products they use to create their natural-makeup looks. From dewy skin and brushed-up brows to flushed cheeks and stained lips, between them, they've compiled the ultimate beauty edit. See their natural-makeup looks. Then shop all the products you need to re-create them for yourself.
Style Notes: Aïda always has one of the most beautiful natural-makeup looks we've seen. Handily, many of her products come from the same (incredibly affordable) brand, too. We especially love how Aïda creates a defined pout by using H&M's editor-adored lipstick pencil in tandem with a lighter matte cream.

Style Notes: For Chloe, much of her natural makeup look revolves around her skincare preparation. First, she works creams from Bobbi Brown into her complexion, followed by a spritz of Kiehl's Iris Extract Essence. Then, much of her focus consists of adding flush to her cheeks, structure to her brows, and a slick of mascara to her lengthy lashes.

Style Notes: Like Chloe, Amira kicks off her natural makeup look by ensuring her skin is deeply moisturised. Then, she uses Nars' Creamy Concealer in Custard to create a flawless base, on top of which blends her MAC cream blush and finishes with a sweep of Estée Lauder's industry-adored Bronze Goddess bronzer. A quick slick of mascara, then it's onto her lips. First, she applies a layer of Elizabeth Arden's Eight Hour Cream—a staple in many a makeup artists' kit. And finally, she completes her natural makeup with Nars' warm-toned gloss. Stunning.

Style Notes: As far as natural-makeup looks go, they don't come more streamlined than Hannah's. For her base, she uses Glossier's renowned Stretch Concealer, followed by Benefit's Hoola Bronzing Powder to add tone and glow to her complexion. Then it's onto her eyes, which she lines with a skinny feline flick. Simple but oh so effective.

Style Notes: When it comes to Karina, her natural makeup look is all about dew. She told us she uses a healthy amount of Nars's Sheer Glow Foundation for her base, which she follows with Nars's Creamy Concealer (another beauty-editor favorite). The rest of her look is relatively pared-back, save for her rosy pink lips.

Style Notes: Chloe's natural-makeup look boasts a beautiful lit-from-within glow thanks to her carefully selected layers. Yves Saint Laurent's Touche Éclat le Teint Foundation is known for its dewy, multifaceted finish, which Chloe then blends with Marc Jacobs's Accomplice Concealer, Glossier's iconic Cream Blush and RMS Beauty's cult highlighter. Parfait!
