Healthy-Glowy Makeup That
Looks Great on Everyone

Judging from her glowy, seemingly poreless complexion, you’d never know that model Georgia Fowler (above) flew in on a red-eye to make it to the G. Sport shoot. “She has great skin to begin with,” says LA-based makeup artist Nathan Hejl, who went for an effortless, no-makeup makeup look to go with the collection’s sleek leggings and elongating unitards, which hung on racks all around them. “It’s about enhancing everything, making you look more radiant and beautiful without specifically playing up a single feature.” We hung around the makeup area to watch Hejl at work—and got all of his tips for our favorite sort of makeup look: easy and natural.

The Skin

First Hejl smoothed on an illuminating primer to soften any imperfections and help keep the makeup fresh throughout the shoot. For drier skin, start with nourishing moisturizers to plump, smooth, and hydrate. As the primer melted beautifully into Fowler’s skin, he dabbed on sheer tinted moisturizer. “For a bright, dewy glow, I like cream formulas, all the way,” he says.

A Healthy Flush

Heji continued with creamy texture as he added a bit of pigment to the cheeks. “I like bit of cream blush at the apples of her cheeks,” he says. “Creams have more of a sheen, as opposed to a more mattifying
powder blush.”

Powder Where Needed

To avoid shine overload—or if he’s working on a client with especially oily skin—Hejl blots finishing powder around the nose, along the T-zone, and anywhere else that needs it. The idea is to look bathed in moonlight, as opposed to
all-out slick.

Define Your Eyes

This step is more about skin, once again, than it is about mascara and shadow (though Hejl definitely used a bit of both). After patting on concealer, Hejl sometimes applies eye cream on top. “If your concealer is on the drier side, you can always pat a tiny amount of eye cream over it to refresh your under-eyes. Or do this later in the day if the area is looking a little drab,” he suggests. On Fowler’s eyelids, he blended cream bronzer over barely there champagne cream eye shadow to create a sexy, summery warmth. “You don’t want it too gold, too pink, or too coppery,” he says. He layered a touch of the same bronzer onto the cheekbones and at the jawline for a sculpted effect and finished with lengthening mascara.

Emphasize Brows

Even though Fowler’s brows are naturally dark and sleekly shaped, Hejl filled them in a bit with pencil, using short, thin, almost dots with the pencil, rather than drawing thick lines. He shaped her arches with brow gel. “I back-combed the outer corner of the brow (where it’s thinner) with the gel to rough up the hair and make her brows look even thicker,” he explains. Pro tip: Whatever brow product you’re using, choose a color that’s a notch or so lighter than your hair color; brow pigment that’s too dark can look harsh and unnatural.

Go Old-School Sexy with Gloss

Hejl tinted Fowler’s lips with balm and shellacked lip gloss on top. “There’s something so sporty and gorgeous about glossy lips,” he says “They go perfectly with a fresh, dewy, hydrated look. If you don’t want full-on gloss, you can just dab on some balm for a bit of radiance. Either way, it’s easier to touch up throughout the day than matte lipstick is.”

Finish with More Glow

Hejl went over the tops of the cheekbones, bridge of the nose, chin, inner corner of the eyes, and Cupid’s bow with highlighter to bring more light to those areas. “A look like this one is beautiful and timeless,” he says. “You can do it in a short amount of time, yet it’s impactful. Fresh, alive skin is what we all strive for, no?”
