Five Minutes Flat

How to get a gorgeous summer glow—naturally

Makeup artist Kirsten Kjaer Weis grew up in Denmark, attended the prestigious Christian Chauveau School of Artistic Makeup in Paris, and now lives in New York where she runs her namesake beauty brand. Through her globetrotting experiences as a makeup artist, Weis found a new appreciation for simplicity. Not only are her products all-natural and certified organic, they’re also effortless to use. While the brand makes vegan brushes—perfect for layering for additional coverage or pigment—most of the cream foundations, highlighters, and bronzers are better applied by hand, letting the warmth of your fingers melt the product into your skin.

For those on the go, Kjaer Weiss has put together a fast, five-minute makeup routine using only six products. “A five-minute makeup look is perfect for end of the summer,” she says.

“Minimal foundation for glowing skin,  a pop of color on your cheeks and lips, and you’re ready to meet up with friends or squeeze in some last-minute travel. Let that sunkissed skin be seen.” —Kirsten Kjaer Weis
