Pulling off the no-makeup look can be a little tricky. After all, it’s about making one appear wide-awake and chipper even if they’re anything but! It’s about adding the right finishing touches to tired skin or bleary eyes without letting the makeup be apparent on the face.
It’s tough. But, not impossible; not, if you follow these steps…
- Glowing, natural skin
Your no-makeup journey starts with a face that is already moisturized and supple. Use a hydrating face mask to get a natural-looking glowy skin.
- A smooth base!
A primer is the easiest way to get a smooth base for a minimal look. To look extra hydrated, use an illuminating primer; it will make your skin glow.
- It’s time for foundation!
Not a thick, full coverage foundation, though. You want something that allows your cute imperfections, like freckles and a little redness to shine through. Go for a BB or CC cream, or a tinted moisturizer.
- A lightweight concealer
We love freckles. They sure are what we like to call ‘pretty’ imperfections. Dark circles and blemishes, though? Not so much. To cover those up, a lightweight, hydrating concealer blended with fingers is what you need.
- A cream eyeshadow
Choose a shade as close as possible to your own skin tone. Whether to have a touch of shimmer or not, is completely your wish. Also, start blending the shadow from your lash line. The closer it gets to your brows, the more it should fade.
- Next up, flush!
Natural-looking fake flushed cheeks are exactly what you’d need next. Dab a little cream blush on your cheekbones, the temples, and the bridge of your nose. Ta-da! Your unpolished yet beautiful looking blushed look is all ready to gather compliments!
- Last step – Lips!
We arrive at last at the lips. For the perfect no make-up look, we’d recommend skipping a lipstick altogether. Instead, go with a tinted balm. Easy-peasy, don’t you think!
