Nailing the "no makeup" makeup is ideal for my ladies who want minimal mirror time. The "no makeup" makeup beauty trend is all about creating a natural, fresh-faced look that appears as if you're not wearing any makeup at all BUT you are.
Prep your skin
The key to achieving the "no makeup" makeup look is to have a great canvas. Start with a clean, moisturized face.
Light coverage foundation
Instead of using a full-coverage foundation, opt for a lightweight foundation or tinted moisturizer like Ilia Skin Tint or It Cosmetics CC Cream to even out your skin tone. Both of these products have good-for-your-skin ingredients that are safe to use daily! Apply it with a damp sponge, kabuki brush, or your fingers for a more natural finish. The kabuki brush is truly a time saver and you won't get your hands messy. The kabuki is my personal fave. If you have any blemishes or dark circles, use a concealer to cover them up.
Add some color
Use a cream blush or a baked blush to add a natural flush to your cheeks. Apply it to the apples of your cheeks and blend upwards and outwards for a subtle look. You can also add some bronzer to your cheekbones, nose, and parameter of your face to create a sun-kissed look.
Define your features (Lips Lashes & Brows)
Lips: Opt for a lip balm or stain. I love how Revlon Balm Stain feels and it's budget friendly! Lashes: Apply a coat of mascara to your lashes to enhance your eyes. Check out Benefit's Roller Lash or a more affordable option Princess Lash. Brows: Use a brow pencil or powder to fill in your eyebrows and create a defined shape. FYI *eh um* I do offer services like lash lift & tint, henna brows, and nano powder brows that define features and take the fuss out of your routine!
Keep it simple, avoid heavy eyeliner, bold lip colors, or heavy contouring, as they can look too obvious. Also when trying to decide which items are worth the higher price tag - I would choose to spend more on the all over coverage like the Ilia Skin Tint or the IT CC Cream. These all over coverages will be sitting directly on your skin with great ingredients and has sun protectant.
By following these steps, you'll achieve a natural, fresh-faced look that will enhance your natural beauty. The "no makeup" makeup look is perfect for everyday wear or for those times when you want to look put-together but don't have the time or desire to wear a full face of makeup.
