There are days when you want to look and feel your best without exerting too much effort, even though getting dolled up with a full face of foundation and bright red lips is fun. And that’s when a makeup-free look saves the day for you! The bare minimum of makeup is “no makeup,” which emphasizes the process of application over the actual materials used.
Read on to find out how to pull off this trend in 5 minutes, from advice on how to do it to the best no-makeup makeup look supplies for your makeup bag.
Step 1: Skin Prep
The key to this style is healthy-looking skin. You need a reliable skincare routine if you want to master the no-makeup look. Before wearing makeup, make sure the skin is already soft and moisturized by using a moisturizing face mask.
Choose a mattifying or dewy primer depending on your skin type to give your skin a soft and smooth appearance.
You may achieve the smooth look you want with the help of products like Classic Makeup’s Perfect Oil Mattifying Primer.
Step 2: Base
We advise skipping the foundation for a quick and easy no-makeup makeup appearance. For this look, stay away from heavy foundations with full coverage.
If you still want to add a thin layer of face makeup, opt for a foundation that can be applied without makeup and has sheer to light coverage. Maintain a natural-looking complexion and allow your skin’s texture pop. We recommend the Zaron Brown Skin Foundation.
The secret to beautiful no-makeup makeup is strategically concealing blemishes and brightening your face with concealer. Apply it to your imperfections and dark spots with a little, flat brush to disguise them. The concealer should then be dabbed beneath your eyes in a very small amount, and then blended with your fingertips for a natural look. We recommend the In My Skin Concealer from Nuban Beauty.
Use a moist sponge to mix a cream bronzer after using concealer and foundation. If you’re concerned that nothing will last all day, lightly bronze with a powder or lock in the dewy loveliness with a setting spray to keep everything in place.
Step 3: Blush & Highlight
Apply the slightest bit of blush to the apples of your cheeks to give your skin a natural flush. Apply a thin layer of a warm-toned blush across your nose as well if you want your no-makeup makeup to give you a sun-kissed complexion.
The quickest approach to give your complexion a glow is to lightly apply a highlighter to the high points of your face. Additionally, you can use the highlighter with your primer to achieve a dewy complexion and a natural-looking glow for your skin.
The E.L.F baked highlighter is a product that accomplishes this. It can be used as a highlighter and blush.
Step 4: Eyes
You must keep your eyes plain and nearly bare for no-makeup makeup. On your eyelids, apply a pink or cream makeup color and mix it with your fingers. Next, draw your waterline with a brown eyeliner to define your eyes without overdoing it. Apply a curling mascara to your lashes to give them some extra volume without seeming like you’re wearing falsies.
Step 5: Lips
The liner and gloss combination looks great on the lips. A lip gloss that closely resembles your natural lip color gives shine to the lips while highlighting the natural form of the lips with a light brown lip liner.
