'No MakeUp' Look MakeUp

No Makeup make up look is majorly based on looking good, fixing your flaws and features without looking like you are over doing it. The aim is to look perfect as if you have no makeup on. This article is specifically dedicated to those of you who prefer to wear the most natural, basic, light, day-to-day makeup. Here are quick tips for achieving this.

For a seamless result, use either a BB cream, or mix you favorite foundation (liquid, cream or stick) with a face moisturizer. It doesn’t give a full coverage because, obviously, we are aiming for a natural look.  Buff it in your skin really well with a buffing brush so it gives a no-face-mask effect. If you have any breakouts, all you have to do is dip a small eyeshadow/concealer brush into the mixture you did for your face, and, very lightly, feather it on the problem area. Apply a little bit at a time. Nobody is going to judge you if you have any imperfections since you are aiming for a natural. Nobody’s ‘naturally’ perfect y’know  ;)
For under your eyes, use your concealer to highlight and hide,  patt gently with your fingers to make sure there is no trace of unblended concealer underneath and work it really well into your skin. This will erase the darkness around your eyes and make you look a little more awake.

If you have any discoloration or visible veins on your eyelid, all you have to do is pop on a creamy eyeshadow in a natural nude color (color will vary according to your natural skintone), and blend it well with your fingers all over your lid. Apply Mascara (again brown or black, each according to your preference), to your upper and lower lashes, but don’t over-do it to prevent clumping. We want a natural effect afterall. Instead of wiggling the brush into the roots, you can be fine with just brushing your lashes from roots to tips in a swift movement. You can leave off with transparent mascara if you like, but I do not prefer that since we want to enhance our features, yet with minimal applications.

This is optional. To add color to your cheeks with a natural effect, it is a great idea to use those 2-in-1 lip and cheek products (cream or liquid tint). Stipple it with your fingers on the apples of your cheeks in a tear drop shape starting off from your hairline on the sides of your face, towards your nose. Do not apply very close to your nose though, just end about half way through the width of your eyes. Layer bit by bit and do not apply a lot at once. The warmth of your fingers will help it settle and blend in well.
You can also use your regular powder blush, but be careful with that. Since you didn’t use any face powder and your face is a little bit damp, your powder blush may cling and stick over your face really well. So, dab lightly and apply bit by bit, again from your hairline towards the apples of your cheeks, until you are satisfied with the result. Do not use a shimmery blush since we want a natural flush, just as if you have been running  for a whole hour non-stop (minus the sweat of course, imagine that!)

With the same product used for your cheeks (that is if you used the cream or liquid tint), pat it on your lips. You can apply two shades. Start at the outer third of your lips with the darker shade and move inwards (just like your cheeks). Apply the lighter shade at the middle of your lips to give the illusion of larger, poutier and fuller lips.
You can also just apply a simple nude or natural pink lip gloss or lip balm as a quick and easy option.
