10 Hacks to Achieving the “No Makeup” Makeup Look
Isn’t it weird that we want to apply makeup but we want to appear like we’re not wearing makeup? Existential beauty crisis aside, the off-duty model, no makeup vibes are here to stay. This look directly goes against the typical “Instagram” beauty looks we see a lot of today — bold brows, full coverage foundation, winged liner, you know what I’m talking about. “No makeup” makeup is basically the bare minimum, focusing more on the steps of application than the number of products.
Listing down the best tips and tricks for this natural trend to get you there quick and easy.
1. Skin First
This look is all about glowing, natural skin. The easiest way to get that? Actually have glowy, natural skin. While not everyone has the amazing youthful glow of Amal Clooney or Jennifer Aniston, we know how to how fake it! Before embarking on this no makeup- makeup journey, indulge in some skin prep. Using a hydrating face mask before applying makeup makes sure the skin is already supple and moisturized.
2. Prime Time
When you’re going for a minimal look, a primer is the easiest way to get a smooth base and also make your makeup long lasting. You can cater your product choices to what kind of look you’re going for or your skin type. A pore filling primer will smooth and fill any pores without clogging them the way a thick foundation might. An illuminating primer will add that “lit from within” glow and make you look extra hydrated.
3. Go light on the coverage
Steer clear of thick, full coverage foundations for this look. Tinted moisturizers, BB and CC creams give your skin some extra hydration and still allow some of your freckles, redness, and imperfections to shine through. Apply with a buffing foundation brush to cover more, or with a sponge to keep the dewiness.
4. Lightweight concealer for Imperfections
If you’re still not used to letting your blemishes or dark circles go uncovered, use a lightweight, hydrating concealer. Blend with your fingers – the warmth of your skin makes the product melt right in!
5. Cream everything
Creams make everything just blend and sink right in, and it tends to look more natural than powders. After applying your foundation and concealer, blend a cream bronzer with a damp sponge. Set lightly with a powder bronzer if you’re worried about everything lasting all day or keep all the glowy goodness by locking in with a setting spray.
6. Dew is your friend
Adding a nice dewiness to the tops of the cheekbones can go a long way in making your face look natural but still glowy. Rather than going for a traditional shimmery highlighter, opt for a cream with a clear base. The texture of the product will also blend right in with all the other cream products on the face.
7. Blushy Look
There’s something about a natural, blushed look to the skin that is so gorgeous and unpolished. Get that look the easy way by adding a little bit of cream blush to the apples of the cheeks, up onto the temples, and right on the bridge of the nose.
8. Brush Up Brows
Enhance the beauty of your natural brows by simply using a brow gel with fibers and brushing them up and into place.
9. Light Mascara
The skin is the star of the show with this look, so it’s okay to go light on the lashes. Curl your lashes and apply brown mascara to the top and bottom lashes, or really go for the natural look and skip mascara altogether.
10. Pretty Lips
Luckily, there are products that give you that same look without the sticky hands. Hack your way to this look by applying any lipstick and blotting off the excess with a tissue.
