To look effortlessly put together requires more product and time than some might assume. Being one of the biggest myths in the beauty world, the ‘no makeup’ makeup trend in fact requires a bevy of must-have products to achieve this look. It’s important to focus on particular elements of your makeup routine in order to enhance your natural beauty.
Natural, radiant glowing skin
Whether you are a makeup maven or a never-wear-makeup kind of girl, looking after your skin is a very important step of a beauty routine. Try a natural finish foundation like the Bobbi Brown Natural Finish Long Lasting Foundation SPF 15. This will ensure you have a light natural coverage that will still last you the whole day, but will also protect your skin from the suns harmful rays.
Bold statement brows
A bold brow screams confidence. Filling in the sparse areas will leave you with a more symmetrical appearance. With just a few brush strokes, well-groomed and full brows can completely transform your facial features and frame your face. It’s important to understand and find the shape of your brows. Knowing where they begin, where the arch naturally peaks and where the arch ends is important before filling them in. Use a brow pencil to then fill in sparse areas, using short and quick strokes that mimic little hairs.
Add a flush of colour to the apple of your cheeks with a cream blush. Avoid powders when mastering this makeup trend. If you can’t get your hands on a cream blush, don’t panic, most beauty products are multi-purpose. Did you know you could use your favourite lipstick as a blush colour? Just sweep your fingers across the lipstick to pick up a generous amount of product, rub the product between two fingers to melt the product and blend it into the apples of your cheeks.
Instead of swiping on a coat of sticky gloss, opt for a more natural wash of colour. Lip tints or lip stains are ideal when nailing the ‘no make-up’ makeup look. Try Benefit Cosmetics Benetint Cheek & Lip Stain, this product is no fuss with an easy applicator brush.
By changing these few steps in your normal beauty routine, you can effortlessly achieve a fresh and natural makeup look. It’s important to understand that makeup should always enhance your natural beauty, so why not show the world what you are blessed with.
