Have you ever considered sporting a no-makeup look every once in a while? Wearing a lot of colors on your face can be a bit tiring at times since you have to think of a new look every time you go out of your house. What’s more, you will be buying makeup all the time too. Well, if you think that the no-makeup look is achieved without applying anything on your face, you might be surprised to find that it does require several products to achieve your desired results. As a matter of fact, these are the makeup essentials that you will need to create the no-makeup look.
If you want to achieve the “no-makeup” look, you will need to make your skin glow naturally. The best way to achieve this is to put more effort into your skin care and making sure that it is well-hydrated. One way to get this done is to massage a few drops of your choice of facial oil on your skin to help prime your skin for the light makeup that you are going to use.
You don’t really have to wear foundation when achieving that no-makeup look. You can start by exfoliating your skin first to remove excess skin cells on the top layer of your skin then apply sunscreen afterwards. Not only will this protect you from the harsh rays of the sun, but it will give your skin a natural glow to it.
Another secret to achieving that no-makeup look is to invest on the right makeup sponge such as the Beautyblender. Dampening this sponge will make it easier for makeup to adhere to the skin and evenly spread it out as well. It can also help remove excess makeup as well to give you the coverage you are looking for.
When it comes to hiding your blemishes without showing that you are wearing any of it on your skin, look for a concealer that has a small, flat brush as this makes it easier for you to spread the concealer better on your skin. If you have dark circles, on the other hand, simply pat the concealer using your fingers. To complete your look, apply a dusting of translucent powder on your T-zone and that’s it.
Getting that wide-awake look requires some cream eyeshadow that is close to your skin tone as much as possible. You can even go for one that has a bit of shimmer to it if you like. Make sure that you blend it all the way to your lash line, allowing it to fade as you near your brows.
Instead of using black eyeliner to make your eyes look dramatic, go for a brown pencil instead since it is less likely to be seen. Look for a brown matte shade that you can easily smudge under your eyes to make your eyes appear bigger.
Even when you are trying to achieve the no-makeup look, you can still apply mascara on your lashes to make them appear thicker and fuller. Start by wiggling the wand close to the roots of your lashes then work your way outwards. To make your pale lashes appear darker, apply a single coat from the roots to the tips.
The no-makeup look is a refreshing look to achieve if you want to go as bare as possible. The beauty of the no-makeup look is that you are still wearing layers of makeup that is not noticeable to others.
