Go nude

How to get the no-makeup makeup look

You can never get tired of it. It can make you look awesome all day long. It enhances your natural beauty. The no-makeup makeup trend is the best choice for the season and you can create your own version even if you don’t have perfect skin! Here is how to become a no makeup master:

Focus on the skin

You are about to focus on your face so you really need to make sure your skin is pampered and well taken care of. Before starting your routine, make sure you hydrate your skin and wait until your day cream is completely absorbed before you start your nude look magic. A well-hydrated skin will really help your makeup hold and last all day long!

Cover up

You want a natural skin tone so stay away from heavy coverage foundations. Choose a BB or CC cream that will blend ideally with your skin tone and, if you need to make some touch ups, just use a bit of concealer beforehand. If you really feel you need to use foundation, choose a light one that’s close to your skin tone. The secret here is in the blending, so use your fingertips and a nice brush that will massage everything into place with circular motions.

How about the eyes?

Your eyes and cheekbones will follow warm, earth tones that will give you a naturally healthy glow. A soft brown eyeshadow, only slightly darker than your skin tone, can be applied. You can also use a brown pencil instead, or play with both by blending them. Pay attention to your eyelashes, as this look relies on them on not being rich, full or long: Choose a neutral, brown shade that will just comb them through, giving them a nice, natural color.

Groom your brows

Are you one of the lucky few with naturally thick eyebrows? Then you will simply need a colorless brow gel. As for the rest of us, we can give our brows a natural shape by using special shadows in the same color as our brows.

Finally, Focus on your Lips

No-pigment lip gloss, a light brown lipstick or just a lip balm? Whatever suits your mood is fine, just don’t forget to treat your lips!

Tip

Go for a nude nail polish that will enhance your natural attitude and give you a nice, clean-cut look.
