Not sure how to create a no makeup look? Here, we introduce you to the makeup products and tips you need to get that sought-after low key makeup look.
#1: Skip foundation, just use SPF
To secure a natural-looking complexion, go ahead and skip foundation altogether. Instead, apply a skin-soothing SPF like Bella Schneider Beauty's Oliofix Protect & Sooth SPF 33
Spot-conceal any blemishes or redness with a light concealer like Evelyn Iona's Natural & Organic Concealer
. Then, finish with a light dusting of translucent powder in areas you get oily and your base is good to go.
#3: Choose a cream eyeshadow
For eyes that look bright and wide-awake, apply a cream eye shadow in a shade that's close to your own skin tone. You can choose a shade with shimmer or not, depending on your taste. Try Terre Merre Cosmetics' Indelible Crème Eye Shadow in Spun Silk
, Gold Frost
, Tip Taup
e, or Bronze Frost
#4: Apply a coat of mascara
No makeup look is complete without mascara—even in a no-makeup makeup look. ABLE Cosmetics' No Mess'cara
is a smudge proof, volumizing, lifting & buildable mascara formula with a built-in mascara shield for a mess-free application.
#5: Blush up
Reach for a cream blush instead of powder to get a natural-looking glow. Start at the apple of your cheeks and blend back and upward toward your hairline, keeping most of the color in the front of your face for a youthful look. Try HAN Skin Care Cosmetics' Cheek & Lip Tint in Pink Peony
, which doubles as a blush and a cute, natural lip color.
#6: Emphasize your cheekbones with highlighter
A dab of cream highlighter on your cheekbones adds the perfect touch to your fresh complexion. Glam & Grace's Bold Cheeks Highlighting Stick in Starry Sky
is blendable, made with non-toxic ingredients, and perfect for your simple makeup routine.
#7: Swipe on a lip tint
The final step to your completed no-makeup makeup look is adding a tint of color to your lips. Try Kani Botanicals' Vixen Lip + Cheek Tint Balm
for a gorgeous natural flush. It's infused with Hibiscus, Sea Buckthorn, Beet Root and Mandarin to make it an antioxidant powerhouse.
