On days when you're feeling low-key but still want to look your best, the "no makeup" makeup is the perfect look that will keep the emphasis on your gorgeous skin. Whether you're a newbie just getting into makeup, or a pro who's looking to "wow" on your next Zoom call, you can easily master this look with just a few quick and easy essentials!
1. Glowing skin prep
First, as with any makeup look, you’ve got to start with fresh, clean skin. When you’re starting with hydrated, supple skin, that’s already half the battle won. Our recommendation? After your usual skin care routine, apply the Heimish Artless Glow Base. This lightweight primer helps prep and smooth, leaving your skin soft and glowing all day.
2. Colour correct any redness
If you have skin that’s prone to redness, your inclination might be to reach for a heavier coverage foundation. But with the Dr. Jart Cicapair Re-Cover, you won't have to! This soothing colour-corrector will change from green-to-beige to help conceal any redness, while treating and protecting sensitive or stressed out skin.
3. For extra natural coverage
Steer clear of thick, full coverage foundations for this makeup look. Instead, reach for tinted moisturisers, BB and CC creams to give your skin some extra hydration and still allow some of your natural (and cute!) imperfections to shine through.
The Klairs Illuminating Supple BB Cream gives a natural, translucent finish, while brightening skin and preventing fine lines from appearing. Its coverage is easily buildable without any cakiness, and the formula is safe to use on all skin types, including sensitive skin.
4. Reduce shine with a powder
If you have normal to dry skin, you can always skip powder, or just apply some on your T-zone. However, if your skin is on the oilier side, you can lightly dust some powder to get rid of excess shine, and make sure your makeup stays in place the whole day.
Choose a product like the COSRX Perfect Sebum Centella Mineral Powder that can leave your skin looking velvety, not cakey. This super fine micro mineral powder contains centella and refreshing mint extract to create a smooth skin texture by eliminating excess sebum while maintaining moisture.
5. Add a pop of colour
Complete your look with a tinted balm to add a wash of colour to your lips! Flaunt a natural-looking pout with sheer colours such as Laneige Lip Glowy Balm Berry (baby pink), Grapefruit (light coral), or Peach (soft orange). These hydrating lip balms will leave the lips looking shiny, smooth and supple.
