We all want to be that girl who looks gorgeous without having a full face of makeup on. While many of us may not feel confident jumping straight out of bed and starting our day, there are many things you can do to achieve the no makeup look to show off your natural beauty!
Concealer is a magical product that can disguise even the most restless night’s sleep. Dab a little under your eyes to hide those bags, in order to look and feel wide awake. Any breakouts or discolouration you’re insecure about can be solved with concealer. It helps create the illusion that your skin is evenly toned and healthy. Concealer can give you the boost of confidence you need to step out of the house without a full face. Remember when using concealer by itself, a little goes a long way!
My personal favourite, mascara! This is a staple in my everyday no makeup look. Lengthening and enhancing your lashes makes your eyes look big and draws attention to them. To create an even more natural look, consider a mascara colour that is closer to your natural hair colour, such as a brown. Give your lashes a light curl and apply it on the ends of your lashes rather than the roots, you’ll look like you’re naturally blessed with the perfect lashes!
Serums & Oils
Skincare is a big part of looking naturally glowy. Using oils and serums helps create a natural highlighter that makes your skin look and feel healthy and radiant. Face serums are making waves in the beauty world, they are no longer just for mature skin. Vitamin C serums or hyaluronic acid serums help even and smooth your complexion and are easy skincare steps you can add to your routine. Follow up your serum by moisturizing and your skin will thank-you. You’ll never feel the need to wear makeup on a daily basis again!
I know there may be some of you who are rolling your eyes at this step right now, but it works. Water is boring, but the best no makeup look starts from within. Drinking plenty of water every day helps plump, and clear the skin whilst keeping it hydrated. Have a large water bottle with you at all times and set a goal with yourself to drink a certain number of bottles per day. Making a habit of drinking enough water every day can help you look and feel better from the inside out. You will have a permanent filter every day, no makeup needed!
If you wake up one morning and wish you had a little more colour, it’s bronzer to the rescue! Dust a little bit of bronzer around the perimeter of your face to add a flush of colour. Bringing back a bit of your summer tan instantly makes you feel more confident without wearing makeup. A light dust of bronzer also makes you look healthy and radiant. Bronzer still allows your natural skin to show through underneath, helping you love it instead of covering it up!
It’s the era of a good brow, so keeping them sharp is important. Give your brows a quick fill in with an eyebrow pencil to make them look a bit fuller. Enhancing your brows is an excellent way to draw attention to your face and particularly your eyes as they frame your face. After using your pencil, quickly brush through them with a spoolie brush and you are good to go!
