No makeup makeup is all the rage this season. What is it you ask? Well, in short, it’s make up to make you look like you’re not wearing anything! Kind of like an au-naturals you, but a bit more polished. Better yet, it’s so so easy to recreate on yourself. Don’t believe us? Here’s how it’s done.
Start by applying a lightweight foundation or BB Cream. Steph here is using the L’Oreal Nude Magique Eau de Teint Foundation due to it’s water-like consistency and added SPF 18 benefits. When applying the foundation Steph opted to use her fingers to ensure the product was blended right into her skin, giving her a natural, flawless finish.
Next, Steph is using the Clinique Line Smoothing Concealer to help brighten any under eye circles, as well as disguise any blemishes or dark spots. The technique to creating a no makeup look is simple: less is more, especially when it comes to concealer. No one is born perfect, so it’s good to let a few imperfections shine through!
The next step is to add colour to the face to help give it some dimension. To do this, Steph is using a combination of both bronzer and blusher. First, she applies the MAC Bronzing Powder in ‘Matte Bronze’ to the contours of the cheeks, the neck, and the temples. A light dusting of this bronzer will help warm up the complexion as well as create natural shadows on the skin. For a pop of colour apply the Rimmel Stay Blushed cream blush in ‘Apricot Glow’ to the apples of the cheeks.
This step is optional, but for those that love a fuller looking brow, gently fill in any gaps using the W7 Super Brows Super Definition Eyebrow Pencil. Once you’re happy with the shape, brush them through for a natural effect.
What’s a makeup look with a bit of mascara? Again, to keep this all looking really natural, Steph is using the Maybelline Stretch & Define Mascara in brown, as it’s a lot less full on than black. Apply just one light coating of mascara to your top lashes to give a slight lift to the look.
And finally, finish off the look with a natural tinted lip balm. For this, Steph is using a Rodial Glamstick in the shade ‘Bite’. Not only do the Rodial Glamsticks look amazing, but they’re also great at adding moisture to the lips, which is perfect for those hot summer days!
