It’s crazy to think that the makeup world is obsessed with makeup that looks like we aren’t wearing any. And although I love a bold makeup moment, the natural, dewy, off-duty model kind of look is my favorite for every day. The ‘no-makeup makeup’ look is an easy way to enhance your natural beauty and to look more rested and put together. With just a few steps and just a few products, you can achieve the perfect natural makeup look.
Now get your camera ready for that selfie!
When you think of any makeup look, the first thing that comes to mind is of course, the makeup. But when it comes to achieving an effortless looking ‘no-makeup makeup’ look, it all starts with the skin. It’s super important to start with clean skin and tons of hydration. After cleansing my skin (I love the Dermalogica Special Cleansing Gel), my go-to is the SkinCeuticals Hydrating B5 Gel. It’s a Hyaluronic Acid with vitamin B5, which restores moisture and brightens the skin. After allowing the gel to sink into my skin, I follow up with the Origins Original Skin Pore-Perfecting Cooling Primer. It has a cooling effect and does wonders in minimizing the appearance of pores and giving my skin a hydrated base. Now time for makeup! To keep my skin looking natural, I like to use a tinted moisturizer instead of a heavy foundation. I like the Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer because it’s lightweight and has just a hint of color to cover any uneveness in my skintone!
