The no-makeup makeup look is, without a doubt, the most minimalistic way of looking gorgeous and fresh. We have been spotting celebrities ditching the dramatic, heavy-duty makeup for this effortlessly stunning look for every possible event. Yes, even for the red carpet.
If you are a makeup minimalist, we bet you are crushing over the barely-there makeup look too. What if we told you that you can achieve it with just three beauty products? And no, it doesn’t even include a foundation. That’s right. Take a look at the only three makeup products you need to get a no-makeup makeup look and an easy step-by-step guide to help you get started.
Step 01: Base
Product: Tone up cream
Skip the foundation and get a tone up cream for a natural-looking base. A tone up cream is a trending skincare product that was born in…you guessed it right; Korea. This Korean skin trend gives life to your no-makeup look by giving you a smooth base, sheer coverage and bright complexion. Plus, it also gives you an-oil free look (yay).
After you have cleansed and moisturised your face, take a dollop of the tone up cream and apply it on your face. We suggest using Pond's Instabright Tone Up Milk Cream which is infused with milk essence and vitamin B3 to instantly brighten dull skin and give you a perfect base for a no-makeup makeup look.
Step 02: Eyes
Once you apply a tone up cream evenly on your face, the next step is to define your eyes. Since you are ditching the liner, eyeshadow and any other eye makeup product, you can make your lashes the focus point of your look. Double-coat your lashes with mascara to get naturally fuller, darker and longer lashes without giving away the fact that you are wearing any makeup (wink).
Curl your lashes with an eyelash curler and apply mascara on both, upper and lower lashes. Wiggle the wand to separate the lashes and run it vertically along the lashes to enhance the length. Voila! Bomb lashes that look like you were born with it.
Step 03: Lips
Product: A tinted lip balm
Now, here’s why you need a tinted lip balm for a no-makeup makeup look. While you get a hint of colour on your lips with the most gorgeous sheen, you are also keeping your lips moisturised. But that’s not all. You can also pack it on the apple of your cheeks to get a natural flush that makes you look fresh as a daisy. One stone, two birds!
Simply get a tinted lip balm in a pink or peach shade and apply it on your lips. Also, dab some on your cheeks using your fingertips and blend to finish the look.
