My Take On The “No Makeup” Makeup Look

Lately I have really been loving a natural makeup look, it`s been what I have been wearing to class, for running errands or if I am going to do a bit of work at a coffee shop. The products I am sharing today are the ones that work for me but you can take the general outline of the product and use one similar that you already own.

  Base

For my base I start with a creamy liquid concealer, my go to is the Maybelline Afinitone. I dot this around where I need a bit of coverage or to even out my skin tone and blend it in using a Beauty Blender or just my fingers. Optional is a higher coverage concealer if you have any spots or discoloration that can`t be covered by your creamy concealer, the one I swear by is the Make Up For Ever Full Cover Concealer, amazing coverage and also really good staying power. Another optional step but one I still really enjoy is a cream bronzer/contour , it adds a bit of warmth and dimension to my currently very pale face.

Eyes

My one tip for looking put together with minimal effort is doing your eyebrows. I personally have really full brows already so I mostly need a gel to shape them and keep them in place, I like using this Essence Make Me Brow gel because it has a bit of tint as well so they look a bit more even. For the eyes I just use a bit of mascara, if you don`t want to look like you are wearing too much makeup go for a more natural lengthening mascara, personally I always love big lashes so I go for a volumizing formula instead (my favorite is the Maybelline Falsies).

Lips

For lips I like to keep it natural with a bit of balm especially now that it has gotten so cold here in Bucharest. My latest discovery is the Elizabeth Arden 8 Hour Cream, probably the best lip treatment I have tried and it actually gives a nice glossy look to the lips. You can also add a bit of tint with a nude lip liner or just go in with your favorite tinted lip balm.
