No Makeup look
The trend is high where everyone is rushing off to buy makeup products that creates a no makeup look highlighting
a natural but still flawless canvas.
And I am no different as we all love a glowing fresh face.
Hey there Fabulous…
No Makeup look
So, don’t get me wrong. I love the fact that the beauty industry throws out these gorgeous products that makes our skin look and feel dreamy and airbrushed.
However, I am one of those who likes a no fuss easy natural makeup routine on most days
and then go the whole full face makeup for those special days.
Achieving this no makeup look entails presenting yourself as well groomed and put together
with the least amount of time, effort and products.
So ladies, lets’get this right because a hasty shortcut could go terribly wrong and you could
end up looking sleepy, tired and washed out.
First of all…Strive for the rule,
Wake up Gorgeous…Well, atleast we can try!:)))
My personal obsession with skincare tells me that products are only effective
at its’ maximum potential if applied to prepped and well cared skin.
So, achieving a successful no makeup look on a daily basis is
more consistent skincare than anything else.
Cleanse Makes Sense
Make sure to remove all traces of makeup before you go to bed.
I have heard this a million times but for most of us this is so easily said than done.
Remember, the best time for our skin to repair and regenerate is at night
so why hinder the process intentionally.
If you are too tired and really pinched for time after a long day, keep your cleansing wipes at
your bedside and give your face a quick cleanse. It is definitely better than doing nothing at all.
The continuous neglect of not cleansing your skin results in clogged pores and dull skin.
So please, save your skin unnecessary wrinkles, accelerated aging and a big bill for cover up products.
Try and buff your skin of old dead cells atleast once a week. Doing this on a regular basis
renews your skin and allows your products to glide on effortlessly
preventing you from wearing a ton of makeup. Don’t forget to do a lip scrub
to complete the process to luminous skin.
Skip heavy foundations on a daily basis and
opt for BB creams or tinted moisturisers that’s best suited for your skin type.
The light texture allows your skin to breathe while still providing coverage.
If you have freckles, the sheer application allows it to peep through capturing
and enhancing your natural beauty. Remember, these little details makes you, YOU.
So don’t hide them, enhance them!
Frame your face
Well groomed eyebrows defines your face shape.
Keep them neat by brushing them in place.
Ladies, no need for any fancy brushes, an old mascara brush can do the trick.
Curl curl curl
Skip mascara for the day and go for an eyelash curler instead.
This helps create an opened eye effect so that you do not look drained and short of a good nights’sleep.
Another great benefit is that you can go without over doing those multiple coats of mascara.
Blush for flush
If I had to use one makeup item to enhance a natural glow then that would be blush.
A soft sweep of the right tone can add a youthful radiance to your face.
My favourites are from the MAC range as they have a variety of shades and textures.
Thank you Stephanie Ive from MAC Gateway, she says MAC blushes are
brilliant because they go on smooth and last longer on the skin.
Go ahead and try it!
