How To Ace The No-Makeup Makeup Look In 5 Easy Steps

2022 has been a year of bold and glamorous makeup looks. A classic red put, graphic eyeliners, shimmery eyeshadow or more, 2022 has seen its wild share of cool makeup trends. However, the one makeup trend that has constantly been a favourite in the beauty community is the No-makeup makeup look. This simple yet sophisticated look is the answer for all those days when you need to look put together but don’t have the time or energy for it. The no-makeup makeup look can be easy to wear and can be created with your basic makeup products. 

Here are the top tips for acing the no-makeup makeup look. 

1. Prep Your Skin

Good makeup begins with good skin care. If your skin is hydrated and healthy, makeup products sit better on your skin and look more natural instead of cakey or patchy. Especially for a look like the no-makeup makeup look, where you won’t be using too much makeup, having good skin can give you a healthy and radiant finish. To get good skin, make sure you’re exfoliating frequently. Exfoliation helps peel away dead skin cells, providing you with a layer of new and healthier cells. Exfoliate once or twice a week based on what products you use. Always follow with a good moisturiser and sunscreen after exfoliating. 

 2. Primer For Base

A primer can act as a good first step under your makeup. For people with oily skin, a good shine control primer can help regulate the oil so that the makeup doesn’t slip off your face. Primers also help fill your pores to give a more poreless look to your face. If you have dry skin, you can skip priming your skin as the makeup products will provide you with the required glow for this look. Instead, opt for a colour-correcting primer. Colour correction helps even out your skin tone and conceal any patches or red spots. 

3. Cream Over Powders

For a look like no-makeup makeup, using cream products is the way to go. Cream-based or liquid makeup products add an extra glow and gloss to your skin that looks naturally shiny and healthy. For a more composed look, add a hint of your favourite liquid blush to your foundation before using it on your face. This small trick can help make your foundation look more natural and flushed. Use a cream blush on the apples of your cheeks and bring it to the bridge of your nose for that sun-kissed effect. Use a liquid highlighter instead of a powder one. Powders mask your natural skin and might look too much. A liquid highlighter gives you all the benefits of a gloss while looking real. 

4. Say No To Foundations

This step might be a personal preference, but skipping the foundation can be the right way to go when it comes to no-makeup makeup. Foundations can be full coverage and completely hide your skin’s tone and texture. Instead, opt for a lighter skin tint. A skin tint contains some colour that helps bring your face together without hiding your features like a foundation. Skin tints are more buildable when paired with a good concealer. Use a strategic concealer placement method to ensure your skin looks naturally flawless. 

5. Brows And Lashes

Don’t forget to do your brows and lashes just because it is a no-makeup look. Use a liquid brow setter gel to make your brows stay in place. Nobody likes droopy eyebrows, brushing them can make all the difference and enhance your features. Your brows frame your face and can make or break your look. For your eyes, go for volumizing mascara. It adds more volume to your real lashes without looking fake or overdone like false lashes.
