How to Create "No Make-up" Make-up Look

Things you need

  • Moisturiser
  • Lip balm
  • Primer
  • Foundation (low to medium coverage)
  • Concealer (medium coverage) - optional
  • Contour/bronzer
  • Eye pencil (black/brown)
  • Brown eyeshadow
  • Eyebrow pencil
  • Nude pink blush
  • Highlighter
  • Tinted lip balm/nude lipstick
  • Setting spray
  • Damp beauty blender
  • A fluffy eyeshadow brush
  • Spoolie

Step by step to create the look

  • To start off, you need a moisturised skin. Apply the moisturiser of your choice all over your face and gently massage it into your skin.
  • Let the moisturiser get absorbed into your skin. Meanwhile, apply a lip balm on your lips.
  • Now apply a primer on your face. This will help to blur your pores and give you a smooth skin to work with.
  • Next, apply some foundation on your face and blend it into your skin using a damp beauty blender. Alternatively, you can also use a CC or a BB cream. Take your time to blend the foundation well into your skin.
  • Next, use a concealer to cover any blemishes or marks on your face. Blend the concealer using the same damp beauty blender. You can skip this altogether, if you don't feel the need to use a concealer.
  • Next apply a contour/bronzer ever so lightly, with the help of that same beauty blender and blend it well. This returns some colour to your face and gives it a natural look. Be very careful so as not to overdo the contour.
  • If you love some eyeshadow, using a fluffy brush apply the eyeshadow all over your lid and blend it well.
  • Now use an eye pencil to tightline your upper lash line. This will define your eyes and give the hint of eyeliner, without being quite obvious.
  • Using an eyebrow pencil, lightly fill in your brows and brush them thoroughly using a spoolie to blend it well and give a natural effect.
  • Take the blush and gently apply it on your cheekbones using a brush. Ensure that you use very less quantity so that it doesn't look fake, but you have a natural flush on your cheeks.
  • Dab your fingertip in a highlighter and apply it gently on your cheekbones and also on the tip and bridge of your nose. Blend well. It should be done gently so as to make it appear like a natural glow.
  • Lastly, apply a tinted lip balm on your lips or some nude brown lip shade to finish off the no make-up make-up look.
  • Spritz some setting spray on your face to set everything in place.
