The “No Makeup” makeup look
Ever heard of the “No Makeup” makeup look? It is all about keeping your make-up routines in a slack while keeping you looking fresh. This type of makeup is your time saver and your money saver as well to keep you up with the summer. Creams and full force makeup is not a thing during summer here in the Philippines, pa-sweet lang dapat. This look makes the skin feel heavier and with all those heat, may even cause you those break-outs and clogged pores.
So what makes this look “no make-up”? The use of make-up essentials here is still put to use but only minimized. It delivers a fresh looking, bare-faced like illusion sans all the heavy creams, foundations, eye shadows. This is a time saver because it saves you hours at the mirror to give you that “natural you” look and money saver because you only need a handful of make-up stuff. Saves you frequent trips to your beauty store.
First , apply the sunscreen or primer/moisturiser with sunscreen. I personally love the Ponds Age Miracle Day Moisturiser Cell Regen Day Cream with SPF 15 PA++
Second is choose a skin-tone shade of powder foundation or press powder (powders are available with SPF out there) and use a large brush to apply this on the face. My personal fave is The Body Shop All in One Face Base in 05 and 06.
Then, let’s go to your eyebrows. Shade it with taupe or brown brow gel or pencil, but do it minimally, try feathery strokes to keep it natural. For the browgel and brow pencils, Maybelline and L’oreal has beautiful products to help you!
Next, onto your eyes. Mascara will do all the work to give you those big eyes you always wanted. Any mascara close to your heart will do!
You may put on eye liner (Sleek Makeup Eye Liner or Nars Larger Than Life Long-Wear Eyeliner in Via Veneto) but do it lightly, create a dot dot dot. Blush-on may or may be applied like lip and cheek tint is the best as it doesn’t wear off all day!
And finally, the lip balm, lipstick or lip gloss. Choose light colored lipstick shades, the colours closer to a natural lip color.
There you go, folks. To wrap up, what you only need for this makeup look are: primer or sunscreen, press powder, eyebrow pencil or gel, liner, mascara, cheek tint , lippies.
