How to Pull Off The No Makeup Look
By Margaret McGriff |
From New York Fashion Week models barely wearing minimal makeup on the runways to celebrities going barefaced on Instagram, the no makeup trend is here to stay. Here’s what you need to pull this look off at home.
The Right Cleanser
A fresh face is a clean face so using the right cleanser for your skin is essential for pulling off this trend. Make sure the product you use targets your most pressing skin concerns. Dermalogica Clearing Skin Wash ($36) is perfect for those of you suffer from frequent breakouts. This foaming cleanser helps clear out all the excess oils and bacteria that cause acne. If dull skin is a problem, Burt’s Bees Brightening Daily Facial Cleanser ($10) uses Daisy extract to breathe life into dull skin and is clinically proven to brighten skin in just 4 weeks.
Dabbing concealer under the eyes brightens and covers up any imperfections for a flawless look. Peach and pink shades are best for covering dark circles while formulas with a yellow tone is best for hiding minor blemishes. MAC Studio Conceal and Correct Palette ($40) comes with four concealer and two corrector shades that can be used alone or together to match any complexion.
A Tinted Moisturizer
Skip the heavy foundations and use a tinted moisturizer that brings out your skin’s natural glow. Lancôme Bienfait Teinté Beauty Balm ($45) provides medium coverage in a lightweight and hydrating formula. It also provides just enough color for a naturally radiant complexion.
Applying eye shadow that closely matches your skin tone all over the lids and brow bone gives your eyes the natural color it needs. TooFaced Natural Eyes Palette ($36) comes with 9 shades in matte and shimmer finishes with rich pigments that are true to color.
Give your lashes a little boost with lengthening mascara like NARS Larger Than Live Mascara ($25). The high tech bristles grabs each lash and coat them with macadamia nut and vitamin E to naturally enhance them, leaving you with longer and very beautiful lashes.
A Pretty Nude Lipstick
Nude lip color is a big trend this year, wearing a color that not only compliments your skin but delivers smooth and supple lips. Bobbi Brown Creamy Matte Lip Color ($26) has a neutral color for just about every skin tone , from a warm beige to a peachy nude. The moisturizing formula keeps lips soft and the matte finish that lasts all day long.
