The Art Of 

No Makeup Makeup

No makeup makeup is not about following a fleeting trend or creating a specific look, it’s a way of life. It’s definitely not about taking the easy way out. Neither is it about trying to achieve an unrealistic ideal of perfection. To look like you woke up like this takes a serious amount of skill, effort, and products of the highest quality. But we promise the work is worth it.

Mis en place

Eye CreamPrepping and hydrating your skin before applying makeup serves a very important purpose, it ensures the canvas your makeup goes on is plump and smooth, making it easier to create a flawless finish. On clean skin, rehydrate with Malu Wilz Caviar Moisturizing Cream, whose highly concentrated hyaluronic acid boosts elasticity, and revive tired eyes with It's Skin Power 10 Formula GF Eye Cream. Let them soak into your skin before applying makeup.

Prime time

Often skipped, applying a primer, like the L'Oreal Paris Base Magique Primer, should be the first step in creating a natural base. Its purpose is two-fold, creating an even texture and giving your makeup a solid base to adhere to, making it last longer. Needing fewer touchups throughout the day is always a good thing.

Ace base

Nailing the natural look isn’t about using a whole lot of makeup, it’s using the right makeup, intelligently and efficiently. If you got lucky with splotch-free skin, use a foundation first. If you apply your foundation first, you'll find that you don't need to use as much concealer. Layer Faces Ultime Pro Second Skin Foundation and the L'Oreal Paris True Match Lumi Liquid Glow Illuminator with IsaDora’s Light Touch Concealer. If your dark circles (we’ve all had to deal with the consequences of a rough night) show through, a concealer palette like IsaDora’s ID CC Concealer in 32 Neutral, which has color correctors, will disguise them perfectly.

Game, set, match

Apply a light dusting of L'Oreal Paris True Match Super Blendable Powder to set makeup for all-day wear. Finish with a pop of Colorbar Mattillusion Blush in a flesh tone to instantly add life to your cheeks.

The eyes have it

Neutral EyeshadowStart with the brows. Every canvas needs a frame and your brows are it. Fill them in with the BeYu Catwalk Star Eyebrow Powder using an angled brush to create light, feathery strokes to mimic natural brow hair. Fill the arch first, follow through till the ends and then the start of your brows to get the most natural shape. The matte shades in the Faces Canada Ultime Pro Eyeshadow Palette Glimmer are everything you need to create a naturally defined eye. You don’t have to limit yourself to browns with the no makeup look. Taupe, pink/peach-infused neutrals give your eyes a boost of freshness. Add the finishing touch with a few generous coats of L'Oreal Paris Volume Million Lashes Mascara. The bright-eyed look never goes out of style.

Lip service

The last step to complete your natural-looking makeup look? Adding a tint of color to your lips. Shape and define your lips with the Isadora Sculpting Lipliner Wp in 20 Nude Blush and then fill them in L'Oreal Paris’s Color Riche Moist Matte Lipstick in a nude closest to your skin tone.
