Personally for me, the ‘no make’ make up look is without a doubt my go-to look, no matter what the occasion. I hate the feeling of being bogged down with a tonne of foundation and eyelashes that are masked in mascara. Sooo…if you’re anything like me then this is the make up look for you! It’s quick and simple to do so you don’t have to be a make up whizzz to create this look (I’m definitely not!)
To achieve as natural a look as possible it’s essential not to go overboard with the amount of each product you use. Using heavy products will simply leave you looking caked (so avoid full coverage foundation!) The Rimmel London Wake Me Up Foundation is light and illuminating leaving your skin looking naturally healthy and glowing. To conceal simply dab any blemishes lightly either with your finger or a concealer brush (avoid using excessive concealer under your eyes, again..cakey!)
A small touch of contour around the temples and the cheekbones will warm up your complexion and give your face some definition. For highlight, I have used Benefit’s ‘Watt’s Up!’. Benefit are known for their natural and minimalist beauty products and this cream highlight gives you a soft, natural glow without the added glitter…(I hate a highlight with glitter).
A soft warm brown colour in the crease to give your eyes some definition and a light cream colour in the inner corners to enhance is all you need! Finish off your eyes with mascara you know won’t clump but will give you longer and fuller looking lashes to make your eyes pop.
To define my brows I find a brow pencil gives the most natural look. Simply use the pencil to draw small hair-like lines in any gaps or lighter areas. Then use a brow mascara on top to set them in place, transparent or tinted depending on how defined you like them.
And last but not least, lips. For this look avoid any form of bold lipstick, pencils, the lot. A nude/pink-tinted balm or lip gloss does the job, giving you a natural, healthy sheen with the added colour for fuller more defined lips!
Products I used:
The majority of the products I’ve used are drugstore and relatively cheap in price! If you haven’t tried out the W7 products I would highly recommend you have a look, the W7 Honolulu Bronzer (£2.99) is such a dupe of Benefit’s Hoola Liquid Bronzer (£22.50)!
