‘NO MAKEUP’ MAKEUP PICKS

I am usually all about full glam, but there are days I just want to wear the most minimal makeup I can and still feel ready for the day. I do have many makeup free days, but for those that I’m going out and still want to look a bit done but minimal, these are my favourites…

Firstly, the base is the most important part of the ‘no makeup’ makeup look for me. For this I switch between two primers, my trusty YSL Touche Eclat Blur Primer or the Benefit Porefessional, simply because one is for the ultimate dewy finish and one is for those days my pores don’t seem to back down. I love both for different reasons, but they are both equally as long lasting. To get a natural dewy base my go to is the Urban Decay One & Done Foundation, this is more of a fuller coverage BB cream. It gives the ‘your skin but better’ look, and is buildable. To conceal I opt for a full-ish coverage but lightweight dewy concealer, which is the Urban Decay Naked Skin Concealer. This is really great for those days you’re looking a little tired and need a refresh. For a cheaper alternative of the Urban Decay Foundation, I love the Bourjous Healthy Mix Serum Foundation, which is super lightweight but buildable buy amoxil no prescription just like the one from Urban Decay, this one is just a little bit dewier that is great for drier skin. To set I always use a loose powder so there is no cake, usually the Nars Loose Powder.

To add a little warmth to the face my favourite is the BECCA Cosmetics x Jaclyn Hill Champagne Collection Face Palette. The blush shade Amaretto, is the perfect shade to add a bronzed flush, so there’s no need for bronzer as this acts as a 2-in-1. And to highlight a little I love to mix the two highlight shades from the palette. That’s the base finished, I just add a little MAC Fix + to set.

For these ‘no makeup’ makeup days I go really light on the eyes with just mascara. My favourites for fluffy natural lashes are the Too Faced Better Than Sex and Ciate London’s Wonderwand Mascara. If I do want to add a little more I just go in with a light matte transition shade in the crease, such as Latte from Makeup Geek.

For the lips I like to go with a girly dusky pink, my absolute must have for this right now is Charlotte Tilbury’s Matte Revolution in Pillow Talk – it makes me feel so fab.

    That’s funny because the lipstick I’ve actually been looking to buy recently has been Pillow Talk! Not sure how it’ll look on my pale skintone though…
