No-Makeup Makeup

Hi Guys

During summer I don’t like to wear too much makeup so I go for an easy fast makeup that I call no-makeup makeup. Although there are variety of tutorial about it online I thought to share with you my own version.

During summer I always wear sunscreen under my makeup. It’s important to be safe and protect our skin during summer, even with makeup we all need some kind of sun-blocker to avoid any damage to our skin. Don’t ever skip the sunscreen.

After that I start with concealer. I used this SmashBox high definition concealer ( light ) under my eyes. I rub a little bit of the product between my fingers and apply it on my skin. It doesn’t matter if you blend it with your fingers or use a beauty blender as long as it looks smooth.

Then I use L’OREAL Nude Cushion (03 VANILLA) all over my face. When I bought this one I was not so sure about it but after using it for more than a month I’m happy with it. Although I still love the Dior Nude Air foundation and it’s still my all time favorite I have to admit that this L’OREAL one does a pretty good job considering that it’s really cheaper than the Dior. The only down side is the pad which is simply impossible to use because it’s to harsh on skin.


The next step is mascara. I use only one coat of mascara. But you can go ahead and add more if you think it looks better. For me the whole purpose of a no-makeup look is to keep it as minimum as possible. Dior Iconic is the only mascara I use.


Then I apply ta kind of pinky color ( number S03 ) from this eye shadow palette by UNE all over my eye lid. You can use any nude bright color which is lighter than your skin tone. It creates a fresh look while make your eyes center of attention.


Now it’s time to trim my eyebrows. As I said before this is a no-makeup look so I only use this dark brown shadow ( number S08 ) on the top end of my brows to define the shape. Since I have almost no makeup on my eyes dark brows would be too much so I won’t even fill my eyebrows.


then I use this home-made lip balm , that I made myself, on my chicks and lips. Here you can read about how to make this one at home.


This is the final look which I really like. It’s easy, fast and fresh.


What do you think about it? Is this something you go for?
