Apart from the fact that I barely have time to do serious makeup daily, I love the effortless look gotten when I have this no makeup, makeup look on. I decided to also try out the glossy lids trend I saw everywhere throughout 2017 and I actually regretted not trying it earlier. Like, its lip gloss, something every girl has in her makeup purse and it gives such a beautiful finish. This makeup look takes me no more than 5 minutes to complete (I actually timed myself) and I bet once you try it once, you’d probably want to use it everyday.
I recently started taking my skincare routine very seriously and have seen major improvements in my skin texture. I applied my Nivea moisturizer after washing my face but did not use a foundation for this look. This is to keep the look fairly simple and I usually run lots of errands during the day and foundation is not the best on a busy day.
If you plan on using a foundation to achieve this no makeup, makeup look, I recommend using one that is very light weight with good coverage but still lets your skin look like skin such as the Maybelline Fit me Foundation.
I start with filling in my brows with a brown pencil and then using a cotton bud to clean out the excesses. This gives the same effect as concealing the brows but without the extra layer of concealer. I also use the cotton bud to run across the brow to lighten it up and make it look natural.
After I take a drop of my Ushas golden glitter lip gloss and apply it on my eyelids. I then darken my waterline and use my mascara.
My golden lipgloss made me fall in love with the gloss lip all over again. I am literally obsessed and have thrown all my matte lipsticks to the bottom of my stash. I apply this on my lips and smack, smack, smack!
To seal up the look, I use the Zaron Mattifying powder all over my face. I love this powder because it has a very nice texture and doesn’t leave the face appearing powdery. After this I then use the Classic Mist & Fix Setting Spray to put the dewy in my look.
This is the last step but the most important for me as I love to glow from the inside out! I used my Sleek Highlight Palette and applied it on the arch of my brow and my tear duct area. I didn’t apply any highlighter to my cheekbones as I wanted to keep this look really simple and Voila this look was done.
This is a very easy no makeup, makeup look that can elevate your look in 5 minutes or less.
Are you guys going to try it out? Also have you guys used any of the products I mentioned, how was it?
