Look made-up without make-up!
Look made-up with the no-make-up look! Of course, there’s a wee bit of make-up you need to wear. But we assure you that you will escape these cringeworthy words: You wear too much make up!
Isn’t that the best news ever?
This is for the women who:
– LOVE make-up
– want to look great without prominent make-up on your face
Do the following 10 steps each morning and you’re GOLD for the rest of the day! And it’s not too harsh on your wallet either!
Apply a primer on your face after your face wash and moisturizer to create a base for your make-up. Do this so that the make-up does not affect your skin directly and settles in well.
This is a tinted face cream. Foundations are way too harsh, therefore opt for a CC cream so that it hydrates your face and adds a bit of colour. There are shades available for different skin tones.
Dab the concealer on spots, pimples or indentations on your face with your fingertips and cover away.
Use this only to highlight certain areas of your face (the nose bridge or under the eyebrows). This helps highlight and contour the bare look we’re trying to achieve.
Never ever leave your eyelashes unattended! They need to be combed and kept pretty. Use the mascara when you want a no-loud-eye make-up look. It’s waterproof—so, it’s best for your sweaty sessions and the rains.
For a good nude matte finish, dab this cream under your eye. It instantly makes your eye softer and less puffy (if you’re sleepy). Hey . . . and it compliments your nose very well!
Instead of a compact press powder, use a loose powder to settle the make-up in, so that it doesn’t run down and form dirty creases. The loose powder also makes it look as though there’s no powder used at all—perfect to get rid of the PANCAKE look!
Define your face using a brown eyebrow pencil and the complimentary tiny brush. Even if you don’t do the rest of the make-up, do just this. This shapes your face . . . literally! The pencil shade should always be brown—avoid black—as it suits our skin tone well. And if you haven’t had the time to shape your eyebrows in a salon, don’t worry! The eyebrow pencil’s your answer!
Finally, apply the nude lipstick on a lip balm on your lips. It’s never too harsh and gives a great colour-no-colour.
Since we are talking nude—here’s a bonus product for your nails as well! Girls . . . people always first notice the nails (on both hands and feet). So, keep them clean and trimmed. Add this beautiful nude shade to your list!
