No make up make up!

I’m absolutely OBSESSED with the ‘no make up make up’ look at the moment! Usually I’m the kind of person who feels bare without any eyeliner or highlighter on my face!

It takes so confidence to go kind of bare faced when you’re used to caking your face with so many products, your makeup drawer looks like a Sephora loot! But I think I’ve cracked it with a very simple formula!

Step A: Good cleanse + hydrating moisturiser = perfect skin – foundation

I pride myself on maintaining my skin an it’s the one thing I never go without doing! Ensuring you take your make up off beautifully before bed and then washing/ exfoliating/ cleansing your face and then applying a hydrating moisturiser, will make your skin shine without the need for moisturiser!

Step B: Concealer + Blending = natural beauty

Everyone has those imperfections which they can’t bare being seen with! For me it’s my dark circles which wearing glasses and contacts have given to me over time! Get yourself a nice creamy concealer and blend as flawlessly as you can to create skin that looks naturally clean! **Avoid putting concealer on scabs and dry patches because it looks blotchy! Try moisturising those areas to help them heal faster, instead :)

Step C: mascara + pencil liner / bright shadow = awake eyes

Your eyes should do the talking in the no make up equation, the reason being that there is no bright lip, or contoured cheek coming up. By using a lengthening and volumizing mascara which will feminise your face. Using a highlighter in your inner corners will make your eyes seem brighter and more awake and by using a pencil liner to rim the waterline, it will add a little drama to your eyes to make your eye colour stand out more. ** Instead of using a black liner, use a brown or soft colour instead as it won’t seem as harsh. Tight line the the top lash line too to make your lashes seem fuller.

Step D: Cream blush + lip liner = a completed gorgeous look!

Cream blusher will look more natural than a bright pint powder blush just because it blends better and looks like skin. It also adds a nice dewy finish to the skin thus, beautifying your flawless face more! Add a simple nude lip liner around your lips to define them an fill in with your lip balm to add a touch of shine and moisture!

In summary:

Good cleanse + hydrating moisturiser = perfect skin – foundation

Concealer + Blending = natural beauty

Mascara + pencil liner / bright shadow = awake eyes

Cream blush + lip liner = a completed gorgeous look!

  1. When I wasn’t around to do that, my clients walked around on their daily life with a few long lashes picking out from their natural ones. Showing greater results, are a lot of products sold in the market. Your lashes should be protected and they are a part of your eyes.
