Ever looked at celebrities who look depressingly good without makeup? I have news for you a lot of the time it is makeup, it’s called the no makeup-makeup look ,it usually consists of more products than a full on glam look, however I have tried to use as little products as possible; to make this look affordable so you can look like a ‘naturally’ purdy girl. This look has been forecasted as being very much in for the summer seasons, it’s an easy holiday and festival look.
As seen at the SS15 Celine show.
- BB cream. Elizabeth Arden
- Concealer. MAC Studio Fix NC15.
- Taupe powder. MAC
- Highlighter. MAC Soft and gentle.
- Cream blusher. Sleek California.
- Mascara. Lancome Hypnose lash.
- Brow pencil. MAC Brunette.
- Lip balm.
To start off prep your face this is crucial you do not skip this step as this will make your skin look and feel fressshh! Exfoliate scrub those sins away, cleanse, tone and lastly moisturize.
Apply a bb cream or tinted moisturizer I use a duo fibre brush to blend it as I feel this really blends into the skin leaving no traces of makeup ever being there. Bb creams or tinted moisturizers are a lot more sheer and illuminating giving you a youthful look, ideal for mature skin.
Apply a light coat of concealer over your blemishes and under the eyes and under the brow bone this will brighten your eyes .
Apply a highlighter of your choice above the cheekbones and down the center of your nose, this will help make your face look radiant.
Comb through your brows and lightly feather on your brows using your favorite brow pencil to make them look more full, we do not want to create a scouse brow remember let’s keep it natural.
Apply a brown eyeliner (or a brow pencil) under the lower lash line and blend it out so it frames the eyes this will also make your eyes appear slightly bigger.
Lightly apply a contour colour preferably one that doesn’t have an orange undertone, to create a shadow underneath your cheek bones, this will exaggerate your cheekbones.
Dab on a teeny bit of cream blush on the apples of the cheek.
Add a few coats of mascara. And dab on some lip balm you should look like you were born with it!
I hope this helps anyone wanting to achieve this look for less.
