Fresh Face Beauty: 5 Minutes To A Perfect "No Makeup Look"

There are many days that I want to have more of a natural appearance without going completely bare. It is on those days that I do the "no makeup look". Although I am wearing makeup, it yields a fresh, natural, clean, ultra femme look! This technique is perfect for those long days running errands, lunch dates with the besties, and even a movie night with the beau! 

Read on for the skinny!


Choose a creamy hydrating moisturizer: This is the only time I use a store-bought moisturizer. We are going to use this moisturizer as a base to create a tinted moisturizer. Using a moisturizer as a base will leave your face uber dewy, glowing, and hydrated. - I use Cetaphil Facial Moisturizer

Need a bit more coverage? Add a tiny dollop of concealer to the foundation + moisturizer mixture to help up the ante on the coverage. Only a tiny bit is needed!

Time to mix: Mix the ingredients together on the back of your hand until well blended.

Apply with a foundation brush; Apply thin layers of the tinted moisturizer evenly in a light upward motion. 

Skip the eyeliner use a thickening mascara! Place the wand near the lash-line and wiggle, wiggle, wiggle. This will make your lashes appear much thicker, and will also darken your lash-line giving you the appearance of open, brighter eyes.

Lightly fill in your eyebrows with a brow pencil and brow powder; don't overdo it on the brows, as this is usually a dead giveaway you are wearing makeup. When filling in your brows with a pencil, use light, short, strokes.

Line lips with a neutral liner; I used Flesh from Ulta. Flesh is my favorite nude liner to use!
Fill in lips with a taupey-nude lip gloss; I used MAC Plushglass in Wildly Lush.
