The No-Makeup Illusion

This is how you master the technique.
January 26, 2017

Wanna look flawless without people noticing you have makeup on? Easy peasy! Just follow our tips and tricks to look absolutely magnificent – and as natural as ever – with very light makeup.

 

Conceal your imperfections

Hide your dark circles/ zits with just a little dab of concealer. It won’t be enough to actually make them disappear, but too much concealer will spoil the illusion of having no makeup at all!

 

The not-so-much foundation

Technically, it’s not even foundation. Just apply a light BB cream or any tinted lotion to moisturize and even out your skin tone.

 

Oily who?

If your skin is a bit shiny, you can simply use oil-absorbing powder using a brush. It’s best to apply it using circular motions.

 

Color up your cheeks!

You don’t want to look like a zombie, so you’d better add some blush. Warm pinks or peach cream blushes are very natural on the skin.

 

Lipstick or no lipstick?

No one will ever know if you’re wearing lipstick. You probably guessed; pick a color that matches exactly your lip color. Blend it with your finger on the center of your lips to make them look fuller.

 

Almost no mascara

Simply apply one or two coats of mascara on the tip of your top lashes. Try not to coat your lashes entirely; you don’t want them to look all spidery!
