The Best Products For The No-Makeup Makeup Look
This trick to mastering this look is getting your skincare routine right. Opting for hydrating products to make your skin as plump and glowy will ensure you need less makeup and can achieve that skin-like finish. It sounds easy enough, but you really do need to strike that balance between your skincare and makeup products to perfect that invisible, barely-there look.
No makeup makeup is also a great look to go for if you’re packing for a holiday or a staycation and need to be careful with how much you’re packing. If you’re looking for a steer on the best products to use for this clean, minimal makeup look, read on.
How to Create a Minimal, Dewy Makeup Look
Ultra VioletteQueen Screen Luminising Sun Serum SPF 50+, £36.00
Best SPF for Face
No beauty routine is complete without a hardworking SPF and Ultra Violette has done it again with its latest formula. This skinscreen protects your skin with SPF 50 and creates a luminous base, perfect for prepping your skin for a dewy makeup look.
NarsRadiant Creamy Concealer, £25.00
We all have blemishes and spots we don’t want on show, even when we’re channelling the simplest makeup looks. This NARS concealer is one of our favourites as it corrects, conceals and evens out our complexion. The radiant finish makes it look like real skin rather than makeup and it doesn’t look cakey overtime.
Rare BeautyPositive Light Tinted Moisturiser, £29.00
Best Tinted Moisturiser
This step is optional but if you want to use a tinted moisturiser, this is the one to go for. The formula feels like second skin and leaves a dewy, radiant finish. You can apply this with your fingers and allow the warmth of your hands to perfectly blend it in.
ChantecailleCheek Gelée, £43.00
Best Liquid Blsuh
We love liquid blushes not just for their natural finish, but also because they’re the perfect multitaskers and can be used on your eyes and lips. This formula from Chantecaille will hydrate your skin and create a gorgeous flushed look.
RMS BeautyBuriti Bronzer, £26.00
Best Cream Bronzer
RMS always has formulas that are easy to work with and are buildable. This featherlight cream bronzer gives a natural, sun kissed glow that blends into the skin seamlessly. Apply this along your cheekbones and the bridge of your nose, and you’ll look like you spent a few hours in the sun without the potential sunburn.
Anastasia Beverly HillsClear Brow Gel, £10.00
Best Brow Gel
If you like the look of naturally fluffy brows, this clear gel from Anastasia Beverly Hills will help shape and fix your brows in place. You can go about your day and not give your brows a second a thought (until someone compliments you on them!).
HourglassCaution Extreme Lash Mascara, £30.00
Best Everyday Mascara
It is a pain finding a good mascara, especially when you want to create a natural look. Often formulas are designed to give an overly dramatic look. This mascara offers beautiful long lashes, while looking natural and feeling completely weightless on your eyes, you won’t even know it’s there.
Hello SundayThe One For Your Lips - Fragrance Free Lip Balm: SPF 50, £5.00
Best Lip Balm
Lip balms are always a must-have and we all like to carry one in our bags. This clear lip balm locks in hydration and keeps dry, chapped lips at bay. It also has SPF 50 to ensure maximum sun protection and help prevent your lips from potentially burning – remember to keep reapplying though!
