The Best Products For The No-Makeup Makeup Look

The Best No-Makeup Makeup Products | Space NK
From red carpets to social media, the no-makeup makeup look is all the rage right now. Rooted in the glass skin trend and our determination to streamline our routines, this dewy makeup look is about simplicity and enhancing your natural features. After two years going in and out of lockdowns and doing the bare minimum for our makeup, it’s no surprise that the no makeup makeup look has really come into its own.

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



Every.Single.Face Watery Lotion SPF 50, $37.70

Best SPF for Face
No beauty routine is complete without a hardworking SPF and Supergoop! has created the ultimate barely-there, lightweight formula that makes it easy to wear sunscreen everyday.



Radiant Creamy Concealer, $35.00

Best Concealer
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 Beauty

Positive Light Tinted Moisturiser, $37.50

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.



Cheek Gelée, $48.00

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.



Laguna Bronzing Cream, $47.00

Best Cream Bronzer
NARS 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 Hills

Clear Brow Gel, $13.00

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!).



Caution Extreme Lash Mascara, $40.00

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.


Ultra Violette

Sheen Screen Hydrating Lip Balm SPF 50, $10.50

Best Lip Balm with SPF
Lip balms are always a must-have and we all like to carry one in our bags. This Ultra Violette lip balm locks in hydration and keeps dry, chapped lips at bay, with a slight tint. It also has SPF 50 to ensure maximum sun protection and help prevent your lips from potentially burning – remember to keep reapplying though!



Ambient Lighting Powder, $62.50

Best Hightlighter for a Natural Glow
Hourglass always creates the best products for that healthy glow, and this one is no exception. The lightweight powder leaves a dreamy, healthy glow on the skin. Infused with micro pearls that play with the light whenever it hits your face, this powder is the easiest way to achieve the most natural glow.


Charlotte Tilbury

Airbrush Flawless Setting Spray, $26.00

Best Setting Spray
Start and finish your makeup routine with a liberal spritz of Charlotte Tilbury's iconic setting spray, one of our favourites for the summer. This will help set your makeup in place and make it last all day (and all night!), no matter what you're up to. We love keeping this in our to-go makeup bags to reapply throughout the day if we need a little touch up.
