Hey everyone! Since it's officially the back-to-school season, I wanted to create a tutorial for a very quick, natural look that would be great for looking like yourself just better.
The "no makeup makeup" look has been very highly requested and I think the reason for that is because makeup itself can be a very intimidating concept, but everyone can appreciate the very basic steps from going bare-faced to naturally beautiful. The trick is thin layers, matte colors, and letting skin texture show through.
Check out the tutorial to get the no makeup look below!
I know it's really difficult to show on video and in photos, but one of the most important parts of the no-makeup look is to get the skin right. Skin naturally has texture from tiny hairs, pores, and wrinkles and if you layer thick foundation over it, it can be quite obvious in real life. Keep the foundation thin and near the center of the face, adding coverage with a spot concealer only where you need it.
Lashes are kept clean with just 1 coat of mascara. Eyeliner is the tricky step, being applied on the underside of lashes to give them a thicker look without actually being able to see the liner when the lids are closed.
Here you can see that the eyeshadow contouring is one shade darker than my skin and it just enhances the natural shadow of my eye socket. Keep this shade matte since shimmers and metallics will pull too much attention.
Overall, the look should be of no noticeable makeup, just your own natural glowing self. :) Hope you enjoyed the tutorial!
