How to Master the No Makeup Makeup Look
At The Beauty Editor, we're big fans of an all-out makeup look, there is something super creative about experimenting with makeup and trying new things. Having said that, we're also big into skincare and happy to play up the beauty of our complexion and our features without a blanket coverage of cosmetics. That's where a no makeup makeup look comes into its own. The idea is that you apply base just where you need it, a touch of contour to help make your natural bone structure pop, and natural tones that amplify your natural skintone - the hue your cheeks flush and the natural colour of your lips.
Below, we've rounded up the best no makeup makeup products so you can get the look at home...
Kevyn Aucoin The Sensual Skin Enhancer
We love this unique product. It's incredibly pigmented so you can use it to strategically cover blemishes, redness and pigmentation without completely covering your skin. A little goes a long way and if you do want to apply it all over you can simply buff it over the skin with a flat-topped brush.
Contouring doesn't have to be intense, a light sculpt with Huda Tantour can enhance your bone structure whilst still looking beautifully natural.
Highlighters can often be intensely shimmery and while we're here for that, sometimes you just want a pretty, natural sheen. That's where this Globalm comes in, you can apply it as you would regular highlighter and it will add a pretty dewy glow to your complexion.
Stila Eyes Are The Window Shadow Palette, €42
A soft blur of smoky shadow along the lashline can give the face life and play up your eyes, without it looking like you are wearing any makeup. Clever!
Kevyn Aucoin The Pure Powder Glow Blush, €40
Adding a pop of blush to your cheeks will liven up your complexion.
Iconic London Boom Lash Mascara
This buildable mascara can be applied to lightly define lashes or layered up to create an all-out lash look.
Finish with a slick of balm, this is tinted with vegetable pigment and gives a very subtle rosy glow to your lips.
