“No makeup” Makeup look

Makeup blush

I’m not one of those girls that like to use tons of makeup. My favorite look has a natural result, even though I love to apply different products. I will tell you how I achieve my “no makeup” makeup look. I am very happy with this look. 

Making sure the products match your skin tone

The most important thing if you want to achieve a natural result when it comes to makeup, is to make sure the color of the product actually matches your skin tone. This can sometimes be hard, but if you need help I would advise you to just ask the (hopefully) lovely lady in the shop to try some colors on you.

When you find your perfect match, the result will be so much better. My favorite makeup product to achieve this look is a bb cream. It melts into your skin and gives you a healthy glow. There are types with SPF as well, who I strongly advise you to wear especially during the summer. If you are interested in learning how you can get a really nice glow, you can read about that HERE.

Trying and failing – and learning

When I first started playing around with this type of makeup look, I made several mistakes. But now I finally have achieved something I’m happy with. If you want some more tips you can read those HERE. I have mentioned to you already that the bb cream is my favorite when it comes to getting a natural result… But I love using a mattifying powder in my t-zone as well.

I tend to get a bit oily in my skin during the day, but this powder helps me keep that in check. Remember to not use too much, and only where you need it. In my eyes, I normally just use some simple mascara. I love those mascaras that just really elongates your lashes. My final trick is to take a bit of blush in my cheeks, to give my face a bit of life. Also, remember to brush your brows with a bit of clear brow gel. And that is my recipe for the perfect “no makeup” makeup look.

Makeup should be fun

The number one rule when it comes to makeup is that there are no rules. That is something that I truly love about playing around with makeup. It’s never wrong. Do you want a super natural look, a “no makeup” makeup look… One that I normally prefer? Or do you want to go for a crazy eyeshadow and colorful lips? Strong contouring? That’s amazing as well!

I love that it allows us to show our personalities, and accent our moods. At the same time, I just want to mention that there is no shame in wearing no makeup at all, as well. Those who prefer that are as beautiful as those who want to wear some or a lot. No matter what you choose, you are beautiful. And the only limit to what you can do is your fantasy!
