FoundationForget the glitz and glam, for this look you’re going to want to find a foundation that allows for a natural finish. We love Urban Decay Weightless Ultra Definition Liquid Makeup for its ability to balance luminosity, weightlessness and coverage. The demi-matte finish and light-diffusing spheres help blur out imperfections, leaving you with a foundation that perfectly matches your complexion.
ConcealerThe role of a good concealer is to touch up any blemishes or marks your foundation may have missed, leaving your skin looking clean, clear and smooth. Try Maybelline Fit Me Concealer for its oil-free formula that matches skin tones perfectly to deliver a more even complexion. Your skin will look perfect thanks to this natural coverage concealer.
BlushWhen it comes to natural-looking makeup, you’re going to want to be very selective with the shade of blush you choose. Opt for a colour that’s a hint lighter than your skin tone to allude to naturally blushed cheeks. We recommend NYX Professional Makeup High Definition Blush that delivers a touch of vibrant colour, but in a silky sheen so as not to draw too much attention. Its extra-lightweight formula also makes it the ideal choice for all-day wear.
EyeshadowWhile eyeshadow may sound like a strange choice for a look that’s supposed to be super-natural, using the right nude shade can actually accentuate a fresh-faced feel. L'Oreal Paris Makeup Designer Color Riche Les Ombres Eyeshadow Quad in Timeless Beige includes 4 perfectly matched nude shades in the form of metallic, matte, satin and glitter for whatever look you’re trying to achieve.
MascaraA simple swipe of mascara is all you need to maintain a “no-makeup” makeup look. Here, you’re not aiming for lengthy, volumised lashes, but rather a subtle coating that’ll open up your eyes. Try Lancôme Définicils Mascara that separates and coats eyelashes perfectly, for a natural-looking, even finish every time.
LipstickA tinted lip balm is all you need to draw just the right amount of attention to your kisser. Opt for a shade slightly brighter than your natural lip to maintain a fresh-faced appearance. We love Maybelline Baby Lips Moisturizing Balm in Peach Kiss for keeping lips hydrated for longer, and for its subtle hint of colour.
And just like that, you’re looking beautifully flushed with nowhere near as much effort as you once thought. With the right products, achieving the “no makeup” makeup look is easy-peasy and will have you opting for the natural glow more often than not!
