Don’t get me wrong I love makeup! but I have to say I don’t wear it every day. I need a quick routine that will make me look fresh and awake, without looking like I slapped on a ton of makeup -in the hope, no one notices I’m still half asleep- so today I wanted to share the products that are my essentials for the perfect, glowing no-makeup makeup look…
A natural finish concealer is a must, for under the eyes and on any redness, my top pick has to be the Nars Soft Matte Complete concealer. A creamy texture that’s lightweight with high coverage, and most importantly looks like skin. I use this under my eyes, around my nose and on any blemishes, I might have.
For Brows, I like them to look full and fluffy. My go-to brow gel is the Eyeko Brow Gel, with a slight tint it keeps the brows in place and tints the lighter hairs, making your brows appear fuller. Blush makes you look fresh and healthy, my favourite cream blush to bring some colour to my face has to be the Glossier Cloud Paint in the shade Beam. It’s a natural peachy/coral that blends seamlessly into the skin making you look naturally flushed. Also, the Glossier Balm Dot Com is a must-have lip balm for anyone, the cherry flavour adds a hint of colour to the lips and of course it tastes amazing too.
Probably the most important step in the whole routine, highlight. For a barely there make look I like a glossy finish highlighter. The Orfa Cosmetics Glazed Donut highlighter is just amazing! you can either be seen from space wearing this or use it lightly to achieve a dewy look. I apply this on the tops of my cheekbones, nose and inner corner of the eye. Finally to set the makeup I use the Urban Decay All Nighter setting spray.
