One of my favourite makeup looks is the no makeup makeup look; a very “me but polished look”. I probably spend way too much time playing around with how to look natural and put together, without looking like I’m wearing makeup. I’m serious obsessed with having a flawless looking base, so in this look, 4 of the 6 products are for my base. Basically, I’m happy as long as I have a good base.
As my based I use the Almay Smart Shade Primer, which I have just recently discovered. It takes down the redness in my skin, while evening out my complexion, I love that it feels like a serum, and not a primer. With that, I mix in a few drops of the MAC Pro Longwear Concealer, which is my holy grail concealer. I find that the pump for the pro longwear dispenses more product than I need to conceal, so this lets me even out my skin tone and not waste product. I then use the remaining concealer to conceal under my eyes, and anywhere that I need more coverage.
I set that with the MAC Skinfinish Natural in Medium using a dual fibre brush, which deposits a very light layer of powder. This is an old favourite that I rediscovered a couple months ago, and I love how well it sets everything, plus it adds a slight bit more coverage without looking cakey. For bronzer, I’m currently loving the Annabelle BB Bronzing Powder in Diva Bronze. I use this all over my face, and love the bronzed glow it gives my skin. I find that this is warm enough that I looking glowing and healthy, without using a blush on my cheeks. I also use this as an eyeshadow to define my crease; I like have a defined crease even when I’m not wearing any other eye makeup.
I use my L’Oreal Miss Manga Waterproof Mascara, which I’ve been loving recently. Finally, I apply my Pixi Shea Butter Lip Balm in Ripe Raspberry, which is super pigmented and hydrating. If I find that I need a little more colour on my cheeks, I will apply some of this, just to give me a little bit of glow.
So there you have it! A peek at my base heavy no makeup makeup look.
