Springtime is all about looking fresh and glowy. With the warmer months ahead, it’s time to ditch your full coverage foundations and opt for a lighter base paired with products that help give you that no-makeup makeup look. To help you achieve this look, we’ve put together our top tips on how you can easily achieve a no-makeup makeup look in five simple steps.
A Natural Base
Starting with your base, the key to a naturally glowing complexion is to prep your skin well before applying your base makeup. Opt for a hydrating face mask if your skin is feeling parched and make sure to moisturise well. Instead of a full coverage foundation, try using a skin tint or a tinted moisturiser to give you a lighter and more natural finish.
Add a bit of colour to your lips with a lip tint or tinted lip balm, or even a natural lipstick crayon. Try our Haul of Fame INIKA’s Certified Organic Lipstick Crayon, in the shade Deep Plum, for a gorgeous pop of colour. This lipstick crayon gives you the lush colour, smooth texture and softness of a lipstick plus the longevity, definition and convenience of a lipliner.
You can also use it with the Organic Double Pencil Sharpener Duo for absolute precision each time you use the lipstick crayon. Use the lipstick crayon alone or top it off with a lip gloss for extra shine.
Brush Up Your Brows
Next, groom and define your brows. You can simply brush your brows upwards for a soft and natural finish. If you want to enhance the look of your brows, use a brow pencil to draw hair like strokes in sparse areas and to add definition. Then use a brow gel to help set your brows, leaving you with naturally fluffy yet defined brows.
For a natural eye makeup look, skip the eyeliner and apply a few coats of mascara to define your eyes. Don’t forget to curl your lashes with an eyelash curler to open up your eyes and make them look more awake.
A Dewy Glow
No makeup look is complete without adding a bit of glow to your complexion, especially in the warmer months ahead. Grab your favourite highlighter and add a bit of dewiness on the top of your cheekbones. For a natural dewy look, opt for a cream highlighter as creams blend seamlessly and sinks right into the skin. Plus, they tend to look a lot more natural than traditional powders.
Follow these five simple steps and you can easily flaunt a natural and dewy no-makeup makeup look all spring and summer long!
