In the past decade, the world has been introduced to many different beauty looks. From sexy to dark and edgy, the norm as to how people do their daily makeup routine is changing. Currently, the 2022 trend is creating clean or minimal makeup to show off natural beauty.
Everyone wishes they could have flawless skin and look fresh without even a hint of makeup on their face. This brings us to the current beauty trend of the “no-makeup makeup look” taking the world by storm.
The no-makeup makeup look consists of minimal foundation, concealer, or powder. It focuses on enhancing natural features instead of covering the flaws. It is a lightweight look that leaves your skin fresh and radiant.
7 Ways to Achieve a No-Makeup Look
Regular makeup makes you look beautiful and gives you all the confidence you need to have a thriving day, but the no-makeup makeup look gives you the same—perhaps even more—confidence. Here are some ways to achieve a “no-makeup look.”
- Start with a good skincare routine
First, if you want your skin to look flawless without makeup, you need to have a good skincare routine. Moisturize using products specifically formulated for your skin type, and always apply sunscreen before heading outdoors.
Why is skincare important in achieving glass skin? Using the right products for your skin type, cleansing regularly, and exfoliating when needed is essential in removing dead skin cells, unclogging pores, and getting rid of excess dirt and oil. This will help you achieve smooth, radiant skin, which helps create a flawless base for makeup.
- Define your brows
Your eyebrows are one of the most important aspects of your face, especially when giving off a subtle and natural vibe. If you have sparse eyebrows, draw on some extra hairs to make them appear fuller. However, don’t go overboard because you want to keep as much of your natural beauty as possible.
- Use a tinted moisturizer
A tinted moisturizer will even out your skin tone while giving your face a dewy finish. It’s perfect for dry skin types, but normal to oily skin types can also use it, as long as they set it with a powder.
- Conceal only the problem areas
There’s no shame in needing a little help. The area around your eyes is generally the first place that shows signs of fatigue or stress. If you have an event or party coming up and you’re not sure if you’ll be able to get enough rest before then, invest in a good concealer. This will make you look more awake but also help hide any puffiness.
Also, make sure to apply the concealer just where your spots are and not all over your face. Spot concealing is the best method to achieve the perfect-looking base without making your makeup cakey.
- Apply mascara
Apply one layer of mascara on your lashes to give them just enough lift and volume without making them look overdone. Wiggle the wand from side to side, starting at the roots of your lashes, then working towards the tips to ensure that every lash is coated with product evenly and there are no clumps in sight.
- Focus on the blush
A blush helps add a natural flush of color to your cheeks and gives you an overall fresh appearance. For this particular look, pinkish-brown blushes work best, but you can use any blush that you think matches your skin tone well. Make sure to go with a light hand.
- Choose an MLBB lip shade
MLBB or “my lips but better” is a shade close to your natural lip color. Using this lipstick color will give you the most natural look to match your no-makeup makeup look well.
Go Minimal for Your No-Makeup Makeup Look
You don’t have to give up your makeup entirely to achieve the no-makeup makeup look. Just make sure that your makeup is minimal, natural-looking, and enhances your natural beauty rather than covering it up.
The right type of makeup will make you look stunning and help you feel much better about yourself. The most important thing to remember when coming up with your natural look is to play up what you already have. It is all about enhancing your best features and looking like your best natural self.
