To achieve a natural flawless ‘no makeup’ look, good skin care is imperative!! Keep skin well hydrated and moisturized using a good moisturiser and hydrating serum, also ensure that skin is well exfoliated at least once a week!

Step 1:

Before any makeup application, apply a good moisturiser and primer. Ensure that the primer is suited for ur exact skin type and condition. Good primers that I have worked with include Smashbox and Loreal infallible primer.

Step 2:

Using a damp beauty blender ‘push’ foundation into the skin. Once u have applied the foundation, use a concealer to blend out blemishes. Your fingers can serve as a good tool as the warmth of your skin blends out concealers much more easily.

Step 3:

Prep the eye area with a good eye base, NYX has affordable eye base pots that really emphasizes any eyeshadow pigment!  Using a blending brush, and a ‘windscreen wiper’ motion, blend out a dark brown shadow across the crease. The corners can be darkened by building up shadow, but remember, it’s all about blending, blending, blending!

Step 4:

Groom brows by using a brow mousse, an easy alternative would be hairspray on an old mascara brush, this will keep brow hairs in shape all day!

Step 5:

Open up the eyes using mascara! Maybelline and Loreal telescopic are 2 of my favourite brands.

Step 6:

Smoke the bottom lash line by taking the same brown eyeshadow and blending it out on the lower lash line.

Step 7:

Use a cream blush to create that ‘pinch me’ look on the apples of the cheeks.

Step 8:

Lastly finish off the look using either a matte or gloss nude lipstick! My favourite local and affordable brands would be Mac, Loreal, and Essence.

The end result:

'no-makeup' look

This look can easily be taken from day to night by adding another layer of mascara and a darker lip!!💋
