Beauty Tips for a Fresh “No Makeup” Look…

Take heed of these no-makeup beauty tips and prepare to be amazed at just how chic you can look with fewer beauty products and a light hand. We’ve all seen those girls who always look naturally gorgeous and their makeup looks very minimal, right? Well, I’m spilling the beans on the no-makeup look so now we can all look effortlessly fabulous and feel like natural beauties! All you need are a few tips to pull off the natural look!

1. Get Tinted
One of the most important no-makeup beauty tips is to have a natural base. If you feel comfortable going without foundation, opt for a tinted moisturizer with SPF instead which looks more natural. If you’d rather wear foundation, that’s okay too, pick a foundation with a dewy finish for best results and apply with clean fingers or a foundation brush, make sure there aren’t any harsh lines!

2. Cover It up
If you have any blemishes or dark circles around the eyes, be sure to disguise those areas with a concealer and let them stay undercover. Use concealer sparingly so you don’t end up accentuating the flaw, if needed, you can always layer the concealer for a more natural, no-makeup look. Wearing concealer might sound counterintuitive to the whole natural thing, but believe me; all those girls sporting natural looks are wearing plenty of concealer!

3. Powder Puff Girl
An optional no-makeup beauty tip is to lightly dust translucent powder all over the face after your foundation or tinted moisturizer sets, or leave it as-is. Keep in mind that you don’t want to overdo the powder or you’ll look made up. Natural skin has some shine to it, so don’t go completely matte.

4. See Your Shadow
This is another discretionary natural makeup tip; apply an eye shadow a smidge darker than your natural skin tone and apply all over the lids. You can also use a shimmery champagne color to highlight your brow bone and inner corners of your eyes as well. Keep those brows groomed to avoid appearing too natural; we’re talking about tips for minimalist makeup here, not lazy makeup!

5. Pucker up
The principal tip for a natural lip is to use a tinted lip balm or lip butter. If you have a nude lip color you really like, feel free to use it. Creamy or semi-sheer lipsticks work best with this look. Apply your lip product of choice straight from the tube or dab it on with your lips with your fingers and your no-makeup look is complete!

  4. Katie, I loved this article, it is so packed with useful tips - summer is definitely the time when we want to achieve a more natural look with our makeup and your suggestions are spot on. I liked number 2 especially and know from my own experience that many people need help in choosing the best concealer for their under eye shadows because they often choose the wrong shade for their complexion and skin tone.

  5. i have tried it and it really works :)
    i was reading an article related to home remedies for soft hands, to remove dark circles and etc on http://welearners.com but i am little bit confused that does home remedies really have effects?

  6. Great tips! Still think I'd have to add a bit of mascara :)

  7. Love this look! The nude face is so gorgeous and its funny sometimes I feel like it takes me longer than my glamed up fake eyelash face lol

  8. this tips are also good if you going to get late, you see putting on a make up takes time but with this its very easy and fast no need for anything else, as for me, most of the time im too lazy to put on some make up so I ought to just put on some lip gloss, mascara, eyeliner, powder and done, i dont use a blusher cause i dont know how to make it look perfect :( anyway a nice fashion jewelry like an earring can compensate the lack of blush on :) well i do hope so hahaha!
