How to Do the No-Makeup Makeup Look
If you want to have a simple yet still fab look while staying at home, no-makeup makeup is perfect for you. This makeup trend is the best for those who are over with the smokey eyes trend and want to highlight their natural beauty instead. It is the perfect makeup to wear when you are doing online meetings wherein you do not want to look too overly prepared, but you do not want to look too casual and unready.
Before we begin, here are the things you need to have:
Nude makeup palette
Brow makeup and brow mascara
Follow these steps to take to get that no-makeup makeup look:
Prepare your skin
First, you need to get your primer and apply it evenly to your face. Primer helps improve the coverage of your face and also lengthens the amount of time your makeup will last on your face. It also helps improve the texture of your skin. It hides fine lines, large pores, and other textures for a smoother base.
Quench your skin’s thirst with this two-in-one moisturizer and primer from Laura Geller and save time on your beauty regimen.
This ultra-hydrating primer from jane iredale smooths and hydrates skin to create long lasting, ideal makeup canvas. It can help maintain your skin’s youthful appearance and minimize the appearance of pores and fine lines while bringing out your natural radiance.
Correct the imperfections
A smooth canvas is necessary to achieve beautiful natural makeup. Using your color-correcting concealer, try to even out your skin color.
- If there is uneven redness on your skin, use a green concealer.
- If your skin looks dull, try using a lavender concealer.
- If you have dark circles, use a peach concealer.
- For other skin discoloration, use a yellow concealer.

Do not forget to blend well.
Apply your foundation
Using a makeup blender, apply your foundation over your face. To achieve a more natural effect, we recommend using a matte foundation.

Prep your eyelids
Now that your face is ready, you need to move to your eyes. Prepare them by applying an eyelid primer. It also helps give you smoother skin to work on later.

Add your eyeshadow
Using your natural palette, find a color that best matches your skin. Apply it on your lid and blend well. Next, get a darker tone and apply it to your crease. This trick will add depth to your eyes. Lastly, choose a lighter shade and apply it to your brow bone to act as the highlighter. It will help create perception and depth, as well as accentuate the angle of your brow.

Open up your eyes
After the eyeshadow, you need to open up your eyes by using brown eyeliner. Do not line up the eyes entirely. Dot your lash lines instead to achieve a more natural effect. It can also make it look like you have fuller lashes.
