Step aside bold brows and cut crease, the no makeup, makeup look is here to stay in 2019. This natural yet put together look can take you from the gym to the office to a night out.
We have put together our favourite Mecca and David Jones beauty products to create this iconic look.
The key to a no makeup, makeup look is flawless looking skin with minimal coverage, so choosing a moisturiser that has your skin looking its best is so important. Try cult favourite TATCHA The Water Cream, perfect for all skin types, this indulgent moisturiser gives the skin a refreshing hydration whilst keeping excess oil at bay.
STEP 1 MOISTURISE
We recommend - Tatcha The Water Cream
Not to prime is a crime when creating the perfect base. Primer preps your skin for the ultimate makeup application and is a key step in creating this natural look. Estee Lauders classic Illuminator Perfecting Primer is a great option, smoothing and brightening the skin for a dewy, healthy glow. Apply with your fingers or a dense brush all over the face.
STEP 2 PRIME
We recommend - Estee Lauder the Illuminator Universal Perfecting Primer
Add some coverage with a tinted moisturizer. This will even and enhance your skin tone but won’t mask it, imparting a fresh, natural dewy glow. It’s equally lightweight as it is long wearing, an essential to your no makeup, makeup look. Apply with your fingers or a dense brush all over the face.
STEP 3 COVERAGE
We recommend – Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer
STEP 4 CONCEAL
If you are still wanting more coverage to hide blemishes, imperfections or under eye darkness, then the next step is to conceal. Lightweight liquid formulas like the YSL Touché Eclat work best in creating naturally perfect looking skin. Apply using the warmth of your fingers or a small fluffy brush.
We recommend – Yves Saint Laurent Touché Éclat
A bold, filled in brow can make it seem as though you are wearing more makeup then you really are. Keep them natural whilst adding colour and fibres by using an eyebrow gel. Apply by first brushing upwards and then into its natural arch for fuller looking brows.
STEP 5 BRUSHED BROWS
We recommend - Hourglass Arch Brow Volumizing Fibre Gel
The skin is the star of the show with this look, so we want to complement it with separated and volumized lashes.
STEP 6 LASHES
We recommend - Two Faced Better Than Sex Mascara
Add colour and warmth to the skin with blush. Try a cream blush instead of powder to get a natural glow. Apply using your fingers or a dense makeup brush and blend into your cheeks.
STEP 7 CHEEKS
We recommend - Clinique Chubby Cheeks Stick Blush
Complete your look with a tinted balm to add a wash of colour to your lips.
STEP 8 – LIPS
We recommend - Lanolips Tinted Balm in Perfect Nude
