The ‘No Makeup’ Makeup Look

August 21, 2016

When it comes to wearing makeup, everyone knows i never go all out with a full glam look.  It’s quite rare in fact. So today i’m showing you the kind of makeup i tend to wear day to day. Although some days i don’t wear any makeup because i just don’t have the energy. I’m kinda face lazy.

I like to call this look the ‘no makeup’ makeup because it’s quite minimal although some may say this is clearly me wearing makeup and doesn’t look like i have nothing on. But this is my idea of a very minimal look give or take the lipstick. Even though it’s a minimal look it’s still a full face and isn’t exactly natural. Maybe that completely ruins the idea of ‘no makeup’ i don’t know, let’s just roll with it.

For my brows i used the ABH Dipbrow Pomade in the shade Ebony which i think could be a little too dark, i need to invest in a different shade i think. I then carved them out with some concealer. Any one will do for this step. Can i also just say i was having a major BAD brow day. That’s okay, they happen. *Cries to self*


For my eyeshadow base i used Beauty UK perfect concealer crayon which i am just laaaaaving. I then when straight in with my transition shade which was the light pink / brown shade from the Smashbox Shape matters palette and the white / cream shade on my lids. I also added the tiniest amount ever of the shimmery cream shade. I finished my eyes with a coat of the Mac False Lash Mascara and that’s my eyeshadow done, quick and easy. Perfect.

For my face base i used the Monu illuminating primer which honestly makes the most perfect base ever, love it.

I then started with my foundation using the Chanel Vita Lumiere with a Sigma F80 flat kabuki brush. These two together are just pure soul mates.

Because i’ve had major PMS face i then went over a few places that need more coverage with the Primark foundation stick. This is going to sound crazy but it’s one of the best foundation sticks i’ve ever used. It has amazing coverage and blends perfectly. For £4.00 it’s a steal too. You so need to try it!


I concealed my under eyes using the beauty UK perfect concealer crayon which for me was quite strange because i always prefer to use a liquid concealer. But i just love the coverage of this at the moment and like i said, it is so bendable. Love it!

I then set all over my face with the Too Faced Amazing Face Powder which i haven’t used in aaaageesss!

I didn’t cream contour today because to be honest i completely forgot so i just went in with then Benefit Hoola Bronzer. This is basically a holy grail product. Never let’s me down.

To highlight i used my fave product ever. The Mary – Loumanizer by The Balm with the brush that’s just absolutely perfect which is the Spectrum Collections large fan brush. Uhhh i love it so much.

To finish this look i used the NYX Lingerie Liquid Lipstick in the shade Push Up, i defiantly need to buy more shades of this because i love the consistency and durability of them. perfect price too!

And that’s the look finished! I really hope you like it, don’t forget to give this post a little comment if you do! And of course subscribe for post updates!

    It looks stunning! It looks really fresh and natural, I also don’t like going out full glam. It feels like my skin is dirty, haha! X
