A classic no make-up look is a great way to look effortlessly sleek everyday. It’s a great look always, but especially during the summer months when heavy foundation isn’t always ideal!
We’re putting together our expertise and our favourite brands to help you pull off that no make-up look, perfect for those “I woke up like this” selfies.
SPF - so, this one doesn’t work instantly but if you don’t protect your precious skin with daily SPF you’re going to pay the price in a few years. If you’re looking to keep your skin fresh, make sure you’re wearing SPF, babe. We looove Mudmasky Leave-Me-On Summer Mask, it’s made from flowers & morrocon clay, so no harsh chemicals! It’s also super lightweight so doesn’t leave you with blocked pores, is nourishing and can be used as a moisturiser, so this is our no.1 skincare base this Summer.
Primer - well, we can’t recommend this enough! Primer’s are great for soothing the skin and reducing the appearance of pores, but without the heaviness of a foundation. Our absolute fave is the Perricone MD Instant Blur primer. Not only does it instantly work to reduce redness, minimise the look pores and fine lines but it also works over time, so definitely a winner for the no make-up look.
Curl those Lashes - flutter those lashes, mascara or not, honey! A little eyelash curl is great for bringing attention to your gorgeous eyes with minimal effort. Be careful not to press too hard when curling your lashes, accidentally snapping off some precious eyebrows isn’t good...
Brush those eyebrows - we did not forget the brows, don’t worry! Whether you pencil your eyebrows lightly, spend 3 hours on them, or do nothing, you should always be brushing them. If you’re deciding against the full brows, lightly brushing the brows into position will make the perfect natural look. We also love to use the Glissy Brow Brow Conditioning Mask before this step, it conditions and nourishes the brows! Apply for 2-3 minutes and rinse with warm water 2-3 times a week.
Lip Balm - handbag isn’t complete without lip balm? SAME. Whether this is on top of your fave nude lippy, or on it’s own, it’s the perfect product to give a light shine to your lips whilst of course nourishing.
