Achieve The No-Makeup Makeup Look Easily With This Step-By-Step Guide

The no-makeup makeup look has been a staple on the runways for the past few seasons, and though it might seem effortless, it can be tricky (unless you're born with superior genes). Here's a simple step-by-step guide to help you achieve the flawless look.

#1: BB Cream

To get glowing, effortless skin characteristic of the no-makeup makeup look, skip the foundation – liquid foundations are way too heavy, while powder foundations can give a matte, cakey finish. BB creams are your best bet, as they provide great coverage while keeping your skin looking natural. Tinted moisturisers can work as well, but most importantly, look for a product that has SPF to protect your skin.

#2: Concealer

Unless you have impossibly flawless skin (#jealous), then you’ll have to join the rest of us mere mortals and choose the right concealer to cover up blemishes, pimples, redness and whatnot. A lightweight concealer will do the trick – just remember to gently use your ring finger to pat on concealer if you’re covering your dark circles, as the skin around your eyes is extremely delicate.
