Get The Look Beauty: The No Makeup Look

 

Halle Berry

 

That fresh, bare-faced look is all the rage at the moment. Gone are those panda eyes and caked-on foundation. If you’re looking for that ultra natural look for your eyes that could fool anyone into thinking that you’re not wearing any makeup (perfect for school) – this one’s for you. Here’s how to get that no make up, makeup look…

 

Get the no make up look

 

Start by priming your lids and under-eye area with an eye primer or a concealer in the same shade as your skin tone. If you have any discolouration around the eye area, use a colour corrector. Pat it into the skin and blend well.

Eyebrows frame the face and pull everything together. Using a blunt brow pencil that matches your brows, fill in any sparse areas. This can also be done using an angled brush dipped in brow pomade or a crayon – the key is to use light strokes in the same direction as eyebrow hair growth, rather than horizontally along the outline of the brow. Comb through with a spoolie brush or old mascara wand, set with a clear brow gel and clean up the edges with concealer.

Find yourself a matte eyeshadow that is similar to your skin tone or one shade darker. Apply this generously to the mobile lid and blend out well to avoid any harsh lines. When choosing your colour, be sure to take your undertones into account too.

Next, use a brown eyeliner that is somewhere between the colour of your natural lashes and your lids. This gives you that seamless shadow that blends into your lid and your lash line to create fuller lashes and add gentle dimension.  Lifting your lid with your finger, tight-line those eyes – pencil would be the easiest option to work with. Using an eyeshadow brush, gently blend away any visible lines.

Apply the same eyeliner to your bottom lash line, steering clear of the water line. Keep it to the outer half of the eye, fading as you move towards the inner corner. Avoid back-and-forth horizontal strokes and when in doubt, follow the direction of natural hair growth.

Curl your lashes and finish with a clear mascara. Brush out any clumps using a clean toothbrush or mascara wand.

Janelle Soong

I’m a pharmacy student and violin teacher who dabbles with makeup for fun. I believe that a smile that reaches the eyes is the best beauty product you will ever own. Favourite things in life include enjoying a cup of tea, youtubing cat videos and hoarding nude lipsticks/eyeshadow palettes. In fact, I’m probably doing one of those things right now.
