Sure, it's fun to do a full-on glam makeup look that features a smoky eye, heavily contoured skin and bold lips. However, if you're starting to get a little sick of the over-the-top Instagram look, then it might be time to mix things up with the "no makeup" makeup look.
While the goal of Instagram makeup is to look wild and daring, the goal of the no makeup look is to look natural and dewy, while still concealing your imperfections. Not only is this a great way to give your skin a break from all the product used in Instagram looks, but it's a makeup style that is perfect for any season and any skin tone.
Here are the makeup products we love when we're trying to look like we're not wearing any makeup at all.
1. Stila Sheer Color Tinted Moisturizer
This gorgeous tinted moisturizer is perfect for the days where we're not feeling a full face of foundation. It's full of skin-loving ingredients and has an SPF of 20, making it perfect for daytime wear.
As a bonus, even though the weather might be icky right now, this tinted moisturizer is totally sweat-proof and waterproof for those summer days spent at the beach. (Don't worry, those days will be back soon!)
2. Rituel De Fille Enchanted Lip Sheer
Is anyone else suffering from some serious chapped lips right now? Between dry winter air and the matte liquid lipstick craze, our lips could definitely use a break from heavy products.
This tinted lip sheer gives a bit of color and a whole heap of moisture, making it perfect for the no makeup look. We're crazy about the Datura shade, a sweet and demure girly pink that's perfect for any season.
3. Lorac Unzipped Palette
Just because you're doing the no makeup thing doesn't mean that you have to skip eyeshadow altogether. Instead, create your look by using natural and muted hues. We love this Lorac eyeshadow palette, which contain soft nudes that are perfect for a natural look. We've yet to meet anyone who wasn't able to create a beautiful look with this palette. It's seriously universally flattering.
4. Jouer Lip and Cheek Tint
Using multiple colors to contour and glittery pigments to highlight is fun, but it's not what the no makeup look is about. We adore the Jouer Lip and Cheek Tint for a pop of color on the apples of our cheeks when we're going for a natural look.
Our favorite shade is Petal, which gives us the softest flush of pink and works on just about every skin tone. A close runner-up is Peony, which gives our skin the warmest pinky-peach glow.
