Trends for makeup looks come and go, but one that will always be in style is the classic “no makeup” makeup look. As much as we love to have fun and play around with makeup here at The Beauty Marketplace, our vision is to ultimately celebrate simplistic beauty. The “no makeup” makeup look is perfect for every day wear!
Tatiana Cabasag is a full-time undergraduate business student and full-time makeup lover. When she’s not at school or work, she’s playing with makeup – whether it’s doing creative eye looks or perfecting her base makeup routine. Tatiana is a registered client and her favorite product is the Michelle Blendable Lip/Cheek Stick because nude lipstick is her go-to product. We reached out to Tatiana and asked her what her version of the “no-makeup” makeup look looks like.
This is a tutorial video on how to apply the makeup step by step:
The steps are as follows:
- Begin with a clean moisturized face, then fill in eyebrows. Tip for more natural brows: fill in lighter in the front and darker towards the tail. Fill in using flicking movement to create hair-like strokes.
- Concealing your brows is optional depending on how well your eyebrows cooperate.
- Take the concealer and apply a generous amount in a triangular shape with the point beginning near corners of eyes – be careful not to make it too cakey! Apply a small amount on the lower center of your forehead, dot your chin, and a light-handed line down the bridge of the nose. Let the concealer sit for about 15 seconds before blending. Brush eyebrow gel upwards and outwards while letting concealer sit.
- Use your finger or a traditional beauty sponge. Tip: blending with your finger warms up the product which allows better and more natural blending into your skin. If you’re using your finger, begin tapping motions from inner nose/eye corner and work your way outwards. You may use a sponge to do a final blend. If using a sponge, start blending bottom of concealer on the cheek and work your way outwards then upwards near eyes. Blend forehead, chin, and nose. Feel free to conceal any blemishes.
- Using a wet beauty sponge, apply a light layer of powder under eyes and blend in, do not bake. Continue for other concealed areas. Avoid too much powder so you don’t cake. Lightly brush over face with powder as well.
- To bronze/contour, dip a brush in the pan and tap off as much excess powder you can so the application will be subtle. Use more product if you want it to be more noticeable. Take a stippling brush to blend further. Blend towards and into hairline on your forehead for a more natural bronze.
- Set your face with setting spray. Spray a generous amount so that the makeup and skin will melt together. Be careful not to touch your face when it is wet or the makeup will come off. Fan off your face to dry quicker (with hands, a paper, or you can even sit in front of a fan)
- Curl eyelashes and apply mascara
- Use a “nude” lipstick that is close to your lip color. Stipple onto lips rather than smearing. This will alter/tint your lip color rather than mask it.
