It’s basically summer now, and I can’t be bothered with a full face of makeup every day that’s going to melt off as soon as I set foot out the house/on the tube. I’ve started wearing minimal makeup, and I think I have it down. Keep reading to see what products I use to get my no-makeup makeup look.
The night before, I mix two drops of the Isle of Paradise Self-Tanning drops with my Nivea Soft moisturiser and apply as the last step in my night time skincare routine.
When I wake up in the morning, my skin has a nice natural tan and my cheeks look less red. I apply my usual skincare (The Ordinary’s Hyaluronic Acid, Aurelia’s Revitalise and Glow serum and Clinique’s Pep Start SPF moisturiser) before applying the Kiehl’s tinted SPF. This further evens out any redness and gives a very light coverage.
Once the tinted SPF has dried down, I use the Makeup Geek Love Triangle Contour (used as a bronzer) to lightly bronze my temples and my forehead before taking it onto my cheeks. I then take my favourite Mary Lou-Manizer and apply it to the cheekbones, on the end of my nose and the bridge, under the brows and on my cupids bow.
I dye my eyebrows anyway, but they still need a bit of help. Using a very light hand, I take the NYX Micro Brow Pencil in Taupe and go around the outline and add in hair like strokes. I brush through them to make sure they don’t look too heavy before applying the NYX Clear Brow Gel.
I mix the Glossier Lidstars in Moon and Cub onto my lid and blend them out. They dry down pretty sheer and just give the lid a nice wash of colour and a touch of sparkle. I apply my Roller Lash mascara to the top lashes and my Clinique Bottom Lash mascara to the lower lashes. To make my eyes look more awake, I apply the Charlotte Tilbury Rock and Kohl eyeliner in Eye Cheat.
I usually just wear my Palmers lip balm, or if I fancy a little more colour I’ll take the Glossier the balmdotcom in cherry.
And there’s the end result! It’s super easy and is the perfect everyday summer make up. Let me know what you think! Leave a comment here or on instagram!
