Perfecting a seamless “no-makeup” look calls for some, well, makeup. That being said, you don’t need a ton of products to pull it off. Here are my top picks from BeautySphere.co for achieving a glowy, au naturel look.
Prep the skin
Great makeup begins with healthy and smoother-looking skin. The right face mask will remove excess oils, improve the appearance of your pores, and help pull out impurities. The e.l.f. Daily Hydration Moisturizer is a nourishing moisturizer that instantly hydrates and preps the skin with its Jojoba oil and Vitamin E-infused formula.
Hydrate Those Lips
Chapped and dry lips can easily take away from your no-makeup look. Excess dead skin and dryness on the lips will cause premature ageing. Lip scrubs are the key to exfoliating and removing dead skin off of your lips, while also allowing your lip balm to pass through and rebalance that thick layer of skin. Who doesn’t want healthy, kissable lips? The Milani Keep It Sweet Sugar Lip Scrub contains natural sugar that exfoliates lips for an instantly revitalized look. Use 2-3 times per week to soften your lips and leave them feeling nourished. Make sure to add Absolute Hydrocare Lip Balm, formulated with rich Shea Butter, to prep your lip for colour.

Don’t forget to add a tint of colour to your lips. LA Colors Sheer Tube Lip Gloss contains just a sheer touch of colour for an irresistible shine and is available in a range of colours.
Primer is everything
Primers are an important step to help look in your makeup look while neutralizing the appearance of discolouration and redness. The NYX Honey Dew Me Up Primer is a perfect and innovative solution. The reflective gold flecks create a luminous look, and your skin will look so naturally radiant all day you’ll forget foundation is a thing.

Cover where you need it
One of the keys to no-makeup makeup is keeping everything super lightweight. We suggest strategically applying product where you need it, such as blemishes, scars, and discolouration. Of course, for this look, a lightweight foundation will do the trick while keeping the look super believable. This little tube of NYX Tinted Moisturizer does just that; adding a hint of sheer colour while replenishing your skin with a hydrating formula.
Build believable brows
When it comes to eyebrows, less is more for this look. If all you need is a little extra definition, the Milani Eyebrow Tinted Fiber Gel will create thicker, fuller brows by adhering to your brow hairs for as natural of a look as possible. Brush the hairs in your desired shape to keep them in place.
A simple boost for the eyes that takes mascara smudging out of the equation are these Ardell Faux Mink Lashes. They’re so light and realistic looking they’ll have everyone asking, “are those her natural lashes?”
You know that natural glow you achieve when your face flushes after exercise? You can recreate that with a cream blush instead of powder for a natural-looking glow. The NYX Ombre Blush offers radiant, long-lasting colour in the form of a velvety smooth cream. You can apply it with a synthetic bristled brush or your fingers—whatever you’re more comfortable with. Start at the apple of your cheeks and blend back and upward toward your hairline, keeping most of the colour in the front of your face for a youthful look.
