Fall is the perfect time to try the no-makeup look (if you haven’t already). It’s all about a fresh faced glow and letting your natural beauty shine through. It also feels lighter on the skin, allowing you to breathe a little easier and worry less about touching up throughout the day. These simple steps are easy and quick to do before you head out the door on your next adventure.
Step one: Apply a BB cream or sheer foundation. Always start with a clean and moisturized face and wait five to ten minutes after applying serum. I love theW3LL People Narcissist Foundation Stickor Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation. These both give a gentle kiss of colour and smooth out uneven skin tone. The key is to let your natural skin shine through, not completely cover it up. Tip: Blend with clean fingertips.
Step two: Conceal any blemishes with a small concealer brush and the under eye area by patting with your ring finger. I used theW3LL People Foundation Stickagain to pinpoint any dark spots and discolourations to instantly mask them.
Tap off excess on your brush and gently press into the under eye area instead of sweeping the brush. Same goes for setting any blemishes you’ve concealed—press into the skin or else you’ll disturb the concealer you’ve so carefully placed. If needed, apply a light layer of mineral foundation powder on your nose, forehead, chin, or anywhere you tend to get shiny. For this, the RMS "Un" Powderis wonderful.
Step three: Create a bronze flush on the cheeks. Powder bronzers are fantastic for creating a natural appearance. For this look, we used Guerlain Terracotta Bronzing Powder in shade 7. Gently pat and blend on the apples of your cheeks, making sure the edges are thoroughly blended out. This will last all day and you won’t get a caked on look that can happen with a contour.
Step four: Eyebrow time! Comb and fill in empty spots in your brows and set with a gel. Resist filling them in too heavily, however make sure they are defined to pull the look together. I love the Suqqu Balancing Eyebrow Palette in Moss Green. You can tint and set at the same time. Double win.
Step six: Curl lashes and apply mascara. I used my all-time favourite, W3LL People Expressionist Mascara for naturally separated, lengthened lashes. This doesn’t create dramatic lashes but instead creates flirty and effortless lashes that wash off surprisingly easily at the end of the day.
Step seven: Finish with a moisturizing lip color that complements your natural skin tone and warms your face—a ‘your lips but better’ shade. Try L'oreal Colour Riche Lipstick in Liya's Nude. This is the perfect lipstick for medium to dark skin tones.
That’s it! Now let your hair down and let your inner beauty glow through!
