“No Makeup” Makeup Look

I’m going out tonight! *cue excitement* But I don’t feel like putting any makeup on… *cue slight dread* But I also don’t want to look like a bum… *cue confusion*

So now I have to decide if I want to put in lots of effort and beat my face, or if I want to look like I didn’t try at all (because I didn’t) and put no makeup on… Neither of these sound appealing to me, so let’s compromise. I’ll go for a “no makeup” makeup look that takes maybe 5-10 minutes tops! *cue cheering*

Today I want to show you all how to enhance your natural beauty without looking like you put on a pound of makeup (because you didn’t!).

First, I start with my skin. I make sure I follow my trusty skincare routine (If you haven’t checked out that post yet, I’ve linked it for you here!) to get an even, clean base. If your skin is on fleeeeek that day, then skip this first step. But, if you’re like most people and have any blemishes or uneven skin tone (nobody is perfect!), grab your foundation and mix it with some of your face lotion. Smooth it onto your face just like you would regularly. This gives a lighter coverage without feeling like you have on any foundation at all. Then, if you still have any noticeable bumps, just grab your concealer and blend it onto those spots.

Next, EYEBROWS! Eyebrows are so necessary. They frame your face and can really make or break any look you’re trying to achieve. I usually use a combo of powder and pencil for my eyebrows, but for this look I’m just going to use the eyebrow pencil. Make sure if you use a pencil you have one that is more powdery than waxy. This will help give you a more natural look. I start under the arch and go all the way out to the tail. Then, I lightly fill them in with short strokes to mimic the hairs instead of drawing them in like a coloring book. You don’t want them looking like this! (People will be looking at you like bruhhhh.)

I make sure I pay attention to the top of the arch and the inner corners as well, making very light strokes. If I feel like it I will seal them with an eyebrow gel, so the hairs don’t move out of place.

And finally, I put about 2 coats of mascara on my upper lashes, pat a tiny bit of blush on the apples of my cheeks, and I’m good to go!



Thanks for reading! Let me know what you guys think of this look!

  1. I love this. I want to start wearing makeup but I don’t feel comfortable “beating” my face yet. I want it to be simple, and natural. One of the main reasons is because I’m still learning to embrace myself. Anyways, you said to mix your foundation with your face lotion.. Did you mean literally mix them together? Or do you apply your face lotion and THEN put on your foundation?


    1. That’s okay! I wasn’t comfortable at first either! Sometimes you just have to keep trying 🙂
      And yes, i literally mix them together. this makes it like a tinted moisturizer for a light coverage.
