5 Steps to a No-Makeup Look

 

Even if you love your lippie and can’t live without mascara, it’s always refreshing to sport a natural no-makeup look from time to time. This obviously shouldn’t be taken literally. It’s all about mastering the art of ‘looking’ like you have no makeup on! As Calvin Klein once said, “The best thing is to look natural, but it takes makeup to look natural.” Here’s how you can achieve a soft, no-makeup look in 5 easy steps –

Step 1 : Correct and even out your skin tone

Use a light coverage BB cream or foundation for sheer coverage and a natural finish. The idea is to even out your skin and not mask it under a heavy coverage product. Use a concealer to spot correct areas that need extra coverage such as the under eyes, sun spots and blemishes. Use a light powder to set the base, but remember to use a very light hand to avoid a thick powdery finish.

 

Step 2 : Tightline your eyes using a black or brown liner

Tightlining simply means lining the top and bottom inner rims of the eyes with liner, staying as close to the lash line as possible. Black can look a little harsh especially on gals with lighter/fairer skin and lighter eyes so I suggest using a brown liner for this step. Apply the liner into the roots of lashes to give them natural volume and instantly open up your eyes.

Video Tutorial : Dewy Fresh No-Makeup Look

 

Hey everyone!

A dewy fresh no-makeup look is something that looks good on everyone! This was my most requested tutorial and I hope you like it! As you can see, my skin doesn’t look completely perfected but to keep the look light, fresh and natural, I’ve not used products that give too much coverage.

You can tweak it to suit your personal style. If you’re someone who always wears a swipe of kajal or liner, you can add that here so that you look like yourself. You could also choose to do a matte lip instead of the glossy one I’ve done here. The idea here is to look fresh faced but as we know, it takes a bit of makeup to get the ‘no-makeup’ look especially for Indian complexions that naturally have some pigmentation.

Copper & Coral : Earth toned Makeup Tutorial for Warm skin tone

 

Hey everyone!

Today I’m doing a simple tutorial for an Earth toned makeup look that would make an excellent everyday look for warm/dusky skin tones. The eyes are softly defined with kohl with a haze of copper around to emphasize the brown, the cheeks are slightly dewy with a creamy coral color and to complete the look, I’ve used a dusty coral lipstick in a creamy finish. The overall look is very fresh and wearable, it is something I would do for day time.

I hope you like the look, don’t forget to leave your comments below!
