How to Get That No-Make Up Look
Update your look for spring with a fresh, effortless style, with some essential natural-look beauty products.
Short on time in the morning, but want to look put-together? You’re in luck, since the latest and greatest make up is making it easier for busy women to look their natural best. Here are five subtle beauty products that will take you from wakeup to make up, and have you look as fresh as you feel:
1. Prime Your Canvas
Forget multistep routines; try Estée Lauder Daywear BB Multi-Perfecting Beauty Benefit Creme SPF 35 ($45, Estée Lauder counters, thebay.com). A combination of moisturizer, primer, sheer foundation and sunscreen, it also has a touch of shine control.
2. Define Your Brows
They help frame your face, so you can use less eye makeup. Fill in sparse areas with a Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Brow Colour pen ($27, Shoppers Drug Mart, sephora.com) which comes in Light (for blondes to light brunettes) and Medium (for medium to dark brunettes).
3. Make Your Eyes Pop
Curl lashes and line the upper inner rim with waterproof Make Up For Ever Aqua Eyes Eye Liner in Mat Black 0L ($20, Sephora, sephora.com), then apply Shiseido Makeup Perfect Mascara Full Definition ($30, Shiseido counters, thebay.com).
4. Perk up Your Complexion
For a natural-looking flush, try the Revlon PhotoReady Sculpting Blush Palette in Peach or Neutral ($15.50, drugstores).
