4 Products to ‘No Makeup’ Makeup

May 28, 2020

Everyone always mentions a "no makeup" makeup look. It's supposed to be light, airy, and not overly obvious you spent a bit of time putting it all together. With summer here in Arizona, I just can't be bothered with a full routine some days so I've been opting for a quick and simple makeup look that combines a few key pieces for my day to day. A base, a highlight, and a lippie.

After doing a full skincare routine, I like to go in with this new base option from Estee Lauder. The Futurist Hydra Rescue provides medium coverage, but is easily buildable to full coverage. It glides on the skin beautifully with this ecotools brush (and you know I'm not usually a brush kind of girl.) With SPF 45, it also offers a little bit of coverage. 

Next I use the Cover FX Custom Enhancer Drops (in the shade Moonlight) as a highlighter, and then I pop on a little directly on the lids with my fingertips. Using my fingertips for this piece really gives me a nice natural glow because there's something beautiful about just using skin.

My favorite part is popping on a little pink sheen to the lips with a NARS lipgloss. Always creamy and always pigmented. This just gives the entire look a bit of girly pop, and I love how hydrating this formulation is. It's been a staple in my lip collection for years.

Pop on a little setting spray and voilà!

What are some of your day to day staples for a light breezy look?

Love these products! Sometimes I just need a little makeup help, but I don’t want to go full-on face lol. These seem like great products for days like that! Xx.

oooh yes! i pretty much always use a no makeup look and just use a little mascara and shape tape! thanks for sharing your faves.

Looks like a solid choice! Looks so natural and pretty…appreciate how effortless it is to achieve! xoxo, Sarah

Talk about beautiful! I’ve only recently discovered a lightweight, lighter coverage combo that works for me. I have really problematic skin, so I usually reach for full coverage everything haha! But lately, I’ve used a BB cream, cream blush, mascara, and brow gel (sometimes I add a touch of highlighter) to achieve my “like skin” look! I gotta try some of these products!

This is the perfect no-makeup look. I’ve really been like the Ilia drops too for a sheer foundation.
