We have collated a ready-to-use ‘barely there’ makeup guide on how to get that natural no-makeup look with the help of, yes, you guessed it right- makeup!

Suggested read: Which eyebrow shape shall suit your face?

  1. The first step in achieving a barely there makeup look is to prep your skin. It is pretty much the canvas you’d be painting your masterpiece on with subtle strokes- so exfoliate, use some cleanser and make sure it glows. A good homemade face mask to flush out all of the toxins making home there isn’t rukled out either.
  2. Moisturize that skin with a tinted lotion that also contains ample SPF so your bright face can bounce off the glare of your bright competitor in the sky.
  3. The window to your inner beauty- your eyes need to be primed in too. Just a dab of primer under your eyes, along the brow line and lids and you’d be ready to touch it up with a natural stroke of expert makeup.
  4. The best way to go the no-makeup route is to go sans foundation and trash the heavy makeup look it tags along. Yet, if you do need to use it, you gotta go for foam foundation. It is super lightweight, covers all the blemishes and make you look fresh-faced like you never thought of makeup!
  5. Next in line is concealing those stubborn zits or freckles and here’s where your bae concealer comes knocking. So, go on and conceal those imperfections coz a no-makeup look calls for a perfect hand.
  6. Playing up the eyes is never ruled out in the no-makeup look books. Just use a little bit of mascara to draw out your eyes and before you know it, they will be speaking volumes for themselves. What- enhanced lashes!
  7. Eliminate all the sheen out of your face by dabbing and swiping it off with some powder. A few strokes of the powder brush and you’d be beautiful, au naturel…
  8. Define your cheekbones but instead of going the bronzer way, just opt for a darker shade of blush and paint it along the underside of your cheekbones and you’ll notice the men going red in love as they see you and the women a wee bit green in envy!
  9. Doing the lips, the barely there makeup way, is easy. Just skip the lipstick and go for the lipstain. While chapstick is the easiest, most handy option that can roll about in your purse if you eat it all (like I do) to amp your lips again, lipgloss is the one that also wraps in some shimmer. Also a tinted one gives a li’l color, still keeps up the natural game on and makes your lips appear brighter and fuller! Win- win!
  10. Last but not the least, since giving a miss on our beloved liners, bright color palettes and bronzers comes hard, a cheat trick that gives us the perfect sun-kissed face with the satisfactory grin of being able to use some beloved item in our vanity box is to go the dust shimmer way. Picking a mineral, matte glitter box in a shade that’s closest to your skin tone will weed out the sheen but still add a shine ohh-so-pretty! I know, I know- you’re welcome!

Now- go and get that no-makeup look with makeup and well, my no-makeup look makeup tips!

Yes, hon, you are welcome- really!

I am a misfit software engineer who left her work in the corporate world to pursue the insatiable quest to write. A freelance worker by the day, I choose to dream with eyes open wide. I have conversations with myself where I talk of the possibilities that life can hold. Too many wishes made on empty starless nights ensure that there are various dreams yet to be lived. I am working my way as I am on a quest to find myself. The greatest journeys are indeed the ones that lie within. I am yet to live my story because right now, the book is full of too many apostrophes and too many commas. The words are jumbled until the right one fits the puzzle. I don't believe in perfection because too many times, it is imperfection which paints the perfect story. I am verbose and I aim at living life in full swing until a speed breaker curbs the tantalizing pace with which I wish to conquer the dreams that would otherwise be too big for the not-so-tiny shoes I wear. Blessed with a lot of chubby fat, I love going the extra mile to conquer my extra dreams with an extra advice after all, we all love a little extra. A die-hard shopaholic, you can often find me laughing on serious stuff inappropriately at wrong times (unintentionally).
