This spring, it’s all about ‘no makeup’ makeup. What? Natural looking makeup? “If you want to look like you’re not wearing makeup, then why don’t you just not wear any at all?” Well, it’s a good point, but the gals here at HQhair can sometimes feel a little exposed with no makeup on at all, especially if we’re suffering from a breakout. With the right products and correct technique, you can easily embrace your features whilst covering any imperfections with natural looking makeup.
Barely-there makeup has been seen on countless celebrities over the last few months, including the glam queen herself: Kim Kardashian. Since making an appearance at the Balenciaga show completely makeup-free back in October, Kimmy K has noticeably toned down her look. So long are the days of a heavy contour, less is now more and we’re going to show you how to can create the perfect ‘no makeup’ makeup yourself right here on the #HQHUB.
Natural Looking Makeup Rule 1:
Invest in your skincare routine.
Ever heard that the secret to good makeup is great skin? Well, even with barely-there makeup, this rule is still key. If your face is properly prepped, then your makeup will sit much more naturally on your skin. Make sure that you properly cleanse, ideally once to remove makeup and any left over residue, and then twice to properly clarify your pores. Suitable for the most sensitive of skin, First Aid Beauty’s Face Cleanser is a perfect option and will leave your complexion looking crystal clear. Follow with Pixi Glow Tonic and then Caudalie’s Vinosource Moisturising Sorbet to ensure that your skin is looking radiant. Shop our whole skincare range here.
