BACK TO SLAY | NAIL ‘NO MAKEUP’ MAKEUP

If you’re on the hunt for natural looking makeup to see you into the new term, then we’ve got the goods. We’ve got all the hair products and makeup you’ll ever need to absolutely nail ‘no makeup’ makeup.

What is no makeup makeup?

Sounds a bit weird, doesn’t it? But it makes total sense. Whether you wanna add a slight touch of foundation to give yourself a confidence boost on a red skin day or there’s no way you intend to leave the house without doing something to your hair, there are plenty of products that’ll boost your look, without feeling too “done”.

No makeup makeup generally focuses on a dewy makeup finish. So that’ll be sheer coverage foundation or BB cream, with a natural coloured mascara and a glossy nude lip. Finish your look with minimal products in your hair to look woke-up-like-this flawless.

If you want a barely there natural looking makeup look, then we’ve got the no makeup makeup products for you.

    BENEFIT GIMME BROW

    When it comes to natural looking makeup, it is so important to apply your products with a light hand. If you apply too much pressure, then your makeup will end up looking much more bold and therefore obvious. Instead, use small strokes that will provide you with that barely-there look that you desire.

    Plus, instead of using a pencil or a pomade for your brows, try Benefit’s Gimme Brow. This will provide your eyebrows with added fullness without slick definition.

I’ve obsessed over all things beauty for as long as I can remember! Since my early teens, I’ve constantly experimented with my makeup, hair and nails. Nowadays, I usually settle for a statement eye and a soft, nude lip. I also love social media, so if you see a tweet or a post by HQhair, then I’ll most probably be the face behind it! If I’m not playing around with the latest beauty product or checking out what’s happening over on Twitter, then I’ll be on a city break with my friends, sipping on a Blue Lagoon.
