As much as we all love colorful eyeshadows and bright lips, there is something about the natural face. For those of us who want to keep it minimal for their everyday look at work or just don’t feel like the heavy feeling of makeup, this trend is for you. It is the secret of the difference where all celebrities seem to wake up looking so beautiful, while most of us wake up with eye bags, dark circles, and maybe gaunt skin.
It can seem easy, but it is trickier than you can imagine. The final goal of all the product use is to get a sheer, fuss-free look that says you’ve got nothing on your face and also feels like you’ve got nothing on your face. From foundations, highlighters to mascara and lipsticks, here are the products to perfect that natural-looking makeup or the “no-makeup” makeup.
Fenty Beauty Pro Filt’r Instant Retouch Primer
A primer is the easiest way to a smooth base for a minimal look. This primer is moisturizing and effectively prolongs the foundation wear.
NARS Radiant Tinted Moisturizer
Tinted moisturizers, BB creams, CC creams, and skin tints help in giving the skin extra hydration and allow some imperfections of your skin to shine through to exude a natural beauty. This tinted moisturizer from NARS is the best for good coverage without feeling heavy.
NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer
Depending on how much you want to cover or how comfortable you are showing your blemishes and dark circles, you may forgo this step or use a lightweight hydrating concealer. NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer is a cult favorite and blends perfectly to make you always look good.
E.L.F Cosmetics Putty bronzer
This inexpensive bronzer competes equally with the most expensive cream bronzers in the market. It is a great shade range and works to give an amazing warm glow to the skin.

This highly pigmented formula is an amazing option for no-makeup makeup. It blends right into the skin, leaving a naturally flushed look.

A trio for lips, cheeks, and eyes, this formula is delicate to provide a sheer eyeshadow. It dries to a powder finish and blends easily to a softer color.
