The 8 Products You Need For The No-Makeup Look

By: Sarah Grinnell

Whether you prefer to keep it simple, or love a heavy makeup look, the “natural” makeup look, also referred to as the “no makeup” look is one that every girl can rock. Here are ET’s 8 favorite products to give you a natural glow, without breaking your bank!

Tinted moisturizer or BB cream: A classic go-to for years has been the Maybelline Dream Fresh BB Cream 8-in-1 Skin Perfector. It’s lightweight enough to spread easily with your fingertips but provides enough coverage for class or a night out. Maybelline even offers a version for oily/acne prone skin, the Maybelline Dream Pure BB Cream.

Pressed powder: Another drugstore favorite is the Rimmel Stay Matte Translucent Pressed Powder. Keeps you shine free all day and is under $6!

Bronzer: No face is complete without bronzer, and the BareMinerals Invisible Bronze Powder Bronzer is the perfect amount of sheen and pigment. Apply all over the perimeter of your face with a loose powder brush for a natural, healthy glow.

Highlight: A bright complexion has been all the rage, and it’s not going anywhere. For a “glowing from within” look, dust Laura Mercier Matte Radiance Baked Powder Compact on your cheekbones, bridge and tip of the nose, above the lip, and above the arch of the eyebrow.

Eyebrows: When going for a no-makeup look, less is more with brows. Benefit Goof Proof Brow Pencil allows you to feather in light strokes without going overboard.

Eyeshadow: A light shimmer in the inner corner and a soft brown in the crease is the perfect look when you don’t want to look like you’re about to sleep in the back of your 8am lecture. Dust Makeup Geek Eyeshadow in Creme Brulee in your crease with a fluffy brush and pat Makeup Geek Eyeshadow in Shimma Shimma in your inner corner for natural definition.

Mascara: LOreal Telescopic Mascara gives your lashes unbelievable length, but has a tiny enough wand to wiggle near the tightline for a faux-liner effect. Sweep on a few coats for a natural doe-eyed look.

Lips: Depending on how much you want to commit to the “no makeup” look, your lip product could vary. Some days simple chapstick is the perfect finishing touch, but if you want a sheer boost of color try Too Faced Sweet Peach Creamy Lip Oil. This gloss is hydrating like a balm but has a hint of color and shine to brighten up your face. Bonus tip: Natural faces and bold, vampy lips are super on trend for days when you want to jazz up your simple look. Swipe on MAC Sin or Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick in Raisin Rage for the easiest yet super pulled together look.
