Today is the beginning of our new normal — working and learning from home! I am all ready to go with my comfy clothes, coffee, and my no-makeup makeup. I honestly love seeing what people use for natural makeup looks. Today, I want to share just the base products I use for a no-makeup makeup.
I know this looks like a lot, but I don’t use it all at once! There are a few products that I switch in and out. For the most part, this is the base that I build from.
First up, my CC Cream. I wear this every single day, even if I’m not going outside or wearing makeup. It’s one of the best CC creams I’ve tried. It’s thick and lightly pigmented. I find that it covers small, light colored blemishes but it won’t completely cover a larger active pimple. Over all, it simply evens out my skin tone and gives the tiniest bit of color.
Next up, my under eyes! This is the part of my routine that I have down to a ‘t.’ I rarely deviate from the four products I use — under eye skincare, color corrector, eye brightener, and concealer. Used in a very thin layers, it creates a glowy under eye that makes me look awake.
I’ve been using the Colorescience Total Eye Therapy for a couple years. They sent it to me, and I have since purchased it. It is 100% worth the money. Next, I apply a small amount of color corrector to the darkest parts of my under eye. I love Au Naturale’s Color Theory Color Corrector in Flax. I will dig every last bit from this container!
Next up, eye brightener. This has been my favorite for a very long time. The Becca brand does an amazing job at making glowy products. This under eye brightener is no exception. It’s so good, and a little goes a long way.
Finally, I apply a tiny dot of concealer and pat it out with my ring finger. I alternate between the Hans Skincare Concealer and the Tarte Creaseless Concealer. If I had to compare the two, the Hans Skincare Concealer looks more hydrating and creases ever so slightly more. You definitely have to set it with a powder. The Tarte Creaseless Concealer is the least-creasing concealer I have ever used. It’s slightly more dry, though.
Next up, natural lip choices! I have mentioned the Charlotte Tilbury Pillow Talk lip liner for a couple years now. It’s so, so good. It’s a natural pinky-brown that leans more on the pink side. It’s very pretty by itself or under lipstick or lip gloss.
In fact, I love to layer the Hourglass Lip Gloss in Child over it. This has been my go-to nude lip gloss for years. It’s so good. A little goes a long way, so I only get the small size whenever I can snag it at Sephora (and the large one is on sale at Bergdorf Goodman’s right now!). Lastly, if I want a little more on my lips I always reach for my Too Faced Natural Nudes Lipstick in Birthday Suit. Again, and with most of my favorite products, a little goes a long way so just a quick swipe of this is all I need for the day.
I love all these no-makeup makeup products to make me feel pulled together when I really don’t need to be. Getting dressed and ready for the day is the best way to start each day, even if you can’t leave the house.
