We’re all over this ‘no makeup’ makeup trend that’s been hitting the runway this season, there’s just no denying that fresh-faced beauty is having its moment again. Perfect for the humid summer season, and on days when you’ve snoozed the alarm all too many times – this could just be the Florence Nightingale of all trends. So we’ve pulled together our favourite makeup and skincare tricks that will give you that gorgeous glow-from-within look. Need to be ready in 10 minutes? Good job we only need 5.
Prep your skin with Charlotte’s Magic Cream by Charlotte Tilbury (£70). Moisturising your skin is one step you should never miss out – yes, really! Containing hyaluronic acid, it works to lift your complexion and intensely moisturise your skin. Yep, it really is magic.
There’s something a little cooler about an ‘au naturel lash’. And by au naturel, we mean makeup that doesn’t look like makeup of course. Curly lashes are the best for opening up your eyes, and our favourite curlers are these must have’s by Shu Uemura (£21.50). Then, try Estee Lauder’s mascara primer (£20), which doubles lash volume and sets lashes, meaning less, if not no mascara is needed (depending on how brave you’re feeling ladies!).
For a natural looking flush, brush on a little bit of the Gina blusher by Nars (£23) – the micronised powder ensures for a soft blendable application, this could even be a ten second job, I kid you not.
POUT AND OUT
Before you rush out the door (or whilst you’re on the tube, lets be honest), give your lips some much-needed nourishment with Dr Lipp’s Original Nipple Balm (£12). Famous for it’s fast acting and long lasting effects, Dr Lipp formula is free of additives and fragrances, it’s designed to hydrate, nourish, and plump out all types of skin. Loved in the industry by celebrity make-up artists, this pocket size product will leave people wondering what your secret trick is.
