Anyone who knows me personally would know that I’ve never been a fan of heavy makeup. As much as I love a good dark lip for a night out, when it comes to my everyday look, I like to keep it as natural as possible. A few products to brighten up the eyes and lips and I’m good to go! 🙂
So here are some of my top tips for that ‘barely there’ makeup look:
1. Scrub up well
Your skin is your canvas, so a mini pampering session is probably more important than anything you do after that. Cleanse, exfoliate, wash and then tone – do NOT forget to moisturise.
2. Stick to neutrals
Since the whole purpose of a ‘barely there’ look is to make it seem like you aren’t wearing much makeup, stick to neutral tones that blend well with your skin.
3. Define the lash
It’s always important to play up the eyes when you are going for this look. Add one or two layers of mascara to draw out your eyes more – remember not to get too carried away.
4. Tinted moisturiser
Tinted moisturiser is an absolute lifesaver! It is very light so you never have to worry about having that ‘heavy’ look that some foundations can give you.
5. Bronze it up
A bit of bronzer is a good way to add some life into your face. Contour around your temples and the hollows of your cheeks – not only will it liven you up but it will also slim you down!
What is your go-to product for that barely there look? If you have one, then I’d love to hear from you! 🙂
