The No-MakeUp MakeUp Look

"No MakeUp" MakeUp Look

here is my take on the "no make up" make up look. the previous time i attempted something so light (the chun song yi make up.. which i will not link because it's pretty fail.....) i thought i didn't suit such light make up. this time round i learnt my lesson and tried to correct those mistakes.

the essence of no make up make up is simple: no obvious eyeliner and no shocking lip colour. the cheeks should look like it's glowing from within your skin. there shouldn't be an obvious boundary between the different layers of products. everything should blend into one seamless finish to make your skin look a little more refreshed and healthy looking.

the keypoints are summarized above! these are the goals we try to achieve in this tutorial. i'm lucky to be born with a relatively problem free skin, so i can get away with some slight covering. if you have more perceived flaws that you'll like to perfect, please do so before the foundation step. also, i think i'm the only one who uses a foundation as a brightener. it helps with reducing the amount of products i need (instead of using another brightener on top of the foundation, i might as well brighten in my very first step).

it is important to cover ever so slightly to retain some of it so that it looks more natural. we're not going for a full coverage flawless face here.

they say the eye is the window to your souls, it can't be more true. so.. how do i make it look more awake without the usual stuff i do?

the foundation helps to blend out any edges around the cheeks and will integrate together with the blush to form one uniform surface. this will make the blush look much more natural.
