Creating a 'No Make Up' Make Up Look







Some days, we all just want to whack on some neutral make up and go about our day right? No need for the bold lip or smoky eyes...I got you covered.

To keep my skin clear, recently I have been loving Estee Lauder's Advanced Night Repair. It keeps my skin feeling plump and helps to reduce any redness. Applying this before my make up has kept my skin a lot clearer than before when I just used to spread on my foundation, so it is perfect for those 'no make up, make up, days'.

If you've got fair eye lashes like me, you still might want to apply a little mascara but if not, simply giving your eye lids a little wash of colour can help to wake up those tired looking eyes. A neutral brown tone can work wonders or a pale pink can too!

Highlighting is key, especially if you're going for no foundation like I do. I usually powder my skin using a light powder like the Chanel one here and then apply a little bit of highlighter to the areas of my face that need it most. If your skin is looking a little dull, adding a little bit of blusher works also.

For lips I always opt for a nude shade. I like this browny nude from Bare Minerals, 'Make Your Move'.

What do you wear on minimal make up days?..
