The No-Makeup Makeup Look
I love all things Fashion & Beauty. I love getting dressed up, doing my hair and having on point make up. For me when I look good, I feel good. Simple things like having neat hair and healthy looking skin can boost your confidence 100 times over compared to a day when you feel like a frump. With that said, I don’t like to wear a full face of make up every single day. Especially now that I am a stay at home / work from home mum. It just feels silly. If I am at home with my son then it makes no sense to me to have thick foundation all over my face. I want to look presentable but natural during the day. The last thing you want is to bump in to Karen from work looking like you have been beaten with the ugly stick one too may times. That is why I go down a simple route. I do the No-Makeup Makeup Look to look like a natural beauty. (even though I am totally cheating) #wokeuplikethis not!
One thing I love about this routine is that it is quick and easy. When you are getting up at 6:30 am every morning with your little one the last thing you want is to spend an hour getting yourself prepared.
So here is my “No Make Up” Make Up Routine that helps me to look fresh and natural during the day while keeping it simple and easy.
The “No Makeup” makeup look
My go to brand at the moment is Bobbi Brown. I used to be an exclusively Mac kinda gal but recently have been using a more products from Bobbi. I find that they are a really good quality and that the range of colours are prefect for my skin tone. Plus their packaging is really cute.
NATURAL DEWY SKIN
My secret weapon to fresh dewy skin? Bobbi Browns Extra Moisturising tinted moisturiser. This product got me so in love!!!! I wanted something that would give me a semi decent coverage but would feel light on my face. I hate feeling like my skin cannot breath. What I found was that a lot of bb creams either dried out my skin or make it feel sticky and oily. However this moisturiser has been perfect. It evens out my skin tone while feeling like I am not wearing anything at all. The plus side is that it gives me a dewy look as opposed to my foundation which can be a bit matte.
PINK LIPS AND CHEEKS
Blush has always been very important to me. I would always add a bit of colour to my cheeks before leaving the house, even if I didn’t have any other make up on. I found it gave me an instant glow and livened up my skin when it looked a bit dull.
The only problem I had was that once I left the house, the powder blushes would fade very quickly. And carrying around a blush palette and brush was not ideal. This is why this Lip and Cheek pot was perfect for me.
This product is my all time favourite. I don’t know how I managed without it. It adds a soft flush to your cheeks and a natural colour to your lips. The texture is super easy to apply. It glides on like a thick moisturiser. Just rub a little on to the apples of your cheeks and dap on to your lips and you are good to go. You can add a bit of lip balm if you want a more glossy look.
The compact itself is small and easy to carry around with you in your bag or clutch. It is perfect for when you are traveling.
If I have time then I apply a quick bit of mascara and I brush and pencil in my brows depending on their state. I find the if I get HD brows regularly then I rarely need to do anything to them as they look neat and filled in automatically. As you can see though in these pictures, I haven’t had my brows done in ages.
Now you have my secrets to looking fresh and presentable everyday while staying natural. It is important for us to always feel good about ourselves. Little things like this can make a huge difference in your self-esteem.

Ooo that foundation looks so good! It looks so creamy in the jar! I definitely need to try this out from Bobbi Brown! 🙂
Yes it is great. I am totally in love with it.
Love it! I love Bobbi Brown too! This looks great on you! 🙂
I’m a huge fan of tinted moisturizer as well-the no makeup, makeup look is my go to every time. Great post!
So true! Feeling good is so important. I need to actually love me more!
It is so important. When you feel good you radiant confidence and tend to be more positive I find
Well I absolutely love this No-Make Up look. I never wear make up but the basic, concealer for dark circles, mascara and lip color.
These are some really great tips. I love the idea of still looking natural but also giving your skin a little help with a tinted moisturizer! I spend too much time on makeup every morning so maybe in the future I will try out some of your tips!
It is a lifesaver. So quick and I look fresh enough to not be embarrassed to step out. Let me know how you get on if you do try it x
This is such a great look for you! I’m a big fan of the natural look. It’s such a challenge for me to get the right shades. Nice tips!
I know what you mean. Because my skin tone is not light and not dark it is difficult for me too.
This combo is right up my alley. I don’t necessarily like flashy make-up and usually opt for the natural look.
Yes Flashy makeup is not for everyone
Your skin looks amazing! I love the no-makeup makeup look personally
Thanks Bianca x
Oh to Be a Muse
I’m not the best when it comes to makeup, so I typically do the no-makeup makeup look as my go-to look on weekends. It’s just easier while still providing you with a nice finished look that’s not overdone. I love what you did here!
Absolutely loving these tips. What I love is that you literally only used two products (three if you count mascara which I always put on even if I have no make up on). I will definitely need to check out some Bobbi Brown products. I use to be a Mac girl as well and Bieber use more drug store. Thanks again. Xox
I know it is so quick and easy and i don’t have to worry about looking like death when I step out
Love this natural look! You look beautiful!
Thank you x
I absolutely love the no makeup makeup looks. I haven’t really tried anything from Bobbi Brown, but everyone seems to be in love with it. I will have to look onto it because you look stunning ❤️
Aw thank you. Yes I highly recommend Bobbi Brown
You look amazing girl! Love your no makeup look!

You look great! I keep a really simple and natural makeup routine as well. Having that little bit can really help you feel a tad more motivated.
I need to check this foundation out! I love the natural look!

You’re beautiful! I really like the makeup choices and your natural look.
Great tips. I love this look.
I love this look! Especially for busy moms, this should def be a go-to! I rarely have time to do the ‘all-out’ look, plus–especially if you stay at home–I almost feel like it’s a waste to do all that makeup and have nowhere to go, lol! How does this stay put as a foundation though? I have oily skin and right now am using Lancome because that’s the only thing that’ll stay on my face all day! lol! 🙂
Hey! If you want full coverage it is not designed for that. It is a tinted moisturiser. I find that it seems to stay all day but I have more drier skin since living in Scotland. x
My Fave look ever!
Thank you x
I am very impressed! I gave up wearing makeup entirely when I became a SAHM/WAHM (not that I ever wore a ton before lol) – except for lipstick which is so must-have to me, I don’t even consider it makeup lol. But your “no makeup” look looks very natural AND very pretty, indeed, w/o taking hours of time/effort!
i m so happy because your post are wonderful and really useful for me,thanks dear for sharing…
I am not into make up so this one’s works best on me. I agree to use tinted moisturizer, a must have for this look!
I find this piece of writing very informative and accurate. Good job
