THE NO MAKEUP, MAKEUP LOOK!

This is one of the most popular looks that is a must this coming Spring!

Who do YOU know can roll out of bed looking this fresh-faced and GORGE. Yeah, we hate to burst your bubble, but the no-makeup makeup look actually requires a bit of prep work. The good news—it’s a waaaayyyyy faster (and fool-proof) makeup routine to snag than the whole red lip + cat eye ensemble.

Step 1 Moisturize and even out your skin tone with a tinted lotion, like Tarte Smooth Operator Natural Tinted Moisturizer SPF 20 ($36, ulta.com), which is infused with sunscreen to protect your complexion from skin-damaging UV rays.

Step 2 Disguise flaws (breakouts, undereye circles, etc.) with a concealer like Maybelline Mineral Power Concealer ($6.99, drugstore.com). One with a small applicator tip will help reign in a heavy hand and prevent caking.

Step 3 If your skin gets shiny, sweep on a light dusting of oil-absorbing powder. Shiseido Translucent Pressed Powder ($32, sephora.com) will leave an unnoticeable veil of shine-blocker.

Step 4 Apply a warm peach or pink cream blush to the apples of your cheeks. NARS Cream Blush in Penny Lane ($27, sephora.com) gives skin a natural flush.

Step 5 Brighten eyes by blending a champagne-colored shadow like Urban Decay Delux Eyeshadow in Ruthless ($18, urbandecay.com) onto the center of your eyelids, the brow bones, and the inner corners of your eyes.

Step 6 Lightly dot a gray or brown eyeliner pencil like CoverGirl Perfect Blend Eye Pencil in Smoky Taupe ($5.29, drugstore.com) between your top lashes and blend gently with your pinky.

Step 7 Use your fingertip to dab on a pretty lip tint like Korres Guava Lipstick in Rose ($22, korresusa.com) that matches the natural shade of your lips.

THE KEY IS TO KEEP EVERYTHING DEWY AND NEUTRAL, NOT MATTE!
** ALSO, SKIP BROW PENCIL AND USE A BROW POWDER WITH AN ANGLE BRUSH THAT MATCHES YOUR NATURAL HAIR COLOR, OR EVEN BETTER, TAKE A BROW BRUSH AND SPRITZ HAIRSPRAY AND JUST BRUSH YOUR BROWS INTO SHAPE.
** ANOTHER TIP, BEFORE YOU MOISTURIZE, EXFOLIATE YOUR SKIN AND APPLY A FACE TANNING MOUSSE OR CREAM (LIKE ST TROPEZ) YOU WILL BE AMAZED AT HOW HEALTHY YOU LOOK :)
**  AND STICK TO THESE SHADES FOR EYESHADOW, GOLDS, CREAM, BRONZE…NOTICE THE MINIMAL EYELINER? PUT A NUDE SHADE EYELINER INSIDE YOUR WATERLINE!
So try this look, get your No Makeup, Makeup Look!
