7 Beauty Essentials to Cheating the No-Makeup Look Science your way to achieving that #iwokeuplikethis selfie.

Just so we’re clear, the no-makeup look still requires the use of makeup. Not all of us are confident to step out of the house with absolutely no makeup on, so a little cheating is in order. Don’t worry, we’re here to help you science your way to achieving that #iwokeuplikethis selfie. Below are the beauty essentials that you’ll need:

1. Moisturizer

TRY: Extra Illuminating Moisture Balm, Bobbi Brown

A well-moisturized face is a must if you want to achieve the dewy, no-makeup look. Start with a clean and healthy-looking base before anything else.

2. Color Correcting Concealer


TRY: Color Correcting Palette, NYX Cosmetics

The end goal is to have a naturally flawless look, and even skin tone is essential to nailing this. You can neutralize redness caused by acne marks using green concealer, hide bluish to deep purple under eye circles using orange concealer, enliven pale skin using pink concealer, and counteract sallow skin using purple concealer. If you know how the color wheel works, then this shouldn’t be too difficult to figure out.

3. Setting Powder

TRY: Natural Finish Loose Powder, Chanel

After using color corrector on your dark spots and unwanted blemishes, use a lightweight foundation or powder that’s in the same shade as your skin tone over it. This will fully even out your complexion and give you that flawless finish.

4. Eyelash Curler

TRY: Eyelash Curler, Shu Uemura

Relax! You can still have pretty doe eyes without having to wear falsies as long as you curl those lashes to open up your peepers. If you don’t have naturally thick and long lashes, then a coat of clear mascara should do the trick.

5. Clear Brow Gel

TRY: Clear Brow Set, MAC

Instead of boldly filling in your brows and ending up with caterpillar arches, tweeze out stray hair and use some clear brow gel to set it in place. That way your brows look tidy and well-groomed but not too made up.

6. Lip Balm


TRY: Lip Conditioner, MAC

Dry, chapped lips can ruin your entire look. Keep that pucker kissable with a swipe of lip balm to lock in moisture and give your pout some soft shine.

7. Cheek and Lip Tint

TRY: Benetint Cheek & Lip Stain, Benefit Cosmetics

For a hint of color, stain your lips and the apples of your cheeks with just a tiny amount of tint, just enough to give you a rosy glow. Make sure to blend it out for a naturally flushed look!
