Achieving the "no-makeup" makeup look can be a tad tedious. Mimicking real-looking skin requires more attention, and one way to ease the burden is to find the right products that are effortless, long-lasting, and have a good color payoff.
Since they've pretty much mastered the art of the no-makeup makeup look, we asked models for their best product recommendations. Here are their favorite picks for castings and their off-duty looks!
What Models Use for Their No-Makeup Makeup Looks
1. Jessica Yang (@jesych): Dermacol Makeup Cover Foundation
"My ultimate product has to be the Dermacol Makeup Cover Foundation. They don't have a physical store here in the Philippines but you can order online (just beware of fakes). It's literally the best thing. It's known to provide full coverage to cover tattoos so I use it as a concealer! It blends super freaking well, and a tiny bit goes a long way. I highly recommend it, it gives my face a new life after applying."

2. Reins Mika (@reinsmika): Sunnies Face Face Glass in Nova
"My go-to favorite product for is the Sunnies Face Face Glass in Nova. It's light on the skin and quickly gives you a dewy, glass-like finish. It's a model makeup must-have for me since it gives the illusion of higher cheekbones and a more natural look while accentuating your angles."

3. Sabina Gonzalez (@sabinagonzalez): Koh Gen Do Maifanshi Aqua Foundation Illuminator
"I'm so in love with this because it effectively gives off all the sheen you want from a liquid highlighter, while being insanely light and natural. I love the brand because it's so skincare-oriented, so their products have me feeling like my skin looks fresh and clean— the Illuminator being no exception. When finishing up, I dot the areas I want to highlight and it blends so easily that anyone could do it, making it perfect for a clean, natural, no makeup vibe that lasts the whole day."

4. Adela Mae Marshall (@adelamae): Issy & Co. Active Skin Tint
"I don’t actually own a foundation because when I'm working, I wear so much makeup. So, my go-to product is Issy & Co.'s tinted moisturizer. It makes me feel like I’ve done something without covering up too much. It’s basically skincare."

5. Jasmine Maierhofer (@jasmaierhofer): Sassy Lip and Cheek Tint
"My favorite product to use for a no-makeup look is a lip & cheek tint from @sassyxbabe. It's a three-in-one [product] I use on my cheeks, lips and even on my eyes as an eyeshadow."

"For a no-makeup look, the Dior Addict Lip Maximizer Plumping Gloss adds the perfect finishing touch that makes me feel ready for the day."

7. Xenia Santos (@heeyy_xenia): BYS HD Micro Finish Powder
"My holy grail powder is the BYS HD Micro Finish Powder. It's not like any other powder because its micro finish blurs your skin and makes you look flawless but still very natural. And, it does hold your base makeup."

8. Erla Garcia (@erla.rain): Colourette Colourtint in Emma
"My favorite product for a no-makeup look is Colourette's multi-use tint in Emma. Not only do I use it on my lips, but I also use it on my eyes and cheeks to give me that long-lasting fresh look. As a morena, this product blends really well on my skin and stays longer than I expected. I also use this on my castings whenever I have no time to do a full make up. Highly recommend this to everyone!"

9. Taki Yoneyama (@oiitstaki): The Ordinary Serum Foundation
"The key to a no makeup look is to have a good base. This product just does that! It has a light-medium coverage and a semi-matte finish that gives you glowy, healthy-looking skin!"

10. Agie Stoeckel (@agiestoeckel): Sunnies Face Lifebrow Duo in Ash Brown
"I love using Lifebrow Duo in Ash Brown from Sunnies Face. It draws on fine lines on my brows which gives a fuller and natural look since I have sparse brows. I always [reach for] this because it's easy to use."
