It may not look like it, but the no-makeup makeup is one of the most challenging beauty looks out there. The trick? It's all about the skin. Below, we list the essentials to this highly sought-after look (with a few pointers on how to achieve it):

Primer

The first step is to refine your skin's texture by using a primer that fits your skin type. A hydrating primer that smoothes over dry patches is best for dry skin. For oily skin, use a mattifying primer that will fill in pores and combat oil so you won't have to rely on a powder.

Foundation

Keep your foundation as natural-looking as possible by choosing a product with light to medium coverage in satin finish. Don't worry about any blemishes or redness still peeking through because you have concealer for that!

Concealer

For no-makeup looks, a concealer that disappears into the skin after blending is a must. While coverage should also be a priority, its texture and finish are crucial for it to look more natural. Dot the concealer over your problem areas to prevent yourself from accidentally putting too much, and then blend with your finger or using a damp sponge.

Blending sponge

The easiest way to prevent cakey looking makeup is by using a damp sponge to apply your foundation. They absorb excess product and help achieve a finish that looks as close to your skin's real texture as possible. You can also use these to make your full coverage foundations sheerer for daily use!

Powder

Too much powder is always a no-no for a natural makeup look, and we recommend those without much coverage. Lightly dab these babies on your T-zone and wherever you applied your concealer to keep the shine at bay.

Highlighter

A no-makeup look is not complete without a natural glow, and for this, products without any obvious shimmers work best. Apply highlighters with a light hand to maintain a fresh complexion!

Mascara

No-makeup makeup calls for a lengthening mascara that separates the lashes, so say no to clumpy formulas that don't hold your curl!

Lip and Cheek Tint

We recommend veering away from powder blushes and liquid lipsticks for this look, because they tend to make the skin look more powdery and the lips too unnaturally matte. Lip tints, lipsticks, and cheek tints will add color to your face without being too obvious that you used makeup.

Mist

A finishing spray isn't a must for everyone, but if you find that your makeup looks quite powdery, a few spritzes can provide a skin-like glow you'll surely love. Bring a travel-sized mist with you in your bag for midday makeup refreshes!
