The term no makeup makeup is something that sounds slightly ridiculous doesn't it? But as the warmer months are creeping up on us the appeal to wear a full heavy face of makeup is minimal. Here are 5 of my favourite products that meet the no makeup makeup brief perfectly.
ERBORIAN CC CRÈME*: This hybrid product between a primer and moisturiser is the perfect option to be worn either alone or underneath another base for a seriously flawless skin look. It contains colour correcting pigments which create an even skin tone without the need for dozens of correctors, concealers or a heavy foundation. As well as giving a minimal yet flawless coverage it boosts radiance in the skin. So is the perfect option for stressed and tired complexions that are completely lack lustre.
BALANCE ME TINTED WONDER EYE CREAM*: Often concealers can look either look too heavy under the eyes or be too illuminating so they create a reverse panda effect. This new release from Balance Me is a hydrating eye cream that can help combat puffiness. As well as adding coverage to disguise any dark circles whilst still feeling lightweight on the skin. It can be used not only under the eye to cover up any unsightly tones but also over the lid to help neutralise any veins.
TOO FACED CHAMPAGNE SHADOW INSURANCE: When used alone this primer from Too Faced can do wonders for the eye. Not only does it deposit a tiny amount of shimmer to the lid which always looks beautiful. It neutralises the skin and makes things look brighter and healthier and creates an even skin tone. Of course, it's main use is to go underneath other shadows and enhance them. But it works beautifully alone and is a key part of any no makeup, makeup look.
PERRICONE MD NO HIGHLIGHTER HIGHLIGHTER*: Often powder highlighters can look heavy and overpowering on the skin. This beautiful liquid from skincare brand Perricone MD provides a soft focus glow to any areas that it's applied. It contains light reflecting pearls that bring natural radiance to the complexion. Even though it's a liquid it doesn't look wet on the skin and it settles down to an almost satin finish.
PERRICONE MD NO LIPGLOSS LIPGLOSS*: This isn't your typical lipgloss or even liquid lipstick for that matter. It smoothes over any imperfections on the lips whilst depositing a subtle rosy pink that could brighten any complexion or skin tone. Containing an SPF it's the perfect lip option for the warmer months. So you don't have to fret about burning the delicate skin on your lips. It adds a beautiful glossy sheen without being sticky or tacky and can be blotted down to more of a matte stain if you want to go even more minimal with your lip look. Taking into consideration it's lightweight consistency it lasts surprisingly well on the lips and wears evenly throughout the day and never gathers in the corners of the mouth.
