Whether you are going on a beach vacation, a road trip, or are simply wanting to go about your day without having to go through the morning makeup routine, every girl will experience those days when makeup is just not on the to-do list. When the mood strikes, take a looksy at this list for these beauty hacks for looking great without makeup. You don’t have to use paint to make you look presentable, in fact, there are many things you can do without even reaching for your beauty bag.
Always, always, always keep your skin moisturized. For whatever reason you are going without makeup, keeping moisturizer on your skin will add glow and even texture to the surface, even if it is not tinted. Moisturizer will help prevent dry and flakiness and balance out oils as well, so keeping a natural moisturizer on your skin, even one with SPF for sunny days is a must for a makeup free glow.
2. Pinch your cheeks
Many reasons people don’t wear makeup is because the face without blush or a tan can look a bit dull. People are attracted to rosy cheeks because it is a sign of life and youthfulness, but if you are going without makeup than you can gently pinch your cheeks instead. Doing so will bring blood flow to that area for naturally rosy cheeks.
3. Curl your eyelashes
Use an eyelash curler, or simply wet your fingers and press your eyelashes up into your brow/lid to give an attractive curl and lift to your eyes. If you are going mascara-free, this can make your eyes look more alert and open than if you left them flat.
4. Groom your eyebrows
Bushy eyebrows are coming back with a vengeance, and surely, they are beautiful. But if you are going for a clean-faced, trim, makeup-free look, then be sure to keep your eyebrows in check. Eyebrows are one thing that makes a huge difference but is often overlooked. Go to a professional threading salon for a clean, and even set of brows that wow without adding any extra color or eyeshadow. Use a brush, or your wet fingers to keep them in their proper shape.
5. Lovely lips
Without lipstick, your lips can fall into a duller color than you may want, biting your lips, or using a natural chapstick or moisturizer on your lips can bring life back to your kisser.
6. Bright smile
Having clean, white teeth is just as important as having clear skin to achieve a well-put together look without using makeup. Floss to clean the cracks and coconut oil pull or use a whitening toothpaste to whiten up and clean your teeth to make them a pearly white for the happy, natural, makeup-free look you are going for!
