No Makeup, Makeup Tutorial

Hey everyone!
I wanted to do a no makeup, makeup tutorial for you today, because I know a lot of people are trying to experiment with this type of minimalist makeup in the summer! So this is my take on the no makeup trend!

Face: I didn't do any face makeup, but if you are someone who likes to wear foundation daily, I suggest going with a BB cream or a tinted moisturizer  Something that will even out your skin, but won't look cakey or obvious. I also didn't use any blush, but if you're going to, use a matte or satin finish shade and if you use a bronzer, use a matte one. 

Eyes: I filled in my brows to give more definition to my face. Then I primed my eyes and took a neutral, matte, skin tone shade all over my lid. I used MAC Brulee. Then I took a deeper matte brown shade (MAC Espresso) and applied that to the outer portion of the crease and eye and blended super well. This gave definition, but it isn't super apparent that you're wearing makeup. I smudged a little black gel liner in the outer 1/3 of my eye and applied 1 thin coat of mascara for separation and definition, but not crazy length or volume. 

Lips: I'm just wearing a clear lip balm, but if you wanted a little color, I would go for a tinted lip balm in a more neutral color. 

I hope that this tutorial was useful for all of you, and let me know in the comments whether you're jumping on the no makeup, makeup trend or if you like the dramatic makeup!


  1. I definitely do this look a lot in the summer time! The best part though is that a matte no makeup makeup look is going to be super trendy for fall so we're already aheaded of the game ☆

  2. I think this look is great because it works every season! It looks super chic in the fall and winter with a deep lip!
