My No Make-up Look




Well hello,

I generally love wearing smoky eyes and fun lip colors, but most of the time I wear very simple and natural look. I just don´t see the need to wear a ton of make-up during the day. So I wanted to share the products I use on a daily basis to achieve a flawless no make-up look.

I recently bought Nude Illusion Foundation from Catrice Cosmetics in the lightest shade available, 010 Nude Ivory and honestly I have quite a love and hate relationship with it. The first few days I was applying it with my hands and it looked just awful. But then I tried using the Blending Sponge and I have to say it leaves quite a natural, dewy finish. Still it only lasts a few hours before if starts fading away. I will keep on trying it out and let you know the final result.

Under my eyes I use Maybelline´s Instant Anti-Age Effect The Eraser Eye concealer, shade Fair 03. I love the applicator and the way it brightens up my whole face. At the moment this is my  fave concealer for under eye dark circles, but you can use it also for highlighting or blemishes.

For my blemishes I always use my holy grail concealer, Bourjois Healthy Mix in the shade 51.It is thicker consistency which covers all the imperfections. you can read my full review here.

In addition to having dark under eye circles I also have dark eyelids. I usually use the foundation to conceal them but lately I have been using Mac Pro Longwear Paint Pot in the color Soft Ochre. Even when I don´t put on any eyeshadow, I think it lasts longer and It doesn´t crease.

I top everything with  Translucent Rimmel Stay Matte Powder to set the concealer and prevent it from creasing and I also use it on my T-zone, which tends to get quite oily.

With light  hand I contour and bronze with my holy grail Essence Bronzing Powder in Love to be Matt (02). As  the name suggests it is a Matt bronzer with orange undertones. And I add a bit of natural color Blush. My favourite blush is Rose Whisper from Gosh.

For my eyes I like to use brown eyeliner, because it looks more subtle and natural. I use Catrice Cosmetics Khol Kajal eyeliner. My favourite Mascara is still 2000 Calorie from Max Factor. Lastly I add a highlighter under my brow bone, inner corners of the eyes and on a cupids bow. It comes in a form of jumbo pencil and it is Catrice Cosmetics Eyebrow Lifter in number 010, Lift Me Up, Scotty!


I know it sounds a lot, but every product adds something special and needed. Again, I use everything with light hand so it ends up looking effortless and natural. I hope you enjoyed this.




Love,
