The Best Products For A No-Makeup Makeup Look


While we’re all about fearless beauty and trying new things over here at Glitter Guide, we’re also huge advocates of going the au naturel route. But this doesn’t always mean heading out of the house barefaced! The “no-makeup makeup” look — contradictory as it may initially sound — is one of our favorites: it’s simple, effective and, most importantly, it’s fast (seriously — five minutes max!). Ahead, you’ll find a slew of products we turn to when we feel like rockin’ this fresh-faced look.

1. Perricone MD No Foundation Foundation Serum ($55): We adore this ultra-lightweight base for its anti-aging properties and super natural finish. It allows our real skin to shine through, which is exactly why it’s so perfect for this look.
2. NARS Sheer Glow Foundation ($45): For those who prefer a bit more coverage but still want a natural, glowing finish, this cult-status foundation is the one. You’ll thank us later!
3. Clinique Chubby Stick Moisturizing Cheek Colour Balm ($21): Creamy and completely foolproof, this skin-brightening cheek balm is a total game-changer.
4. Sephora Collection Things Are Looking Up Eye Lash Curler ($15): We can’t get enough of this fabulously cute and compact curler. The best part? Thanks to its small size, we can bring it with us anywhere for touch-ups!
5. Clarins ‘3-Dot Liner’ Eyeliner ($26): Accentuate your peepers and make lashes appear fuller with this three-prong tip liner. The result is subtle definition that couldn’t be more on-point for a “no-makeup makeup” look.
6. Smashbox Always Sharp Waterproof Kohl Liner in Bare ($20): A brightening flesh-toned liner is another product that takes this look to the next level. This waterproof, self-sharpening one is our must-have, especially after a late night of wine and Netflix.
