How To Achieve The Barely There Makeup Look
Posted by Laura Rose in Makeup
Barely there makeup has taken the world by storm over the last couple of years. Along with K-Beauty it was probably one of the biggest makeup trends of 2018. So in theory barely there makeup should be really quick and easy right? How long can it take when only a few products are being used? Ahhh, how naive.
Barely there makeup can take just as long as a full face beat and is very hard to get right. I personally don't like natural makeup as I like to have all my imperfections covered, but that style does suit a lot of people.
So how can you achieve the perfect no makeup makeup look without spending hours in front of the mirror in the morning and hundreds of pounds on new products? I've put together my top picks of products that will leave you naturally radiant in no time!
If you want glowing skin then you need to start using this product! Charlotte Tilbury's Hollywood Flawless Filter is a gorgeous complexion booster that will give everyone lit from within skin in seconds. It's so versatile; it can be used as a primer, a liquid highlighter and mixed in with your normal foundation. You can't go far wrong when you start your makeup routine with this wonder product!
Now this product may be pricey but it's totally worth it! Chanel's CC Cream Complete Correction with SPF 50 does exactly what it says on the tin, plus more. It unifies, moisturises, corrects, protects and boosts skin's glow day after day. Skin instantly feels supple and comfortable while blemishes, dark spots and redness are dramatically reduced. What more could you want?
This creamy, liquid concealer from Nude by Nature instantly covers dark circles, disguises puffiness, hyperpigmentation and blemishes without looking thick or cakey. It is also crease free and provides hydration and antioxidant benefits from its key ingredients Vitamin E, Jojoba and Shea butter.
This Soleil Contouring Compact by Tom Ford is the perfect product to own when recreating barely there makeup. Firstly because you have 3 products in 1 (highlighter, bronzer and blush). And secondly because the lightweight powder formula glides onto the skin effortlessly with a soft, even, and natural finish.
Besides from glowy skin, full bushy brows are the epitome of barely there makeup. The Bushy Brow Strong Hold Gel by Lime Crime is the perfect product to achieve this as the spoolie is very small which helps to capture each and every hair and coat them evenly in product. Your brows will stay in shape all day and it will even give them a bit of extra volume.
Last but not least we have lips. And the Too Faced Lip Injection Power Plumping Lip Gloss is the perfect product to give you full, luscious lips fast. The gloss is a subtle pink colour and the natural botanicals in the formula smooth and moisturise and plump lips by 20%, perfect for adding emphasis to your lips without being too obvious.
