If you're the kind of woman who would do a full face of makeup for weddings, reunions or just when you're in the mood for it, but would gravitate towards a natural look on most days, these hardworking products are for you. Because the secret to achieving the true 'no-makeup' makeup look really is about using beauty products that already make a big difference so you'll end up needing less makeup. Here are a few that you can try:
1. A creamy, all-over blush that you can apply on your lids, cheeks, and lips:
This one's highly pigmented, so a few dots go a long way.
TRY: BLK Cosmetics K-beauty Creamy All-Over Paint, P399, Zalora
2. ...Or a powder blush infused with highlight for a healthy-looking flush on the cheeks:
With this blush on's radiant finish and skin-brightening effect, you can skip reaching for any other product in your kikay kit.
TRY: Hourglass Cosmetics Ambient Lighting Blush in Luminous Flush, available at Sephora PH
FN TIP: You can swatch this highly-reviewed blush that's sold internationally at Sephora Philippine's Mini Beauty Studio in Forever 21, SM Megamall until July 3.
3. A liquid brow pen that creates the most natural-looking strokes:
This popular liquid brow pen has a light but buildable pigment, so you can fill in your arches without ever worrying about overdrawing them.
TRY: K-Palette Lasting 2-Way Eyebrow Liquid, P850, BeautyMNL and SM Beauty
4. A brow gel with a tiny, skinny brush applicator that lets you control and add just the right amount of tint to your brows:
You'll love this one if you hate ending up with an overdone-looking set of arches.
TRY: Sunnies Face Lifebrow Grooming Gel, P345, Lazada, Zalora, Glorietta, U.P. Town Center
5. A non-cakey powder if you want to skip wearing liquid foundation:
Just powder it on your T-zone to get rid of unwanted shine and to keep a natural look.
TRY: L'Oreal True Match Even Perfecting Powder Foundation, P400, Lazada
6. A full-coverage concealer that comes with a large, chunky applicator for more coverage:
Because it's full coverage, applying it on one's undereyes and T-zone will be enough to brighten a dull complexion—no need for a full face of foundation!
TRY: L'Oreal Infallible Full Wear Concealer, P450, available at Lazada
7. A hydrating lip tint packed with argan oil to complete your natural, 'no-makeup' makeup look:
Lip tints let you enhance your natural lip color rather than fully covering it.
