There are hundreds of tutorials on the internet explaining how to use makeup to create a no-makeup look. Of course, all of these tutorials makes a person wonder why the writers and experts don’t just skip the makeup altogether, instead of providing a long list of products that make your skin look dewy or sun-kissed.
So rather than wear makeup that creates the illusion of not having makeup on, maybe you should read about the benefits of staying away from the makeup aisle and keeping a naked face.
Not all women have money to buy a truckload of makeup products, nor do they have the time. We can’t all dedicate 30 minutes in front of a mirror before work or school just to apply makeup because let’s face it: it takes us 30 minutes just to roll out of bed in the morning. And don’t forget that at the end of each day, you’ll need to spend even more time trying to get the products off of your face, which will cost more money as you’ll have to buy makeup remover to get the job done right.
Although the makeup models you see on boxes are beautiful with thick eyelashes, flush cheeks, and perfect eyebrows, there’s no way you’ll be able to look like their picture – even if you spend all day in front of the mirror. Oftentimes, product labels will claim to improve skin tone and texture, but unfortunately, they fail at delivering on those promises. So if you’re expecting perfect outcomes with mascara, you’re going to be disappointed because most of the brushes that are labeled "no clump" will leave you with clumps that have to be worked out with an eyelash brush.
Women who choose to go out with no makeup on tend to appear more youthful, compared to women who take the time to apply makeup. You could be adding years to your face by wearing makeup if you’re not using the right foundation formula or shade. After all, some foundations fall into the smallest of creases on your face, which draws attention to the wrong areas.
The term associated with women who don’t wear makeup is low maintenance, and it’s a compliment. You’ll find that being able to feel confident with no makeup will get you noticed because men like women who are comfortable with the face they were born with. In fact, a lot of men prefer women who aren’t fussing with lipsticks and blushes every time they need to go to the grocery store.
When you don’t wear makeup, you’re able to rub your eye as often as you’d like (although it’s not recommended), and you don’t have to visit the restroom for touchups. Plus your face can become oily with makeup, and this requires oil blotting sheets. For some makeup looks to be complete, you’ll even need fake eyelashes, and when you have an eyelash in your eye, this can become extremely troublesome.
Whatever your reason for not wearing makeup is, it’s important to still look your best, and be confident with your natural beauty.
Assuming you can closely follow the aforementioned seven points, you’ll be on your way to looking good with no makeup required.
