The best part is everybody can pull it off, and it takes minimal time, money, and zero effort. Trust us, a minimal makeup pack is perfect for every skin tone, facial features, and face shape.

If you seriously want to master the no-makeup look, you are going to love our millennial guide to a minimal makeup pack for an effortless yet flawless finish.

#1 Cleanse & Moisturize

If you seriously want to nail the no-makeup look, always cleanse and moisturize your face before your makeup. This helps in creating a better base. Trust us, it makes all the difference in the world. The cleanser clarifies the skin and eliminates any excess oil, pollutants, and dirt. On the other hand, the moisturizer balances the oil and gives a dewy or matte glow.

We highly recommend adding this vitamin C cleanser for naturally bright and glowing skin. For the perfect moisturization experience, we recommend the Dream Glow Moisture Cream because it is completely lightweight and immensely hydrating at the same time. Plus, they are clean and super easy to layer.

#2 For The Perfect No-Makeup Look, Conceal; Don’t Cover

If you are going for a nude make look, you need to resist the urge to cover your face with a foundation. Moisturize your face well to achieve that fresh skin effect, and use a concealer to conceal all the spots and blemishes. However, if you find your skin uneven, you must use a dewy water-based product for an even and glowing complexion. Don’t overdo it, though.

#3 Say No To The Bright Blush; Go For A Soft Bronzer

Your bright pink blush is a big no-no when you want to achieve the perfect no-makeup look. Go for a skin-toned bronzer instead. Also, avoid contouring your face; it may look too made up. Rather use shadows with an angled brush for a subtly sculpted yet natural look.

#4 Toss The Eyeliner & Pick A Mascara

For an ideal nude makeup look, you need to go soft on the eyes. Remember, the goal is to give a faux natural look. So, you will need black mascara, an eyelash curler, and a neutral eyeshadow palette. The trick is to skip the eyeliner, focus on the lashes and pick a subtle eyeshadow to cover any discoloration. Avoid any glitter or dark colors.

#5 Make Your Brows Stand Out!

Let your brows stand out. You can use a spoolie brush to set the hair in a defined position. Again, you don’t want to make them look too made up. So, avoid filling it with big solid strokes with a pencil; go for smaller and finer strokes that look natural. For perfectly natural-looking brows, you must use an eyebrow gel.

#6 Pick The Perfect Nude Lipstick (According To Your Skin Type)

For a completely nude makeup look, you need to pick a nude lipstick according to your skin tone. Go for a matte nude shade to simply enhance your natural lip color. You can go for nude lipstick with the lightest shade of pink or coral. Remember, your goal is to make your lipstick not look like lipstick. Apply a lighter shade, do not overdo it.

Hectic schedules, late nights and not getting enough sleep, we all have those days. Here are 5 simple ways that I swear by, and are sure to work to fake a good night sleep and make you look more awake:

Forget your morning cup of joy, use Clarins Multi-Active Eye on a daily basis to cheat your way out of
looking tired. You’ll look better than you did yesterday morning with the cream’s gel texture that instantly soothes eye contours which reduces fine lines and leaves peepers shiny and wide. It keeps eyes looking younger, fresher, brighter by visibly minimizing first lines and signs of fatigue—including dark circles and puffiness. Especially on those days where I get like 5 hours of restless sleep and Clarins Multi Active Eye makes it look like I have had 12 hours of blissful rest. This cream has literally worked wonders for me and have made-to-the list of one of my must-haves 🙂

Hide those horrible dark circles by applying concealer over them. If they are really bad, apply a layer of color corrector to neutralize their color. Then, apply a shade of concealer that is one or two shades lighter than your skin tone on top. This will hide dark circles, brighten up the eye area
and make you look like you’ve had a good 8 hours of sleep the night before.

Curling your lashes has been an old and well-known effective way to make your eyes look open and that makes you look awake. Place the curler as close as possible to the base of your lashes and gently squeeze. Then, move the curler a bit further up towards the tip and squeeze again. This will make the curl look more natural. Hold your lashes in the curler for at least 30 seconds to get a serious curl that will last all day. Apply a couple of coats of mascara on top and bottom lashes this will make you look more awake and less tired.

Another trick to open up the eyes and make them look brighter is to apply white eyeliner on your waterline. Anything that is very light or off-white will do the trick. Light inner eye liner makes the whites of your eyes appear larger, creating the illusion that you’re wide awake

When your eyes are tired, divert attention from them and draw it to your beautiful pout instead. Add a pop to them by applying a shimmery, bright, pigmented lip gloss on your them or opt for a colorful and intense lipstick and add a touch of gloss in the center of your pout. This way the focus will be on your lips and nobody will notice your eyes.

Do share with me if you have any tricks, as to how you look well rested on these kind of days!
