The best part, you don’t need to be a master to get this look. A messy bun and you’ve got a chic and effortless look to go for.

Here is how to master the no makeup, makeup technique from start to finish:


Start with a skincare routine. The key to having flawless no makeup, makeup look is to have a good skin regimen as it will keep your skin healthy and glowing without any makeup too. There are a lot of ways to get your skin glowing but choosing the right product for your skin is the start of your journey. Always cleanse your skin first as it set the tone for the rest of your process. A good cleanser deeply cleans and purifies all the pores. Then use an exfoliating mask that removes all the dirt and makes your skin healthy from underneath. Pixi glow mud cleanser deeply cleans and purifies pores but is gentle enough for all skin types.

Now that your skincare routine is ready to go, it is time to prime the skin. Primer is very helpful for no makeup, makeup looks as it smoothens the skin and creates a perfect base. It creates that extra layer between your skin and the product, offering up a smooth surface that helps the makeup stay put and last longer. The pore professional pearl primer from Benefit is amazing to cover all the pores and it gives a fine look.

Foundation is always optional. Some people like to skin this step and only go with primer while others for a lighter dewy foundation. BB cream is a great pick for this one. It gives sheer and buildable coverage. Ig cover, primer, SPF, moisturizer. Try the Maybelline Dream Flawless Nude Fluid- Touch Foundation if you want to achieve that dewy, fresh glow. Use a buffing brush to blend in the product.

Brightening your eyes and banishing any dark spots or redness is what’s next. Use a concealer on areas you want some extra coverage, like your under eyes, around your nose, or any other blemishes you have. Just like you did with your foundation, apply the concealer also with a makeup blender.  Tarte shape tape concealer is the best for under eyes. It is very pigmented and won't create any creases and also stays very long.

It is always important to remove your makeup at the end of the day so that your skin can breathe and be wonderful always. Use micellar water from Maybelline and use a cotton pad to remove your makeup, and give extra attention to your eyes and lips as those two are the areas where the product is applied a lot and is difficult to remove. Then use a cleanser to remove all the residual makeup. Wash it off with lukewarm water. Apply a moisturizer and lip balm and you are done. Wake up with a beautiful face the next day!
