5 Steps To A Beautiful Flawless No Foundation Makeup Look [VIDEO]
It shouldn't take much to achieve a flawless "no makeup" makeup look, and sometimes, all it takes is one product.
So today, I will be sharing with you the product that has allowed me to say goodbye to my foundation, as well as tips on how I perfected my minimalistic makeup routine. #NoMakeupNoProblem
1. USE A PRIMER
Priming the skin is very important when doing any type of makeup look! This step, as the name suggests, prepares the skin for all the makeup that are to be put on top of it.There are so many types of primers in the market right now, so find one that caters to your skin's needs.
The primer that I have been using recently is Perricone MD's No Makeup Instant Blur Primer, and this is the product that has allowed me to say goodbye to my foundation and be confident in my own skin! Not only does it help smoothen out my skin with Alpha Lipoic Acid that blurs out imperfections, redness, and wrinkles, it will also improve my skin's appearance overtime, so I like to think that this primer is both a makeup and skincare product. It's very lightweight, it's unscented, helps reduce shine throughout the day, and it's also great to use for touchups!

2. CORRECT UNDER EYE DARKNESS AND CONCEAL BLEMISHES
The next step is to conceal all the darkness on the face. For my under eye circles, I like to use a corrective concealer that is a peachy or orange color to cancel out the dark blues and purples of my bags. Doing this step makes the biggest difference in the world, and if you struggle with super dark circles, I encourage you to try this trick out. After correcting, I go in with a brightening concealer to give my overall complexion life. Since I won't be using a foundation, I use a full coverage concealer to help hide discoloration around my face.
3. SET FACE WITH A POWDER
I am an oily girl, so powder is very essential in my makeup routine. To avoid creasing around my eyes, I use a translucent loose powder, and I dust the remaining powder all over my face. This step will help lock in the liquid products in place, and will help keep the oils at bay.
4. ADD COLOR AND DIMENSION BACK ONTO FACE
Usually, after powdering, I end up looking pasty, so my fourth step would be to bring back some color and dimension to the face with my favorite powder products. If you guys have been following me for awhile, you know my lineup: bronzer, contour, blush, and highlight! But honestly, you can get away with just adding blush, but doing everything else is just so much more fun!
5. MAKE FACIAL FEATURES POP : BROWS, EYES, & LIPS
And finally, make your favorite facial feature pop! Do you love your eyes? Apply heaps of mascara! Do you like your lips? Kill em with your confident smile accompanied by your favorite red lipstick! Are you obsessed with making your brows look on fleek? Go for it!
