Natural is the new beauty.
When it comes to make up, less is definitely more! “No makeup” makeup is basically the bare minimum, focusing more on the steps of application than the number of products.
It is pretty much the biggest beauty trend these days on Instagram or Tiktok where fresh-flaced influencers serving up with juicy skin, brushed up brows, a little lash action and maybe a lip balm. Not much else.
So whether you’re wanting a fresh look for going back to the gym or are simply looking to take a more natural approach to beauty, We’ve broken down the best tips and tricks for this natural trend as well as rounded up our favorite products to get you there quick and easy.
1. Skin First
This look is all about glowing, natural skin. Easiest way to get that? Actually have glowy, natural skin. While not everyone has the amazing youthful glow, we know how to how fake it! Before embarking on this no makeup- makeup journey, indulge in some skin prep. Using a hydrating face mask before applying makeup makes sure the skin is already supple and moisturized.

3. Go light on the coverage
Steer clear of thick, full coverage foundations for this look. Tinted moisturizers, BB and CC creams give your skin some extra hydration and still allow some of your freckles, redness, and imperfections to shine through. Apply with a buffing foundation brush to cover more, or with a sponge to keep the dewiness.

6. Brush Up Brows
The best part of this look? Bushy, unruly brows are both accepted and ENCOURAGED. Enhance the beauty of your natural brows by simply using a eyebrow pencil and brushing them up and into place.
Define the brow shape with the tip of the pencil, create a natural shading and fill in the gaps in the brows.

7. Light Mascara or Skip It
The skin is the star of the show with this look, so it’s okay to go light on the lashes. Unless you have super dark lashes naturally, it just lightly opens your eyes without looking too heavy. Curl your lashes and apply a light mascara to the top and bottom lashes, or really go for the natural look and skip mascara altogether. Rock those natural lashes!
