How To Do The ‘No Make-Up’ Make-Up Look IRL

For that #Iwokeuplikethis look, every day…

In partnership with Pearl Drops

Everyone knows that the whole ‘no make-up make-up’ look, isn’t as easy as it seems. In fact, being able to look like you’ve just rolled out of bed looking like a Victoria’s Secret model often takes way more prep than we’d like to admit to. But there are some easy ways you can get that glow…

Ace Your Base

A no make-up look starts with great skin. But remember to keep your base light! A highlighting primer like MAC Strobe Cream, £24.50 is perfect for giving skin a ‘lit from within’ glow. Then use NARS Soft Matte Complete Concealer, £23 to spot-conceal any blemishes and redness. If you can’t live without foundation, try a sheer finish, like bareMinerals Complexion Rescue Tinted Hydrating Gel Cream, £22.95 for a natural coverage.

Perfect Your Smile

A white smile makes EVERYTHING better, and when you’re going for a no make-up look, your smile is key. Pearl Drops Instant Natural White Toothpolish,RRP £6.99 uses activated charcoal to clean and whiten and optical brighteners give an instant whitening effect for a quick boost.

Hello Bright Eyes

Swap your glossy black mascara for a more natural brown. You’ll still get the lash definition you need, without looking too “done.” Make sure you curl your lashes beforehand, and for an extra wide-awake look, line your waterline with a nude liner. We love NYX Professional Makeup Wonder Pencil in the shade 01 Light, £4

Pop Of Colour

Finish off your look with a swirl of blusher. Use a cream blush like Maybelline Baby Lips Balm & Blush, £4.99 to give skin a natural sheen and highlight. We love the Innocent Peach shade as it’s universally flattering on all skin tones.
