It’s official. Heavy makeup is out, and beautiful, fresh, off-duty makeup is in - and we couldn’t be happier. With the right products in your makeup stash, you can easily achieve that barely-there glow all the celebs are rocking on Instagram.
As you’re working your way through these beauty must-haves, remember the ‘no-makeup’ makeup mantra: Less is more!
1. Cleanse Your Skin
For a flawless finish, you need to start with a clean canvas. So, kick off your routine with a good cleanse using the RAWW Cosmetics Purify-ME Gentle Cleanser. It’s packed with hydrating and brightening superfood ingredients like WildBerry Harvest™ and Vitamin C, and that base is essential for the ‘no-makeup’ makeup look.
2. Hydrate, Hydrate, Hydrate
Now that your skin is squeaky-clean, give it a glowy head-start with a hit of hydration. If your skin is on the dry side, warm a few drops of the RAWW Cosmetics Recover-ME Face Oil into your palm, and then massage it into your skin. This will help to boost circulation and refresh dull, tired skin. Plus, it’s full of superfoods for glowing skin. If your skin is oily, move right to the RAWW Cosmetics Activate-ME Face Moisturiser - and do the same thing. A little self-massage goes a long way in getting a dewy glow!
3. Use A Dewy Primer
Let your face oil and moisturiser absorb for a few minutes, and then continue prepping your skin with a primer. Prepping really is the key to success here! A primer smooths the skin’s surface and stops your makeup from separating or settling into your skin, so it lasts longer. Think of it as a barrier between your makeup and your skin. The RAWW Cosmetics Wilderberry Boost Primer is infused with vitamins and nutrients for that healthy, hydrated, lit-from-within glow.
4. Apply A BB Cream
The best makeup for the ‘no-makeup’ look is…very little makeup. Steer clear of full-coverage foundations and opt for a BB cream like the RAWW Cosmetics Wilderberry Glow BB Cream. The cream will hydrate your skin, even out your skin tone and cover up any blemishes - while still letting those features like freckles shine through. To create a beautiful base, lightly apply the product and blend as you go. Remember, less is more!
5. Reach For A Creamy Concealer
RAWW Cosmetics Camouflage Concealer Pencil, we’re looking at you! Dab this lightweight concealer on any imperfections, redness, or areas where you want extra coverage - such as around the nose or eyes. Using your ring finger, pat in the concealer until it’s fully blended (like you would with an eye cream). The warmth of your fingers will help the product to melt in without creasing.
6. Shape Your Brows
Groomed brows will make you look polished with very little effort, so they’re essential to the ‘no-makeup’ makeup look. First, brush your brows up and away using the spoolie end of the RAWW Cosmetics Babassu Oil Brow Fix. This will help you frame your face. Then, use your natural arch as a guide to shape and fill in your brows with light, feathery strokes. The creamy pencil on the other end glides on like a dream, and stays put all day thanks to the organic beeswax.
7. Stick To A Minimal Eye Makeup Look
When you’re going for the ‘I-woke-up-like-this’ look, you want to keep your eyes as natural as possible. But you can still add a little definition. To brighten up your eyes and make them look more awake, curl your lashes and apply mascara to your top lashes only. If you have blonde lashes, choose a brown mascara for a softer, more natural look. The RAWW Cosmetics Moringa Lash Impact Mascara is the ultimate multi-tasker: It coats your lashes and helps to stimulate growth thanks to the superfood powers of Moringa Oil.
8. Warm Up Your Complexion
Now that your base, brows and eyes are done, it’s time to add some colour to your complexion. Swipe the RAWW Cosmetics Macadamia Crush Bronzer on the areas where the sun naturally kisses your skin, like your forehead, cheekbones and the bridge of the nose. Brush a little bronzer on your decolletage too. Next, give your cheeks a rosy flush with the RAWW Cosmetics Pomegranate Blush Crush.
9. Amp Up Your Glow
Want to take your glow up a notch? Brighten up your eyes even more by dabbing a little highlighter to the inner corners. You can also pat the RAWW Cosmetics Acai Berry Glow Illuminator to the top of your cheekbones and under your brow bone. The creamy formula melts seamlessly into your skin.
10. Finish With A Lip Oil
Last but not least, complete your ‘no-makeup’ look with a tinted lip oil. We love the RAWW Cosmetics Fruit Fusion Lip Oil because it’s super hydrating and non-sticky, and adds a hint of sheer colour to your pout.
