THE NO-MAKEUP LOOK

Untitled-2

I have been reading about beauty trends lately and must say that this one I enjoy the most – the no-makeup look. Too much make-up has never been my thing so this emerging beauty standard is quite respectable. Here’s how I do it myself:

No-makeup look trend

For a good no-makeup look before applying foundation I put on my face Alteya Organics Nourishing Face Serum. It is excellent for any type of skin, as it has this amazing balancing effect of natural oils.

I’m a big fan of Guerlain’s cosmetics and I use PARURE DE LUMIÈRE Light-Diffusing Foundation #04 for a skin infused with light. After applying just a small amount of it, I move on to my brows, filling them with Météorites Blossom Ecrin Sourcils Eyebrow Kit. Then, I put on CILS D’ENFER MAXI LASH MASCARA for extra volume and curl sculpting. To achieve a delicate bronzing look I rely on TERRACOTTA Light Sheer Bronzing Powder #03 – frankly, the best I have ever used. Lastly, I apply a small amount of Guerlain’s GLOSS D’ENFER INTENSE COLOUR & SHINE BARE LIP SENSATION #402 for a finishing touch.

I read in an interview of Gwyneth Paltrow that beauty is about feeling comfortable in your own skin. To me a woman needs only as much makeup as to accentuate on her feminine loveliness. What’s more, I myself love the confidence less make-up gives me. And to persuade you further, I would add in a recent study revealing that men fancy women with less makeup (TIME).

Ultimately, make-up is about creating an image, and why not build a natural and apparently more attractive representation of ourselves. The key phrase you only need to remember is “just a small amount“.

Ciao!

    Hello there, I think your web site could possibly be having internet browser compatibility problems.
    When I look at your website in Safari, it looks
    fine however, when opening in Internet Explorer, it has some
    overlapping issues. I just wanted to provide you with a quick heads up!
    Other than that, great blog!

    Denina your skin looks flawless… I’m sure you’re one of those girls who looks better without make up than with lots of heavy slap! Thank goodness you don’t wear overpowering make up. Keep doing what you’re doing, the no make up look is just stunning on you :)
