Toned down, super subtle makeup has been a big trend recently. We love the idea of embracing who you are and letting your real self shine through — literally! Instead of caking on makeup and clogging up your pores, consider taking a more natural approach that’ll do your skin a solid favor too. From a foundation that enhances your skin (instead of covering it up) to a lip product that adjusts specifically to you, here are three of Influenster’s product picks that’ll help you nail the no-makeup makeup look. Head over to Influenster to see the other products on this amazing list!
FOR THE FACE
Probably the one product that causes the most anxiety for those who wave the anti-makeup flag is a foundation. If full-coverage, Kim Kardashian-esque foundation just isn’t your cup of tea, you might be surprised to learn there are several lightweight foundations that can cover and even out skin without the heavy feel. We’re fans of bareMinerals bareSkin Pure Brightening Serum Foundation ($29), which is a super lightweight fluid that buffs into skin for a more even tone. This foundation might be infused with antioxidant protectors and SPF, but you wouldn’t know it — it’s so light that it feels like air!
FOR THE EYES
Eye makeup can be intimidating. Lots of us love the look of it but dread the actual application. So much can go wrong with eyelash curlers, and don’t even get us started on drawing the perfect cat eye! For anyone who simply doesn’t have time for that, get ready to meet two of the most legit eye tools in our kit: Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Shadow Pencil ($20) and d.j.v. MIARAY Fiberwig Mascara ($18). The cult-favorite eyeliner goes on smoothly and simply — enough said. Simply glide on your liner and it won’t budge for hours. You can even blend it to get a seriously simple smokey eye. When it comes to mascara, the last thing any makeup hater needs is clumps that make lashes heavy and tacky. This mascara is insanely popular in Japan, and for good reason. Tiny fibers adhere to lashes with each application, making them appear longer. No need for a fancy eyelash curler or falsies; this lightweight formula has you covered on both fronts!
FOR THE LIPS
There’s absolutely zero fuss with Catrice Tinted Glow Lip Balm ($6). Anti-lipstick wearers can still get the color they crave from a balm they love, thanks to this find. Designed to react with your body’s own pH, the balm tints lips a different shade of pink, so no two pouts will be the same! Color, hydration and an affordable price tag? SOLD!
