No Makeup Makeup Look

October 5, 2015


One of the things I’ve been looking forward to about a new season is getting my skin back under control. The summer months totally mess with me and cause my face to breakout nonstop. Something about the heat, sweat, sunscreen, makeup, etc. I feel like even doing masks regularly isn’t helping like it usually does. I’ve been wanting to give my face a little bit of a break from all the makeup but that’s unfortunately not a good look for me. If you’re one of those few people who go outside without one stitch of makeup… I envy you! Seriously!
I’ve always loved Neutrogena’s products, like their cleanser in particular {the orange one smells so good!}, so when I heard about their SkinClearing®Liquid Makeup line, I was curious to check it out. The line features oil-free and non-comedogenic products that have their famous MicroClear® technology in it. They treat existing blemishes, while also preventing emerging ones, and bonus, it has salicylic acid in it too!
I thought it would be fun to put together this No Makeup Makeup Look {such an oxymoron!}, because I feel like having these products on my face is better than nothing at all since they’re actually fixing the problem!
I started with the NEUTROGENA®SkinClearing® Liquid Makeup as a base. It has a medium coverage but doesn’t feel too thick or heavy. It glides right on and is pretty breathable. I was surprised that this looked just as good at the end of the day, too!
My eyelashes stick straight out so I’m always using an eyelash curler to give them a little extra lift. This is one thing I feel like I have to do every day. It makes such a difference!
A few quick swipes of mascara give your lashes a little length and make them stand out.
I apply a little bit of bronzer to my cheekbones for a little bit of definition. Lately I’ve been doing a subtle contour, and this product is great for that. I sweep my brush over the color and apply lightly to the area below my cheekbones, starting from the ears and ending in the middle of my cheeks. You can also add a little bit along the sides of your forehead and temples, as well as to the small area right below your chin. You don’t want to go crazy with the contouring when you’re trying to keep it natural. I like the NEUTROGENA® Healthy Skin Blends in Sunkissed. Even that product is good for your skin because it‘s made with Vitamin C and botanical conditioners. 
Just a little bit of blush on the apples of the cheeks gives you some color and a healthy glow!
To finish off my natural makeup look I applied a sheer lipstick. It’s subtle but still makes a difference!
Tada! No Makeup Makeup Look is complete! What do you think?


I’m surprised I’m
just now trying these products. The fact that they do double duty (makeup
coverage + skin benefits) is pretty awesome. Like the look? Share with me and
@Neutrogena your tricks to feel #BeautifulBecause!
