How To Look Like You're Not Wearing Makeup
Celebrity hair and make-up artist, Nicole Abela, tells us how to nail the flawless no-makeup beauty look she created for Monika Radulovic
Step 1: Prep skin well with appropriate skincare for skin type.
Step 2: Apply Too Faced Primed & Poreless Primer all over face.
Step 3: Use a concealer under eyes, pressing it in with fingertips to really blend it into skin. I like IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eye Concealer. Also use the concealer to highlight the cupids bow, top of nose and in T-zone.
Step 4: Using a flat foundation brush, apply MAC Studio Face and Body Foundation to the face working from the inside, out.
Step 5: Contour face by applying bronzing powder high on the cheek bones, across top and outer edges of forehead, along jawline and on either side of the bridge of the nose. I used MAC Bronzer in Refined Golden.
Step 6: Brush and define brows using MAC Big Brow Pencil.
Step 7: For the eyes, apply MAC Pro Longwear Paint Pot in Bare Study over entire eye lid, Vintage Selection into the crease of the eyelid and Genuine Treasure under the bottom lash line.
step 8 : Curl lashes and apply MAC False Lashes Mascara to bottom and top lashes
Step 9: To set the makeup and achieve a natural appearance, spray the face with a mist of MAC Prep + Prime Fix +.
Step 10: Apply Benefit Benetint Cheek & Lip Stain to the lips then add a dab of lip balm or gloss to centre of lips.
