All The Products You Need To Nail Natural Makeup

From ‘skin work’ to soft focus skin, if Instagram hashtags are anything to go by, the no-makeup makeup look has pipped cut creases and sharp contouring to the post as one of the most popular beauty trends.

Contrary to popular belief, however, you don’t need to have flawless skin or a makeup bag bursting with 20 different products to nail the subtle, everyday look.

Ahead, three professional makeup artists reveal how to achieve natural makeup, whatever your skin tone, plus all the beauty buys (from mascara to blush) that’ll get you there in minutes.

Kenneth Soh, professional makeup artist

My Celebrity Life – Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer

“An under-eye concealer instantly brightens up both the face and eyes to create that covetable wide-eyed look.”Avoid drawing a triangle of concealer underneath your eye. Instead, delicately dot the product where you think you need it most and blend in circular motions using a small brush.

My Celebrity Life – Glossier Boy Brow

“I always opt for a tinted or coloured brow gel. Glossier’s Boy Brow defines, grooms and strengthens up brows to create a frame on a face.”Simply whip this through your brows and the pigment will cling to sparse hairs, beefing them up instantly. 

My Celebrity Life – DIOR Rosy Glow

“This brings colour, health and youth to a complexion, but you can opt for either a powder, liquid or cream.”Concentrate this blush to the apples of the cheeks for a youthful flush. 

My Celebrity Life – Fenty Beauty Gloss Bomb Universal Lip Luminizer

“Tinted lip gloss may not be as cool as a matte lip, but dewy fresh lips is hard to beat for natural prettiness.”Dot this gloss in the centre of the lips and blend outwards with your finger.

My Celebrity Life – Eyeko Sport Waterproof Mascara

“As well as a lash curler, invest in a waterproof mascara. This lends a wide-awake effect to any eye with minimal effort.”To achieve the doe-eyed look, apply to your lower lashes, too.

“When you are doing quick, minimal makeup, you don’t need a heavy foundation. I love that this NARS concealer can be applied wherever you need it and still look natural. It’s great for dark circles, around the nose and over blemishes. At a push, you can use it all over, too.”Invest in a small, fluffy brush to blend this ultra creamy concealer seamlessly.

My Celebrity Life – Dior Backstage Eye Palette in Warm Neutrals

“If you have a palette with matte brown shades you can dress your eyes and your brows. I love Dior Backstage Eye Palette in Warm Neutrals, as it is multifunctional. It allows to create a minimal face but ramp it up if you need to.”Ruby’s Magnetic Brush Set can be used for eyes, brows and lips.

My Celebrity Life – Jillian Dempsey Petal Cheek Tint

“Jillian Dempsey Cheek Tint is a foolproof cheek blush that enlivens your face. Available in multiple shades, use your fingers to apply and blend for a pop of colour.”Use a damp Beautyblender to ensure the finish is natural, not doll-like.

My Celebrity Life – NudeStix Nude Plumping Lip Glace
NudeStix Nude Plumping Lip Glace
“The Nudestix Nude Plumping Lip Glace has mild plumping qualities and a hint of colour and gloss. It’s like your lips but better.”Skip the lip liner and use the soft doe-foot applicator to apply all over.

My Celebrity Life – Benefit BADgal Bang Mascara

“benefit’s Bad Gal Bang will give you beautifully defined lashes with volume and length.”Wedge the brush into the root of your lash and wiggle upwards for subtle definition.

“I use this for a natural, no-makeup makeup glowy look that works well to even out skin tone.”Gabriella also recommends Hollywood Flawless Filter. Apply it over moisturiser, concentrating on the key highlighting points (cheekbone, brow bone, inner corner of the eye and Cupid’s bow) for an all-day, effortless glow.

My Celebrity Life – Rodial Glamolash Mascara Skinny Black

“This is a great daytime mascara. It perfectly lengthens, separates and lifts lashes for a gorgeous full and fluttery effect. The skinny mascara wand also allows for precise application from root to tip.”Position the brush vertically to apply mascara to the lower lashes to avoid overloading them.

My Celebrity Life – Fenty Beauty Pro Filtr Instant Retouch Concealer
Fenty Beauty Pro Filt’r Instant Retouch Concealer
“This is my favourite go-to concealer. It gives amazing coverage for under eyes and blemishes, yet blends into the skin so well, it looks like you’re wearing nothing at all. It comes in a great range of shades to suit all skin tones, too.”Thanks to the great coverage, this can be used in place of foundation.

My Celebrity Life – Dr Lipp Original Nipple Balm for Lips
Dr. Lipp Original Nipple Balm for Lips
“This is my all-time favourite for lips.The balm keeps your skin hydrated and healthy all day long and is a great natural-looking alternative to lipstick or gloss.” Team this with a nude lip liner in a shade slightly darker than your skin tone to create naturally fuller looking lips if you want to dial things up.

My Celebrity Life – RMS Beauty Lip2Cheek
RMS Beauty Lip2Cheek
“On cheeks I love to use the RMS Beauty Lip2Cheek pots. Simply use your fingertip to apply the product. The creamy, easy-to-use texture gives you an effortless blushed look which is perfect for a daytime, no-makeup makeup vibe.”This also doubles up as tinted lip balm. Apply to lips and blot using your fingertip.
