Beauty lovers come in all forms. Some are obsessed with haircare, some prefer the luxury of skincare, others crave makeup on makeup. And some just adore it all! If you happen to be a member of the no makeup club, we hear you! If full-coverage foundation, false lashes, contouring kits, and lipstick send you into a panic, take a deep breath. We rounded up the best makeup for those who hate makeup. Nothing heavy or cakey, here. Don't believe us, keep reading.
For the face:
Probably the one product that causes the most anxiety for those who wave the anti-makeup flag is foundation. If full-coverage, Kim Kardashian-eque 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 sans the heavy feel. We're fans of bareMinerals barePRO, which is a natural-matte liquid foundation that buffs into skin for a more even skin tone. This foundation might be infused with natural bamboo stem extract and papaya enzymes as well as SPF, but you wouldn't know it—it's so light, it feels like air!
For the eyes:
Another area those of us who like the look of makeup but hate the feel of it dread tackling is the eye area. 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, meet two of the easiest-to-use eye tools in our kit. Laura Merciers's cult-favorite Caviar Stick Eye Colour goes on smoothly and simply—no teeny tiny tips that require calligraphy skills, here! Simply glide on your liner or blend it out to get a seriously simple smokey eye. No tools, no trying. We'll take it.
And when it comes to mascara, the last thing any makeup hater needs is clumps that make lashes heavy and tacky. The brand new mascara from L'Oréal is already so popular that its made its way to the #1 mascara spot on Influenster. Plus, we've been swearing by the natural flutter the curved wand and lightweight formula deliver. One coat delivers more of an everyday look while a few layers can provide a more powerful impact should you get ambitious.
For the lips:
There's absolutely zero lining or smudging with Catrice's tinted lip balm. Anti-lipstick wearers can still get the color they crave from the 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? Where do we sign up?
For the face:
In a world of contouring, it can be more than a little daunting to try to master the bronzed look. What brush do I use? I put what shade, where? Don't let a little bronzing madness get the best of you. With this spray mist, you can get a healthy glow sans any self-tanner, any confusing contouring palettes, or fancy brushes.
For the cheeks:
The magic of BITE's multipurpose stick has been keeping us coming back for more day in and day out. The rich and creamy product has a number of uses in our beauty bag. First, it's a stellar option for a cheek tint. The array of natural colors make it a top choice for creating a quick flush with nothing but your fingers. Next, it's ideal for applying to the lips for a kiss of color. And lastly, we're fans of taking colors like Almond (above) and swiping on our lids for a very subtle and zero-fuss eye look.
For the brows:
This might be the easiest way to get Cara Delevingne-like brows—without being Cara Delevingne. A few brushes of this boosting-brow product and brows are fuller, darker, and bolder. Thanks to tiny fibers that attach themselves to your natural hairs, brows magically transform. Plus, there's zero fallout, no tackiness, and no-reapplying necessary. No one will ever know you're wearing makeup.
What products do you swear by for that no-makeup-makeup look? Let us know!
