Although foundation is often seen as a vital step in any everyday face beat, it’s very possible to still be flawless with or without it. In fact, here are some beauty tips to help you slay a foundation free look.
Be Good to Your Skin
Skin blemishes can make it uncomfortable to go foundation-free. Your skin is your largest bodily organ. Avoid neglecting it by drinking lots of water and maintaining a well-balanced diet full of green leafy veggies. You may find that cutting back on fatty foods, dairy, and excessive protein also helps create smooth skin that is naturally flawless. In addition to eating clean, it is important to develop a skincare routine. Follow it twice a day for noticeable results you can see in a week or two. You’ll want to customize your routine to your own skincare needs. It never hurts to get advice from your favorite aesthetician or dermatologist.
Groomed Eyelashes and Eyebrows
Whether you realize it or not, our eyelashes and eyebrows play a major part in how we view the appearance of our face. Skip the foundation, but take time to groom your eyelashes and eyebrows. This can include waxing brows and lightly filling them in to your preference. For eyelashes, feel free to go crazy with mascara or put a good pair of false wispies to use. You’ll find that these two things alone make a major difference.
Indulge in Highlighter
Just because you don’t use foundation for the day, doesn’t mean that you have to rob yourself of highlighter. Using a small amount of highlighter, or highlighting moisturizer, will give your skin a natural glow that looks amazing. Apply your go-to highlighter to cheekbones, the center of your nose, and any place in between where you’d like to bring more light into your face. If you’re really feeling ambitious, you can even add a tad of highlighter to your shoulders and collarbones. One word sums it up: Poppin.’
Use a Fly Lippie
On days when I’m running errands, it’s quick and simple to throw on a lip balm for a effortless “I didn’t try look.” When I want to take it a step further, I reach in my bag for a standout pink or a true red. A good nude is also a great option that translates well, from an office setting to a night out. Pick your choice, just don’t forget about your lips.
