If you get simple beauty and naught else, you get about the best God invents. – Robert Browning

With No-makeup, makeup trend all over the place, mastering the art can be a favor to yourself.

Tired of being late to the office every day? Fed up of applying too many makeup products daily? But, still, want something on your face? No-makeup makeup can be your best friend.

Makeup plays a significant role in your professional life and so does going overboard. And, what if it steals the precious time of your mornings? Applying a lot of products every day also seems impractical.

No-Makeup Makeup Look For Busy Women

A no-makeup, makeup can be worn anywhere – from office to grocery shopping, when hosting a party at home, for a day time formal event or a casual outing with friends.

So, what is a no-makeup, makeup look?

Basically, a no-makeup look involves makeup using the bare minimum products, for an ‘au naturale’ look.

First, let’s determine how do you want your makeup to be?

Do you prefer enhanced eye-look, well-defined lips, or an even complexion? Choosing a style is a great way to make most out of your no-makeup look. We all love to intensify at least one part of our face. A no-makeup look should enable you to add a personal touch to your makeup.

I highly recommend having a separate bag for these products so you don’t have to sift through all the products when in a hurry.


Before starting with the makeup, ensure good skincare i.e., cleansing, toning & moisturizing, sun protection, and lip balm 10-15 minutes prior to applying makeup.

Look #2

1. Apply concealer on the under-eyes, eye-lids, and on the dark spots and blend it properly.

2. Set it with a compact powder using a puff.

3. Fill the eyebrows.

4. Apply a brown eyeliner pencil on the upper lashline really close to the lashes( you can wing it if you wish to). Now, you can either keep it that way or smudge the eyeliner for a smokey look. If you like heavily kohled eyes, then only tight-line the upper lashline and apply a thick layer of kohl on the bottom lashline (in this case, a black eyeliner looks wonderful).

5. Tight-line using the same pencil.

6. Apply generous coats of mascara.

7. Use a muted blush for balance.

8. Put some lipgloss or lip stain to finish the look.

Pro Tip: Look for a medium-high coverage pressed powder or one-step powder foundation to speed up the base makeup process.

Final Words:

If there’s an option for me to get up 15-20 minutes early to do the makeup or sleep for another 10 or 15 minutes & skip or eliminate a few steps from applying makeup, then I would choose the latter one for life.

Why? Because I think you’ll look & perform better when you’re well-slept. Your makeup should include the only steps which are necessary and don’t hesitate to get rid of all the others.
