Good morning, readers!
Today being a lazy Sunday morning for me, I ran some errands without a stitch of makeup on my face. I love going makeup-free when I can, as it gives me skin time to breathe, not to mention saves me a ton of time. When getting ready this morning, I thought it may be helpful to share three things I am sure to do when going make-up free to look a bit more put together.
1. Wear moisturizer. Many of us apply moisturizer first thing in the morning anyways, but just a reminder to ensure you’re hydrating your skin for the day ahead. A lightweight moisturizer can make the perfect day cream as it works well on its own as well as under makeup (for your dolled up days!) I also love applying a fresh layer of moisturizer before going makeup-free in public as I find it brightens my skin and makes it look more plump and dewy.
2. Apply a lip balm. I am never without lip balm, especially in the cooler months and I love how, like a facial moisturizer, it both has skincare benefits (moisturizes your lips, prevents chapping, contains SPF in many cases) as well as boosts your look. Moisturized lips just look more dewy, dimensional, and fresh. A tinted lip balm can be a nice twist if you’re looking for a hint of colour (BONUS: it can work as a cream blush too! …but now we’re getting back into makeup territory :))
3. Comb through your brows. Unruly brows are never a good look on anyone, but can be forgotten about if you’re just rolling out of bed before heading out. Do a quick brush through with a spooley, and you’re set!
Do you also love going makeup-free? What are your go-to moisturizers?
