With air-dried, natural hair being one of 2016’s top trends in beauty, it’s obvious that a natural look to go with it is the perfect fit.

My friends always mention that it’s a tricky feat for them to get out the door looking like they’re not wearing makeup, but not looking like they just rolled out of bed. It’s a fine line between looking effortless yet completely perfect.

I’m obsessed with the “no makeup” makeup look. Here’s how you can get it, step by step!

Supplies:

Instructions:

Step 1: Start with a BB cream or a tinted moisturizer with SPF on exfoliated skin. Make sure skin has been exfoliated so that your healthy glow can be enhanced.

Step 2: Apply a light brown eye shadow to whole lid.

Step 3: Wiggle black or brown eyeliner into lash line. Make sure to get liner really into the lashes to make them look dark from the base. Smudge with finger if you want a really soft look.

Step 4: Apply two coats of black mascara to lashes.  

Step 5: Next, brush up brows to wake up eyes even more. You can also add a shimmery vanilla shadow to inner corners of eyes to help brighten.
