Skin is in and the ‘no makeup’ makeup look is the best trick in the book.
We love nothing more than looking fresh faced and radiant, but nailing that barely-there technique can be harder than it sounds. Thankfully makeup master Napoleon Perdis is here to help us out.
What nude makeup products should we all keep in our makeup bags?
What’s the most important thing to remember when achieving the perfect ‘no-makeup’ makeup?
To ensure your base looks immaculate. Spend the most time applying your foundation, concealing any areas of concern and setting your base with a touch of powder.
What’s the key to flawless skin?
Flawless skin comes down to a strict skincare routine – cleansing both day and night, for example. This will allow for a clean and smooth complexion and ensures makeup and impurities are removed thoroughly, to avoiding clogging your pores.
What’s the secret to a minimal base that lasts the whole day?
Primer! No makeup look is complete without it. No matter what your skin type is, from dry and dehydrated to oily, a primer will act as a barrier between your skin and your makeup. It’ll ensure the makeup stays put, without the need to constantly touch up.
Can people with oily skin use serums?
Definitely! Serums are concentrated with anti-ageing ingredients, which helps keep skin looking youthful and prevents further damage (from factors like the sun and pollution).
