The No Makeup Make Up Class
A Lesson On Fresh Face No MakeupLook
When starting with your makeup application it is always good to have a check on your Hygiene tools – Spatulas, Sponges, Spoolies, Cotton Squares and Cotton Buds – so you are set to go!
Skin Care is a Top Priority
Skin care is a biggie for me, I always, always, always cleanse my skin at night, and after cleansing, I love taking the time to apply my Bontanicals Jojoba Anti-Ageing Serum and Bee Venom Mask, and Botanicals Eye Gel Serum to make sure my skin looks it’s very best. Your skin needs to be always hydrated, plumped and ready to accept makeup. Think of your skin round the eyes as the most finest linen – which needs to be cared for gently when you cleanse and apply your makeup. My product of choice is Botanicals Eye Gel Serum – 100% natural and gentle you will just ♥love this beautiful Gel.
Your skin needs to be hydrated, and night time is a great time to replenish the skin from the exposure and pollutants of the day – and allow your Beauty Products do their work while you sleep. That is why we call it “Beauty Sleep!”
This Is My Night Routine: Botanicals Cleansing Milk, ($51.90) Cleansing Toner, ($47.75) Jojoba Anti- Ageing Serum, ($39.95) Bee Venom Face Cream, ($78.95) Botanicals Eye Gel Serum. ($54.75)
Tone, and apply your JoJoba Anit-Ageing Serum (allow to absorb while having your breakfast!) then your Moisturiser of choice – mine is Beauty Bee Bee Venom Face Cream. ($78.95) 100% Gentle, 100% N.Z. Honey and Bee Venom, 100% Hand Made in N.Z. in small batches to ensure freshness, Not Tested on Animals.
Apply your moisturiser and allow to absorb prior to applying your Colour by Dezine BB Cream – What is a BB Cream?? BB (Beauty Balm) is an all-in-one moisturiser, primer, foundation and sun block and can be worn alone as a tinted moisturiser , or primer under foundation, and also under Mineral Foundation depending on the amount of coverage required. Part Skin Care, part makeup, 100% amazing! This lovely BB Cream is super hydrating protection with a sheer radiant coverage, provides a superior skin protection with a natural “No Make up” look. SPF 20. You can apply with Foundation brush or Latex Free Sponge. Colour by Dezine BB Cream ($72.90)
Not just on any blemishes, but under the eyes, try a dab of concealer on your eyelids (with your Latex Free Sponge), between your eyebrows, on any broken capillaries, underneath your nose and in the corners of your mouth. This will conceal redness and brighten your face in no time! Our Concealers are awesome – they just stay where you put – just pat on. ($37.85) Available in 3 shades.
Go easy on the powder – the key to the no – makeup makeup is being fresh faced – so putting on lots of powder will take away from that – however, our Mineral Powder is ideal, as you build the coverage you need – for this look – apply in the areas only you feel you need a little more coverage, or to take down too much shine. You will also have the added benefit of a SPF factor of 15 – 20 depending on how much you apply. Apply with Kabuki brush. Silky application that adheres to the skin giving you a spectular coverage without a “Powdered” look creating a flawless finish. Available in 3 Cool and 3 Warm Shades ($72.90 – Refills $46.90)
Brows are so important – it is like the “Picture Frame” to your eyes.. Applying our Brow Defining Powder with our Mini brush will give you a super effect – filling in any gaps, just apply in short feathery strokes to achieve a natural effect. (38.50) 5 Colours to choose from.
If you have eyebrows to tame – then the best choice is Brow Wax Splits – this compact gives you 1/2 wax and 1/2 brow defining powder. You just apply a little of the wax to the brows first to tame and then apply the powder – and WOW! All sorted. ($35.90)
We have a great choice for you when it comes to Blusher, shades are sorted into the Seasons, Summer, Winter, Spring and Autumn to make your selection easy. It comes in a handy Flip top compact. ($33.35). Or, the Blush Bouquets (Pictured Pink Carnation) in a larger compact which gives you a stunning swirl of colours, depending on your Season, Summer, Winter, Spring and Autumn ($58.00). The best tip for our No Makeup Makeup look is easy does it! – blend, blend, blend out the edges with your Mineral Powder.
For this look we need a Naked Palette – to use for your base all over the eyelid to create a Neutral eye all over the eyelid, using a shimmery nude colour on the lid we suggest for Summer: Pink Ice, Winter: Crush on You, Spring: Vanilla Ice, Autumn: Sugar Cane. Eye Shadows available in Flip Top Compact ($32.55) or handy refills that you can pop into our Refillable Magnetic Compacts that come in Mini ($29.90) and Large ($35.90) Refills ($17.50) – You choose your colours from a very wide selection that you will ♥

Then we use a Brown Eyeliner (never black for this look). You have the choice of Liquid (with a very thin brush, so easy to use) For this look Cools: Brown. Warms: Autumn ($32.50). Or Eye Pencil Coco ($27.50). The Key Rule for makeup is that YOU MUST WEAR MASCARA if you wear eyeliner. Mascara ($36.90)
Though no-makeup makeup may not seem like the place for lipstick or gloss – but it is essential to finish this lovely look. Define your lipline- by adding a Neutral lipliner is a good start –
I recommend Cool: Pink Lady, Warm: Flesh ($27.50)
Then a light lipstick Cool: Pink Princess, Snob Appeal, Luna Rose, Gotcha – or for a completely nude look Intense Beige.
Warm: Simmering Peach, Dream Catcher, Intense Apricot, Oyster, Our lipsticks are super moisturising, super shiny and Paraben Free ($36.50). Lip Gloss Cool: Lilic Mist, Warm Peachy – Also we have Clear if you decide on just a sheer gloss ($28.50)
