The more layers of makeup you cake up, the better, said no makeup artist ever! The makeup, no makeup look is the ultimate go-to now and it has officially become a classic.

It is more about complementing your features without altering how you look. It may not be super easy but with these 10 steps, you can ace it.

How to:

Step 1

Start with a good lightweight and hydrating moisturiser after washing your face with a gentle cleanser.

Step 2

Apply a primer to create a smooth canvas for your foundation. It helps reduce the appearance of wrinkles and pores while also acting as a protective barrier preventing your skin from sucking up water in the foundation.

Step 3

Apply a light to a medium coverage foundation.

Step 4

Depending on how much you want to cover up, go easy on concealer and only apply in your problem areas.

Step 5

You can skip the bronzer altogether and wear blush instead. However, you can apply a small amount of the bronzer on your cheekbones, forehead and jawline and blend.

Step 6

Make your cheeks pop by applying a pinkish highlighter, which will match your blush or bronzer.

Step 7

When it comes to your eyebrows, dip a spoolie brush in some glycerin or use any other clear oil to comb out the hairs.

Step 8

Lightly apply the bronzer using the eyeshadow brush on your crease and the outer part of your eyes. Then using the tip of your finger apply the cream highlighter to the inner and middle lid. You can stop at that or apply a light coat of light pink mascara.

Step 9

Lock the wet products in place by applying a small amount of setting powder.

Step 10

Finish off with setting spray to prevent your makeup from smudging or cracking too soon.
