Makeup can do wonders for a tired and sleepy face, it can make you look fresh and prepared for another Monday in your life. However, not all of us can wake up 30 minutes earlier just to put on a full face of makeup simply because sleep is life. So, here are some makeup must-haves to perfect the no makeup makeup look.

For Smooth and Glowing Canvas: BB Cushion or Tinted Moisturizer

With a prepped and primed face, dab a pea-sized amount of tinted moisturizer or BB cream to even out your complexion. The fun part is, you don’t have to add another layer because in a no makeup makeup look it is okay to let your skin breathe a little for a natural look.

In addition, to get that plump and bouncy look that Koreans are often sporting, try a BB Cushion! I highly recommend the Beam Fix Matt Cushion because it brings out your natural rosy pink glow. It does not have any coverage but it is jam-packed with goodies like wrinkle care and SPF50 PA+++ Sun block. Simply perfect for an Everyday “I woke up like this” look.

Wake me up, Brightening Concealer!

Nothing makes stress reach for the stars with a brightening concealer to conceal the aftermath of those sleepless nights and hardworking days. Just a quick “triangle” of concealer on your under eyes will do the trick. Although, this is not always necessary but if you need a little pick me up add a bit of brightening concealer to your routine.

Blush and Bronzer Duo, To the Rescue!

Bring back the color to your face by sweeping a touch of peach or pink to the cheeks. It definitely adds a sweet flush of color without being over-the-top, you may also opt for blushes with a little shimmer for that “I slept for more than 8 hours” glow. If you have an extra few minutes, some bronzer can draw some dimension on your face too.

Eyebrow Power!

Let’s face it, the face is just not without eyebrows! But this part of the routine can be a little intimidating and one can easily go wrong along the way. The key is to find the correct color to match your hair and with slight pressure and small strokes, fill in the sparse areas to achieve a natural look. You may also top it off with an eyebrow gel to keep the hair and products in place throughout the day.

Lip Tint Action

This might seem a lot but putting on makeup and feeling great after is what matters at the end of the day. If you’re happy with or without makeup is all you have to be concerned with. So, on top of it all put the lipstick of your choice on and be the boss lady that you are. I highly recommend the Matt Lip Anna from Chica Y Chico because of the smooth yet pigmented finish.
