Nothing says a Spring refresh like completely revamping your makeup routine to adapt to the warmer weather on the horizon.
If you’re looking to enhance your natural glow while also dipping into your makeup bag for some of your favourite makeup, the no-makeup makeup look could be the next best thing for you. Incorporate light finishing touches and natural hues for a fresh-faced, cheek-pinched look to make people think you woke up like this.
While the no-makeup look requires more precision and can be trickier than applying a face of full glam, you need not worry about splurging on the best ‘natural’ ‘lightweight’ products. Instead you can appear chipper and wide awake with the help of products under £50 that are just as good as their expensive counterparts and can leave you feeling luxurious without breaking the bank.
Garnier Ambre Solaire
Natural Bronzer Self-Tan Face Drops
The ultimate no makeup makeup hack is prep! And to kick start this, I’d recommend Garnier’s new tanning drops to enhance your skin and give it that holiday glow before the sun makes its debut in the UK.
