How to look good without make-up - Natural beauty tips - harpersbazaar.com

If you've ever fruitlessly typed the question 'how to look good without make-up' into a search engine, you are not alone. Having skin that you makes you feel confident enough to glow barefaced can feel like a dream-like aspiration for many of us; with so many factors involved and a multitude of opinions on what makes 'perfect skin', the search can be fraught with confusion.

To help, we spoke to the experts to share their guidance, from skincare solutions to little tips and tricks for boosting the clarity and radiance of your complexion without resorting to thick make-up. Ultimately, though, all you really need to look your best without make-up is the self-assuredness not to wear it should you wish.

1. Put your best face forward

Firstly, there are some simple tips and tricks to help you look instantly more awake and alive – without reaching for the concealer.

For the eyes, a professional eyelash curler, such as Kevyn Aucoin's The Curler, is a must-have: helping to focus the eye upwards and creating added definition without the need to use mascara. If you are also struggling with sleep at the moment (us too), bloodshot eyes can be a problem – and with the cameras on laptops being known to pick up any red tones, anything that combats tired eyes is a life saver. If slices of cucumber aren’t doing enough, using eye drops can be a great alternative, as can under-eye patches, so try Patchology's Eye Gels.

Elsewhere, a facial mist - try Glossier's Soothing Mist - can instantly revive and refresh, adding hydration to the skin, while for brows, even brushing through with a clean spoolie can help the face look more alert. When it comes to lips, a touch of clear lip balm will help your lips feel soothed and nourished – with the added benefit of just a hint of shine.

2. Stick with a skincare routine

“I think 'good skin' is synonymous with healthy skin," says the aesthetics doctor and founder of MZ Skin, Dr Maryam Zamani. "This means that skin is clear, even-toned, radiant and glowing, without blemishes, pigmentation, redness/erythema, dryness or spots. To achieve that you need a consistent skincare regime that addresses specific skin concerns.”

“My philosophy is 'reveal, enhance and protect'. Reveal with good cleansing and biweekly exfoliation. Enhance the skin with actives like antioxidants (vitamins C, E, B) ceramides, peptides, retinoids and at home treatments like masks, and light peels. And then protect with actives and SPF. In order to see the best benefit, you need to maintain skin treatments and skincare for a minimum of a skin cycle, which is approximately six weeks, as consistently changing your products or layering on too many actives can actually negatively impact the condition of your skin.”

3. Fake a glow

A natural looking glow (without any sun damage) can help you look healthier and more radiant too without the need for foundation, which is why you might get a host of compliments after coming back well-rested from holiday.

There are many brilliant options out there, but if you’re looking for a healthy bronze with added skincare benefits, the Super Glow Hyaluronic Self-Tan Serum from Tan-Luxe offers a burst of hydration with a natural tint to the skin. Or, add a few drops of Isle of Paradise’s Self Tanning Drops to your favourite moisturiser for a tan that can help even and colour correct your skin (it's green Medium tint combats any redness and inflammation in the skin, while the Dark shade uses a violet pigment to fight against yellow and ashy tones).

And, of course, the best tip of all for looking your best without make-up in the long-term is undoubtedly SPF. La Roche-Posay's Anthelios Shaka Ultra Light Facial Sun Cream is lightweight, non-sticky and doesn't leave a white film across your face, while Ren's Clean Screen Mineral SPF30 protects your skin whilst combatting any excess shine.

4. Give yourself a massage

If you have ever walked away from a facial with a spring in your step because your skin looks great despite being make-up free, you have probably benefited not only from the results of a good cleanse but the plumping effects of professional massage.

“Muscles in your face work in the same way as your body and you know how great you feel when you go to the gym; your muscles are toned, strong, long and lean,” explains the founder of FaceGym, Inge Theron. “Facial muscle stimulation helps to keep the muscles firm and skin tight but it also stimulates the most important protein for keeping the face look young: collagen. It’s proven to help with skin cell renewal, detox and fine line and wrinkle reduction.”

Facialists are specifically trained in facial massage techniques so are experts you can trust in, but considering appointments aren't possible at the moment, you can try an abridged version of Suqqu's famous Gankin massage (used frequently on models backstage at fashion week), as described by he brand's specialist Shumana Begum, below:

For puffy faces:

“To relieve water retention for defined cheekbones, make a fist with both hands, and place on your jaw. Using the second joints of your fingers, press upwards until you are under the cheekbones. Bend your head downwards slightly, and making small movements, move fists up and down to massage the muscles and stimulate the skin. Slide fists sideways towards the ear and bring them down to the neck to drain. Repeat twice.”

5. Nutrition

The phrase ‘you are what you eat’ might be cliché but it does accurately define the link, for many individuals, between your diet and the appearance of your skin without make-up. With the wrong nutrition – overly sugary, salty or processed foods – your complexion can seem dull, dehydrated or puffy, so it follows that a fresher, balanced diet can improve your skin texture and vitality.

“Our skin health reflects our inner health,” explains the nutritionist and founder of Avicenna Wellbeing, Sana Khan. “Supporting your skin through a wholesome all-rounded diet ensures that you feed your skin with vital vitamins, minerals, essential fats and amino acids. Nutrient deficiencies can show up on the skin in forms of inflammation such as eczema and acne.”

“If you have a diet which is heavy in preservatives, processed foods, and one that is generally lacking nutrient dense foods such as fruit and vegetables, then this adds up to intrinsic factors which may speed up the ageing process quite rapidly through oxidative cellular damage. Finally, you need hydration. The skin contains about 60-64 per cent water, so cut down on caffeine as this is a dietetic and will leach out water from your system. Top up on plain water and fruit/herbal teas to ensure you are keeping your skin thoroughly hydrated.”

6. Looking polished

Another way to feel instantly better without make-up may sound counterintuitive, but it’s actually focusing more on your hair and clothes. When you’re having a good hair day, or wearing an outfit that makes you feel confident (jewellery included), it feels much easier to brave a bare face. “I remember reading that Kate Moss said, if she does one thing, she always washes her hair. So I definitely think that fresh hair can be a mood booster,” says the make-up artist and IT Cosmetics ambassador Rose Gallagher. “But ultimately I think clothing plays a huge part in how you feel, and choosing to wear bright colours (anything from a nail varnish to a floral dress) can instantly make you feel like you look good.”

7. 'No-make-up' make-up

If not wearing any make-up at all just isn’t your thing, there are some brilliant products that help you achieve that ‘no-make-up' look. Sometimes, all it takes is a slick of tinted lip balm, and a good brow gel.

Or, try using products that can double up – for example dabbing your tinted lip balm on your cheeks and at your eye crease can help tie your face together in a more natural way. Bobbi Brown's Pot Rogue for Lips and Cheeks is a great option for adding life to the face and it’s creamy consistency blurs into the skin, while Glossier's Cloud Paints offer a barely-there sheen that you can apply with your fingers in seconds, and in shades that work for all skin tones.

8. Confidence

Of course, all you really need to go make-up free is the confidence to put down your cosmetics:

“I believe that confidence has a huge impact on how you hold yourself, which in turn affects both how you see yourself and how others see you,” says Gallagher. “Funnily enough, there is a lady called Celia Holman Lee I have been glued to during lockdown on Twitter who is helping people to hold themselves more confidently, from their posture to their walk. I really think looking good is largely a state of mind, and that by making those changes to your own sense of self you won’t mind whether you have the make-up on or not. Although, above all, I think we should all take steps to feeling like the best versions of ourselves, whether that means wearing make-up or not."
