While your favourite celebs might flaunt their perfectly glowing skin, one thing they don’t want you to know is that their oh-so-natural look is actually NOT so natural (and no, we’re not talking about plastic surgery). It's ironic how the no makeup or the natural makeup tread actually takes a lot of skill.
But now, you too can perfect this look! MyGlamm's Makeup Expert Resham has given us all the deets on how to effortlessly ace this look and we're going to tell you how! So, grab your makeup kit and your camera cause we’re spilling the tea.
All About That Prep
Prepping is the most important step to perfecting this look. As much as we would all just love to wake up and look flawless, for most of us that's not the case.
If you want to slay this look you need to start off with cleansing, exfoliating and moisturizing. These 3 are your stepping stones to perfecting this look!
Less is more
You will need to let your foundation sit this one out. Go directly for the primer to get a smooth base. Unlike your normal makeup routine, this look doesn’t take much time! So you know what that means- MORE TIME FOR SELFIES!
Go Light On The Coverage
A lightweight, hydrating concealer is your magic wand to get rid of any blemishes, discolouration or even dark circles. But remember to blend it well to even out your skin tone.
Fake the flush
While we all love it when our cheeks turn red, it can’t happen whenever we want! No worries, you can always fake it. A little bit of cream blush on the apples of your cheeks will give you that natural flush. It'll be just like when you're talking to your crush (but a little more subtle). You can also go ahead and add a bit to your temples and on the bridge of your nose as well.
You Can Lash Out
It's better to stay away from any eyeliner or eye shadow for this look. This next step is optional but, you can, however, curl your lashes and apply a bit of mascara or you could opt out and just rock those natural lashes.
That Highlight Bling

A highlighter or illuminator will add that natural glow to your face. This can be added to the areas where the sun does shine like on your cheekbones, brow bones, chin and Cupid’s bow.
Your lips play an important role in shaping your look, but you needn't remove your lipstick from your makeup bag for this trend. All you'll need is a simple lip gloss or lip stain that has a bit of colour in it.
.....And you're done! But all makeup aside, the age-old tales of drinking plenty of water and eating healthy will also do wonders for your skin.
Now that the secret’s out, go ahead, follow these steps and let the selfie marathon commence.
