My Weekend No-Makeup Makeup Routine (Step-by-Step)

I know you’ve heard the term “No-Makeup Makeup” before – it’s all the rage right now in the beauty world. There’s a group of women (myself included) that are looking for ways to have the most natural makeup looks possible. I’ve recently found a routine that requires minimal makeup, that has become my go-to for chill weekends. Read below for my no-makeup makeup routine, step-by-step.

First, I start off with skin, since the key to good makeup, is good skincare. I apply my Kiehl’s Daily Reviving Concentrate to give my skin a boost and help make me look alive. It doesn’t hurt that this study also smells amazing! Then, I apply my moisturizer, SPF and Kiehl’s Creamy Eye Treatment with Avocado.

Next, I add a little NARS Radiant Creamy concealer under the eyes and on any blemishes to even out my skin tone.

Then, I set my concealer with Ben Nye Banana powder, since I have combo/oily skin. Feel free to skip this step if you have dry skin.

Next, I apply two coats of mascara. I’m currently using the Charlotte Tilbury Full Fat Lashes mascara. It gives great volume and length.

Then, I swipe a tinted brow gel through my brows to maintain the shape and give them some extra color.

Finally, I add a nude lip color to finish up the look. This makes me look like I tried but not too hard.

These five steps (not including the skincare) have helped me look presentable on several weekend outings. Do you have a no-makeup makeup routine that’s even more low maintenance than this one? Please share below!
