Every woman wants to look pretty and be admired. Makeup helps you achieve that but the truth is that not everyone wants to wear makeup all the time. All those heavy foundations, powder, concealers, lipsticks and blushers can be a bit too much for someone who prefers to be simple not to mention the fact that sometimes you just want to let your skin breathe. Besides you may be too busy, your job too demanding or the hustle and bustle of running a home too much to let you apply make up everyday. So how can you live without makeup? Here are a few tips.
- Accept that you’re beautiful even without makeup
I watched T.D Jakes’ show where he set two doors at the entrance to the venue. One door said beautiful while the other said, plain. You would think that every lady went through the “beautiful” door but no some ladies, even those you would call pretty went through the other door looking flustered as they did so. The point is beauty is really first about self perception. How do you perceive yourself? If you accept that you’re beautiful even without makeup then that will make your no makeup journey easier.
- Let your skin glow!
If you have beautiful skin you will be amazed at how little make up you need to wear to look beautiful. Your glowing skin may be all the makeup you need to be attractive. I’ve heard men talk about how beautiful skin was their major attraction to their wives. Besides many skin problems are actually related to the excessive use of makeup. So how do you get beautiful skin? Bathe at least twice a day and moisturize your skin with quality products. Take lots of fruits and vegetables and don’t forget to drink plenty water every day.
- Get beautiful natural eyebrows
If you want to minimise your daily makeup routine, then you need to emphasise your natural features. Let’s start with your beautiful eyebrows. You can tweeze them or shape them to be the way you want that way you will look beautiful without needing to constantly use eye pencils.
- Touch up your lips.
It’s true you want to go without makeup but your lips will need to be moisturized to keep them from getting dry, chafed or peeling. You will need to apply something like Shea butter, lip balm or gloss or natural oils to keep them looking soft and supple.
- Healthy eating and water
Good food is important not only for the beautiful skin, but also for the overall health of your body. We are what we eat, therefore maintain a healthy and balanced diet. Make sure you eat fresh fruits and vegetables every day, as well as healthy fats and proteins; these are so important for your beauty. Also drink water to keep your skin hydrated and regulate your system.
- Beautiful hair
To look beautiful without makeup your hair should always be neatly and properly done. Wash regularly using quality shampoos and hair products suitable for your hair type. Always make sure your hair is plaited, fixed or neatly arranged and your natural look will be on point. Nothing can be more beautiful than silky and shiny locks!
