Last week at the Cannes Film Festival, Diane Kruger was snapped at a photo call for her next movie Lily Sometimes, looking absolutely gorgeous, with hardly any makeup on. This got us thinking. How can we look our best without wearing any makeup? We enlisted the help of celeb makeup artist Melissa Walsh, who offered some pointers on how to get the natural look, sans makeup!
Here is what she told us:
Having your eyelashes and eyebrows dyed and getting your brows shaped make a huge difference to your face, they both really help to define your eyes and last for weeks.
I like to use eyelash curlers before doing makeup but they also work well on their own to open up the eyes. I like the heated curlers by Talika.
If you need them eye drops are also great to clear the eyes and make you look bright and fresh – Rohto make some great ones.
If you suffer with dark circles and puffiness use a specific treatment for this. I love Instant Eye Tuck and Dark Circle Treatment by Easy Eye Solutions used in conjunction with their Illuminating Eye Cream you will see an instant difference and it’s still not makeup!
Some Vaseline on your brows, lashes and cheekbones creates an instant healthy sheen and also makes your lashes look darker.
In the morning you are going out sans makeup, smooth your skin with a gentle scrub to rid yourself of dull dry skin and even out your tone.
If I’m feeling a bit zombie like I slather on a serum that gets the circulation going and makes you look healthy by putting some color in your cheeks.
The best I’ve found is Morning Recovery Concentrate by Orlane.
To make your lips look plump and give them a flush of color use Beautiful Lips by Janson Beckett. It’s a lip moisturizer that plumps but isn’t sticky or greasy.
