Skin & Make-up

Makeup Free Beauty Tips

While makeup is a great way to enhance one’s beauty, being an esthetician, I know skincare and our internal routine makes us even more beautiful. If you’re ready to take a break from makeup here are some simple tricks and tips for looking just as beautiful and feeling just as confident without makeup.

1. Drink it up

Drinking tons of water, paired with green juices full of fruit and vegetables has an amazing effect on skin. Whenever I am juicing, I notice my skin has a bright glow to it, almost like a natural highlight. Be sure to add more natural juices and water to your diet for a glow that comes from the inside out.

2. Exfoliate

Another great way to get amazing skin results is by exfoliating your skin. Exfoliating gets rid of all of the nasty, dead skin on the skin’s surface and makes way for beautiful, clear healthy skin to shine through. Be sure to exfoliate at least once a week to reveal vibrant skin.


3. Moisturize

Adding a moisturizer that fits your skin type to clean skin adds a nice illumination to your face. You can add a little extra to your cheek-bones for a natural highlight in the same place you would put a highlighter.

4. Tame your brows

Defined brows can make all the difference with or without makeup. Brows frame your face and tamed brows look so appealing. It doesn’t matter if you like the thin or full brow look, brush your brows before you head out to compliment your look.

5. Moisturize your lips

Let’s face it, no one likes a chapped, flaky lip. Exfoliate your lips then apply a tinted or non tinted chapstick for a natural well-nourished lip look.

Remember true beauty starts within. It’s great to give yourself makeup free days or weeks to get the best skin results as possible. Eat as much fruits and vegetables as you can and drink plenty of water for clear, flawless skin.
