Le No Makeup Look Matte Makeup Tutorial



This week we are exploring "le no makeup look" with a new matte palette I recently purchased from Tarte. But, as always, you do not need to use the exact makeup I use in this video. You can most likely recreate this subtle look from the makeup you already have! All you need are some soft pink, mauve, plum or taupe matte eyeshadows and a soft pink matte blush. This is such a lovely look for when you want to look as natural as possible. No shimmer, no sparkle, just beautiful shades that blend seamlessly into your skin.

I also share a no makeup look trick of mine: to only apply mascara to the outer lashes. This gives the illusion of long lashes but looks marvelously natural at the same time. I wore this very makeup look in last week's video discussing the ten-item wardrobe. I hope you enjoy!

Hi Jennifer,
I love the matte look and how you balance it with glossy lips. Tres chic!
As a side note, can you tell me where are your daughters when you are applying your makeup in the AM or in fact, when you are filming this? How do you keep them entertained while you carve out time to get ready? My son absolutely cannot stay put for more than one minute: he is almost 3 not that he did that out of spite/being disobedient, but I think small children are just naturally inquisitive of adult life/world -- I cannot imagine that your daughters are not interested in mommy putting on makeup!

Thanks & always enjoyed your video tutorials!

Claire

Fresh and beautiful! It really is hard to tell whether or not you're wearing makeup, or if you just wake up looking gorgeous!

Ann G. R. said...

Yes, beautifully fresh! The perfect way to wear makeup - so that it enhances without being seen on the skin. ( Like good writing - it appears effortless without trying to hard - and you achieve both! )

Linda Kerr said...

What is the total cost of all the products you used?

Deana B said...

Really beautiful look! I'll be trying this for my bridal shower coming up. Thank you so much! :)

This is Chopin! So much emotions, I was brought by it to my own country's history, tournaments, sufferings for freedom and dignity which are so visible and touching in this music. The look is pretty I am all elsewhere at the moment though.
