CYNTHIA is 25 and has fallen in love with the world of makeup. She considers it both a hohbby and a welcome escape from her office job. She doesn’t have her own blog, but she follows many!
WHAT SHE LOVES ABOUT HER LOOK: The entire look takes less than 15 minutes and wears very well throughout the day!
WHAT SHE USED: On eyes, she used Urban Decay Zero 24/7 Liner (tightlined) and Lancome Definicils Mascara. On the face, she used MAC C2 Face & Body Foundation, Lancome Clair Photogenic Pressed Powder, and MAC Instant Chic Blush.
DANI is an aspiring performer who loves anything related to beauty, fashion, and the performing arts. You can find her blogging over at Call It Beauty.
WHAT SHE LOVES ABOUT HER LOOK: My favorite thing about this look is that it allows me to be more comfortable in my own skin. No fancy eye makeup to hide behind, no outrageous lip color; just me, but more polished.
WHAT SHE USED: For eyes, she used MAC Naked Lunch Eyeshadow (lid), MAC Shale Eyeshadow (crease), Sleek Makeup Black Eyeshadow (brows, definition), and L’Oreal Voluminous Waterproof Mascara.

HILANA is a single mom who loves makeup and music. She thinks she just might be the eternal teenager. She just started her blog, because she loves writing.
WHAT SHE LOVES ABOUT HER LOOK: I have been doing this “no make up look” since forever. What I love most about this look is that it looks really natural and not “made up.” Just enough to make me look healthy and as if I care about my appearance.
WHAT SHE USED: On eyes, she used Revlon Marble-ous Match Eyeliner and Lancome Onyx Hypnose Mascara. On the face, she used Maybelline Creamy Natural Dream Matte Mousse and Rimmel Bronzer. On lips, she used Elizabeth Arden Perfect Cassis Lipstick.

WHAT SHE LOVES ABOUT HER LOOK: Even though it only takes me ten minutes to do, I always get at least one compliment about how pretty I look today. Also, save for the NARS blush and Urban Decay shadows, everything else costs less than $10 apiece.
WHAT SHE USED: On eyes, she used Urban Decay Chopper Eyeshadow, Urban Decay Smog Eyeshadow, Tony Moly Brown Gel Liner, and Maybelline Cat Eyes Mascara. On the face, she used Ellana Mineral Foundation, L’Oreal True Match Concealer, and NARS Orgasm Blush. On lips, she used Revlon Ginger Rose Super Lustrous Lipstick.
ANITA is a 34 year old stay-at-home mum of three. She’s a self-confessed beauty addict who has enough makeup to last a lifetime (or two!).

She started her own beauty blog and tries to fit it in with her busy routine!
WHAT SHE LOVES ABOUT HER LOOK: My favorite bit of this look is the eyes and the cheeks. If I was going out I’d probably add a natural looking lipgloss too, but this is perfect for just lazing around at home.
WHAT SHE USED: For eyes, she used MAC Show Off Brow Set, 17 Black Infinite Lash, and Urban Decay Zero 24/7 Liner. For the face, she used Avon Magix Face Primer, Collection 2000 Illuminating Touch Concealer, MAC Medium Mineralize Skinfinish, and MAC Light Flush Mineralize Skinfinish.

MARGARITA lives in Tallinn, Estonia, and she loves to experiment with makeup and discover new products!
WHAT SHE LOVES ABOUT HER LOOK: What I love about the whole No Makeup look idea – makes you look fresh and polished effortlessly, can be easily turned into an evening look. What I love the most in this look – Armani Bronze Mania sheer bronzer #1 – amazingly makes skin just glow, applies very sheer in texture, but gives the most natural tan color (not too orange, not too pink, just right for neutral and fair-skinned girls).
WHAT SHE USED: For eyes, she used Chanel Les Folies Noires, Giorgio Armani Nude Contrastes Palette #1, and Chanel Mystic Eyes Quad. For the face, she used Jane Iredale Amazing Base Loose Mineral Powder (Warm Silk) and Giorgio Armani Bronze Mania Sheer Bronzer #1.

MARGOT is an 18 year old journalism student in England. She loves what she studies as much as makeup. She writes a blog on her classes and journalism!
