Temptalia Readers Share Their “No Makeup” Makeup Looks!
And part three… one more to go!
Check out breakdowns for each reader’s look!
ANYA is 21 years old and lives in Russia. She prefers to spend her time (and money!) on her makeup obsession rather than her “serious” thesis about modern art and literature (which she is getting her degree in!). Though they don’t have MAC in Russia, when she travels to Europe, she buys all the MAC she can!
WHAT SHE LOVES ABOUT HER LOOK: The whole look was about creating a warm and fresh glow. It only took 5 minutes, and I really loved the result.
WHAT SHE USED: On eyes, she used Diorshow Iconic Mascara. On the face, she used Chanel #10 Vitalumiere Eclat Compact Makeup, Guerlain #01 Precious Light Rejuvenating Illuminator, Guerlain Teinte Rosee Meteorites Perles, and Armani #2 Powder Blush. On lips, she used Dolce & Gabbana Baby Darling Shine Lipstick and Guerlain Cupidon Lip Pencil.
KC is 25 years old and from Barbados. She absolutely loves the art of makeup. To KC, her face is a canvas to manipulate anyway she wants. She says, “Sometimes you don’t always get it right but trying is part of the fun!”
WHAT SHE LOVES ABOUT HER LOOK: This is more of a day look for me than a natural look, but it isn’t too far off!
WHAT SHE USED: On eyes, she used MAC Flip Eyeshadow (inner), MAC Aztec Brick Eyeshadow (lid), NYX Brown Eyeshadow (crease), MAC Graphblack Technakohl, and L’Oreal Voluminous Mascara. She skipped foundation and kept lips simple with MAC Band of Roses Mineralize Blush dusted on with clear lipgloss.
VANIA is all about accentuating her full lips! She believes brows make the face and feels her brows look naked without a lil’ bit of help!
WHAT SHE LOVES ABOUT HER LOOK: What I love about my look is that its natural but yet I’m wearing makeup. It only takes me 5-10 minuites to do my makeup. This is pretty much my everyday look, I switch up the lip products of different lip liners and nude/ pink lipsticks. I’m a sucker for pink lipstick!
WHAT SHE USED: On eyes, she used MAC Fluidline on the upper lash line and MAC Smolder on the waterline. She skipped foundation, but she did brows with MAC Taupe Impeccable Brow Pencil and MAC Show Off Brow Set. She used NYX #810 Natural Lipliner and MAC Fleshpot lipstick on her lips.
ILANA is 32 years old and lives in Sao Paulo, Brazil. She just finished up her PhD in Genetics (WOW!). In 2007, she went to a professional makeup artistry school, but she currently only freelances.
WHAT SHE LOVES ABOUT HER LOOK: What I love about the look is that people think that you just woke up like that!! That your skin is always perfect!! Specially those girls that don’t care about makeup or anything related to facial care and say, “Your skin is sooo beautiful, I wish mine was like this.” Then I have to hold myself to not tell them: My skin is like this because I wash my face, hydrate, use sun block and remove my makeup everyday with appropriate products. I don’t wash my face with my body wash in the shower! You should try this!
WHAT SHE USED: On eyes, she used Sephora #09 Flashy Pink Liner, Urban Decay Underground 24/7 Liner, and CoverGirl Brown LashBlast Mascara. On her face, she used MAC NC25 Studio Fix Foundation, MAC NW25 Studio Finish Concealer, and MAC Melba Blush. On lips, she used MAC Viva Glam V Lipstick.
