above FLAVEDO AND ALBEDO
For those of us for whom makeup has always been a bit too much, the recent ‘no makeup’ trend – sometimes referred to as ‘clean girl’, ‘glazed doughnut’ or ‘latte’ makeup – is a welcome change. Obviously, it’s still makeup, but the popularity of the trend means there are a plethora of tutorials, techniques and products out there for makeup looks that are often quick, easy and very light – the ultimate ‘just me and my skin’ feeling. If you want to begin your own no-makeup makeup journey, here are 11 of our favourite simple – sometimes even double-duty – natural beauty products for your face, lips, cheeks and eyes.
