First things first: Wear whatever makeup you want.
The ‘no makeup’ trend was preceded by a wave of heavy contouring and dramatic, bold eye makeup and for many the trend of wearing ‘no makeup’ makeup was a reaction to what felt like forced loads of heavy products. The idea of letting the skin breathe after years of matte, full-coverage, cakey products was appealing and freeing. Unfortunately, with this adverse reaction came the idea of makeup shaming, discouraging the embrace of heavy makeup, lots of eyeshadow, glowing highlight and flawless contouring.
In reality, there is no such thing as ‘no makeup’ makeup. There is just makeup. Choose the style that makes you feel happy and beautiful. For many, they feel their best when the products are natural and light, giving the appearance of sheer to light coverage and without a ton of weight on the skin.
