If you’ve been following the beauty industry, you’ll have noticed that the biggest trend in makeup these days is… not wearing makeup? It might seem strange, but it’s true. Women across the world are deciding that enhancing their natural looks with different procedures (and sometimes just a bit of makeup) is the way to go. And who can blame them? We spend hours upon hours every week doing our makeup, so it’s only fair that we get a breather. And if you want to join this trend, this is how you can do it.

Spot-treat

If you don’t want to give up makeup completely, but you don’t want to put so much work into it and you definitely don’t want it to look like you’re wearing a lot of makeup, what you should be doing is spot treating. This simply means that instead of applying makeup all over your face, you only apply it to the places where you feel like you need it. This means dabbing foundation only in places where you have some redness, concealing dark circles only when they are actually there, and filling out your brows just enough so that they are visible, but still natural. Spot treating is a great way to slowly start using less makeup and feeling more comfortable in your own skin.

Use other assets

When you’re not using makeup to express yourself as much, you need to use other things. This can be in the way you dress (and you’ll be surprised by how much more colorful and eccentric you can dress when you start wearing less makeup) or the way you accessorize, especially around your face. Hats, scarfs and jewelry will bring attention to your face by framing. Your hair can do the same, and if you need tips for maintaining it during summer, just ask Australian women – they know how to keep it perfect even in the constant sun.

Improve your skin

The biggest reason why a lot of women hesitate and don’t switch to wearing less makeup is that they aren’t satisfied with the state of their skin. And it’s perfectly fine if you want to get some procedures that will help you feel better about your skin. Another tip coming from Australian women is getting anti wrinkle injections in Darwin, which help you get rid of those pesky wrinkles and creases that add years to your face. Other procedures you can consider are micro needling, chemical peels and similar minimally- or non-invasive procedures that enhance the quality and the appearance of the skin. These procedures are more and more accessible, but you have to make sure you do your research and find a good, professional clinic to get it done at.

Make it pop

One huge benefit of the “no makeup” look is that the little makeup you do decide to apply will instantly pop. So while a rosy-nude lipstick might get lost when you have an entire face of makeup done, it will stand out and bring attention to your lips if it’s the only thing. Or if you want your eyes to pop, all you have to do is apply some mascara, and you’re good to go.

Take care of your skin

If you want to have nice skin, you need to take good care of it. This means using good quality products to exfoliate, moisturize and protect your skin. You should have seasonal products, because the light, water-based ones won’t be enough to protect you from harsh winter winds, and the heavy winter creams will just be too much during summer. You can use other natural tricks to enhance your look, like frozen paper towels dipped in green tea to reduce puffiness around the eyes or massaging the face to make you look more awake. And if you get a pimple – embrace it. It will pass sooner if you just leave it be than if you try to torture it and pop it every day. Embracing your flaws is what this trend is all about.

Wearing less makeup will free up your time in the morning, help you embrace your natural self, make you feel more free during the day and let you shine extra bright when you want to get all dolled up. It’s important to remember and embrace that we are all simply human and that we have flaws. Nobody is under any obligation to use makeup to cover themselves up, so you do you and be however you feel most comfortable in your own body.
