The Beauty & Ease Of The No Makeup Look | Clozette

The root of the no-makeup-makeup look is the desire of women everywhere to feel flawless and confident without piling on tonnes of makeup. It's all about embracing and enhancing our natural features in a quick and easy way--perfect for women who are busy and always on the go.

But one thing to note, though. It's not completely about ditching makeup altogether; but rather, it's all about giving our beauty regimen a little upgrade. Whether you're a young woman who is only starting to get into makeup, or someone who has used makeup for years but want a regimen upgrade that brings the focus back on that coveted fresh, natural look--then the no-makeup-makeup look is the look for you.

And what better way to get started on this little regimen upgrade than with the specially curated selection of products from Pond's. In partnership with Happy Skin Cosmetics, Pond's has created their signature #PondsNoMakeupLook with a new Happy Skin x Pond's lipstick, aptly named the 'No Makeup Look' lippie.

So if you want to get in on the #PondsNoMakeupLook trend, here are the 4 easy steps to re-create your very own no-makeup-makeup look with Pond's and Happy Skin.


Step 1: Cleanse

The #PondsNoMakeupLook starts with the Pond’s Pearl Cleansing Gel. Infused with the Pond’s Pearl Essence, it uses an oxygenated formula to effectively lighten and cleanse without drying the skin at all. 

The Pond's Pearl Cleansing Gel retails for PHP 155

Step 2: Moisturise

After cleansing, the next step is moisturising with the Pond’s Dewy Rose Gel, a refreshing emulsion with rose lumiere essence that goes deep within the skin to lighten dark spots and smoothen pores. It comes in a refreshing gel which is absorbed quickly into the skin leaving skin moisturised without the sticky feel.

The Pond's Dewy Rose Gel retails for PHP 149 for 10g and PHP 399 for 50g.

Step 3: Conceal

Even out the complexion and conceal imperfections with the Pond’s BB+ Cream, a 2-in-1 whitening skincare and makeup product that has GenActiv Formula to lighten spots from within while providing ample sun protection with SPF30 PA++. The ultimate multi-tasker, it covers dark spots while whitening the skin from within.

The Pond's Flawless White BB+ Cream with SPF 30 PAA++25g retails for PHP 349 and is available in light and beige. 

Step 4: Enhance

Happy Skin especially created the No Makeup Look Lippie to add a healthy pop of colour while moisturising and smoothening the lips to match glowing skin. The Pond’s X Happy Skin #NoMakeupLook lippie is a wearable pink lippie that flatters all skin tones, while moisturising and smoothening the lips.

Coming from the liquid lipstick addict herself is a lip swatch video of Colourpop liquid lipsticks. It's an American brand that's affordable but has a formula that is comparable to high end brands. Their liquid lipsticks are a bit drying, but the shades are amazing and they last for a long time on the lips. Almost all shades look good, so which one's your pick?

After searching from store to store, you finally got that lipstick tube with the best vampy shade you've ever seen. Your next problem is, what to wear it with? Your MOTD relies heavily on your lipstick and since your outfit and makeup should be cohesive, you've got to step it up a notch. 

Not all of us can live the life of a basic fashionista. To help you out, here are 4 looks you can match with your vampy red, violet, cherry, or brown lipstick! 


All-Out Glamour

Nothing can be as strong as an all-black look, the same goes with your vampy lipstick shade. Together, they form an outfit that is a sure fire hit for all the gals in your place. Make sure to carry this look well--a great outfit comes with great responsibility. 

Edgy Workwear

It's about time you ditch the MLBB (my lips but better) shade in the work place and wear something that would make you look like everybody's #girlboss. Pair your vampy lipstick shade (we suggest a reddish brown shade) and pair it with your edgy workwear pieces. An asymmetrical blazer, leather pants, gold jewelry, and a pair of studded boots would do the trick!

Laidback Chic

Yes, your vampy lipstick shade can also go the laidback route--but with an elegant touch. Grab your flowy pieces and pair it with a tote bag and heels for a chic OOTD. To finish it off, apply your vampy cherry shade and you're all set! 

Military With A Touch Of Boho

Whenever fall season comes, a few olive green pieces from the military trend visits ur favourite brands. Take advantage of that because dark green hues perfectly complement a vampy lipstick shade! Add pieces with a touch of boho vibe such as fringe and distressed hems for a unique look!
