Beauty Tutorial: Barely There

October 31, 2017
The warmer weather calls for a barely there look, put together with cruelty-free, natural cosmetics that are good for you and the planet. Eco make-up artist Wanda Waller shows you how to recreate this naturally beautiful look with some of her favourite products.

How to Achieve a Natural, Barely There Look

1) Prep your skin with a light spritz of hydrating rose water mist and then follow with your day moisturiser, preferably one with broad spectrum SPF.
2) By applying all your products in thin layers you will not only prolong the wear of your makeup but also ensure that it won’t look “cakey” or mask like.
3) Apply a light layer of Qsilica Paw Paw Ointment before starting a makeup application; by the time you are ready to finish your look with your favourite lip colour, your lips will be plump and hydrated.

4) Make sure your moisturiser is fully absorbed into your skin before applying your primer, keep in mind that you probably need only one pump (or less!) for your whole face. If your foundation is “rolling off” or goes on patch, you probably have applied too much primer or your moisturiser is too heavy for daytime.

Here are my recommendations of products that will help you recreate this look:
