I for one, hate wearing makeup. No matter how light it is. I always feel like I am not looking like myself. There is of course absolutely nothing wrong with wearing makeup. And if you do have a makeup routine that works for you, then you go girl!
I am often rushing out the door in the mornings and barely have any time for makeup. And that’s where these tips come in handy. These simple tips will make you look like you have put in efforts in the way you look, without any makeup.
15 tips to look good even without makeup:
#1: Take care of skin/ Skin care routine:
this is perhaps the most important tip of all. Having a healthy, clear and glowing skin that glows from within makes all the difference. and when you have great skin, all you need is minimal skin acre in the mornings to make you look good, without any make up.
Of course having healthy and clear skin takes a lot of work, but there are a few things you must keep in mind:
- Drink plenty of water and keep your skin hydrated
- Start a simple skincare routine that works for you
- Never sleep with your make up on
#2: Sleep on satin pillow:
Sleeping on a satin pillow that’s gentle for your skin and hair is such a great tip and so easy to do. All you need is to replace your cotton or linen pillow case/cover with a satin one. You can find one online on amazon. And just make sure that you are changing your pillow cases every week.
#3: Massage your face:
massaging your face after exfoliating and washing increases the blood flow in your face making it look more fresh, plump and gives it a nice healthy pink glow. And when you are not wearing any makeup all these little bits go a long way and make you look more presentable.
#4: Do your hair:
You don’t have the time to do your makeup, but you can do your hair. There are so many videos on youtube that show you quick and easy 5 minute hairstyles for every hair type. So make sure you are taking the time to do your hair to make you look good.
#5: Elevate your style:
Elevate your personal style and go from looking shabby and tacky to looking chic. If you are dressed to impress, no one is going to be looking at your makeup. So keep it chic when it comes to your clothes. take time to plan your outfits instead of simply throwing something on randomly. And please, whatever you do, do not do out in your PJs. they are not meant to leave your house, unless you are a Kardarshian.

#6: Don’t forget sunscreen: The key to always looking good even without make up is to not forget to apply sunscreen whenever stepping out of your house. Find one that isn’t super sticky and that doesn’t make you look 5 tones lighter than your natural skin tone or vice versa. Find one that matches you skin tone perfectly or get a clear gel based one. Just make sure to never leave the house without sunscreen.
#7: Add sunglasses:
Sunglasses can instantly make you look good. especially when you have ones that go perfectly with your face. And they also eliminate the need to put on any eye make up. And squinting in the sun never made anyone look good. So if you are going to be outside, add sunglasses. I always keep mine in my hand bag so that I don’t forget them.
#8: apply lip gloss:
Do not underestimate the power of a lip gloss. Yes, it’s not makeup. And just adding a bit of lip gloss can you make you look like you have put efforts in. Again, like your skin, it’s important to take care of your lips too. So make sure you are exfoliating them every now and then and also using hydrating lip masks every 2 weeks. Nude or sheer lipgloss is the way to go as they they look good with the no makeup look and go with everything.
#9: Wear a smile:
You know how they say that a smile is the best accessory you can wear? Well, they are not wrong. Smiling often can make you look good and when you smile you automatically look more warm and attractive to people. And people appreciate when someone smiles because it’s something that people seem to have forgotten these days. So wear a smile to look good! Doesn’t cost you anything.
#10: Eat healthy balanced meals:
Eat healthy and nutritious meals to make care of your body and skin. they go a long way and make you feel more energetic throughout the day. And when you are not looking like a lazy potato all day, you are feeling productive, you look good too.
#11: Get enough rest/sleep:
Make sure you are getting enough sleep to avoid those dark circles and under eye bags. And not just sleep, getting rest throughout the day is important too. If you are constantly working on your laptop all day, take regular breaks. And during these breaks make sure to stretch and relax your eyes too. When you have had good sleep it shows on your face and makes you look good.

#12: Workout for healthy skin:
As important as getting rest and the right nutrition is working out regularly. When you workout on a daily basis, you feel better. And when you feel good, you look good. Working out regularly also makes sure you are keeping fit and in shape, which makes all clothes look better on you. It also increases endorphins and lifts up your mood, hence making you look prettier.
#13: Up your exfoliation game:
Another tip that is very under-rated is exfoliating. And not just your face, your entire body. So up your exfoliation game. it helps your skin look healthy and good. Exfoliating regularly also ensures that you have even skin tone throughout and that makes you look good no matter what you decide to wear.
#14: Maintain good posture:
Another tip that has got nothing to do with dressing up or makeup but makes you look good is your posture. having a good posture makes you look confident and of course makes you look good. If you keep sitting on your work desk all day, take breaks every hour to relax and stretch your body. This will help to relax sore muscles and relive tension in your shoulders and neck and hence give you a better posture. You could also consider getting a standing desk or a convertible so you could work while standing for a few hours. It’s great for your back and for your posture.
#15: Do things that make you happy:
And lastly, do things that make you happy and do them every day. There is nothing more attractive than a happy person and when you are choosing things that make you happy everyday, you are choosing to be happy. And you deserve that. DO not let the work pressure keep you from taking out time for yourself. Because you will actually do better in almost every aspect of your life, if you are happy from within.
