How to ace an everyday makeup look without foundation

There are some women who can’t step out of the house without their elaborate makeup routine. Then there are others who can’t even wear a layer of foundation on a daily basis because it makes their skin look unnatural. But everybody wants flawless skin, right? So how do you get that without foundation?

We have the answer to that. Whether you are a makeup junkie who is still trying to find their perfect foundation match or a noob who still can’t figure out the texture, skin tone or undertone, we are going to help you ace an everyday makeup look minus foundation.




Skincare and makeup, both require a clean slate to work on. Therefore it is important to cleanse your face before applying any skincare or makeup product on it. If you haven’t exfoliated your face in a while, do that too, this will ensure your skin feels soft and the makeup glides on smoothly.




The next step is to prep your skin for the base makeup, this includes moisturising and applying primer and foundation. But what if we told you that you can skip these and opt for just one product instead? Yes, you read that right. The Pond's White Beauty Instabright Tone Up Milk Cream is a single step skincare and makeup product that instantly brightens the skin, makes it smooth and gives an oil-free look. That’s not all, it is an excellent product to ace the no-makeup makeup look as it gives a natural, dewy finish that lasts all day long.


Brow pencil


Believe it or not, but brow pencil is an everyday makeup essential; it will frame your face, make sparse brows look fuller and complete your overall makeup look. Choose a shade that’s closest to your natural brow colour. Opting for something too dark will make your eyebrows look unnatural.




We know you may not be too fond of makeup but mascara is hardly ever visible if applied right. It is important because it makes your eyes look wider, more awake and draws attention to your eyes. Make sure you use the right texture and apply not more than two coats.




Whether you are a lip balm person or love your nude shades, a lipstick is an everyday makeup essential. Depending on your mood and setting you can select between nudes, browns, pinks and reds.
