We all love looking beautiful. And as beautiful as we all already are, we can’t deny the fact that make-up takes that beauty to a whole new level. But what if you’re not a make-up kinda gal? You just don’t like too much of it on your face, you can’t apply it properly, or you simply don’t have all that time to spend in front of the mirror every morning?
Worry not. We’re compiled a list of five easy-to-use budget beauty products to get the perfect “no make-up” make-up look. You ready?
With these babies up your sleeve, you can’t go wrong. The great thing about nudes is that they work for everyone and every occasion. If you’re going for a natural look, nudes are your friend.
This must-have is actually a nifty mix of skincare and make-up that helps keep your skin moisturised and gives the effect of a light foundation. Not too much, not too little – just enough. Try LA Girl Pro BB Cream (R65) at Dis-Chem
A bold lip has a time and a place, but for some, deep reds and pinks aren’t a vibe. Enter the nude lip. Bonus: It’s close enough to a natural lip colour that it doesn’t look out of place at an 8am breakfast meeting. Available in a variety of shades so you can choose your perfect tone. Try Maybelline Lipstick Colour Sensational (R130) at Dis-Chem
Instead of layers of shadow and liner, what about applying… almost nothing? Rock a nude smoky eye by investing in a palette with at least three hues: a dark shade to define, a medium shade to blend and a light shade to highlight. Try Yardley Eyeshadow Quad Foxtail Lily (R120) at Dis-Chem
The perfect bronzer application will leave your skin looking bright and gorgeous, with a natural sun-kissed glow. Just make sure you apply it correctly – and don’t use too much! Try Palladio Baked Bronzer Atlantic Tan (R116) at Dis-Chem
The purpose of using a setting spray is to help prevent your make-up from smudging, creasing or fading quickly. Totes a must-have. Try Maybelline SuperStay 24HR Makeup Setting Spray (R150) at Dis-Chem
