Get Camera-Ready With No-Makeup Makeup

By Mikkel Hyldebrandt


Even though we snap selfies constantly, and photo ops pop up at every social gathering, there’s no need to be “camera-ready” at all times. But if you know the cameras will be flashing, and you will pop up in your own and other’s social media feed, there’s good reason to do little enhancements that will make you look nearly flawless. Here’s how.


Hydrated Skin

Your skin will always look better when it is nicely moisturized. If you choose a moisturizer with a little color pigment, you will even out imperfections and make it appear smoother.

A little Obscurity

A concealer is concentrated pigment for those places on your face where color differences and shadows appear stronger. Use it lightly under eyes, in the fold between cheek and lips and in the creases of your nose. Also dab it (lightly!) where you may need a little coverage.
