Ladies usually think that no one in this world should ever see them without makeup. And why the hell not? It’s not like you’re going to scare anyone with your normal face. However, if you want to look your best with no make up on, there are a couple of things to pay attention to. Here they are.

Your Eyes

Although you can cover a couple of flaws about your eyes with makeup, there are some things that you need to take care of. And if you’re quitting on makeup, you need to think about that even more.

1. Get Rid of The Bags

The thing that makes you look tired and older, is the bags below your eyes. To get rid of them, make sure you have enough sleep. You don’t need to sleep for solid eight hours, but try to sleep for at least six. And relax when going to bed, so that you have a great and lasting sleep. Waking up several times during the night it's a bad sign that you should finish.

2. Treat Yourself With a Cooling Eye Mask

Cooling eye masks can be of a great help if you get bags easily. Wake up 10 minutes earlier, get your mask from the refrigerator and keep it on your eyes for those ten minutes. It will not only help you get rid of the baggies, it will also help you wake up easier.

3. Use Special Under Eye Moisturizers

The skin around your eyes is very thin and it requires special care. Sometimes your face moisturizer will just not be enough, so make sure that you have a special under eye moisturizer. They are also made with cooling effect, which lowers the chance of getting the bags under your eyes.

Your Lips

You need to take special care of your lips if you’re giving up the lipstick. Remember that lipsticks cover all the little flaws on your lips which will now be visible. To get rid of them, do the following:

4. Stop Licking and Biting Your Lips

I know a lot of girls that lick and bite their lips when they are nervous. You might not realize this, but licking and biting brings a lot of damage to your lips. Licking makes them really dry, which causes them to rupture, while biting can really hurt you and in some rare cases even lead to serious problems, like infections.

5. Always Use Lip Balm

Lip balm is not makeup, it’s a health product, if you ask me. If you want beautiful lips, make sure you have your lip balm with you, especially during the winter, when your lips get dry because of the cold. Rather use organic balms, because most others contain petroleum jelly. Petroleum jelly actually does protect your lips but it does so by creating a thin protective film over them. This film does not allow your lips to breathe, which results in dryness. Choose lip balms with bee wax instead.

Your Skin

Your skin is what you need to take care of the most if you want to look good without make up. There are several things you need to pay attention to.

6. Keep Your Skin Moisturized

If your skin is dry you won't look good even with the makeup. Always keep your skin moisturized. Drink a lot of water and use moisturizers, one for the day and one for the night. Don’t wash your face too often and don’t use strong cleansers. You can even wash your face with warm water only in the morning and use a cleanser in the evening.

7. Watch the Acne

A lot of women wear makeup because of acne and imperfection on their skin. When it comes to acne, do not, and I mean do not ever try to squeeze them. Buy special gels that make them dry out and disappear faster. For every other imperfections visit your dermatologist and follow his advice.

8. Get Away from the Sun

The biggest enemy of healthy skin is the sun. It makes your skin age faster and can cause some serious damage. Don’t ever get out without special sunscreen for your face and forget about tanning booths completely. They only give you an unnatural orange color and risk of skin cancer anyway.

You absolutely can look good without makeup. You only need to follow these steps and believe that you actually do look good. Put on a smile, tell yourself that you are a beautiful woman and face the world without your makeup on. You will be surprised how liberating that experience could be.
