Makeup has existed since time immemorial. Most of our ancient scriptures have mentioned the art of adorning the body as a traditional ritualistic practice. Indian natural makeup practices like the use of lamp soot as kohl/ Kajal are known to all and were seen as an essential part of Shringar’. The new makeup industry appears to be undergoing a revolutionary shift. There is a backward movement towards the use of natural beauty products and minimalist makeup selections that create a naturally dewy and flawless look. Terms like Natural makeup, organic cosmetics, no makeup, and natural makeup look are the new buzzwords that have been taking the beauty industry by a storm. Let’s take a look at what comprises the no makeup look and what kind of organic skincare products can be utilized to create this look.
What is a No Makeup look?
From main stream celebrities, to fashion influencers and bloggers and ever our friends, everyone appears to be trying this trend to some degree and extent. Several hundred tutorial videos exist on the internet, promising you the ultimate natural makeup look. Let's take a look at what truly comprises a no makeup or natural makeup look.
Even the most subtle of natural looks appear to have been created with a great deal of precision, finesse and a lot of cosmetic products. The idea of these looks is to make one appear flawless or at least match up to the idea of what is considered flawless. The most common no makeup look follows these general steps:
A base for the makeup is created using primer to ensure that makeup sits well on the skin. Primer helps the makeup last long and makes the skin texture seem flawless.
Concealer is then applied to the under-eye region, outer eye, chin area and the T-zone to make the skin appear even toned.
Once the concealer has been blended into the skin, highlighter is applied on the skin to give it brilliance and glow.
In order to impart the face with an almost natural looking flush, blush is applied to the apples of one's cheeks.
5. Lip tint
Finally, natural looking lip tints are applied onto the lips to make your pucker appear plump and gorgeous. One can replace the blush entirely and just stick to a subtle lip and cheek tint that keeps the skin underneath hydrated while imparting an ever so slight, natural looking and long-lasting flush to the cheeks and lips.
Alternatively, one could look to bring about an overall holistic change in one's regime to promote healthier functioning of the body resulting in naturally glowing and healthy hair and skin and use very little or subtle makeup to enhance the existing features. This is the kind of ritualistic bodily care has also been talked about in our ancient Vedic scriptures. Today most brands are trying to draw a page from the ancient text and introduce their own rage of natural beauty products. These products are generally vegan, cruelty free and created from the finest and the highest quality 100% organic ingredients in order to ensure that they are gentle on the skin and do not clog or damage it in the long run. Natural moisturizing lip and cheap tints enriched with the goodness of fruit extracts and herbal kajal are just a few of the several hundreds of such products present in the market. Ayurveda doesn’t emphasize as much on external beautifying agents as it does on building a healthier mind and body. Let's take a look at how Ayurveda suggests one to create the ultimate no makeup look using natural makeup and lifestyle changes.
Ayurveda and Natural Makeup Look
Ayurveda is the art of holistic wellbeing. There are two ways in which ancient scriptures explore the concept of beauty, I.e., from outside and from within. Beauty from within looks at a lifestyle that seeks to employ preventive bodily care. Following a daily regimen and dietary routine that make us healthy from within and keep ailments at bay is also bound to make us appear gorgeous even without makeup. Ayurveda prescribes several measures including seasonal and body type-based skin care routine, complimentary diet, pranayama and Vayyam, svedana I.e., steaming and incorporating some essential Ayurvedic herbs and oils within everyday regimen. A healthy mane is also likely to be luscious and thick while healthy skin presents itself in all its flawless glow. Therefore, a part of the Ayurvedic natural makeup look comes from a healthy body that glows on the outside owing to the care and nourishment given to it from within. The scripture also lays great emphasis on exercise, and regular sleep that are all, necessary for healthy mind and body.
Second aspect of this natural makeup comes from adornment of the body I.e., its ‘shringar’ on the outside with ‘abhushana’ and things such as kajal, naturally extracted tints, Itar's, ubtan and other ornaments. The idea of these adornments is merely an attempt to emphasis and highlight existing bodily features. The intention isn't to use cosmetic for cover up but to employ organic skin care products and a healthy lifestyle for a you that is beautiful from within. Following an ayurvedic regimen on regular basis can therefore nurture the body and maintain heathy and supple skin and thick and shining locks, making the need for excessive makeup completely redundant and frankly unnecessary.
