How to Do No-Makeup Makeup the Athleisure Way

Calling all athleisure fans: if your go-to look is cycling shorts and an oversized tee, we’re here to bring a little sports-luxe to your beauty bag. Think a glossy, glowing, just-finished-spin-class-but-I-still-look-great kind of vibe, perfect for laid-back weekends or on-the-go natural makeup looks. Read on for our glow-to guide to achieving healthy-looking skin and a fresh, flawless finish. Here’s how to take athleisure beauty from work to workout with no-makeup makeup…

1. Turn Up the Base

Bring sporty style to your base with a just-worked-out glow. Mix a few drops of NEW Lasting Radiance Foundation with your usual moisturiser for a super-hydrated, healthy-looking base. Starting at the centre of your nose, apply the tiniest amount to allow your natural skin to shine through. Use a tapered brush to blend formula upwards and outwards onto skin. Continue blending down onto the neck and décolletage for the most seamless, undetectable finish.

2. Face Gym


Whether you’ve spent the past hour doing hot yoga or not, we’ve got the answer to faking that post-workout glow like a pro. For a look that’s more dewy flush than slicked with sweat, squeeze a small amount of Insta Strobing Highlighter onto the back of your hand, warming up the formula with your fingertips. Then, dot the highlighter onto the brow bone and tops of cheekbones, before using fingertips to tap the light-reflective formula into skin. For an extra radiance boost, continue to tap skin around cheekbones to increase circulation, leaving a healthy-looking finish to your skin. Glow on, girl.

3. Lash Routine

For the most natural makeup look, keep eyes bare and lashes long, smooth and separated. Our ultimate technique for the perfect no-makeup lash look? Start by placing the Wonder’Luxe Volume Mascara wand at the root of lashes, pushing upwards to lift. Then, sweep the wand through lashes in a zig-zag motion to smooth and separate. When you get to the tips, hold the wand at the end of lashes to lock in a natural-looking curl. Repeat to cover all lashes for a glossy, clump-free finish.

4. Brow Trainer

To keep your no-makeup makeup look as natural as possible, go for full and fluffy eyebrows rather than sculpted and defined. Wonder’Full Brow Mascara does the hard work for you, with tiny fibres infused in the 24-hour waterproof formula to fill and plump your arches. Simply sweep upwards through brows to create a fuller finish that will stay put - even if you do decide to hit the gym.

5. The Cool Down

Once you’ve finished, fix your athleisure beauty look for a post-workout glow that lasts all day. Mist Insta Fix & Go Setting Spray onto skin for a super-hydrating and lightly cooling spritz. Finish with a sweep of Oh My Gloss! Oil Tint to rehydrate lips with a light sheen. How’s that for mood-boosting endorphins?
