After going a full day without makeup, I was inspired to skip foundation the following day. At first, it felt scary to be so barefaced — exposed! But it allowed my skin to breathe. The experiment made me realize that I don't need a full face of paint — concealer, cream blush, eyebrow gel, and mascara will do.
Since I have sensitive skin, I focus on gentle, hydrating products. To prep for the shoot, I used the Tata Harper Resurfacing Mask to get rid of dead skin cells. Then, I added moisturizers like the Tatcha Radiant Deep Brightening Serum, Charlotte Tilbury Magic Cream, and La Mer Illuminating Eye Gel. These brightening, nourishing products give me a natural glow. Right before my no-makeup photo, I coated my lips with balm from La Prairie's Anti-Aging Eye and Lip Perfection à Porter compact — it's not cheap, but it's a travel necessity!
