How to get the Perfect Flushed ‘No Lipstick’ Lipstick Look

Contrary to all the makeup tutorials on Social Media, for many of us, our busy schedule does not allow for us to get all glammed up with smokey eyes, the perfect pout and highlight beaming to the gods.

A more realistic get-ready for the average working woman comprises of very minimal makeup and chapstick.

Let’s be real.

We all want to look effortlessly beautiful with little to no effort in half the time. So how do we achieve that look?

The trick is a good moisturizer, brow gel, eyeliner and/or mascara like the one from Wander Beauty and a tinted lip balm.

Tinted lip balms are known to give you that fresh, natural look without the use of a lipstick. Here are a few favorites that are great alternatives to your plain old regular chapstick.

e.l.f. Tinted Lip Balm

We all know e.l.f. to be a super affordable drugstore brand that does carry amazing products like their tinted lip balms. These lip balms give your lips a natural, subtle color while keeping your lips hydrated at the same time. They come in fun flavors and colors like berry and peach.
