Entering the post-pandemic, it is time to adjust back to our regular routines and start going to the office on a daily basis. It must be tough to start adjusting back to a routine we have not done in a couple of years, especially for women who now need to spend more time to not only dress up, but also to put on makeup. However, fortunately for us, there is now a viral makeup trend that can make you look effortlessly beautiful without spending too much time, and that is the famous Clean Girl Aesthetic makeup look that went viral in 2022 ever since Hailey Bieber was seen with it.
For those of you who are not familiar with the term Clean Girl Aesthetic, this makeup trend focuses on a “no-makeup makeup” look that looks effortless with some signature elements, such as glowing skin, glossy lipstick, fluffy eyebrows, and minimal eye makeup. The glam makeup trend is now in the past, and now the minimalist makeup trend is dominating. The good news is that this look can be achieved with minimal products, if you want the look to impress without spending too much time, follow the three simple steps below!
- For base makeup, less is more!
To achieve the perfect skin look in the Clean Girl Aesthetic, it's important to prep your skin before applying base makeup. Use a range of skincare products like serum, moisturizer, and SPF to give your skin a healthy glow. Unlike the glam makeup look, the Clean Girl Aesthetic emphasizes a no-makeup look, so use tinted moisturizer and concealer. Don't forget to apply a coral blush to give your cheeks a touch of color.
The queen of Clean Girl makeup on TikTok, Hailey Bieber's basic routine involves moisturizer mixed with a few drops of liquid highlighter to give a natural glow. It’s time to say goodbye to heavy foundation and say hi to a moist look.
- Neutral color is your best friend when it comes to eye make up
For eye makeup, Clean Girl Aesthetic highlights your natural features without using too much product. Opt for neutral colors like beige, taupe, brown, and gray, try to avoid bold colors as much as you can.
To create a simple yet effective eye look, start by applying neutral eyeshadow all over the eyelid. Then, use a darker color to add depth to the crease of the eye and blend for a natural look. To give it a glossy feel, use a light-colored highlighter on the inner corner of the eye. Next, use brown or black eyeliner to sharpen your lash line. Apply it thinly for a subtle effect or thicker for a more dramatic look. Finally, don't forget to use mascara!
- Glossy lips as the final touch
It is time to bring out every natural-looking color like nude, pink, or peach and don't forget to use a lip gloss on top with a non-sticky formula. To get the perfect lip look, start by applying a lip balm or lip moisturizer to hydrate and smoothen dryness. Then, use a lip liner that matches your natural lip color. If you want to achieve a softer lip look, try a lip balm or tinted lip color.
The Clean Girl Aesthetic is a makeup look that embraces natural beauty and to enhance your features with minimal makeup. With the right skincare routine and a few basic makeup products, you can achieve a natural, glowing look that is perfect for everyday wear especially for you who wants to impress at events or on a daily basis at the office. Remember, the key is to focus on skincare, use minimal makeup, and add a touch of color to enhance your facial features.
