11 Makeup-Free Tips for How to Look Beautiful Without Makeup
As we’re writing this, summer is here, and temperatures are rising. If you’re spending a lot of time outside, you might be tempted to put away your makeup—after all, no one loves the feeling of foundation sweating off your face or streaking mascara. This year, let’s embrace looking beautiful without makeup. You’ll get a serious confidence boost, and avoiding makeup is better for your skin anyway. We’ve compiled the best expert beauty tips for how to go makeup-free and look good.
One of the most desirable looks right now is “golden hour” skin: that glowing, dewy complexion during the time between sunset and sunrise. The light is soft, intimate, and gorgeous as it hits your face. Makeup artists love to create golden hour skin with makeup, but we’re all about letting your natural beauty shine.
Let’s dive in.
How can I get flawless skin naturally?
The key to looking beautiful without makeup is to take fantastic care of your skin. No matter how much makeup or filters you use, it doesn’t change the quality of the skin underneath. That’s why our first tips are all about building a solid foundation for healthy, glowing skin.
Take your anti-aging skincare routine seriously
Contrary to popular belief, “anti-aging” is not just about reversing wrinkles and other unsightly skin features. Anti-aging skincare routines are also about prevention. Think of it as working out and eating healthy to prevent future disease, weight gain, or muscle loss.
Anti-aging skincare rituals are ideal for your 20s and up. Collagen, the protein that keeps your skin from sagging, starts decreasing dramatically after your 20s. By creating a daily routine now, you can set the stage for plump, firm, and supple skin that shines without makeup.
Exfoliate at least twice a week
Exfoliation helps remove dead skin cells that can build up. A good exfoliant will also remove extra oils and bacteria from your hands, the environment, and more.
Alpha-hydroxy acids (AHA) are often the best exfoliant option for no-makeup beauty. AHAs are preferable for dry skin, sensitive skin, and anti-aging purposes because they provide hydration while exfoliating. AHAs can also help influence skin thickness and stimulate collagen production.
Use a microcurrent mask twice a week
Face masks can help get rid of excess oils, pull out impurities, hydrate, and improve the overall appearance of your skin. Plus, making time for a mask is a powerful form of self-care for many people.
If you’re going to take time for a mask, you might as well use the best quality possible. With our Premium Microcurrent Dual Face Masks, you can experience an at-home facelift without fillers, procedures, or doctor visits. FRANZ sheet masks use our Tissue X® microcurrent technology to create gentle waves across the skin. The movement opens up your pores while releasing micro hyaluronic acid that gets six times deeper into your skin. The technology and hydration tone, tighten, and de-age the skin with each application.

Apply a firming peptide serum
Peptides are naturally occurring amino acids in the skin that can stimulate collagen production. Face serums with peptides are beneficial for:
- Reducing wrinkles
- Improving skin strength and firmness
- Evening out skin tone
One of the best peptides to address signs of aging around your eyes has a long, complicated name: Methionyl r-Clostridium Botulinum Polypeptide-1 Hexapeptide-40. The name is strange, but the function is amazing.
This peptide is found in our Botalin Age Repair Eye Serum and is derived from botulinum, which is used in botox injections to smooth wrinkles and fine lines. It easily penetrates the skin, delivers tiny moisturizing molecules that reach deep layers of the skin, and restores and brightens under-eye concerns.
Acetyl Hexapeptide-8, also known as the “firming peptide,” is also a top choice for healthy makeup-free skin. It helps restore the skin’s volume, bounce, and elasticity, which is why it’s a key ingredient in the Wrinkle Away RED Microcurrent Dual Eye Mask.shop Botalin Age Repair Eye Serum shop Wrinkle Away RED Eye Mask
Invest in a high-quality hydrating face cream
If you want to maintain hydrated, glowing, dewy skin at all times, pay attention to your face cream. After cleansing and toning, your skin deserves a moisturizing product that will get deep inside your skin’s layers while providing anti-aging ingredients.
Rose Quartz Moisturizing Face Cream is an ideal daily moisturizer for smoother, brighter skin. It also contains rosewater as an anti-inflammatory, Tiger Leaf to promote better circulation and collagen production, and rose flower oil for antioxidants, wrinkle reducers, and to manage hyperpigmentation.
Those are the best steps on how to go makeup-free and look good—from the inside out. Next, let's talk about a couple of ways to promote beautiful skin on the surface.
Take time for yourself every day—and BREATHE
When you’re stressed, it often shows on your skin. For flawless skin with no makeup, care for your mental health, too. Take time each day to breathe and do something you enjoy.
Eat well and drink plenty of water
You’ve probably guessed by now that hydration is important for healthy, beautiful skin. Drink plenty of clean, filtered water each day, and eat whole foods as much as possible.
Don't skip out on sleep
Lack of sleep contributes to aging signs on the skin. Look beautiful without makeup by getting at least 7-8 hours of sleep each night.
Consider teeth whitening
Whiter teeth help show off your smile and light up your whole makeup-free face.
Consider whitening toothpaste and mouthwash, or buy whitening strips to use at home.
Keep your brows in good shape
Shaped brows—even without makeup—are everything right now. Keep your brows groomed and show off their natural beauty.
Give your lips some love, too
Don’t forget hydration for your lips, too! Hydrated lips will naturally show a pretty color that compliments the smile on your “naked” face.
