For an easy everyday look, shop the exact products in Kaori’s beauty bag.
With the rise of skinimalism to the three-dot concealer method, we’ve been noticing the no-makeup makeup look everywhere. Even celebrities and content creators are embracing the effortless era on social media, going against the typical Instagram looks characterized by bold brows, full coverage bases, and winged liners. The no-makeup makeup is basically the bare minimum, focusing on letting your skin breathe and shine through.
When we talk about the no-makeup makeup look, one particular celebrity comes to mind—Kaori Oinuma. The illusion of a makeup-free face, when you’re actually wearing makeup, is no walk in the park, but Kaori is known for her expertise in the field. And luckily, she shared the exact products she incorporates into her skincare-first, makeup-later routine with us.
For Kaori, it’s all about that natural flush. Take inspiration from her effortless everyday look, and delicately apply a touch of blush to either the apples or the high points of your cheeks. For those seeking a sun-kissed glow with their no-makeup makeup look, Kaori recommends the fan-favorite NARS blush in the shade Orgasm—a natural, peach-pink with a subtle shimmer.
Benefit Cosmetics 24-HR Brow Setter
Nothing beats those au naturale brows, but most people aren’t blessed with a perfectly shaped and well-defined pair. Regardless, Kaori kills the no-makeup look by brushing them upwards with the Benefit Cosmetics 24-HR Brow Setter. This clear brow gel doesn’t disappear, making it one of Kaori’s must-haves in her beauty bag.
Maybelline Falsies Lash Lift Mascara
Even if you don’t feel alert and energetic, you can still appear that way by brightening up your eyes with a touch of liner or mascara. Kaori keeps it simple, using the Maybelline Falsies Lash Lift to achieve that wide-awake look.
DHC Moisturizing Medicated Lip Balm Cream
If lipsticks are not your thing, you’re just like Kaori—keeping her lips makeup-free, quite literally. Instead of using colored creams, her personal pick is the DHC Lip Cream with vitamin E, olive oil, and aloe vera leaf extracts for hydrated lips. After all, who wants their lips looking chapped and crusty?
Dior Addict Lip Glow
How could anyone resist the Dior Addict Lip Glow? It adds a subtle sheen that enhances Kaori’s natural beauty with your lips, but better. Her lips aren’t just hydrated; this gloss is the final step in sealing her no-makeup makeup look.
