All of our favourite celebrity no-makeup makeup looks

IRL filter vibes

BEAUTYcrew Beauty Editor / March 24 2022

We’re all for makeup trends.

We’ve dabbled in glitter makeup, scoured our local crafts section thanks to the pearl makeup trend, and painted our lids green, yellow, pink and blue in pursuit of a fleeting fashion-forward moment. 

But something that’ll never go out of style is a classic face of no-makeup makeup

A pared down ode to natural beauty, no-makeup makeup is all about enhancing your features, and subtly masking any ‘imperfectons’ with expert application techniques. 

A light hand is a must and sheer blendable formulas are a given in this category. But what about inspiration?

We’ve hunted down some celebrity no-makeup makeup looks with the softest face beats you’ll ever see for just that purpose…

Bella Hadid

Bella Hadid is one of those people who can literally roll out of bed looking flawless. We genuinely love a low-key makeup look on the model, because then we can truly appreciate those chiseled features of hers. A subtle wash of bronzer on the lids, apples of the cheeks and nose? Sublime.


Hoyeon Jung

Squid Game star Hoyeon Jung already has a pretty plush pout, but when the model slash actress amps up the blush hue of her lips we can’t help but stare.


Shanina Shaik

Aussie model Shanina Shaik knows how to play up her naturally gorgeous features. Simply brush up the brows for understated arches and pep up the complexion with a hazy layer of cream blush.


Adut Akech

Turns out Australians know how to play it cool when it comes to makeup. Adut Akech doesn’t need to do much in the makeup department thanks to a flawless complexion. Can we talk about that natural glow she’s sporting? Obsessed.


Hailey Bieber

Hailey Bieber has a penchant for playing up her modelesque features with rose and neutral-hued makeup. Here, Bieber’s makeup artist Mary Phillips kept the focus on her impressive pout with a your-lips-but-better shade of lipstick.


Zoë Kravitz

Zoë Kravitz possesses a superhuman level of natural beauty that she no doubt inherited from her equally attractive parents. But to Kravitz’s credit, she has a keen ability to subtly enhance her features, such as with a light shading of her brows and a thin line of kohl to rim her brown eyes.

Briar Clark got her start in the media industry in 2017, as an intern for Marie Claire and InStyle. Since then, her keen interest in fashion and beauty has landed her gigs as a Digital Content Producer and Beauty Editor with titles like Girlfriend, Refinery29, BEAUTYcrew and beautyheaven. She loves the way seemingly innocuous topics like skin care and style have the ability to put a smile on people’s faces or make them think about themselves a little differently. A big believer in self love and experimentation, Briar has made a point of becoming the Australian beauty industry’s unofficial guinea pig for unusual treatments and daring hair trends. When she’s not testing out the latest beauty launches, Briar is big on broadening her horizons, mostly in the form of food but she’s also partial to travelling to new destinations both near and far (and of course, allocating an extra bag to bring their best beauty offerings home with her).
