Natural Is The New Black

Going au naturel seems to be the latest trend in makeup. We have seen celebs everywhere take a step back from the glam and flaunt their makeup-free faces. Adele just posed on the cover of Rolling Stone without any make up at all- talk about empowerment! Demi Lovato also recently appeared makeup-free on the cover of Vanity Fair. We love when we see our favorite celebs post selfies of their bare faces. Especially when it comes from those celebs known for their heavy makeup usage, cough cough, the Kardashians. The days of hiding behind designer foundation and color palates are gone. It is 2015, a time when women should be proud of the way they are, and not afraid to show it. Sit back and take off all that makeup, darling. Its time to embrace this makeup-free trend yourself.


New You has your healthy step by step guide on how to remove your makeup correctly, so that you can put your best face forward, always.


Step 1: Eye makeup remover

Ah, the pesky eye makeup remover. In a perfect world our eye makeup would come off easily with a regular face cleanser, but that is not the case. You can’t skip this part of the process because the oils in the remover help break down the layers in your favorite liner and mascara. So before washing your face, take your go-to eye makeup remover (whether it be a wipe or liquid on a cotton ball) and go to town on your eye make up.


Step 2: Cleansing Oil

Cleansing oil is to the face what makeup remover is to the eyes. The formula in cleansing oil melts away the concealer, foundation, and powder combo you apply on your skin for the day. Massage the cleansing oil onto your face, then dampen to create a mild foam before rinsing.


Step 3: Cleansing device

Using your hands or harsh bristled brushes to cleanse your face isn’t the optimal method for your cleansing routine. Adding a cleansing device in the mix gives you a deeper and more hygienic clean. Some of these devices even offer an added bonus: anti-aging technology.

We suggest: Foreo- LUNA for Sensitive/ Normal Skin – ($199, Sephora.com)


Step 4: Micellar water

The final element of your skin care regimen is the latest trend in skin care: micellar water. It falls somewhere between toner and cleanser. Micellar water is an enchanted elixir that fully  removes dirt and oil from your skin without stripping your complexion. Soak a cotton pad with micellar water and rub it across your face. You’ll be surprised at how much dirt and make up appears, even after the last 3 steps.


There is a lot in the makeup removal process that many of us overlook. Taking care of your skin while you’re young is crucial to keeping your skin looking flawless over the years. With this new makeup removing process you will be on your way to accomplishing the no makeup trend that celebrities are embracing. After a while your skin will be so radiant that you might even think of ditching the makeup forever.
