eBeauty - The ‘No Makeup’ Makeup Look

Hey everyone, Sophie S.K Beauty here. I’m excited to launch my weekly eBeauty Blog here at echo.ie. Each week I will take on makeup products, skincare products, tanning products, latest trends, “how to’s” and much more. If you have any questions or suggestions I’d love to hear from you, email me at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or follow me on Instagram @sophieskmakeup. Hope you enjoy!

This week’s focus is Spring Makeup Essentials. All products used are from my own makeup kit.

All the products, tips and tricks you need to achieve that ultimate fresh “no makeup” makeup look.



Flormar Radiance Primer – really affordable can be bought in Penneys and most pharmacies. Gives a gorgeous glow to the skin while prolonging the wear of foundation.

Bareminerals BarePro Foundation – Light to medium buildable coverage. A little more pricey but quality is second to none. Enriched with vitamins, minerals and papaya enzymes, this foundation is clinically proven to reduce appearance of pore size and improve skin texture and hydration over time.


Milani Baked Bronzers and Blushers – really affordable again, can be bought online at BeautyBay.com. Give the skin that natural healthy glow and definition that is perfect for day time and anyone who wouldn’t be too keen on that severe contoured look.

Mac Soft and Gentle Highlighter – a gorgeous pearlized baked highlighter that gives that radiant glow off the skin. Perfect for beginners as it is not as intense as other highlighters.

Mario Badescu Facial Spray – I use this to set my makeup. I feel like this eliminates that “powdery” look and enhances that glow!

Brows and Lashes

NYX Microblade Brow Pencil – This is a dupe for Benefit Precisely My Brow, perfect for filling in those sparse brows! It is also double ended with a brow brush to blend out any excess product so that your brows are looking natural!

NYX Tinted Brow Mascara – This is essential for anyone that experienced that over plucking trend of the 90’s! Because it is tinted, it grabs on to invisible hairs that you didn’t even know you had to make your brows look fuller.

Benefit Roller Lash – This is the perfect natural daytime mascara, in my opinion. I use the Brown shade during the day as sometimes I find black mascara can be a little bit intense. The brush is also amazing for lengthening the lashes and giving the right amount of volume.
