How To Do The No-Makeup Look With Claré Blanc

I love cosmetics but I am not really good with putting makeup on. I can’t contour; I don’t know how to get that winged eyeliner look nor do I know how to perfectly blend my eyeshadow. I’ve tried watching Youtube tutorial videos and would follow each and every step they say you should do, but I would just always end up frustrated every single time. So when I discovered mineral makeup products a few years back, I was very ecstatic! Finally, I can put some makeup on without requiring the proper skills (that I cannot seem to have) to do so!

Since then, mineral makeup have always been my go to; and I didn’t bother going back. I love how easy they are to apply while giving me that fresh natural look which I have grown to love – the no-makeup look. It’s probably a no-brainer why I’ve been in love with this look; it gives you that natural youthful glow while also highlighting your facial features.

I don’t wear makeup all the time. I only wear makeup when there’s a special occasion; and if I do, it has to be my favorite no-makeup look. It has never failed me; I’ve always gotten tons of compliments because of it. Today, I’ve partnered with Claré Blanc Minerals to bring you their mineral makeup line which will help us get that look.

About Claré Blanc Minerals

Claré Blanc was created out of a love for beauty and years of acquired knowledge about minerals. It is more than another cosmetics brand collection; it is a different life style choice. They know that makeup can simultaneously glamorize and nourish. That it can emphasize the assets of our beauty while covering up our imperfections. It also can be great fun without any negative health effects. You can read more about them here.

About the Products

clare blanc mineral makeup - mineral foundation in beige and medium, matte mineral blush in fuchsia, and luminizing mineral veil

I was provided with the Mineral Foundation in Beige & Medium (they sent me 2 samples) with SPF 15, Matte Mineral Blush in Fuchsia, and the Luminizing Mineral Veil Powder in Be Mine.

The superbalanced foundations are developed in such a way, so that they are suitable for all skin types, even dry, sensitive and allergy prone complexions. Their delicate, fine loose powder consistency makes it so that they perfectly blend into the skin while evening out its tone. The Mineral Foundation in Beige with SPF 15 is designed for individuals who have a complexion of a medium-peach color.

The blushes are perfect for subtly emphasizing the cheek bones and contouring the face. Their delicate and powdery consistency guarantees a uniform application of the cosmetic onto the cheek bones creating a natural effect. The Matte Mineral Blush in Fuchsia is a matte shade with a bold and confident pink pigment. When used in small amounts, it gives cheeks a fresh and youthful blush. In greater amounts, it’s great complement to bolder styles.

The luminizing powders exceptionally delicate and light formula gives a perfect finish to your make up, while freeing your inner glow at the same time. The Luminizing Mineral Veil Powder in Be Mine is an illuminating powder with delicate silver flecks that leave an extremely fresh-faced effect. When applied to the eyes, it makes them glow and offsets the impression of a tired face.

The Packaging

Each full-sized product comes in a white and teal box neatly wrapped in a Claré Blanc wrapping tissue paper, except for the foundation. Also, each full-sized product has a sticker inside the container sealing the holes which prevents the product from spilling on the cover, which I think is the standard when it comes to mineral makeup.

Using The Mineral Makeup

Here is my freshly washed face with nothing but moisturizer on. I have a very sensitive skin so you’ll notice the red patches on my face which I’d always have right after washing it. You’ll also probably notice that my face has a different tone than my neck. I honestly don’t know why; but it has always been like that. Even if I put foundation (any brand) on my neck to even out my skin tone, my face would always be slightly pinkier than my neck.

Before applying the products on, I washed my face and applied my moisturizer. Once my moisturizer has been absorbed, I applied my favorite makeup primer. Once it has set, I opened the mineral foundation container and put a little bit of the foundation on the lid. I used a bigger lid to do this since the lid for the sample ones are too small. I kept on swirling my brush until I saw that the product has been fully absorbed by the brush; then tapped any excess powder on the rim of the lid. I then started swirling the brush all over my face in circular motion.

For the mineral blush, just like the mineral foundation, I put a little bit of the blush on the lid, swirled my brush, tapped any excess powder, then applied it to my cheekbone in a horizontal line.

Before I applied the luminizing mineral veil, I decided to take some photos first so you can see the difference it can make.

Here is how it looked with just the mineral foundation and matte mineral blush. You will notice that it still gave me that perfect no makeup look that I want.

I then applied the luminizing mineral veil just like how I applied the mineral foundation. I put a little bit of the veil on the lid, swirled my brush, tapped any excess powder, then swirled the brush all over my face in circular motion.

Here is how it looked after applying the luminizing mineral veil on top of the mineral foundation and mineral blush. You will notice that there is only a subtle difference after I finished my makeup off with the luminizing mineral veil. But it did give me a fresher and more natural dewy finish as compared to without it.

My Thoughts On The Mineral Makeup

I love how light the mineral foundation is yet it provides me with enough coverage. The coverage is actually buildable so if you want more coverage, you could achieve that by applying more product on your face until you get the level of coverage that you want.

I was so happy that I chose the fuchsia matte mineral blush to try. I am in love with how it gave me that fresh and healthy glow with very little product. Just like the mineral foundation, the matte mineral blush is also buildable. Just keep on applying more product on your cheekbones until the desired intensity of color has been achieved. I love how I can use the same blush for both day and night. I’ll wear it just like how I’ve worn it here during daytime and apply more for a bolder look at night.

The luminizing mineral powder is the best way to set your makeup. As you can see in the pictures above, yes, it is still possible to get that natural looking no-makeup look even without the luminizing mineral veil powder. But if doing something that doesn’t even take a minute can give you a more youthful dewy glow, would you even dare say no to that?

The Verdict

I am absolutely in love with the Claré Blanc Mineral makeup line. It gives me that no-makeup look but it looks more fresh and naturally dewy than what I’ve been using. I loved how long lasting this mineral makeup line is; I didn’t have to do any retouches at all. My makeup still looked fresh until I had to wash my face at the end of the day.

I also love the fact that my face didn’t breakout after using the mineral makeup line. As I’ve mentioned earlier, I have a very sensitive skin; my skin reacts to just about anything. On any given day, you would always see red patches on my face just because (up until now I still don’t know what causes the flare ups). That’s why it has been very hard for me to look for products that won’t irritate my skin; and when I found one I have to stick with it.

And the fact that my skin didn’t react to this mineral makeup line, is a testament to how mild, gentle, and natural the ingredients are that they have used for these products. I would highly recommend this makeup line to anyone who’s been using mineral makeup or those who have been on the fence about trying them.

    • We do; we deserve it! Thank you!

  • Gorgeous! I used to use mineral makeup and recently have been using drugstore BB cream (mostly because of its cost-effectiveness). I had not heard of this brand of mineral makeup and am interested to learn more!

  • Always fun to see before and afters. I love a product with an SPF. 🙂

  • This no makeup look really looks great, I should try it! I never heard of Claré Blanc products before, so I’m glad that I discovered them here!

  • Hi Belle! You look fantastic with or without make-up! You rock the natural look! I hope they bring Claré Blanc Minerals here in the Philippines. 🙂

    • Thank you! That is so true!

  • I’m an all natural based type of lady lol. Mineral makeup is my go to.

  • awerner90

    This looks amazing on you! You have beautiful skin..

    Xoxo Amber

  • loveyoumoretoo

    This is so pretty! You are beautiful without makeup but the mineral veil gives you a gorgeous glow.

  • First of all you are gorgeous! This product does make a wonder. It softens the look of the skin. The natural look is a beautiful look especially when we need a daily make up without looking put on a mock up.

    • Thank you! That is so true! And I just can’t imagine how much time it will probably take me having to get ready if I have to wear heavy makeup everyday.

  • Beautiful! I like how this captures your natural beauty!!

  • I love the natural look! I prefer it way more than a heavy look and like you, I’ve never been much good at doing trendy makeup on my face, even with tutorials. You are gorgeous either way, but the natural look is definitely your look! 😀

    • Thank you! You are so sweet!

  • Gorgeous and great tips, I love how you look SO natural and show off you natural beauty without anything heavy! Love it

    Courtney Bentley ||

    • Thank you! That’s what I love about it!

  • I haven’t heard of this before! Sounds like a great product. I really should start wearing makeup more often because it makes a huge difference on me…or so I’ve been told.

    • Thank you! You can definitely wear something like this every day! 🙂

  • You of course look beautiful as always! I love the simple look of this makeup. Not too heavy but definitely a more pulled together look than just avoiding makeup. Lovely!

    • Thank you! You are so sweet!

  • Gorgeous colors and packaging. So pretty!

  • I also love mineral makeup and I too don’t use much of it. Honestly up until a year ago I had never worn mascara. I had to watch a video of how to put it on ?

    • Glad to know I’m not the only one. 🙂

  • Wow! Looks amazing! I’m going to have to try this brand out!

    • Thank you! Let me know how you like it.

  • I have not tried mineral makeup before! This sounds like great make up to wear, I love that it looks more natural.

    • That is so true! Thank you!

  • You look amazing! I love all the before/afters so you can really get a sense of what the makeup does. I will have to check this brand out!

    • Thank you! Let me know how you like it!

  • Never heard about this brand before. By the way you look beautiful even without make-up. I have to check this brand and see how my skin react to it.

    • Thank you! Let me know how you like it!

  • Oh this is so lovely! Great post xx

  • 21flavorsofsplendor

    I have never used mineral makeup before, but I will definitely give it a try now. I also rarely wear make either and I gave up watch youtube videos a long time ago because it never turned out how theirs did either.

    • Glad to know I’m not the only one. 🙂

  • Mineral makeup is my favorite makeup to use! It gives you such a great, natural look!

    xo Kelsey |

  • You look amazing! I also love doing the “no makeup” look – mostly because I think too much makeup doesn’t look good on my skin. I will definitely be checking out this brand!

    • Thank you! Let me know what you think!

  • Awesome! I’m always on the look out for great makeup products that are easy to apply!

  • You look lovely!

  • Really love the final look, your skin looks so clean and fresh xo

  • These look amazing! I love your flat lay and what awesome products!

  • tara8910

    I like this look. I have never liked a lot of makeup!

  • You sound like me! I am clueless when it comes to makeup so I never use it. this post is perfect for me as I have recently started looking into easy, inexpensive, natural makeup cause I’m starting to feel like I need to wear it now. Thanks for sharing!

    • Thank you! And you’re welcome!

  • lovelysilvia

  • Debra

    It looks great, I am all about looking like you don’t have any make up on at all. I will have to look into this brand

    • Thank you! Let me know how you like it.

  • I love when foundation is buildable. I don’t wear a lot of makeup but sometimes I like to impress lol so then I would apply more. I usually go for the not wearing any makeup look so this would be right up my alley,

    • Buildable foundations are the best!

  • I love mineral based makeup, it just feels cleaner and lighter on my skin.

    • That’s so true!

  • This look is great on you! Love the packaging of the products. I don’t normally wear a lot of makeup either and will have to check out these products!

  • You look lovely. Mineral makeup is great, particularly when your skin is so pretty to begin with!

  • This is amazing! Great post xx

  • terristeffes

    Thanks for sharing your tips and I think you pulled this look off beautifully. I am all about the no make up look.

  • I’m makeup challenged so usually forgo any at all. This sounds like a product I can learn to use and still look natural

  • This make up looks really good and natural on you. I really love how that blush looks, i think i am going to get some for myself!

    • Thank you! Let me know how you like it!

  • I think the no makeup natural look is very flattering on you! You should wear your makeup like this every day.

    • I can try! Haha! Thank you!

  • Never heard of this brand, but I do like mineral makeup. I feel like its good for your skin…and looks natural. Oh, and I cant contour either!

    • Thank you! Glad to know I’m not the only one.

  • I love this. Light and pretty but not over done. It look very natural but brings out the beauty of the face.

  • Wow I can’t believe you’re actually wearing in makeup in the last photos! I’ve never seen makeup that looks so natural 🙂

    • Thank you! That’s why I love it! 🙂

  • I’ve never tried mineral makeup. But then again, I don’t wear any makeup. 🙂 But the Clare Blanc line looks so natural, it’s a good look for you.

  • Jennifer Marx (JenuineMom)

    I really like your no-makeup makeup. It looks sweet and simple. Though, for the record, you are also awesome without the makeup. 🙂

    • Thank you! You are so sweet!

  • planningthemagic

    I’m sure it’s super handy not having to touch up. A makeup that looks so light usually does. This is a great find, thanks for sharing!

  • I don’t wear makeup at all, but it looks like high quality makeup. Although, I have to admit I’ve never heard of mineral makeup

  • I love the look you created. It is so pretty and natural. I haven’t had much success with mineral makeup. I’m one of those rare people who actually break out from many natural products. Not sure which ingredient causes the issues, as I strive to use as many natural based products as possible, but sometimes they still cause irritation.

    • Thank you! I’m so sorry to hear that though. I hope you find a product that’s perfect for your skin!

  • I’m not a big makeup wearer, so I love how light and airy this is. Looks wonderful.

  • I just had to throw away my mineral foundation and it made me so sad. I love the ease of mineral makeup and it’s great you’ve found amazing products that work for you!

    • Awww! Sorry to hear that! Thank you!

  • It looks so natural! i’m glad you found something you enjoy using!

    xx nicole

  • You look great! I love how non-overdone it looks. Of course it helps that you’re pretty cute without makeup already. 😉

  • Looks great on you! I’ll have to try clare blanc

    I love the no make-up look. So simple and great for daily wear.

    • Thank you! That is so true!

    • That is so true! Thank you!

  • It took me a while to learn how to contour. I’ve decided to visit a Sephora store so they can do a makeover. From there I kept practicing. I love discovering new brands, will check out this collections. ..xo, ?

    • That’s awesome! Let me know how you like it!

  • I have never heard of Clare Blanc. It looks really good on you, though. Maybe I will try it out on myself.

  • This is my first time hearing about this brand of makeup. I love the packaging too and your before/after look. I can’t wait to try it out.

    • Thank you! Let me know how you like it!

  • My skin is so fair that I have a hard time finding any shades that don’t make it obvious I’m wearing makeup. I can’t tell in your no makeup look though!

  • You look gorgeous dear. The no makeup look is so refreshing. I know it’s actually hard to make it look this good. I need to try out these amazing products. Thanks for sharing.

  • I don’t really wear make-up, most of the time I just have some lipstick on. I think it’s awesome that you tried this brand! I love the effect, you can really notice the difference.

  • I’ve been all about mineral makeup lately too! It all started with mineral sunscreen and now I’m exploring mineral makeup! I definitely heard of Clare Blanc before and I’m so excited to test out their products soon too!

    • Thank you! Let me know what you think about their products!

  • Wow! Really great post! I am no where near mastering the no-makeup look! It’s all or nothing! LOL
