Former Miss World Malaysia 2009, Thanuja Ananthan spills her quick, daily natural makeup look in Likely’s Get Ready Me. To know how you can do your makeup base in just three easy steps, keep scrolling. PS You don’t even need to apply foundation for this look!

Step 1: Prep your face with moisturiser 

Thanuja’s using her favourite moisturiser – Dermalogica but you can go ahead and you any moisturiser that you want. As long as you’ve moisturised your skin, it’s good to go!

Step 2: Conceal your eyebags with a concealer 

The TV host, model and actress then covers up any unwanted blemishes and dark spots with a concealer. Her trick is to use your finger and lightly dab the concealer to the areas you’d want to cover. She says, “It’s faster… You’re out of the door in minutes!” You don’t need a lot too, especially if the concealer that you’re using has got high coverage.

Step 3: Skip the foundation and use a face powder instead 

To apply the face powder evenly, Thanuja uses a kabuki brush to gently brush it across her face and under the eye area.  She tells Likely, “All I use is powder, even when I go for events. Unless it’s a major photoshoot but on a day-to-day basis, I don’t use any foundation.”

That’s it! Pretty simple and easy. You don’t even need a lot of products! To know Thanuja’s full beauty look, watch the tutorial below.
