At DB Cosmetics, we’re all about natural makeup looks that enhance what you already have, rather than covering it up. Think: Fresh, dewy skin that glows as though lit from within, and highlights your best features. After all, who doesn’t want to look like the best possible version of themselves?
Thankfully, achieving a “no makeup” look is every bit as easy and breezy as it sounds. Below, we’ve put together our ultimate 5 minute makeup tutorial to help you nail a glowy, natural everyday makeup look that’s perfectly on-trend every season. Read on to discover our best makeup tips and tricks for fresh, fast, and fabulous everyday makeup, and get glammed up in no time now.
1. Start with primer
When it comes to makeup, few things are worse than carefully applying your products, only to have them melt off your face a few hours later. Enter: our Pre-Foundation Moisturising Primer.
Think of primer as the key to long-lasting makeup. A good primer smooths your skin, blurs any imperfections, minimises the appearance of pores, and helps makeup stay on all day. Plus, it stops the rest of your makeup from flaking or settling into any fine lines or creases in your skin. Our hydrating primer is also packed with skin-loving ingredients like Aloe Vera extract to soothe, Vitamin C to even out skin tone, and Vitamin E to give your skin a gorgeous, healthy glow.
Simply use clean fingers to apply a layer of primer all over your face, then give it a minute to sink in before moving on to the next step.

2. Ace your base with a BB cream
For a natural everyday makeup look, skip heavy foundations and opt for a BB cream instead. This versatile daily makeup product glides on easily and offers sheer, buildable coverage that looks just like your skin - only better.
Our BB Cream Beauty Balm is the ultimate multi-tasking makeup essential, and is available in a range of shades to suit all skin types. It hydrates the skin and covers up blemishes without hiding your best features, like your freckles!
Plus, it’s infused with antioxidants, peptides, vitamins, and Green Tea to brighten the skin, boost collagen, and plump fine lines. The result? Healthy, radiant-looking skin!
For a flawless base, pop a pea-sized amount of BB cream on the back of your hand. Then, use your fingers or a beauty sponge to blend it into your skin until you get the level of coverage you want.
3. Add a pop of colour to your cheeks
For a refreshing burst of colour, grab our Make Em Blush in Peach Glow and your favourite natural makeup brush, and say cheese. Why? You want to apply the natural-looking blush onto the apples of your cheeks, and they’re more pronounced when you smile.
Our blush formula is creamy and super blendable, so a little goes a long way. You can buff it into your skin using a brush for the perfect sunkissed colour!
Because we’re big believers in makeup that doubles up as skincare, Make Em Blush also contains Aloe Vera and CoQ10 to calm, plump, and smooth the skin.

4. Shape your brows
If you only have a few minutes to do your makeup, take the time to groom your brows - it’s the quickest way to look polished with very little effort. To enhance your brows naturally, grab our brow pencil, a dual-ended pencil with a brush on one side and a pencil on the other.
First, brush your brows up and away to tame any unruly hairs and create a shape to follow when you flip to the pencil side. Then, fill in any gaps in your brows with light, feathery strokes. Use your natural arch as a guide, and “flick” the pencil upwards for a natural result.
Thanks to its creamy Cocoa and Shea Butter formula, the pencil glides on like a dream and won’t tug on or irritate your skin.
5. Coat your lashes
When you’re going for an easy everyday makeup look, you want to keep your eyes as minimal as possible. So, focus on adding definition with a coat of our Amazing Volume Mascara. It’ll leave you with bold, showstopping lashes and zero clumps!
The natural-looking mascara does double-duty, and contains Vitamin E to strengthen your lashes at the same time.
6. Fake a fuller pout
Next up: Lips! For instant volume, swipe on the Lip Boost Plump Treatment in Sweetie Pie. This plumping lip gloss naturally hydrates your lips and helps them appear fuller and softer. Don’t worry if you feel a slight tingling sensation after application - this just means it’s working its magic!
7. Set your makeup
Last but not least, don’t forget to set your makeup in place. Our new Rosewater Setting Spray will extend the wear time of your makeup and leave your skin looking dewy, radiant, and fresh.
This refreshing spray is infused with Rosewater to calm and nourish the skin, so you can even pop it in your handbag and spritz your skin whenever it needs a pick-me-up. Plus, it smells incredible, and doubles as a handy hit of aromatherapy throughout the day.
