When your skin decides to act up, it’s crucial to pay attention to its needs – whether it’s due to an imbalanced diet, hormonal shifts, or sensitivity. Instead of sticking to your usual heavy makeup routine, it’s time to let your skin breathe!

We stumbled upon a tutorial by INBORA인보라 on YouTube, where she spilled her top beauty tips for achieving a flawless, minimal makeup look that’ll have your skin looking as sweet as honey!

So, keep reading to discover the secrets of a foundation-free makeup routine for those challenging skin days.
