one layer makeup hack

Sephora customers often prefer the following products when searching for one layer makeup hack.

One layer makeup is a technique for seamless makeup application that prevents a cakey appearance. Apply all cream products at once instead of layering foundation, concealer, blush, and bronzer on top of one another. Dot some of each product onto the face then spray the complexion with a setting spray and blend with a damp sponge. Your makeup will look flawless without using too much product!

This bronzer is everything: creamy and easy to apply, won’t fade or change tone during day; lovely for a “no makeup, makeup look”; layers well on top of foundation, without clumping; also, doesn’t grab dry areas on my very dry skin. ...Saie's Sun Melt looks natural and gives me just enough glow - and the brush is the perfect applicator. I'm not a huge makeup wearer but have been loving tossing some of this on before running out the door just to give that natural sunkissed look. ...Creamy and Easy to Layer

I ordered shade 08W and it matched great.

It doesn’t emphasize texture or pores and blends in beautifully on bare skin and layers amazing over makeup. I understand the negative reviews about the half-empty tube and I admit it does feel empty but for me it’s totally worth it! ...I though I was using it wrong because it doesn’t show up on me at all.

Color: Tiger Lily Queen - coral

1.4K Reviews


It’s got a fiery red colour, which I absolutely love! You can apply one layer for a subtle look, or build it up for a more bold look. ...I received this product as a gift to review, and it is a good product for the natural makeup on my no foundation days. But it didn’t layer well with my current foundations and pulled it up and caused patchy spots.

What it is: A long-wearing, soft, matte, monochromatic nude color for the eyes, cheeks, and lips.

What it does: Hot off the runway, and paired with high fashion or bohemian chic looks, All Over Face Color is multitasking and dual-ended with soft color balm on one side and a blending brush on the other end for easy application that will not feather. Just draw on this weather-resistant, non-drying stick directly onto the skin, dabbing softly with fingers, or you can stipple on nude color with the included brush. You delivers custom, all-over face color that leaves your skin with a soft matte or dewy, lightweight, and elegant finish.

Color: Medium - natural matte finish for light-medium to medium skin tones (warm golden)

709 Reviews


absolutely love this product. applies and blends like an absolute dream. i actually enjoy the brush that comes with it too. when using the brush, i find a bouncing motion is the best technique for blending it into the skin, not a back and forth motion like how you would with powder products....mid like the milk makeup one...I was underwhelmed after I bought it tbh, I have the milk makeup one and they feel the same not super blendable, should've gotten the rare beauty or the fenty one.

What it is: A dual-ended cream shaping stick that is buildable and swipes on seamlessly for true-to-skin definition that dries down to a natural matte finish.

Super light weight & brightening. It is buildable, but one layer for me worked amazing....This concealer had a medium coverage and is buildable if you’re trying to cover more than one layer can. It blends really well after you let it sit on the face for a few seconds.

Color: Leo - neutral cocoa brown

144 Reviews


It really is sheer, so I like to layer it on to get fuller coverage. The only thing is that it almost smells like baby powder?...a light wash of color just a little darker a little pinker than my natural lip shade. the matte texture doesn't smudge easily and it goes on in thin layers. i was able to forget i was wearing it throughout my day with how comfortable it is. i am very fair so it may not be everyone's your lips but better shade but the sheerness does bode well for it on that front.

108 Reviews


I love these cream blushes because there’s no need to pack a brush - just toss in my makeup bag and go. It’s soooo easy to blend. As an added bonus this one is super cute!...If you're pale like me (we're talking lighter than most foundation ranges go type of light) don't be afraid to skip over the pink blush and get this one. It is pigmented but blends out nicely. I recommend that you apply with fingers and you can blend with them as well, but I prefer using a Real Techniques foundation brush to get it looking more seamless.
