Once in a while, a girl will want to stay up in their pajamas with hair in a messy bun or a 5 seconds ponytail and just lay in bed or watch movies all day. But some other times, girls also like to feel like a princess where they dress up all neat and nice with perfect hair dangling in the sides. When this moment happens, a full face makeup is pretty mandatory, especially those who would want to flaunt and capture this glorious (and rare) moment by posting a picture on their Instagram.
Full face makeups might make your skin looks like they have a healthy glow with no imperfections such as eye bags, acne scars, redness, so on and so forth. But the truth is, to achieve this look, one has to put on piles and piles of makeup that would block on their skin thus, making it not much of a healthy regime for your skin to go through. Therefore, we provide you a list of skin-friendly full face makeup products for you to try on
