Natural glam makeup sounds more like an oxymoron than anything else. But in reality, it isn’t. Glam makeup is a great way to achieve natural looking skin without any of the unnatural shine or flakiness that you may come across when using synthetic products. It’s also a good way to avoid messing up your skin with irritating powders or other products that can be harsh on your skin. Here’s how to apply natural glam makeup that will turn heads and have your friends and family members asking you where you got that amazing look.
One of the most important things to remember when practicing natural glam makeup is that you need to have a perfectly blended base. For this look, you’ll want to make sure you use a neutral concealer along with a high quality eyeliner. To start, you’ll want to make a flawless base. Using a powder foundation over your entire lid from the lash line to the brow bone will give your eyes the appearance of extra darkness and will help cover up any ‘disaster’ flaws.
Once you’ve got your foundation blend, use a high quality lipstick and apply it three shades darker than your natural lip shade. If you’re into the whole nude look, then use a nude lipstick but make sure you use a high quality one as well. The nude lipstick will help give your natural lips the illusion of depth, while the high quality lipstick will help ward off water droplets and keep your lips from drying out.
For your eye makeup, the trick is to build up your eye makeup before applying the eye makeup. For natural glam makeup, you can start by using a thin eye shadow brush and taking a darker shade of the eye makeup colour. Next, use a pink liquid eye shadow and brush it on heavily. Then take a brown highlight colour and apply it to the inner part of the eye, where the light is hitting. This will give your eyes an intense colour effect, perfect for the natural glam makeup trend.
If you want to try something different and more feminine, why not go for nude lips? These days there are many colours to choose from such as pale pink to even darker colours. If you have pale skin tone, then why not opt for a pale pink lipstick? Alternatively, if you have a little black skin and prefer your lips to be black, then why not choose a nude lipstick such as plum?
One trend that is returning is the feathered brows. For this natural glam makeup look, use a feathered brow gel and fill them using a brown or black pencil. Feather the edges of your brows to give them a shape and a soft touch. This is a trend that can be worn all year round so you do not need to put it on only during the summer months!
