If you’re looking to go a little bit lighter in the makeup department, a natural look might be perfect for you. It’s all about enhancing your natural beauty and blending everything together so that you look like “you” – but better!
This look may seem complicated and hard to accomplish, but trust us – it’s easier than you think. All you need is a few light-duty makeup products and a good skincare routine. After cleansing, toning and moisturizing your skin twice a day, start by applying a tinted moisturizer or BB cream to even out your complexion. This will also help your foundation last longer without looking cakey or unnatural.
Next, add a touch of color with a blush or bronzer that is closest to your skin tone. You can opt for powder or a creme blush, but be sure to use a light hand and avoid going overboard – a little goes a long way with this look! A little bronzer on your nose and cheekbones will give you a lovely glow, while blush can help make your face appear more youthful.
A quick sweep of concealer (if needed) will cover any blemishes or dark circles, but be sure to use a light touch. If you have very dark under eye circles, try using a technique called the upside down triangle trick to brighten them up.
Finish off your eyes with a quick swipe of a shimmery highlighter. Just apply a tiny bit to the tops of your cheekbones, down the bridge of your nose and above your cupid’s bow.
For a natural-looking lip, choose a nude or soft pink shade. Try not to go for any red or raspberry hues – these colors might look too bold against your skin tone. Girls with naturally full brows can leave this step out completely, but if you have sparse areas or gaps in your brows, be sure to fill them in using a brow pencil that is close to your natural color and has a similar texture to your hair.
Lastly, you can add a little extra glow by dusting a small amount of a translucent powder over your entire face to set your makeup and keep it from creasing. Be sure to always blend your makeup after each application – this is the key to a natural-looking, flawless finish!
