The natural makeup trend is here to stay. It’s all about embracing your beauty with minimal products that still give you an elegant and polished appearance. This look is great for every day because it’s light and fresh, yet still allows you to enhance your best features. You can achieve this look with a few easy steps and the right products that blend into your skin seamlessly.
The first step is to prep your skin. Make sure to cleanse, tone and moisturize your face. Then, apply a radiance primer such as the Estee Lauder – The Illuminator Radiant Perfecting Primer. This will create an ultra smooth canvas and it will help your foundation glide on like a dream.
Next, you want to choose a lightweight foundation or tinted moisturizer. I recommend a formula that is lightweight and has medium coverage. A good tip is to use a damp makeup sponge or beauty blender, this will ensure that the product is blended evenly. Avoid powders, as they can settle into fine lines and texture on the skin.
When it comes to choosing a shade, choose one that is close to your natural skin tone. You can also opt for a liquid foundation or BB/CC cream, as this will offer a more natural finish than a powder formula.
If you have a few blemishes or dark circles to cover, use concealer sparingly. The goal is to cover the imperfections without making it look like you’re wearing makeup at all. I prefer to use a creamy concealer, as it blends in much better than a powder.
For your eyes, you can either opt for an eyeshadow or a highlighter. If you want to do an eyeshadow, a shimmery neutral shade is the way to go. Avoid anything too glittery or frosty, as this will give you a more dramatic look. I love to use the LAWLESS Mini The Little One Eyeshadow Palette in Rose Gold, as it has a variety of matte and shimmery shades that are perfect for this look.
A highlighter is another great option, and I suggest using a highlighter that is a few shades lighter than your skin tone. This will help your skin glow and look more youthful.
The last step is to add a little bit of mascara and your favorite lip product. A natural lipstick or tinted lip balm is a great choice. I recommend a color that is very close to your natural lip color, and if you want to add a pop of color, a soft pink or coral shade works well.
To finish off the look, you can add some eyeliner, but I would recommend staying away from a black or blue eyeliner. Instead, you could try a nude eyeliner around the waterlines to brighten up your look and add more definition to the eye area.
The key to a natural look is to keep it simple and blend everything together. The goal is to still have a pretty, put-together look that enhances your natural beauty and makes you feel confident in your own skin.
