A natural look is one, which uses the right colors that go well with your skin tone. There is nothing as worse as a caked-on makeup face. To avoid such a look, you can follow the tips that are mentioned below, which gives a fresh and flawless radiance without using excess of make-up products. Once you get a hang of it, you can apply the makeup quickly and easily.
Steps to Achieve a Natural Look
Prepare Your Skin
A great skin is absolutely necessary for a natural look. Ensure that you wash your face at night and remove any left over make-up with the makeup remover and do not forget to moisturize. Make sure that the moisturizer suits your skin, particularly if it’s dry, oily or sensitive. The next step is to give a base for the concealer or foundation to hold onto the makeup primer.
Even Out Your Skin Tone
This depends on the cover up your skin needs. If you have a great skin, pick a tinted moisturizer or you can just conceal red spots and discoloration by slightly patting the concealer in places where it is required. In case you need to cover up more portion of your skin then apply a layer of foundation and blend it evenly. You can either use a sponge or the tip of your fingers to spread the foundation uniformly. Pigment-rich concealer can be used for deep under eye circles or visible breakouts. You must avoid using too much concealer, as it will accentuate the problem areas. It is better to use the concealer in a yellow tone as it mutes the imperfections and gives a natural look.
You can take the natural makeup look to the next level with the help of the glow. The secret is highlighting and shimmer. The liquid shimmer resembles a nail polish and you can light up your face with it by slightly dabbing it on your brow bone, along the corners of the eyes and on cheekbones to give sheen to your skin.
Enhance the Eyelashes
Defined lashes are very important even for a natural or no make-up look. There is a very fine line between ‘just got out of the bed’ and ‘bedroom eyes’ look and this can be achieved with the help of an eyelash curler and mascara. However, eye shadow and eyeliner must be avoided to achieve this understated look.
Warm Cheek Color
To give a subtle and natural flush, you can use cream blushes in warm pinks and peaches. Apply the pink on the cheekbones with the tip of your fingers and blend it in circles. This will highlight your cheekbones.
Define Your Lips
To get an attractive hue that also lasts long, select a shade that complements your lips. You can press the color on your lips with the help of your fingertips rather than directly applying it from the tube. In case you have an oily skin or there are chances of your makeup being smudged during the day, then you can dust it with powder. You can skip this step, if your skin is too dry.
