Doing your makeup in a natural way perfectly brings out the best of your features which mainly focuses on a few key areas such as eyes, lips, and skin. The best thing about this makeup look is, it needs very few products, a less amount of time and easy method and makeup application.
To achieve this look, you will need to follow these 6 steps we have listed below.
Make sure your skin is all clean and clear
The first and the foremost thing to know about natural makeup look is it doesn’t completely hide the imperfections or flaws present on your face, because the products that will be used are lesser and doesn’t do a perfect job in concealing them. Which is why it’s important to follow a proper skincare routine. Doing so will make sure your skin is free of all the dust, pollutants and bacteria which further can lead to your skin breaking out and many other skin problems. Scrubbing will help you to get rid of those stubborn blackheads and whiteheads. And in case of any redness or irritation, make sure to treat them first using soothing and hydrating products. You should also make sure your skin is free of all those pesky pimples in order to create a flawless makeup look.
Apply toner, moisturizer, sunblock, and primer
The next step is to apply these products on your face in this particular order only. It basically gives your makeup a very smooth and healthy base to be applied on. Toner acts as an agent that shrinks your pore size, moisturizer provides hydration and moisture to the face and gives your face a very healthy appearance, sunblock acts as a shield that protects your skin from harsh uv rays which hold the tendency to damage your skin in many different ways and the primer helps to give your makeup a very smooth and flawless finish and also makes sure your makeup lasts longer.
Opt for a foundation that provides light to medium coverage and definitely not the one with full coverage as we are trying to achieve a natural makeup look that should feel like your skin. Liquid foundations tend to work well in such cases as they have the most natural finish. You can also choose to add a few drops of illuminator to your foundation to give your face a glowy and dewy appearance. The application of the foundation is really important so make sure you blend it nicely especially around your hairline, jawline, and ears.
Apply a concealer and setting powder
In order to achieve a flawless makeup look, it’s quite obvious to apply a concealer. Just like your foundations make sure your concealer is of the same texture so that it can blend in very nicely and seamlessly. Here you can use two types of concealer, one is to hide the blemishes which should be of the same shade as that of your foundation and the other one is used to brighten your under-eye dark circles. After properly blending the product make sure to set it with a translucent powder so that it doesn’t get cracky and stays in place all the time.
Add color to your cheeks
Adding blush to your cheeks is a great way of creating youthful, healthy and glowing skin. Opt for a shade that perfectly complements your skin’s undertone and the color can vary from pale pink to mauve. Using a large fluffy brush, apply the blush to the apple of your cheeks and it would be great if you opt for a blush that is of the same texture as that of your foundation and concealer so that it blends on your skin very flawlessly.
Keeps your lips moisturized and natural
In order to achieve the perfect base for the application of a lip balm or lipstick, it’s important your lips don’t appear very dry and flaky. Exfoliate them using a scrubber, it will help you to get rid of the dead skin layer and all the flakiness. It will also help in bringing out your natural lip color which will give your makeup a very natural feel. Now you can apply the lip balm of your choice and let it sink in for a few minutes. Lips that are prepped up allows an easy and nice application of lipstick and lip gloss.
