We can’t get enough of winged eyeliner and bright, peppy pouts, but sometimes going au naturel can make you stand out the most. There’s nothing more attractive than natural beauty with fresh, dewy skin.
But thanks to hectic schedules, lack of sleep and PMS of course, it’s hard to have clear, gorgeous skin at all times. But it sure is easy to fake it! We tell you how to get the no makeup look with your makeup in a few simple steps.
For your face to look fresh, it’s important to cleanse and exfoliate your skin before putting on your makeup. Using an oil-free moisturizer like Neutrogena Oil-Free Moisture with SPF is an absolute must so that your makeup goes on well. There’s nothing beautiful about dry, flaky skin.
If you are blessed with clear skin, then a good tinted moisturiser like Clinique Moisture Surge Tinted Moisturizer is all you need to even out your skin tone. For blemishes and extra coverage, us a liquid foundation like NARS Sheer Foundation for a dewy glow. Using your fingers to blend, will help give it a more natural finish.Try and skip the concealer as much as you can, since you want to look natural and not too made up. Apply translucent powder on top of you t-zone so oiliness doesn’t ruin your look.
For a healthy, rosy glow, use a cream blush or a cheek stain like Benetint by Benefit. Apply a few dots on the apples of your cheeks and blend well towards the temple.
For a natural look, it could be a good idea to skip heavy eyeliner. If you must line your eyes then do so with a thin line and with a brown or grey pencil instead of black. Next, take a highlighter or some white eye shadow and dab some onto the inner corner of your eyes which will instantly make you look more awake and fresh. Generous amounts of volumizing mascara like Lancome Hypnose Mascara on your lashes is necessary to open up your peepers and really make them pop.
Exfoliate your lips using a toothbrush and warm water to rub away dead skin and prevent chapped lips. Forget about lip liner and bright lipsticks, your fresh-faced skin is all the drama you need. Instead, use a tinted lip gloss for a small hint of colour and plenty of shine like MAC Tinted Lip Glass, which will definitely give you a plumper, yummy-looking pucker!
It’s time to get selfie-ready, you natural beauty!
