In theory, creating a natural makeup look should be easier than going full glam. But often the skin is left looking cakey and over the top, and therefore not natural. For the best natural makeup look, follow these tips and trick below.
One way to get fresh, glowing, natural looking skin for a base is to add a little bit of moisturiser to a foundation. This will dial down the coverage and give the skin a dewy, more natural finish. To give a super glowing look to the skin, add a drop of a liquid illuminator to the foundation – it will instantly leave the skin with that ‘post facial’ freshness and glow.
Concealing any blemishes on the skin sounds like an obvious fix to creating a flawless, natural makeup look. However, overdoing the concealing can leave the skin looking cakey, and the undereye ashy. When applying concealer, avoid focusing on all flaws, and stick to the few that are most noticeable. By eliminating the big issues, the face will instantly be lifted, while leaving the natural tone to the skin.
If using a powder on the face, always opt for a light, mineral based product. By using a light product, the makeup won’t cake. Always apply the powder product with a brush or sponge to create a non-streaky finish, which will create a flawless look to the skin.
Blush is an essential in creating a no makeup look, as naturally most skin has pink tones in the face. While blush is key, it is important to not overdo the face with colour. Choose subtle pink, nude or peach tones, and apply to where the cheek usually shows pink pigment for a completely natural flushed cheek look.
When creating a natural makeup look, less is more. Using bronzer correctly to slightly contour the face, rather than darkening the skin will help to create a natural glowing face. Apply bronzer around the face and on the cheekbone for optimum natural face definition while still creating a tanned, sun-based glow.
When creating a natural eye makeup look, stick to neutral, natural colours such as browns, golds, pinks and peaches. Use a colour 2 shades darker than the skin tone and apply directly on the eyelid without adding depth and definition. By keeping the eye makeup simple, a natural highlight will be created around the eyes, without the appearance of heavy makeup.
For a simple, no makeup lip look, always opt for nude, pink, peach or sand tones. This will draw attention to the lips, without using heavy makeup or unnatural pigments that will remove the illusion of no makeup. For an even simpler look, simply add a clear, nude or pink gloss over the lips.
For light lashes, a thin layer of mascara is all that are needed to create a natural makeup look. The thin layer of mascara will still make the eye stand out without adding an unnatural volume to the lashes. For darker, fuller lashes, mascara may be skipped entirely.
