How to Achieve a Natural Beauty Makeup Look in 10 Easy Steps

Founder & Director of The Makeup Artist Guild Asia Pacific Melanie Burnicle, tells us how easy it is to achieve the no makeup makeup look.

Skin Prep is key to achieving a natural looking makeup look. If you can get your skin looking its best, you generally will only need a minimal amount of makeup.

Check out Melanie’s ten easy steps on how to get that natural glow:

  • Dye your eyebrows with 1000 Hour. Even though I have blonde hair, I still use the dark brown as I like a strong brow. And don’t worry, even when you get it on your skin, it’s easy to remove.
  • N Lotion by dermaviduals is a game changer. Apply a couple of pumps to your hands, massage it into your face and see the difference.
  • Then apply a moisturiser, as I want the skin to have the ultimate glow for a natural beauty look, I would try Aspect Phytostat 9 or Be quenched by ESK.
  • Using a beautiful sheer liquid foundation take a brush, such as the Real Techniques Setting Brush to buff in the foundation. Remember, you still want to see skin through the foundation, and you want it to glow. Why such a small brush you might asl? You won’t use or waste excess product and you can control where the foundation needs to go. My go to’s are Chanel Vita Lumiere Aqua Foundation or La Mav BB cream depending on your budget and skin tone.
how to correctly apply concealer under the eyes
Conceal only where needed and very minimally. If you are using a cream or liquid concealer, place it on the back of your hand so it starts to warm up to body temperature (even more important in the colder months), this will make the dense concealer more pliable when working under the eyes and on any areas that need it. My go to here is MAC or Kryolan – these are well tested and never leave my kit.
  • Stain the cheeks and lips with a flush of colour. Benefit cheek and lip stain is one of my faves. You could use the rose (pinky/red shade) or cha-cha (peach shade) tint depending on your skin tone and finish with lanolips for a glossy effect.
  • Try MAC Invisible Powder; it’s super fine, and I actually like to apply it using the Real Techniques Eyeshadow Brush Powder only where you need to. Mainly under the eye, where you have concealed and maybe your T Zone, dependant on your skin. Again, the small brush will ensure not to over powder.
  • Dust a soft peach shadow from the Revolution Peanut Butter Cup palette. Shades smooth, chunk, delish, pieces, would all work dependant on your skin tone.
  • Set your brows with 1000 Hour brow mascara clear or coloured to suit your skin tone.
  • Finish with a beautiful lashing of mascara. My favourite at the moment is Loreal Telescopic, its fabulous for this look as it defines the lashes and lengthens them with the most perfect wand.
