7 Tips for Natural Looking Makeup
Posted on 23 September
Not all of us are blessed with beautiful, flawless skin. To look more presentable, many of us resort to the use of cosmetics to hide skin imperfections. But of course it is important that we do not go overboard as it will only emphasize what we’re trying to hide. The no-makeup look became popular as it gives the illusion of a perfect and flawless skin without appearing too flashy. We’ve gathered seven makeup tips to help you achieve that makeup-free look with ease.
Step 1: Conceal
The first thing that you need to do to achieve the no-makeup look is to hide the dark circles around your eyes. After that you can apply concealer to areas or spots that you need concealed like blemishes, pimples or fine lines. Usually, a creamy formula works perfectly in concealing under eye circles and blemishes. Whatever type of concealing cosmetics you choose, make sure it matches your skin tone. Apply a thin layer, in little stripes using a pointed concealer brush and use your ring finger to lightly blend it in.
Step 2: Base It Right
If you are in a hurry, use a foundation stick to evenly and quickly set a makeup base. Use the foundation stick like a giant marker and draw thick lines down your cheekbones, at the sides of your nose and above your brows. Blend it with your fingers to truly get that natural look. If you want an even lighter coverage, apply moisturizer on your hands before blending and you’ll achieve a sheer and dewy finish.
Step 3: Dewy Finish
For dewy, natural looking makeup you should try mixing an almond size of BB cream with a tiny bit of illuminating cream. Apply the mixture on your face and blend well. This natural looking makeup tip will make your skin glow from within.
Step 4: Take A Second Look
To see if you have covered what needs to be hidden, carefully look at your face again preferably in a natural light setting. Apply an extra layer of concealer to areas or spots with blemishes poking through. You can dab some setting powder over the concealed areas to absorb oil so your concealer won’t slide off at noon.
Step 5: Put Some Color
For that natural look, skip the shading and contouring part and just use a cream blush for a softer cheek color. Get the flushed, glow-from-within cheek color by applying blush to the apples of your cheeks. Use your fingers to blend the color upwards to your temples. Apply a little bit at first and just build the color intensity until you reach your desired hue. If you accidentally put too much, just apply foundation on top of the blush. There are different brands of cosmetics that offer different kinds of cheek color. If you’re more familiar with using powder-based blush or even mineral make-up, go ahead. The important thing is you go easy on the color intensity.
