Makeup trends come and go, but there’s one thing that’ll stay relevant no matter what – the natural look. Some of you may already rock glowy skin, thick lashes and that cute blush that just makes a guy’s heart melt, but apart from those lucky few, we, ladies, need to learn how to do a few makeup tricks to enhance what we already have. That’s the best thing about natural makeup – you don’t really need to go all the way creating your face from scratch, just figure out your strongest points and make them truly stand out! The ‘no-makeup’ makeup may sound like a piece of cake, but it is often harder to achieve this look than anything else. That’s why we’ve gathered a few essential tips that will help you create a perfect-looking natural makeup. It’s as easy as ABC!
Prep your skin
Creating any kind of makeup starts with a considerable amount of prep. Wash your face, clean and moisturize your skin, use some tonic, and don’t forget about that beauty sleep that helps your skin regenerate. Skin cells are mostly made of water, so make sure you drink enough of it – without water your skin will look and feel dry!
Natural makeup requires your skin to look as effortless as possible. You should skip the heavy base and use some BB cream or a tinted moisturizer to even out your skin tone. Try ditching your makeup brush arsenal and apply makeup with a sponge or just your fingers. But if you do want to apply foundation, use a fluffy brush and lightly swirl the foundation onto your skin.
Fake your natural blush
So many things can go wrong with blush, but once you figure out your skin tone and the ideal blush that complements it naturally, you’re all set. As a rule fair skin tones go well with powder pinks, medium skin benefits from peachy pinks, and brownish pinks complement darker skin tones very well. Make sure you apply blush on the right spots – chin, forehead, cheeks. Avoid shimmery and sparkly makeup for a more natural look.
