Natural Makeup Look â Makeup Tips
- Â· Skincare is essential - Start with good, healthy, natural skincare â makeup will go on much smoother and evenly with a good base. Use a skincare set that is meant for your particular skin type and includes a cleanser, toner and moisturizer and be sure to use each of them every morning and every evening. You'll notice that your skin starts to get cleaner, smoother, and softer, more even in texture with minimal lines and wrinkles.
- Â· Foundation Primer â Use a natural foundation primer that helps foundation to go on more evenly and sets your foundation and helps to create that artist's canvas you're looking for. Use a small amount and apply evenly over entire face, even eyes and lips and allow the primer to absorb completely before continuing with the rest of the makeup look.
- Â· Apply Foundation â Use the ring and center finger to apply foundation or use a makeup sponge. Apply a thin layer evenly until a smooth finish is all over the face including eyes and lips.
- Â· Eyebrow Pencil â Apply a light eyebrow pencil that matches the color of the brow making sure that the brow lifts and accentuates the eyes.
- Â· Eyeliner â Add a dark brown or black colored eyeliner on the skin just above the eyelashes on the eyelid using the edge of the palm of the hand to steady the hand as you apply the eyeliner in a thin even line.
- Â· Eye shadow â Apply a thin, light layer of eye shadow color in a shade that is similar to the skin tone to obtain a natural makeup look and apply it over the lower eyelid area. Blend well with an eye shadow brush so that no lines are visible that would show where the eye shadow starts or ends to get a natural makeup look that enhances the eye.
- Â· Curl the Eyelashes â Use an eyelash curler on the upper eye lashes to make them curl as much as possible after mascara is later applied.
- Â· Mascara â Add a light coat of mascara just enough to coat and lengthen the eyelashes.
- Â· Natural blush â Use a natural cream blush in a color that is one shade darker than your skin tone. Add the blush to the apple of the eye (just under center of pupil and across from the bridge of the nose). Blend gently so that no start or finish areas are shown.
- Â· Lip liner â Add a natural and light lip liner in a shade closest to the natural color of your lips.
- Â· Lip Gloss â For a natural makeup look, add a light color of lip gloss to the entire lip and purse lips so that the gloss is well blended over entire lip.
- Â· Finishing Powder â Always add a light coat of a finishing powder in a shade most similar to the foundation you applied or one shade darker and apply this powder all over the entire face using a high quality, natural powder brush. This finishing powder step will ensure that your makeup will last all day without running, smearing or wearing off for a natural makeup look.
