Natural Makeup Tutorial
You'd think a natural look would be easy to do because we think minimal but it's one of the harder looks to pull off. Here's a few tips to get this look:
Step 1 Customize the base you already use.
One easy way to tone down the caked on feeling of a base is to add a teaspoon of moisturizer to it. This will thin it out and make it look dewy and glowing instead of thick and heavy.
Step 2 If you are going to use a concealer, apply it by looking in the mirror at your eyes not what you want to cover up. Most people use too much concealer because they are focusing in on the perceived imperfection. Use your periphery vision to apply the concealer.
Step 3 Makeup can be used in any way you wish so ignore the label. Bronzer is a great substitute for eyeshadow. Brush a little over your eyelids for a defining natural effect.
Step 4 Never throw away your old mascara. Use it to color your eyebrows. Brush a light coat over them.
Step 5 To achieve a natural look to eyelashes, brush the mascara on as normal. Then put some makeup remover on a couple cotton balls or use a makeup wipe. Close your eyes and lightly pinch the lashes with the cotton balls or wipes to remove some of the mascara. This will give a soft natural look.
Step 6 To give your cheeks a little color, apply blush as you normally would. Then use your foundation brush and go over the same area to tone down the color. This gives a softer finish.
Step 7 Do not us your bronzer to give yourself a fake tan. Brush the bronzer around the outside of your face. Then brush along your cheek bone from the top of your ear to the corner of your lip without actually touching it. This gives definition and a natural glow.
Step 8 To give your lips a bit of color, take your favorite lipstick. Dampen a clean small makeup brush with water. Brush the damp brush over your lipstick and apply to your lips. This gives a diluted color more like a lip stain than lipstick.
