Who doesn't want to look great, naturally? Obviously, the best natural look is one with no make up at all. That's a difficult feat for most who like to wear some makeup to accentuate our best features to bring out the desired look. Here are 3 easy tips for getting that natural look working best for you.
1 - Too Much Makeup
The best advise for a natural look is to avoid wearing too much makeup, which is obviously not the goal of going for a natural look. Makeup is meant to enhance your features, not hide them. Wearing too much makeup can make your skin look cakey and completely different, unless that’s your goal for some other self-serving reason. Here are some things to keep in mind when applying makeup for attaining that natural look:
Eyeliner: dark, thick eyeliner will almost always make you look “overdone”. Though it may be perfect for a flamboyant Saturday night, it doesn’t accomplish the natural look. Go easy and lightly.
Mascara: most mascaras have a tendency to clump, which forces your lashes to come together, leaving large gaps. That look Is not the traditionally desired outcome. Applying mascara lightly will avoid this issue and enhance your lashes in the most natural way.
Foundation: Most importantly, work with a foundation that matches your skin tone. As a rule, a little goes a long way, so start applying lightly, then add more as desired. The goal of foundation is to create a smooth, even tone. Also, select a brush that is appropriate for the foundation you are using. Some brushes work best with a liquid foundation, while others are more suited to pressed powder. Choose the right tool for the corresponding product.
Powder: The same holds true for powder - not too much. Powder has a tendency to sit on top rather than blend into your face, so be sure to blend your makeup to avoid obvious You’ll become a pro with practice.
2 - Lips
For the natural look, your best bet is to stick with neutral colors. Sometimes a clear gloss is perfect to keep it natural and add that little bit of spunk to make your lips “pop”. You can even apply a tinted lip balm/treatment (try OVERNIGHT REPLENSIHING LIP MASK by Young Ever After – you will be amazed with the result)!
3 - Appropriate Makeup
Wear makeup that is appropriate for the occasion. If you are going to the beach you shouldn't wear the same or as much makeup as you would if you were going out for an evening of dancing. Makes sense, right? Keep in mind, when you’re in daylight your makeup should be lighter than when you are planning to go out for the evening. Less is much better when aiming for that natural look.
