Do you love wearing makeup, but would prefer to have a bit more of a natural look? Instead of going all out and heavy on the makeup products, there are some great natural makeup ideas that will leave you looking naturally flawless. These ideas are simple and will certainly come in handy for your daily daytime makeup routine.
Choose a Powder Foundation
Instead of using a heavy liquid or cream foundation, consider using a powder foundation for your natural look. Start by moisturizing your face before applying your foundation. You’ll want to add a primer to the skin as well. The primer may help to reduce the appearance of different imperfections, such as acne scars or even enlarged pores.
Some powder foundations come with a brush. If the one you’ve purchase didn’t come with a brush, choose a foundation brush of your choice and carefully dab it into the powder foundation. Start with less because you can gradually add more as you go. You may only need one layer of powder foundation to cover any discoloration or spots that you’re trying to conceal, but if you need additional coverage, you can add an extra layer.
Use a Peach-Colored Blush
Dark pink blush may look good sometimes, but it doesn’t give off the most natural look. Instead of using shades of pink, go for a light peach-colored blush that will give you a hint of color in the most natural way possible. When applying the blush, start at the apples of the cheeks and begin blending downward in a gentle circular motion. If the blush is fairly light, you can go over it one more time to add a bit more color to the face.
Stick With a Nude Lip
If you’re going for a completely natural look, you’ll want to avoid those dark-colored lipsticks, including shades of hot pink, red, and purple. Those fashion colors are trendy, but they don’t give off the natural look you’re aiming for. If you’d like to achieve a flawless nude lip, start by preparing your lips for the application. Use a lip scrub to get rid of any dead skin that might be on your lips.
Once your lips are smooth and free of any dead skin, apply a nude lip liner around the edges of your lips as a base. After you’ve drawn the liner around the edges of your lips, fill in the lips with a matte nude lipstick. The type of nude lipstick you decide to purchase will vary based on your complexion because what’s nude for one person may not be so nude for another person.
If you don’t want to wear lipstick or lip liner, you can achieve a flawless lip by applying a tinted lip balm. Make sure you still take the time to use the lip scrub on your lips prior to applying the tinted lip balm so that the application goes smoothly.
These are some of the natural makeup ideas you should try. If you want to look stunning without overdoing it in the makeup department, these simple tips could help you achieve the perfect natural look.
