How to apply simple natural makeup: Every girl wants to look natural and beautiful at the same time. Here’s a step-by-step guide to help you achieve that simple natural look with makeup on.
Clean your face of any previous make-up
Put makeup remover or water on a cotton ball. Dab or rub the cotton ball in small circles to remove old makeup. Determine your skin type and cleanse, tone, and moisturize with suitable products twice daily.
If you have skin problems like spots/blackheads, exfoliate your skin.
Moisturize your face
Using a small dab the size of a pea, gently rub in an unscented, oil-free lotion. Scented lotions can aggravate your skin and cause breakouts or an allergic reaction, and oily lotions will encourage acne.
For a more natural look, instead of using foundation, use a tinted moisturizer. Tinted moisturizers blend in while evening out your skin tone and commonly contain SPF. Those lucky girls with clearer skin will look best using tinted moisturizer.
Apply concealer to any blemishes and around your eyes
Applying your concealer before foundation helps keep the foundation to a minimal amount. make sure this is the exact same color as your skin. When you apply the concealer, do so directly on the spot and not around it. This is to avoid a halo effect and emphasis of the spot. Optionally set with beige powder.
Be careful not to overdo it on the concealer; you only need enough to cover the spot.
Apply a powder foundation on the oilier parts of your face
Before you start to apply your natural makeup , it’s best to determine whether or not you’re using the right foundation color. Get in natural light and test the foundation to make sure it’s the right color for your skin. Dab a few marks on your cheek and angle your face in different ways to see if the color matches.
Take your finger or a sponge dab in the foundation, and dab it on your face, blending it until it looks like your skin tone. Be sure to go underneath your jawline; if you stop at the edge of your face, there will be a clear line where the foundation ends, making it look like you’re wearing a mask.
You don’t need to apply foundation to your entire face when applying your makeup. Just put it on areas that don’t have a consistent color and blend it in.
If you have bags or discoloration under your eyes, make 3 dots on the line of the circles under your eyes. Blend it gently using your ring finger.
Some people wait until after they have applied makeup to their eyes to add bronzer or blush. Bronzer is a great way to give yourself a natural glow. Lightly brush bronzer all over your face (or just along your cheekbones and T-Zone for a natural suntan appearance). However, bronzer can look silly on people with pale skin if applied incorrectly. Practice at home with bronzer to see if it looks good on you before going out with it on. If you don’t like the way it looks, skip this step.
If you were not happy with bronzer, you can apply blush instead. Crème blush generally works better than powder because it gives you a dewy look and lasts longer. Using a champagne-tinted crème blush, rub a little on your ring finger and blend onto your cheekbones.
Note: we’d advise that you should not apply both blush and bronzer; choose one when applying your simple natural makeup.
