How to make your makeup look natural? Top 10 tips for getting gorgeous ‘no makeup’ makeup look
The biggest makeup trend at the moment is the no makeup makeup look. This is the look that gives you flawless, natural appearance, almost as though you had no makeup on at all. It’s a look that is actually always in style and it works for both day wear and in the evening. So, let your natural beauty shine through and take a look at these ten tips on how to achieve the prefect no makeup makeup look:
1. Moisturize first
The trick to the good no makeup makeup look is, obviously, keeping everything looking natural and matching any makeup to the natural tones of your skin. Begin by applying some oil-free moisturizer. This will hydrate your skin and provide an easy, slip-on base for your make up.
2. Apply concealer
If you have any darkness around your eyes, or skin blemishes, then apply concealer to disguise them. Remember that to cover blemishes, you need to use concealer that is the opposite of the color that you are disguising. So for purple dark circles, use slightly orange shaded concealer and for red marks, use a greenish tone.
3. Apply foundation
Next, apply foundation, but use it sparingly. Try and find a foundation that matches your natural skin almost exactly. A powder foundation is the best; be sure to blend in well and don’t forget to go under your jaw line, you want this to look seamless.
4. Apply some bronzer
For a tanned, summery no makeup makeup look, apply some bronzer. Pay especial attention to cheekbones and T-Zone, as this is where you would naturally tan. Be aware though of your natural skin tone, as a deep tan on a fair skinned person wouldn’t look right.
5. Add a touch blush
Another good tip for achieving flawless and fresh no makeup makeup look is to add a touch of blush to the apples of your cheeks. Just a little touch of blush can bring a rosy glow to your cheeks without losing the ‘n0 makeup’ effect. Be sure to blend in well though, and don’t overdo it, it’s just a hint of color that you are looking for.
6. Curl lashes
Curl lashes for that wide awake no makeup makeup look, but don’t apply heavy mascara or it won’t look natural at all. When you do apply mascara, make sure that there are no clumps and it doesn’t look too false against the rest of your natural look.
7. Neaten up eyebrows
Neat and tidy brows are a must when it comes to natural and beautiful no makeup makeup look, but do not pencil them in. Brush your eyebrows and pluck any wayward strands, but leave the color to nature. If they need thickening up, then use a powder that is the same color, as your hair.
8. Exfoliate and moisturize for kissable lips
For your lips, a gloss or bright lipstick is out for this natural, no makeup makeup look. Exfoliate your lips and use a tinted balm instead and it will look more in keeping with the natural look. Try a shade that is just one tone brighter, than your natural lip color; that usually looks good.
9. Give your face a spritz with (rose) water
To further blend your no makeup makeup look and keep it looking fresh and natural, give it a final spritz with a hydrating spray, you can use rose water for it or, simply, water. This will help to tone down the makeup and help to make it look more natural.
10. Remember sunscreen in the summer
And a final bonus tip. If you are going for the natural no makeup makeup look in the summer, then remember that you are going to be wearing less makeup, so your skin will be more susceptible to damage from the sun. If you are going to be outdoors all day, then start with sunscreen, instead of the moisturizer.
