Heavy makeup is fast becoming outdated. The trend in makeup now is all about looking natural. find out how you can achieve this flawless look and make it look like you made little or no effort!.
STEP 1: Start by prepping your skin with an oil-free moisturizer. This will give a bit of slip so your makeup goes on smoother.
STEP 2: For those who are blessed with issue-free skin, apply a tinted moisturizer (try Bobby Brown Extra SPF25 Tinted Moisturizing Balm) to even out your skin tone. If you need more coverage, use a liquid foundation with a dewy finish like NARS sheer glow foundation.
STEP 3: Apply your foundation or tinted moisturizer with a sponge like beauty blender in a circular motion. Pay extra attention to the edges to make sure there are no visible lines. Remember, real skin is never matte so finish by only powdering areas that get oily throughout the day.
STEP 4: To get the most natural healthy glow, opt for a cream blush. Using your fingers, apply three dots of MAC creme blend blush on the apples of your cheeks and blend towards the temples.
STEP 5: Spritz your face with a facial mist like MAC fix+ to tone down any cakiness and to keep your skin looking dewy and fresh.
STEP 1 : Natural eyebrows never look penciled in. So ditch your eyebrow pencil and use a powder that matches your hair colour instead. Apply with an angled brush and blend with a clean mascara wand or brow brush to soften the look.
STEP 2: Skip eyeliner and really work the mascara wand into the root of your lashes to make them appear fuller. If you must wear eyeliner, keep the line thin and stick to softer colours like brown or gray. Alternatively, try lining the inner rims of your eyes with a cake eyeliner like Laura Mercier eyeliner. To do this, lift up your eyelid gently and push the eyeliner into the rim of your lids with a flat brush.
STEP 3: Apply one to two coats of mascara and run a lash comb through your lashes to get rid of clumps. Don’t have one handy? Swiping your lashes gently with your fingers works just as well.
STEP 4: If you want more definition, add a pair of thin, long fake lashes. The trick is to use the right glue and wait until the glue turns tacky before you apply.
STEP 1: Exfoliate your lips with an old toothbrush and vaseline to get rid of nasty dead skin
STEP 2: Forget lip liner. Instead use a tinted lip balm like Bobby Brown tinted lip balm for a subtle pop of color and shine.
