Natural, Fresh Makeup | Beginners Tutorial

 
Hi everyone! I took some time off last week to visit my parents and I packed a very small makeup bag for my visit. I pretty much wore the same look everyday; natural luminous base, defined eyes & brows (most days without eye shadow, just liner and mascara), a hint of pink blush and a natural pink lip. The look I wore was very similar to a natural, fresh look I posted recently on my YouTube channel. Check out the tutorial below!

5 Steps to a No-Makeup Look

 

Even if you love your lippie and can’t live without mascara, it’s always refreshing to sport a natural no-makeup look from time to time. This obviously shouldn’t be taken literally. It’s all about mastering the art of ‘looking’ like you have no makeup on! As Calvin Klein once said, “The best thing is to look natural, but it takes makeup to look natural.” Here’s how you can achieve a soft, no-makeup look in 5 easy steps –

5 Steps to a No-Makeup Look

 

 

Step 1 : Correct and even out your skin tone

Use a light coverage BB cream or foundation for sheer coverage and a natural finish. The idea is to even out your skin and not mask it under a heavy coverage product. Use a concealer to spot correct areas that need extra coverage such as the under eyes, sun spots and blemishes. Use a light powder to set the base, but remember to use a very light hand to avoid a thick powdery finish.

 

Step 2 : Tightline your eyes using a black or brown liner

Tightlining simply means lining the top and bottom inner rims of the eyes with liner, staying as close to the lash line as possible. Black can look a little harsh especially on gals with lighter/fairer skin and lighter eyes so I suggest using a brown liner for this step. Apply the liner into the roots of lashes to give them natural volume and instantly open up your eyes.

Sunkissed Neutral Makeup Look

 

Hey everyone!

For Day 27 of the September Challenge, I’ve done a soft sunkissed neutral look. I think this kind of look is flattering on everyone and works for just any occasion. I used bronze tones to achieve a nice warm glow on the skin and the eyes. I defined the eyes well with black liner and to finish the look, I used a dusty peachy brown gloss.

What do think of this look? Let me know your comments below!
