Fresh Natural Makeup & Glowing Skin Tutorial
These days we girls prefer the more natural make-up look. If you are wondering how to achieve this makeup look, then read this article to find out how you can pull off the no-makeup makeup look throughout the day. It is really important to use the right make-up tools along with good quality make up products for the colors to pop out. If you are a make-up newbie then just lay your hands on a beauty blender, a flat-top kabuki brush or a buffing brush, a fluffy eyeshadow brush and an angular brush and you are good to go.
Moisturize your face
- You must use a moisturizer as the first thing to do, before starting your make-up. Even if you have oily skin, you must apply a water-based moisturizer to moisturize your skin. It will help your primer to glide on smoothly.
Apply a primer
- After applying a moisturizer you must apply a primer. A primer acts as a thin barrier between your skin and your make up and prevents your open pores from getting clogged. Apply a pore minimizing primer if you have a lot of open pores, and always work in sections. You can either use your fingertips or a flat foundation brush to make sure that your primer glides on smoothly.
Use a foundation
- Foundation is one of the most important parts of your base makeup. Take a dollop of your favorite foundation on the back of your hand and use a buffing brush to buff it in. Alternatively, you can also use a beauty blender to blend it in. Make sure that you use a foundation that is an exact match to your natural skin tone to get an even finish.
Use a concealer
- Choose a concealer that matches your skin tone. Apply it on your under-eye areas, brow bones, cupid’s bow, bridge of your nose, basically, on all the high points of your face. Then blend it out with a beauty blender or a concealer brush. Make sure you blend everything properly for a more natural finish. You can also use a concealer that is at least 2 shades lighter than your skin tone on top of this concealer for brightening up your under-eye area.
Now its time to contour your face
- After applying the concealer, your face will look flat and brightened up. If you want to add more depth and definition to your flat face, then use a cream contour stick or just use a foundation that is darker than your natural skin tone. Apply it on your cheekbones, sides of your nose, on your jawline and on top of your forehead. Blend it in with the help of a beauty blender to get a more youthful appearance. Make sure you blend in everything properly and there are no harsh lines visible.
Lock your base make-up
- After applying your base makeup, you need to seal it with loose powder if you don’t want it to crease fast. Take a loose powder that matches your undertone or go in with your favorite compact to do the job. Swirl a fluffy brush on your loose powder or compact, gently tap it to get rid of the excess and then apply it all over your face and neck to set your base. If you have fine lines around your eyes, then use the baking technique, in which you have to apply a lot of loose powder on your under-eye area and leave it on until you finish your make-up.
Keep your makeup intact with a makeup fixing spray
- If you have to wear your make up throughout the day then go ahead and spritz on some makeup spray right after completing your base makeup. This step ensures that your skin does not look dried out or flaky at all. Blend it in with a beauty blender if you want to give your skin a smoother texture.
Define your eyebrows
- It is a very important step if you want to look your best. Take an eyebrow pomade and an angular brush to fill in your sparse eyebrows. If you have bald spots on your eyebrows then use an eyebrow pencil to fill in the bald spots and smudge it in to remove any visible harsh lines.
Let your eyes do the talk
- If you are opting for a neutral, easy-breezy no-makeup makeup look then you need not go overboard with your eyes. Just take your contour stick and apply it only as much as it’s required to redefine the crease of your eyes. Blend it in with a fluffy brush, top it up with a coat of loose powder, and blend it all in. You can also add a pop of color with a nude or light beige or golden eyeshadow in the inner corner of your eyes if you want to. Next up, take a generous amount of mascara on your spoolie and wiggle it through your upper and lower eyelashes.
Apply a highlighter
- Take a fan brush and apply it on the high points of your face like your cheekbones, bridge of your nose and chin. Apply a shimmery highlighter if you have clear skin, but if you have tiny zits and bumps on your skin then refrain from applying a shimmery highlighter.
Add a pop of color on your cheeks to amp up your glam game
- Take a fluffy brush and then take a little bit of pink or peachy blush on it. Gently tap off the excess pigment and then apply it on the apple of your cheeks for a more bubbly look.
Finish your makeup with a nude lipstick
- Take a neutral lip liner pencil. Use it to outline your lips and then fill it in with a nude lipstick. Choose a color that is closest to the natural shade of your lips, or just chose a light brown, mauve-pink or reddish shade that gets along with your skin tone.
