Most of want to apply make-up; yet we want to look like we are not wearing any makeup. Ironical isn’t it? But that’s how we want it. We want to show the world that we are naturally this beautiful.
Come what may, you are going to see these no-makeup vibes for a long time to come. There are many professional makeup kits that are designed to give you that non-made-up, natural look. We are talking bare minimum here. It is more about the application than about the number of products you use. If you’re considering a makeup kit, this guide from getaircompressor is a good one.
Here are a few tips you can consider for achieving the natural no-make-up look:
Tip: Make use of a hydrating face mask before you start applying your foundation. This will give your skin that moisturized and supple look which will enhance its glow.
Tip #2: Use a primer to get a smooth base
It doesn’t matter what your skin type is, unless you fill-up the pores on your skin, there is no way you can make it look even-toned. While a thick foundation can help you achieve this, it will also give you that made-up look which you don’t want. A better alternative would be to apply an illuminating prime which will hydrate your skin and give you that glow from within.
Tip #3: Your imperfections make you look natural
You might be tempted to hide those freckles, marks, and imperfections by applying a full coverage foundation. But these are the things that make your skin look natural. If you need a natural look try and avoid these thick foundations. Use a tinted moisturizer that will hydrate your skin while allowing some of your natural imperfections to shine through. You can use a lightweight concealer if the blemishes are too ugly.
Tip #4: Go for creams instead of powders
Powders might work well on your skin; but they don’t blend and sink in the way creams do. If you are trying out a natural look, you might want to go for a cream bronzer instead of a powdered version. Use a damp sponge to blend it in after you are done applying your foundation. To make the look last longer, you can dab a bit of the powder bronzer and then lock it in with a setting spray.
Tip #5: Dewy look is the natural look
Adding a bit of dewiness can enhance your natural look while keeping the glow. Go for a creamy highlighter with a clear base. Make sure the texture blends in with the other cream products you have used on your face. It might look a bit like sweat, but it will add that much-needed natural dew to your skin.
