Everyone wants to look and feel beautiful. That’s why many people apply makeup before they leave the house. Spending more than 15 minutes on a simple makeup look is a waste of time, yet not everyone is lucky to wake up flawless.
Luckily, natural makeup is now completely fashionable! Simply by applying the right amount of high-quality products, you’ll achieve the natural “effortless” look you’ve been aiming for. That natural look can be achieved while hiding those minor imperfections such as pimple scars or dark circles around your eyes. Now you can have a comfortable, natural look in under 10 minutes!
1. Wash Your Face
Many individuals neglect this step. However, it is extremely crucial to wash your face before you apply any product to it. During the sleep, our face may get dirty or oily so by using a gentle facial cleanser, you’re removing the dirt and excessive oil, and preventing the blemishes. Besides that, you need to remove any makeup left on your face from the previous day or night, to prevent possible infection.
In case you are washing your face with water, make sure that the temperature is adequate. Hot water can damage your skin and dry out your face, while cold water is uncomfortable at best. Find the balance. Don’t forget to apply a light moisturizer on your skin once you’ve washed your face.
2. Concealer and Foundation for Glowing Skin
Having clear, glowing skin is the ultimate goal for many. Sadly, not everyone is born with a perfect skin type that’s easy to maintain. A lot of people have dark circles under the eyes, acne or scars that they’d gladly remove. Since that is not completely possible, the best you can do for your self-esteem is to accept your skin and fix it using various products.
So, take concealer two shades lighter than your skin tone and apply it under your eyes and over blemishes and redness you want to cover. Don’t forget to add a bit of concealer to your brow bone. It’s used as a primer for eye shadow if you’re planning on using any. After that apply foundation a bit lighter than your skin tone. Use a sponge or a brush to blend it all over your face and neck to create the effect of flawless skin.
3. Eye Makeup
Repeat after me: “Less mascara is more mascara”. Take a black mascara you like and wiggle it through your eyelashes. That’s how you’ll create a volume and length you’re aiming for without those annoying clumps that make you’re your eyelashes look like insects’ legs. Eyes are the mirror of the soul, so it’s natural to want to grow beautiful long lashes to accent them.
Don’t forget to clean up your eyelids if you got mascara on them. If you do, mascara will get smudged and ruin your eye makeup. After you’ve cleaned the smudge, gently apply brown or black eyeliner to visually enlarge your eyes and lashes. To complete the look, apply light brown eyeshadow to your lids. Keep it simple and natural.
No matter the weather, your lips need to be nicely moisturized just like your face. Different weather conditions have various effects on your lips. Plus, if you want to complete the natural makeup look, you have to put at least a lip balm to protect your lips from the hot and cold. On top of that, you can apply a lip-gloss or a natural colour of a lipstick.
No matter how much makeup you put on, it’s always better to apply natural and high-quality cosmetic products. These cosmetic products will not only make your face glow but also protect it from damaging rays and the risk of infections, cheap and low-quality products carry.
Eyebrows can completely change the way your face looks. Even if you don’t feel like putting so much effort with eyeliner and eyeshadow, having perfectly filled eyebrows will make you ready to go. So, naturally, you’d want ways to get the best brows possible.
The truth is, everyone’s face is different. What might look good on Beyoncé, may not look good on you, and that’s okay. The trick is to find the shape that suits your face the best and stick to it. Remember not to overfill your brows. You’re going for that natural look, and overfilling them may make your face look like it’s heavily caked with makeup.
In the end, style your hair however you like, and ta-da, you have the perfect natural look in just 10 minutes. Makeup isn’t rocket science, nor it should be complicated. It’s an ideal method of hiding our minor flaws such as acne or dark circles and highlighting our naturally beautiful facial features such as eyes, eyebrows, face structure, or lips. The best part is that it doesn’t take away too much time, but it makes us feel so much more confident and beautiful. Rock that look!
