Natural Makeup Look

After showing you all my makeup yesterday, I thought it would be fun to show you what I do with some of it.  A natural makeup look is what I wear most days.  The look I am going for is basically a 'no makeup' look, I like to use makeup to enhance facial features not exaggerate them.  I do add eyeshadow & liner for nighttime looks, but I don't like looking too done up for class, hanging out with friends, or running errands.  Here is how to achieve a look that enhances your natural beauty:

Conceal Bags & Blemishes - TheBalm TimeBalm concealer is the best concealer I have ever used.  Use this to conceal any imperfections especially bags or dark circles under your eyes, I typically apply with my a concealer brush not the little sponge.

Curl & Darken Lashes - Curling your lashes opens up your eyes & makes them look larger, Shu Uemura makes one of the best eyelash curlers on the market.  Applying mascara makes your lashes darker & more defined, helping your eyes to stand out, DiorShow mascara is one of the most luxe & popular mascaras available (see what I am currently using here).

Groom Brows - No one likes unruly eyebrows, you should regularly have your brows waxed (what I do), threaded, or tweeze them yourself to keep a clean shape, you can then use clear mascara or brow gel to to tame brows & make sure that all of the hairs are in their right places.

Add Flush to Cheeks - You want to look like you're blushing or have a natural flush to add a little color to your face & define your cheekbones.  Nars blush in Orgasm is universally flattering & one of the most celebrated beauty products out there (see what I am currently using here).

Perfect Your Pout -  To do this you can use a lip tint in a color similar to that of your lips, which adds a little sheen or sparkle to your lips & makes them looks full & pouty.  You can also go really natural & just apply some lip balm; EOS makes great all natural, gluten free ones.

What do you do when you're going for a natural look?

  1. I need to try that concealer! I've been using Perfekt - which feels AMAZING on my skin - but, it's hard to cover up those problem areas perfectly.

    Thanks for the tips!

  2. When doing a natural make-up look, I use mostly the same products as you. But I tend to bronze rather than use bush! :)
    Great post!
