The Dos and Don'ts of Natural Looking Makeup


The Dos and Don'ts of Natural Looking Makeup

Do exfoliate your skin gently and get plenty of rest
A great natural looks starts with great skin, so take care of yourself first and foremost. This also means moisturizing, eating right and drinking plenty of water. We may be born with the looks we’ve got, but healthy living will help you look your best.

Don’t go to sleep with your makeup on
It only takes five minutes to wash away the grime and filth of the day that has accumulated in your makeup. Wearing makeup overnight clogs pores and can result in dull lifeless skin or even worse, a breakout.

Do have a professional help you find the perfect shade of foundation or tinted moisturizer
Nothing looks less natural than makeup applied to your skin that is a shade too dark or too light. A professional makeup artist can help you find the perfect foundation color and weight for your skin type.

Don’t overdo it with the bronzer
Bronzer is a wonderful invention that helps us get a healthy glow without the risk of skin cancer. But use too much and you get an orange appearance, looking less like you’ve been sun-kissed and more like an Oompa Loompa. Apply bronzer lightly to the areas of your face that are more likely to get sun-kissed like the bridge of your nose and the apples of your cheeks.

Do use a lengthening mascara
Looking natural doesn’t mean abandoning all makeup. Mascara helps brighten your eyes and improve your whole look. Use a eyelash curler for more of an effect, but make sure your mascara doesn’t clump.

Don’t forget your concealer
Light gloss on your lips and barely-there eyeshadow stands out best when they don’t have to compete with purple under-eye circles or red skin discoloration. Use concealer, but blend well with a foundation brush so you can’t actually see the concealer.

Do opt for subtle lip and eye shadow colors
For your lip, choose a shade that is just slightly darker or lighter than your actual lip color like a gloss or a lip stain. For a shadow, stick to beige, tan, or subtle pink.

Don’t forget to groom your eyebrows
With a more natural look, brows are more likely to stand out on the relatively blank canvas. Make sure they’re groomed to perfection.

Do use a touch of eye liner
Use a muted tone like olive, tan, or gray. Or, use black or dark brown with a light hand, then use a cotton tip to smudge the eyeliner. Be careful to not make the line too wide or dramatic.

Don’t cover up what makes you you
We love Emma Watson’s freckles, and think she looks even more stunning when she lets them shine through. Whether it’s a beauty mark or freckles, let these unique characteristics of your face be a part of your natural face look.
