In the past couple of decades, women paid a lot of attention to brightly coloured lipsticks and dark mascara. However, these days, the more natural look is more appealing. It is also healthier because heavy makeup does not seep into the pores and there is less to clean off when you go to bed at night. Of course, a little makeup is necessary in order to bring out the best of your features.
Here are five beauty and makeup tips for that awesome natural look:
Cleanse the skin
You need to start with a good cleanser as well as good moisturizer. Wash your skin well under warm water. This will prevent it from drying out. The moisturizer should have a good SPF factor, which will also help prevent the skin from drying outr and becoming dehydrated.
Focus on a light foundation, instead of something that is going to be too harsh. You may want to think of a moisturizer with a slight tint. This means that you don’t have to opt for a foundation which can clog up the pores. Use a slight red tint around the cheeks. However, don’t go overboard with this. It should be kept as natural as possible. Experts suggest that when you using foundation, it should be applied with fingers and rubbed in because this will look more natural.
It is easy to overdo this as you may have seen in the past when women applied heavy makeup. To make this as natural as possible, look for a cream which will match up to your skin tone. Have a look at the color of your lips and match this up to the tint. Stay away from the shimmers, which will look less natural. Blend this in well over your cheek bones as well as the lips.
It is important to focus on the eyes, especially when these are your best feature. However, it is important not to go overboard with mascara and eyeliner either. You can do more harm than good when you apply too much mascara, because you won’t bring out the colour of your eyes. Your eye lashes just need a slight coat. A lot of people use a cream on their eyelids because powders can become caked.
There are many ways that you can bring out your lips. You will have achieved the natural look by now, and you can finish this off by a little color on the lips. There are many natural colors available on the market. You need to find something that is just slightly brighter than that of your own lips. Have your gloss with your so that you can reapply it. There are also sprays available which help set the makeup.
