A Beautiful No-Makeup Makeup Look in 5 Easy Steps
Natural looks always attract everyone but sometimes these looks can be attain by exclusive techniques and makeup products for longer periods. And on a particular day, you want to go bare-faced with more elegance without makeup. Through precise products and skills, you can style the most of your regular splendor without wearing a ton of any major cosmetics.
STEP 1: Prep the Palette
Pittsburgh-based makeup artist Patty Bell says “Also, drink lots of water to plump the skin from the inside”. Not only drinking water, but having a smooth fair skin starts with inside freshness. Before applying any makeup. Tone your face with a good moisturizer to get a luminous skin.
STEP 2: Step off Base
Do not use thick layers of foundation instead use a tinted moisturizer and BB cream for a better fresh outlook. Mary Schook, who is a New York esthetician and makeup artist, says, “Applying your makeup with your fingers or makeup sponges instead of brushes will also create a more natural look.” Applying translucent powder around your forehead, nose, and chin is also a good idea for a light reflecting appearance.
STEP 3: Fake a Natural Flush
Mary Schook also says to get fake a natural flush, “Blend a dot of the blush into areas where the sun would fall on your face -- apples of your cheeks, chin, forehead, and bridge of nose.”
See your skin tone in detail and get to know what type of creamy blush suits you best. Powder pinks also can be used for this purpose. Experts recommend peachy pinks for medium skin and brownish pinks for darker skin. Avoiding makeup with a lot of sparkle or vivacity blend outward and provides more natural appearance.
STEP 4: Open Your Eyes
Mary Schook further says especially for lids, “You can still use a shadow and look natural, Just use cream shadows in skin-tone-friendly shades instead of powders that can sit on the skin and make it look like you are wearing makeup.”
Giving lashes a delicate enhancement by twisting them and then lifting them with one coat of brown or dark brown expansion mascara will enhance your overall soberness and composure.
STEP 5: Pucker Up
Always try to use a lip color that matches your skin tone. Using a color adjusting gloss is good to wear. It shows good results on darker skin tones. Even the New York makeup artist Denise Del Russo also highly recommends it. Misting skin with a light makeup-setting and spraying after applying, you will certainly feel that this has helped makeup to stay fresh throughout the day.
