When it comes to makeup, there’s an infinite number of combinations and styles! While you can put a rainbow of eyeshadow over your eyes and look amazing, sometimes it feels great to go for a more subtle (while still gorgeous) natural look. Here are some tips to help you achieve a natural makeup look you can use every day to still look glam while going to school.
- Prep First
With a natural makeup look, you’ll want to start with a strong base: your natural, glowing skin. Make sure to moisturize well to get a smooth surface to work with. The first step to ANY natural makeup look is your skin.
- Skip the Foundation
Some foundations can look “caked on” if applied too thickly. If you want to achieve the best natural look, try going without it. Instead, use a tinted moisturizer or a light, matte powder to smooth the complexion of your face while still showing your natural skin.
- Work with Warm Brown Eyeshadows
If you’re looking to achieve a more natural look, skip the blues, golds, greens, and purples. Instead, go for a more neutral brown eyeshadow. Not only do browns look great on multiple eye colors, but they help achieve an overall more natural look.
- Focus on the Lashes
While it’s hard to go without mascara, the best part to a more natural makeup look can be the lashes. Skip the eyelash extensions and the fake lashes. Instead, use a little bit of black or brown mascara to add a little pop, but don’t go too far.
- Go for a Cute Lip
If you want to spice up your more natural look, add a light pink, peach, or neutral color to your lips. Better yet, go for a tinted chapstick with SPF to moisturize, protect, and color your lips. You can make your lips look smooth without the hassle of dealing with lipstick on your teeth.
- Add a touch of color
When going for a more natural look, add a touch of color to your cheeks with a warm blush. If you choose to add blush to your natural look, make sure not to use too much product. Instead, only add enough to create a warm glow to your face.
