Are you a fan of simplicity? Do you love wearing makeup, but still want to look natural? How about one look that you can wear for many different occasions? If any of these are your wishes, keep reading Faviana’s Guide to the Perfect Natural Makeup for your dream look.
1. Match your foundation to your skin color
This is the MOST important tip to natural makeup! This is the number one mistake that happens when wearing makeup. When you are going to purchase a new foundation, you need to first understand your skin. Is it oily, dry, or combination of both? After you know the answer, sample the foundation on your neck or on the inside of your fore arm. If you can’t find one that is perfect, go a shade lighter. Bronzer always warms up the face, which can be added later on. Remember you can’t go lighter after you have applied a darker foundation.
Still not 100% confident in this process? Ask one of your makeup guru friends or go to an Ulta or Sephora to get some professional help. This will ensure you get the right shade and have a second pair of eyes to help you.
2. Find a bronzer that works with your skin tone
By finding a bronzer that works with your skin tone, this will give you a natural contour, rather than something that is harsh. To go for the contour look, apply it under your hair line, the sides of your nose, your temples, under your cheek bones, and jaw line. If you’re fair, use a sheer bronzer with peach undertones. If you’re an olive skin tone, try something earthy/taupe-y for your bronzed skin. Dark skin tones work best with deep rich bronzers that contain shimmery hues.
3. Find your blush
Not everyone is blessed with rosy red cheeks. Fret not, Faviana is here. We are going to help you find a natural blush color for you. First, pinch your cheeks a little (don’t pinch too hard). After, take a look in a mirror, take a Celfié if you need, and notice the color. That is your natural blush color. Once you think you have it, go and try to match it. If there isn’t an exact match, go a little lighter or darker, your preference.
Eyes are essentials in whatever look you’re trying to achieve. With this look, it’s just a little easier to achieve. All you need to do is apply some of your perfectly matched bronzer to your eyelids. This will add just enough color, giving the perfect pop to your look. After your eyelids are finished, curl your lashes and apply a light coat of mascara. For more on this, check out our blog on natural eye makeup!
Use these tips to achieve the perfect natural makeup. This look will be perfect for any event. Date night, it works. Prom, add some falsies and you’re done. Gala event, reach for a glossy nude or a red lip. This is one look that is a total must.
