Applying makeup is an art form that takes time, practice, and precision to perfect. And once you’ve got one technique down, it’s easy to get stuck in a rut of always wearing the same look. If you’re looking to switch things up and achieve a more natural look, here are some tips to help you out.
Don’t Skip Your Skincare Routine
Having great skin is the foundation of any good makeup look. If your skin is not in top condition, no amount of makeup will be able to give you the desired effect.
So, make sure to start with a clean slate by following an effective skincare routine. This means cleansing, toning, and moisturizing every day, as well as exfoliating- with skincare products made with quality specialty chemical products.
To find the best skincare products for your skin type, consult with a dermatologist or esthetician.
Choose the Right Foundation
Foundation is one of the most important products in achieving a natural makeup look.
It’s important to find a foundation that matches your skin tone exactly – not too light and not too dark. Test foundation shades on your jawline and wait a few minutes to see how the color develops before making your final decision.
It’s also important to choose a foundation with the right finish. If you have dry skin, look for a hydrating foundation. If you have oily skin, look for an oil-free or mattifying foundation. And if you have normal skin, any type of foundation will work.
Once you’ve found the right foundation, apply it with a damp beauty blender to create a natural, dewy finish.
Conceal Only What Needs to Be Concealed
When it comes to concealer, less is always more. Use a small amount of product to only cover up the areas that need it – under the eyes, on any blemishes, and in the inner corners of the eyes.
Then blend the product out with a damp beauty blender for a natural finish.
Go Easy on the Powder
Powder is another product that can easily be overused.
If you have oily skin, for example, you may be tempted to use a lot of powder to keep your face matte throughout the day. But using too much powder can actually make your skin look dry and cakey.
A light dusting of setting powder on the areas that tend to get oily – the forehead, nose, and chin – is all you need to achieve a natural makeup look that will last all day.
Following these simple makeup tips will help you achieve a more natural look. Just remember to start with a good skincare routine, choose the right foundation, and use concealer and powder sparingly. With a little practice, you’ll be able to create a natural makeup look that’s perfect for any occasion.
