Natural Look Makeup is all about making your features stand out, without looking like you are wearing a ton of makeup. It is easy to go overboard and look too glam, so consider which steps to skip if you wear makeup frequently. Start with flawless skin, and contour to give your face a 3 dimensional look. You don’t need false eyelashes, lip liner, or eyeliner. Stay with neutrals, colors for they eyes that match your hair color or try shades of taupes and brown, bronze, or burgandy. Black mascara is ok, but if you have brown or blonde hair use a dark brown mascara for a softer look. Adding mascara only to the upper lashes also gives you a more natural look. You can choose to skip blush if you did some cheek conturing, but stick to a very subtle shade of pink or peach blush with a light application if you feel you need it. You can also use a bronzer on your cheeks instead of blush for a more natural color. Choose a lip color that is either very sheer or close to your natural lip shade. See my post on Nude lip colors for ideas of good nude lip products.
Here is my NATURAL MAKEUP LOOK. NO PHOTOSHOP & BARELY ANY MAKEUP. JUST LIGHT MINERAL POWDER BY FRESH, CONCEALER UNDER EYES, AND OVER BLEMISH ON CHIN. MASCARA ON TOP LASHES ONLY, VERY LIGHT TAUPE EYESHADOW BY CHANEL ON OUTTER CORNERS OF MY CREASE, AND GLOSS DABBED LIGHTLY ON LIPS. NO BLUSH, NO CONTURING, NO EYELINER, NO LIPLINER.
Below is a photo of natural makeup that I did on Camille Anderson. I enhanced her eyes more than I did on myself in the photo above. I made her skin look flawless with concealer and cream foundation from Cinema Secrets, eye shadow is a bronze shade blended in the crease and lightly under her bottom lashes, and mascara is black. I kept her lips nude, with just a clear gloss, and popped her cheeks with a light dusting of bronzer with a medium fan brush.
