NO MAKEUP, MAKEUP
What sounds like quite the contradiction is actually one of our absolute favorite makeup trends. Once upon a time, trendy makeup applications were all about the perfect cut crease or dramatic smoky eye, but nowadays, it’s shifted to embracing your born-with-it beauty. Here’s how to play it up for a natural makeup look.
What you’ll need:
- Makeup Primer
- Color Correcting
- Foundation Blender
- Eye shadow primer
- Nude Palette
- Pencil Eyeliner in Brown
- Brow Mascara
- Matte Lipstick
Step 1: PRIME YOUR SKIN
To make your makeup perfect, always start by applying primer, as that would surely extend the life of your makeup. Apply it on the entire face to allow the makeup to set evenly.
Step 2: COLOR CORRECT ANY IMPERFECTIONS
Before applying your foundation use the colour corrector to neutralize your skin of any discolouration. There are four types:
- Green – Cancel out redness
- Lavender – Covers up the dullness
- Peach/ Orange – Covers dark circles
- Yellow – any other discolouration
Step 3: USE A MATTE FOUNDATION
Now comes the foundation part. Make sure you apply a matte foundation for this look by dabbing on your skin with a makeup blender.
Step 4: PRIME YOUR LIDS
Use a primer for your eyelids so that the eye makeup will look smoother than ever. Using a primer is essential before any eye makeup.
Step 5: APPLY NUDE SHADOW TO YOUR LIDS
For this look, apply a solid layer of nude shadow and a dark brown shade to the crease of the lid and a lighter shade towards the brow.
Step 6: APPLY BROWN EYELINER
Draw a thin dotted line of the eyeliner that will make your eyes look natural, and it would appear that you have fuller lashes.
Step 7: LIGHTLY DEFINE YOUR BROWS
Do not make your eyebrows dark, fill them lightly with a natural colour mascara. Avoid using black mascara instead use a brown one.
Step 8: APPLY A COAT OR TWO OF MASCARA
Top your eyes off with a couple of coats of volumizing mascara.
Step 9: FINISH WITH NUDE LIPSTICK:
One final touch to your look would be with nude lipstick and trust me you are ready with a gorgeous no makeup, makeup look. Wear it to brunch, the office, on a date—you name it!
