So, the no make-up look is very much in right now, and the natural look is definitely going to be a trend that we see throughout 2022.
The secret to making your make-up not look like make up is to use concealer and foundation only where you need it and to blend it into your skin. The rest of the face should be left relatively bare.
Prepare your skin
Before applying foundation or any product, it’s important that you cleanse your face with a gentle cleanser preferably. If you don’t have one, you can use a cleansing milk and remove this with some tonic water.
Apply a moisturizer with SPF 15 to protect the skin from UV rays and keep it hydrated throughout the day. Then apply primer before moving on to makeup. It helps even out the skin texture and creates a smooth base for your foundation.
Starting with foundation and light bronzer
The right way to do this is by applying it with a light hand and using colors that are close to your own skin tone. This will ensure that you don’t look like you have on too much makeup and that it won’t give off the wrong impression.
You start by applying foundation and then concealer on the areas of your face that need it. You can do this by dabbing on makeup with a brush or with your finger if you prefer. For women who want a fresh-faced, as opposed to full-coverage, look, you can use only foundation or only concealer if you wish.
Next, apply bronzer where the sun naturally hits your face for a warm glow. Then add a blush to the apples of your cheeks.
Soft, subtle eye makeup is the perfect look for a natural, fresh-faced complexion. Women with fair skin, large eyes, and thin eyebrows are best suited to this type of makeup. The key to applying understated eye makeup is using neutral tones to complement your eye colour, while enhancing your natural beauty.
Apply an eyeshadow base in cream or white colour over the entire eyelid. This acts as a primer for your eyeshadow and will keep it from creasing throughout the day.
Choose a soft brown matte eyeshadow, as dark browns can be too harsh and make your eyes look smaller than they really are. Light browns can also work for hazel and blue eyes.
Apply the light brown colour over the entire eyelid with a fluffy blending brush or sponge applicator. Blend well so that no harsh lines are visible between your eyelid and brow bone.
What to choose instead of mascara?
Eyelash lifting treatment gives you that doe-eyed look you’ve probably been trying to achieve by layering on multiple coats of mascara. The treatment works by curling your lashes from the root up, creating a lift that can last for up to eight weeks.
The process itself is pretty painless and relaxing. After cleansing your eyes and applying an under-eye pad to protect your lower lashes, the technician will apply silicone shields to your eyelids, followed by a protective gel pad. These shields are used to lift the lashes vertically upwards along their natural growth direction so that they can be treated more easily.
Subtle lips make-up
Pink lipstick gives your lips a natural-looking colour without being too dark or overwhelming. Choose a light pink shade and apply it sparingly for the best results. You can also use lip gloss if you prefer not to wear lipstick at all.
First, if you’re using a lipstick that you really like and it doesn’t have any moisturizing ingredients in it, apply a lip balm first. This way you can wear your favourite lipstick without drying out your lips. Then take a concealer and apply it on your entire lip area, including above the upper lip. Take a bright pink lipstick and apply it directly on your lips without using a brush. It’s easier this way and the colour will be more intense.
