Natural Makeup Tips....

A natural makeup look is not as easy as it looks. You might want to think cuz you have less products on, then it shouldn't be that difficult to apply and it should be faster. But don't get it twisted, it actually takes more time and dedication to achieve cuz each the look must come out looking as natural as possible and flawless, so it needs complete attention to details in the application process....

Here are a few tips to applying natural makeup like a professional.

Read Tips after the cut:


  • Exfoliate and moisturise skin before makeup application so that there are no flaky patches or dull skin.

  • Use a foundation brush instead of a sponge.

  • Blend the makeup in well to avoid streaks.

  • Blot off excess foundation with a sponge.

  • Dab, instead of wiping, concealer on those blemishes and dark circles you want to hide. Use a sponge or concealer brush for the best results.

  • Test out foundation in bright sunlight or white instead of yellow bulb light. Dab it on your jaw. The right colour would disappear right into your skin.

  • Cheeks

  • To get the most natural blush look, you should choose a gel or cream blush in the same tone of your own flushed cheeks after exercise.

  • Apply with fingertips or a blush brush lightly to the apples of the cheeks and blend outwards towards the temples.

  • Eye

  • When it comes to applying mascara, wiggle the wand at the base of your lashes first. This gives them the impression of being naturally thick and not like you coated them with tar.

  • Comb out lashes with a lash comb after applying mascara so that they are clump free.

  • To give lashes indiscernible thickness and length, glue two to three eyelash flares in between the gaps in the outer corner of your lash line.

  • Use waterproof mascara so even if your eyes tear no one would guess you have it on.

  • Lips

  • Choose a matte lipstick that is the same shade of your natural lips.

  • If you prefer lip gloss, get a colour that is close to your lips with little shimmer. You want to avoid glitter cosmetics for a natural look.

  • Skip the dark eyeliner on the waterline. Instead use a tone that is the same as your natural colour there. Use a soft, well sharpened eye pencil so that it does not drag along this area roughly.
