French women have a particular approach to beauty and especially when it comes to makeup. Remember: less is more! This natural makeup look can be the perfect makeup look for everyday wear. And it has some benefits that include less time, less product, and simpler techniques. It’s an excellent option for casual days, lazy mornings, or when you’re running behind schedule.
1. Prep Your Skin
With this natural look, everything starts with glowing, great natural skin. Start by looking after your skin with a proper skincare routine that includes cleansing, gentle exfoliation, toning, and moisturizing, but that also tackles issues such as spots, aging, or dryness.
2. Use A Lightweight Foundation
To create a natural makeup look, choose a foundation with light coverage, as a heavy foundation can almost erase your features. To create a fresh, dewy glow, prefer a liquid formula that generally has the most natural finish and steer away from any formulas that are heavy or matte. Also, it’s essential to choose a formula that will suit your skin type, as well as the shade that’s closest to your skin.
3. Use A Lightweight Concealer
A tip to ensure a more natural finish when using concealer is to only use the tiniest amount of product. Indeed, just apply your concealer sparingly to problem areas: under the eyes, but also anywhere else to cover blemishes or pigmentations. Just blend with your fingers as the warmth of your skin makes the product melt right in, so the application looks seamless against the rest of the skin.
4. Add A Touch Of Blush
This natural makeup look is all about natural glow and a little flush. To get that look, just add a little bit of blush exactly where you would naturally flush: to the apples of the cheeks, up onto the temples, and right on the bridge of the nose. Blend until you have a very subtle color and natural finish.
5. Add Definition With Bronzer Powder
To create a more natural finish, just apply a bronzer —preferable one without shimmer— around the outside edge of your face and whip it lightly under your cheekbones. Also, when you want to contour, apply a bronzer from your forehead to your cheekbones and then from your cheekbones to your chin and also on the bridge of your nose.
6. Brush Up Your Brows
For a natural look, simply use a brow gel with fibers and brush your brows up and into place. This makeup look is all about enhancing the beauty of your natural brows by keeping them natural and not over-filled. And it’s essential not to have a strong line.
7. Opt For Nude Eyeshadows
For a very natural look, opt for nude or neutral eyeshadows. Indeed, neutrals like soft browns, beige, peach, and taupe suit all eye colors. Just keep the eye really simple with a neutral shimmering taupe eyeshadow or with soft brown eyeshadow on the upper lid for that upward eye makeup direction. You can even use your bronzer as an alternative to eyeshadow; it will always warm up the crease and bring out any lighter tones in brown eyes.
8. Go Light On The Lashes
To recreate this all natural makeup look, curling the eyelashes can be enough.
In order to get a natural-looking lip color, first, exfoliate away any dead skin with a gentle, hydrating lip scrub . You can also buff them with a very soft toothbrush. Next, apply a balm and let it sink in for a couple of minutes. Then, apply your favorite lipstick and use the brush to buff the color into your lips creating a diffused, long-lasting, lip stain.
