When it comes to makeup, a lot of times less is more. After all, makeup is meant to enhance your natural beauty, not cover it up! Nude and natural makeup looks are suitable for every age. The timeless look of a natural, my skin but better makeup style will allow you to perfect a flawless look that you can keep for years to come.
First, it’s important to start off with the best skin possible. This means adding hydrating and nourishing products to your skincare and makeup regimen to keep your skin plump and moist. Plumped-up and hydrated skin will make your pores look smaller, your fine lines disappear and give your makeup a more dewy, natural finish. *scroll to the bottom of the page for a full step by step photo tutorial*
Step 1: Refresh
Once your skin is prepped, it’s time to tackle those dark circles and discolourations. To completely erase pores and dark circles under your eyes, I recommend the Delight 18 I.U Whitening Cream Salmon Spot. This cream can be used as a spot treatment or as a full-face primer. It offers full coverage for dark circles and blemishes while evening out discoloration’s and hydrating your skin. The thing I love most about this cream is that it’s full of vitamins, nutrients and plant extracts that will help to brighten skin over long-term use. I like to use it as a full-face primer and then use a dab of concealer over it.
Step 2: Perfect
For a little extra coverage, you need a concealer that is creamy and natural. Many concealers are cakey or greasy, but the Klair’s Creamy & Natural Fit Concealer is the exact opposite. Its creamy formula is hypoallergenic, which makes it suitable for any age or skin type. The wand applicator makes it easy to apply just the right amount without smearing or clumping, and all you have to do is gently tap the concealer in to achieve a natural, porcelain finish that can be followed by a cushion or BB cream.
Step 3: The Natural Makeup Look
The next step in a natural look is to reach for a BB cream rather than a heavy foundation. BB creams offer light, buildable coverage that will enhance the natural beauty of your skin rather than covering it up. My favorite BB cream is Klair’s Illuminating Supple Blemish Cream. The Klair’s motto is, ìBe Natural, and this BB cream is the perfect way to achieve that natural glow. This BB cream is suitable for every skin type, even extra dry or acne-prone skin. The cream is packed with hydrating and brightening ingredients to give skin a lively, beautiful finish. The special formula even allows for multiple applications without caking or clumping. The best part about the Supple Blemish Cream is that it has built-in UV protection to keep skin healthy.
Now that your face is flawless and radiant, it’s time to move on to your eyes and brows. The key to a natural look is soft, full brows and nude eye makeup. Try filling in your brows with a powder instead of a pencil, and then lightly brush them out with a spoolie brush. Be sure the powder is only as dark as your brows, otherwise it will look unnatural.
For naturally beautiful eyes, choose a shimmery nude color like champagne or rose gold to highlight your eye color, and follow with a soft brown eyeliner on the upper lid. Highlight the lower lid and inside corners of your eyes with a touch of the eyeshadow or a light, shimmery illuminator to make your eyes look bright and awake, then finish with a few swipes of brown or soft black mascara on your top lashes.
To complete your natural look, choose a lip balm or tint that is close to your natural lip color but slightly more rosy. This will give you youthful, full lips without too much pigment or gloss.
As an added touch, you can dab a bit of creamy blush onto the apples of your cheeks and blend it lightly upward and outward towards the outside corner of your eye for some extra color.
And that’s it! This nude, natural look will make any woman look young and radiant, no matter her age.
