Every flawless makeup application begins with a personal skincare regimen. A well-planned skincare routine can drastically change the condition of your skin, especially if you have a problematic skin type. Stick to your morning and night time skincare regimen for cleaner and healthier skin.
Natural Seamless Foundation
Apply a moisturizing primer and lightweight foundation for the minimalistic look. Choose a makeup foundation that will look natural and feel comfortable on your skin. Make sure you select according to your skin type: for dry skin, choose a hydrating formula - for oily complexions, try a matte finish.
For dull or lifeless skin, use an illuminating primer to give your skin a radiant glow.
For an extra glow and dewy effect, apply 1-2 drops of liquid illuminator to your foundation and apply as normal.
For natural looking skin, choose BB cream over regular foundation. Of course, BB cream will not cover all imperfections but it will moisturize and protect your skin from harmful UV lights. Any small blemishes and other problematic areas can be hidden with concealer.
Subtle Highlighting & Contouring
After you are done with primer and foundation, it is time to add dimension back to your face.
Try to keep your contouring and highlighting subtle and natural. You can use both cream or powder products to contour your face and a soft angled brush to ease the application. If the final results turned out to be too harsh, mute the strong lines and color with translucent powder.
Natural Eye & Brow Makeup
What about eyebrows? Your favorite brow pomade can be a little bit too strong for a natural everyday makeup look, so it is better to substitute it with a softer product. Eyebrow powder or even a matte eyebrow pencil can create a very beautiful and natural eyebrow look. Use colors that are close to your natural eyebrow color or a little bit darker, blend the product with a synthetic brush and set the final look with a clean eyebrow gel.
The final step is a soft and natural pout. Line your natural lip shape with a sharpened lipliner. If you want to make your lips appear a little bit bigger, you can overdraw your lips a bit. Use a lipliner that is 1-2 shades darker than your natural lip color. Outline and fill in your lips entirely with the lipliner. Then, apply your fave nude lipstick to complete the look. A dusty pink mauve is a great, universally flattering shade. You can add a little bit of lipgloss to give extra volume and shine to your lips.
