Natural makeup isn’t just for out-duty days. When you fancy a change from your go-to shade of red camo or favorite smokey eyeshadow, a pruned-back beauty look is your BFF. Suppose fresh, polished skin paired with flattering neutral tones around your complexion for the most natural look.
But creating a truly fresh-faced finish can be a little tricky to achieve – unless you have our makeup artist-approved tips and ways, that is. Read on to master your most natural makeup look ever with these ten gleam-boosting tips. Ready to go au naturel?
1. Brighten Your Base
Prep your skin while improving texture and tone over time with a hard-working primer. Miracle Prep 3-in-1 Beauty Protect Primer SPF 30 is a smart formula with skincare benefits, featuring constituents like cheering ginseng and pollution-blocking Ginkgo Biloba. Plus, the featherlight texture glides on fluently, working to reduce dark spots and indeed our skin tone in just four weeks.
Fleck manual onto T- zones, and mix using fingertips for a smooth, fresh-faced oil for makeup. Or, for a no-makeup-makeup day, skip your usual foundation and conclude for a reach of
.Miracle Glow Pro Universal Highlighter. We love using Radiant Lift Foundation for this trick because its radiant-matte formula ensures the gleam looks ultra-polished – noway candescent. After creating this dew-boosting mix, valve it on the center of your face, also blend out with fritters or a makeup sponger for your- skin-but-fresher effect.
2. Go Light on the Concealer
It may be tempting to cover every perceived ‘imperfection’ with a layer of concealer but others infrequently notice that mark or patch of discoloration you’ve been obsessing over. So, rather of applying cover- over each over your face, valve it only where you really feel you need it, like under your eyes or on crimsoned cheeks. Radiant Lift Concealer will disguise signs of fatigue in seconds and melts in seamlessly when gently gentled with your ring cutlet.
3. Achieve a Rosy Flush
When it comes to making blusher look entirely natural, it’s all about the formula you choose and make sure you apply it to the right spot. So, let’s launch with the formula; a delicate color is our pick for a rosy flush that looks like it comes from within. Choose your shade of Miracle Touch Creamy Blush then swirl your finger in the pot to warm it up.
Next, smile and use two fritters to valve color onto the apples of your cheeks, before blending up along cheekbones for a credible gleam. Finish by sweeping Bronzer around the external edge of your face and smoothly underneath your cheekbones to add a little warmth to your skin.
4. Brush Up Your Brows
Browse has a bigger impact on your natural look than you’d anticipate. Get them looking too‘ done’, and your makeup goes from slightly there to bold in no time. To give your bends a little redundant wholeness without looking oppressively carved, go for a brushed-up effect with Brow Shaper
by teasing beaches overhead using the erected-in encounter. Use the pencil end to sketch in the description in short, sharp, hair-mimicking strokes, also add a reach of Brow Revival eyebrow mascara to plump and hold your brow shape.
5. Create Subtle Smokey Eyes
Give your smokey eye a subtler edge with the following advice from Global Creative Director & Make-up Artist for Max Factor, Wendy Rowe. She uses a combination of the Miracle Contouring Palette and Masterpiece Nude Palette in Golden Nudes to create a soft, smudgy look that’s ultra-easy to replicate.
To start, use a small, fluffy brush to apply the darkest shade in the contouring palette, sweeping it back and forth through the socket line to create a diffused ‘C’ shape. Set the cream by blending the sixth shade from the nude eyeshadow palette (a warm brown) over the top. Then, sweep the darkest shade along the upper lash line.
Take the darkest contour cream again, trace it along the lower lash line, then smudge with your finger. Don’t be afraid to blend it downwards, smoothing it away from the lashes. Smokey eyes, sorted.
6. Soften Up Your Eyeliner
Opting for a natural makeup look doesn’t mean you have to skip the eyeliner. Instead, simply swap your usual black liquid formula for a coffee or caramel tone that gives a subtle definition. Kohl Pencil in Taupe is ideal for tracing along your upper and lower lash lines, as it lends a touch of sultry, eye-catching color without the drama of a jet-black liner. Foolproof.
7. Try a New Mascara Shade
Mascara addicts, take note; if you want a fuller flutter that looks natural and enhances the whites of your eyes, brown mascara will be the new hero of your makeup bag. Using a brown tint, like Lash Revival Mascara in Black/Brown, will still give you all the plumping, lengthening power you love, but with a softer finish that perfectly complements a natural makeup look. Plus, the innovative formula strengthens and lengthens every time you apply. The result? Lashes will appear thicker and fuller in four weeks – even when you’re not wearing mascara.
For full, natural-looking lashes, apply mascara as you usually would, nudging the wand into the roots of lashes, then zig-zagging through to the tips for a glossy, even coat. Flawless.
8. Dial-Up Your Glow
Want to add a little extra luminosity to your base? Get your glow on with a touch of highlighter. Use your fingertips to warm the shimmering side of Miracle Glow Duo, then dot and tap high onto cheekbones and browbones, blending under your arches to softly sculpt. Finish by tapping highlighter down the center of your nose, the top of your cupid’s bow, and the tip of your chin for instant natural-looking radiance.
9. Do a Dewy Lip Look
Finish your natural look by lighting up lips with a dewy, glossy tint. We love Colour Elixir Lip Cushion in Spotlight Sheer for a halo of hydrating color that’s packed with lip-loving antioxidants. Glide it on for a sophisticated swipe of pinky-peachy pigment, or gently blot to achieve a nearly-nude effect, then press lips together to blend.
