Light natural makeup is your savior on the days you have to rush out of your home in 10 minutes or if you are new to makeup or for occasions you don’t want your face to look caked up in makeup for instance, a first date or a brunch with friends. Here is a guide to perfecting the natural make up look.
Step #1: Skin prep
When you are not using a thick veil of makeup to cover up your skin, it is essential that you have healthy skin so that you do not need much make up to cover up your imperfections. Smooth, well hydrated skin also let’s your make up to glide on smoothly and look flawless. So apart from your daily cleansing, toning and moisturizing routine which suggested in many magazines of beauty care in Hindi and English, you must exfoliate at least 2 times in a week to get rid of black heads, white heads and deep seated dirt from your pores. If you have facial hair, then you can consider shaving it off so your make up gets the smoothest canvas.
Step #2: Priming
The makeup market is flooded with a variety of primers for every skin type and concern. If you have dull, dehydrated skin look for primers which has moisturizing and illuminating properties. For skin that gets very oily for primers which has oil control properties. For matured skin or skin with pores, go for pore filling primers. If you do not wish to spen a fortune on these primers then you can opt for aloe very gel as well which help your makeup to last longer and also forms a hydrating barrier between your skin and the makeup products.
Step #3: Base & Concealing
When you are going for a natural look, avoid full coverage foundation and go for light weight, tinted moisturizers which will just even out your skin tone. If you have oily skin or you live in a hot and humid climate, then, you can opt for a good powder foundation which is very light on the skin and gives you a subtle coverage. In case you have acne marks or dark circles then you can use a little bit of concealer to cover them up and set it with the same powder foundation. It is a wise idea to invest in your base makeup products as the cheap ones might break you out or won’t give you a long lasting effect.
Step #4: Eyes
Totally skip on your winged eyeliner and eye shadows if you want a natural look. Instead, curl your lashes and use a good mascara to add volume to your lashes. If you want to add a little more definition then you can tightline your eyes. You can find online tutorials and magazine articles with beauty tips for ladies in hindi that will teach you how to tightline easily.
Step#6: lips and cheeks
You can either use a tinted lip balm for sheer coverage with hydration. However, if you have pigmented lips then you can go for a lipstick which is a perfect nude shade for you and apply it. you can take the same lipstick on your finger tips and tap it on your cheeks to bend and work it like a blush.
