No matter what the trends are, natural beauty is always in. If done correctly, the “no makeup” look is great for interviews, first dates, and pretty much any family get together. A little sincerity goes a long way when it comes to making an impression. Here are a few ways to really amp up your look for that extra boost of confidence:
Your natural beauty does matter…
As much as we like to think that makeup is what makes us beautiful, what’s underneath the foundation is equally important for achieving that true level of radiance. Now that winter is finally starting to dwindle away it’s time to start seriously rethinking the way we’ve been handling our skincare routine.
Niki’s got a great point about keeping the skin hydrated. Over time our skin can become used to products like daily moisturizer and acne wash. Instead of going on a splurge for new products, reset your skin with a deep cleansing mask. Another great way to prep your skin for warmer days is a facial.
Beauty comes from within…
So often do women primp their face to perfection, only to destroy the entire thing with an overwhelming heap of blush. Ladies, please stop doing this! After all, the entire point of the “no makeup” look is to look as if you’re not wearing makeup at all!
As James suggests, applying your blush before your foundation gives the illusion of a glow from within. To really take this tip to the next level, use a gel or cheek stain blush with a light coverage foundation such as a tinted moisturizer.
They say your eyes are the windows to your soul…
There’s nothing like boxy brows to turn a beautiful “no makeup” selfie into a total catastrophe. If you use a wet brow filler such as a cream or pencil for your everyday look, consider switching up your game for a dry powder or even a tinted brow gel to keep things in place.
