How To Achieve A Natural Makeup Look
From mermaid locks to a bright, brilliant pout, there’s no shortage of beauty trends that will really make you stand out. But sometimes, for those more laid back days, less is more. When you don’t have time in the morning to perfect your bold brows or your cat eye liner, natural makeup does the trick. There are a range of simple makeup looks you can try which will enhance your natural beauty.
Before reaching for your makeup, it’s important to start with clean skin. Cleansing and moisturising your skin before application will help your products blend more easily, which is essential when creating a natural makeup look.
Start by cleansing your face to remove any dirt or oil and rid yourself of any impurities with a product like L'Oréal Paris Fine Flowers Cleansing Milk. Its delicate formula combines extracts of rose and jasmine and specifically designed to soothe and smooth your skin.
Toner is specially formulated to reduce the appearance of pores. This is particularly important when applying the ‘less is more’ makeup technique, as smaller pores means less makeup is required. The Fine Flowers Toner is perfect – it invigorates the skin and eliminates the last traces of impurities for a perfectly cleansed complexion.
Finish up your skin prep regime with a light moisturiser such as the L'Oréal Paris Revitalift Day Cream Light Texture moisturiser. Your skin will feel more hydrated and toned, giving you a beautiful, radiant base on which to build your makeup.
Achieving your natural makeup look
Now your skin is prepped and primed, you’re ready to begin applying your makeup. The natural look is all about finding the right balance between glowing skin and the perfect foundation application.
Step 1: Highlighter
A highlighter is the perfect way to achieve your no-makeup makeup look. We can’t get enough of Glow Mon Amour Highlighting Drops. The highly pigmented liquid highlighter comes in two shades – Bellini and Champagne – and has been designed to give you a healthy, natural-looking glow.
If you’re looking to even your skin tone while maintaining an ‘I woke up like this’ vibe, apply the highlighter under your foundation for a natural-looking glow. Simply place a few concentrated drops on your cheeks and forehead, then blend seamlessly for a luminous glow.
Step 2: Foundation-meets-skin tint
Wake up your skin with a skin tint that does the job of a foundation, while remaining oh-so-natural. The Bonjour Nudista Skin Tint gives you a fresh with a skin-loving formula – enriched with apricot, coconut and shea, providing hydration for up to 24-hours and protecting your skin. Simply apply evenly all over your face, and people will believe you woke up like this!
Step 3: Bronzer
For a year-round tan without the damage of UV, a bronzer is the way to go. The Back to Bronze Matte Bronzing Powder gives you a gentle bronze without the shimmer (which is a big giveaway that you’re wearing makeup.)
Our matte powder is super-buildable, which means you can customise your bronze level with ease. Apply the bronzer over your cheeks, chin and forehead for a glowing look. For a more sculpted finish, apply to the hollows of your cheeks and under the jawline.
So, there you have it – a beauty regime that’s as simple as one-two-three. Now you’ve achieved your natural makeup look, it’s time to turn heads with your radiance. Don’t worry – your secret’s safe with us.
