With the heat soaring higher every day, It isn’t advisable to be putting a lot of makeup (Unless you stay indoors) as most of it would melt away as soon as you start sweating under the sun.
A natural makeup look is a good choice for summer and if you actually don’t like putting a lot of makeup on. Here’s a quick checklist for you to get that natural “no makeup” makeup look!
One of the must haves for the natural make up look to work is good skin. Concentrate on perfecting your skin. Before you apply any makeup, you need to cleanse your face and apply a light moisturiser if your skin is dry.
Even Out Skin Tone
Even out your skin tone by using a tinted moisturiser or a BB cream. It is lighter than foundation. And you don’t have to worry about matching the colour to your skin tone, as the tinted moisturiser or BB cream is sheer.
Conceal Spots and Blemishes
Use a concealer to cover up any blemishes or spots you may have, as well as dark undereyes. It is essential for the concealer to match your skin as close as possible.
Powder and Blush
If your skin tends to get shiny, you can apply powder to help absorb the excess oil. Add a bit of colour to your cheeks. Opt for a cream blush than powder blush as it gives your skin a more dewy look.
The key is too be light handed. For eyes, opt for a shade of brown a bit darker than your skin tone and apply it to the crease and lower lash line. Blend it well. If you prefer lining your eyes than eye shadow, go for a dark brown eyeliner than black. To finish off, use mascara.
Opt for a tinted lip balm that matches your lips and apply lightly and blend if required.
