The "No Makeup" Makeup Look
Hey girls! Today I will be telling how I accomplish a "no makeup" makeup look, which is basically a natural makeup look. This is the look I use for every day and you can dress it up for a night out, everything should be neutral colored according to your own specific skin tone.
To start, use a foundation as close to your natural skin tone as possible. For the lightest application use a wedge sponge and blend from the center of the face out. If heavier coverage is desired use a synthetic foundation brush and layer extra foundation where needed; make sure to go back and forth with the brush in the same direction of your facial hair. You can also use your fingers if you do not desire using a tool. The heat of your fingers will help the makeup to blend into skin. Next you will need two concealers, one for blemishes and one for under-eye darkness, you may not need both.The under-eye concealer should be a shade or two lighter then your skin tone and the blemish concealer should match your skin tone or the foundation your going to use. Use a small brush to apply under your eye and in the inner corner. Use an even smaller brush when covering a blemish so that the coverage is directly on the bump. blend the under-eye concealer by patting it gently in with your ring finger. Next use a big fluffy brush to apply a translucent or skin tone correct powder all over the face, I like to use a lighter one under the eyes for added brightness and a matching color for the rest of my face. A nude blush is great for natural looks and if your doing a heavy, dark eye or lip color. But for this look I like to use a color that pops a little off of skin. Apply your blush onto the apples of your cheeks and blend slightly downward and out. Now you can put a clear or tinted gloss on your lips and the final step is hair matching mascara applied only on the top lashes.
