Learn how to make makeup look natural

Women love to wear makeup in order to enhance their natural beauty, but when we use too much or apply it incorrectly, we end up looking overdone and not natural at all. It is important to know how to make makeup look natural in order to achieve that effortless look. The first important step is to choose a foundation that matches your exact skin shade. In order to find the right color, do a test patch on your skin. If it disappears into your skin and you have trouble telling where the foundation starts and where your skin ends, then you have found the right color. You can also opt for a tinted moisturizer instead of foundation if you are looking for a more natural and sheer look. Using a cream blush is great when learning how to make makeup look natural because it blends more easily into the skin as opposed to powder blush, which instead sits on top of the skin and can give one that cakey look.

When applying lip liner, only apply to the innermost part of your lips, lining the top and bottom but avoid highlighting the entire mouth area, as doing so will make your lips look drawn in. When learning how to make makeup look natural it is important to avoid the use of dark colors, especially on the lips and eyes, and instead go for more sheer and natural looking colors that blend into your skin. Use a brown mascara instead of a deep black, and only line the inner rim of your lower lash line with the slightest touch of black liner. Instead of applying a heavy lipstick, instead opt for a sheer gloss or tinted lip balm, which will give your lips a burst of color without all the extra drama.
