There are some days when we're feeling pretty extra and want blue eyeshadow, neon lipstick and all the glitter. (Not necessarily at the same time.) Then there are other days where we're feeling more low-key and want to look like ourselves — just a little enhanced. That's when we strive for a natural makeup look.

It's about looking like the best version of yourself. Read on for some of the best new natural-finish products to try now.

This vegan concealer offers buildable medium coverage, but chances of a cake-face situation are low. The hybrid serum formula delivers skin care benefits and ensures an imperceptible finish.
