There are women who are too busy to spare hours on doing their makeup look while others are simply not fond of using too many cosmetic products on their face. Whether you’re the first type or the latter, the beauty of natural makeup is that you can flaunt it regardless of your makeup preference.
You don’t need too many products in your vanity stash just to perfect this look! In this article, we will teach you how to achieve fresh, youthful-looking natural makeup look with foundation and lipstick only.
Perfecting your Canvas with Lightweight Foundation
The key is for the overall makeup look is to appear natural and feel natural. Do not worry on having to invest in a foundation with very heavy coverage. Look for a foundation that nourishes and hydrates – something to keep your skin glowing all day.
Start with a thin and even layer and build up coverage only on the areas that need some concealing. Celebrity makeup artist Ermahn Ospina advises, "By applying five dots of foundation—one each on your cheeks, forehead, chin, and neck—and distributing outward in circular motions using a foundation brush will give you a flawless result."
The Versatility of Lipstick
Perfecting a quick and easy natural makeup look is absolutely doable even if you only have one shade of lipstick with you! Whether you have your classic red, coral or pink lipstick, it can help you bring a touch of color to your look. The secret is to apply it with a light hand.
- For the cheeks – swatch the lipstick at the back of your hand and gently warm it up with your fingers. Lightly dab it on the apples of your cheeks and work your way to the temples for a natural-looking flush.
- Natural lip color – for the trendy “bitten lips” look, take your lipstick and apply it only on the center of your lips. Gently pucker up and use your finger to slowly blend the color out for a natural, gradient look.
