Tips for Natural Looking Makeup

Achieving a natural look with makeup can be more difficult than getting a made up, formal one. You do not want to the look to be too dark, too light or cakey. Natural make-up requires a lot of skill and patience.

2. Concealer

Use concealer to hide any dark spots, dark circles, fine lines and acne spots. It will help you to achieve a flawless and even skin tone.

3. Foundation

Now apply a little bit of foundation that suits your skin. Most women use liquid foundation but you use the one that suits you. These foundations are easy to blend so you can easily create an even look. Also, to get that perfect natural makeup look use the right type of brush or beauty blender.

4. Blusher

There are different kinds of blushes available in the market. For a natural look, you can either use cream or powder blush for the perfect result. They are easier to blend, and in case you apply more than the required amount, you can easily blend it. Use pink or peach undertone for the perfect nude look.

5. Neutral eye shadows

For a nude look, use neutral colored eye shadows on your lid. Go with a just a shade darker than your skin color. Anything darker will create a dramatic effect that does not look natural. 

Above are five steps that you can use for creating a nude or natural look.

1. Fluff brush

This brush can work for all sorts of finishing. You can use the large fluff brush by applying the product angularly against your eye brow for highlighting. Use a small sized fluff brush to apply any color just at the inner corner of the eye.

2. Smudge brush

Smudge brush is the number one key to blend your smoky eye makeup. These brushes have shorter and muskier bristles. Apply the eye pencil underneath your lower lash line. Use the smudge brush to blend.

3. Liner brush

A liner brush is a must have. These brushes are slender and have hard bristles. They are too stiff to use for regular shadow makeover. These stiff brushes help in applying your gel liner accurately.
