Lately, I’ve been sporting a more ‘natural’ look in preparation for summer just to enhance my facial features without full coverage makeup a touch of illuminator on the highest points of my cheeks and I’m good to go! I think during spring/summer months it’s always lovely to have a more light-weight feel to your makeup on the skin.
There are plenty of different no-makeup makeup styles, it’s really up to personal preference and how you want to customise your look to fit your look. It’s just about knowing what works best for you.
Here’s a product listing of what I use to achieve my version of the natural, radiant look.
for primer, I normally add a good layer of moisturiser, however, if I want a more boost of radiance to my skin I’ll mix in an illuminator.
I start with L.A. Girl’s Pro Concealer in the colour correcting shade to even out my skin tone. this makes the coverage process quicker as opposed to adding layers of foundation.
For coverage, I like to pinpoint my foundation on areas of my face that I feel needs a bit of it, using Stila’s Stay all day foundation.
for brightening under my eyes I dotted L.A. Girl’s HD Pro Concealer and buffed it upwards to give a seamless finish.
I set where needed with MAC’s MSF to help keep the glow throughout my skin. I do, sometimes add a highlight and contour powder to give back some dimension, though I recommend a hydrating facial spray to get rid of any powder residue.
lastly, on the skin, I highlighted with a cream illuminator. Any cream eyeshadow also works well, for more details on how I use a cream highlighter on my face makeup see my previous blog post.
this step is very optional, but I like to add a liner to my eyes without winging them out to give the appearance of bigger eyes.
I then add coats of mascara to lift my eyelashes.
This may sound out of the norm, but I like to place a little bit of L.A. Girl’s Colour Corrector on the centre of my lips, cheeks and nose for an ‘awake’ appearance. I love this product since it is orange and pink would be more forward on my skin, plus it is intended to even out dark so it naturally evens out my cheeks whilst adding colour.
