3 Ways to Rock Natural Makeup
When it comes to nailing the natural look, one assumes no make-up is key. This is definitely not the case! Make-up can be used to enhance your features and provide great coverage. When beginning to achieve a natural look, it’s important to start with a freshly washed and moisturized face. Having a nice, clean base to start with is key.
After cleaning your skin, apply good moisture to your face. Try opting for a tinted lotion that blends easily with your skin tone. BB creams are great because they provide a light tint, moisture, and include SPF!
Be sure to apply your concealer to areas that seem discolored or dab on any blemishes. For dark circles, swipe the concealer under your eyes, then pat with a finger to blend. If your skin tends to be more on the oily side don’t freak out! Just apply an oil-absorbing powder to your skin moving the brush in a circular motion on your face before applying any foundation.
After your face is prepped, use an eye-brow gel to smooth away any stray hairs and enhance the color. You can also opt for a bronzer on your cheeks for a modest, sun-kissed glow. Lip balm to smooth out your lips and you are good to go!
Be Yourself During Interviews
