While I like to look at fun beauty looks, I am a big fan of the “natural” makeup look. There are days to wear funky eyeshadows and fun mascara, but I believe every day should be a natural makeup day! Via Real Simple, here are easy ways to get the “barely there” look with mark. cosmetics.
Next, moisturize and even out skin tone with a tinted lotion like Get a Tint Tinted Moisturizer Lotion SPF 15 or Get a Tint Shimmer Tinted Moisturizer Lotion SPF 15.
Conceal any flaws with a pigment-rich concealer like Conceal For Real Long-Lasting Hookup Concealer. Hide visible breakouts by dabbing concealer and blending; and for dark under-eye circles, swipe the wand under eyes and blend with fingers.
Use powder if you have oily skin. Take a brush and swirl Matte-nificent Oil-Absorbing Powder in a circular motion.
Pick a cream blush to get a warm cheek color. Warm peaches or pinks give a natural blush. Try Just Pinched Instant Blush Tint: apply a darker pink with fingers and blend out in circles, and then use a lighter pink on cheekbones to highlight.
Apply soft, brownish eyeshadow that is slightly darker than your skin. Brush into creases and lower lashes. Try the i-mark Custom Pick Eyeshadow in Minx or Tiki. Brighten eyes with i-mark Custom Pick Eyeshadow in Biscotti and apply to center of the lids, the brow bones, and the inner corner of the eyes.
For extra definition, lightly dot a soft gray or brown eye pencil between the top lashes. Try No Place to Run Longwear Eyeliner in Foxy Brown or Steely Gaze.
Subtly amp up lips with a tint that matches your lips exactly. Use your fingertips to apply and press color onto lips. Start from the center and then blend out. Try Lip Click SPF 15 Color Shine Lipstick for a sheer lip color.
Enhance lashes with two coats of mascara. Apply Lash All You Want High-Volume Mascara in Black or in Black/Brown to the top lashes. For extra boost, take an eyeliner brush and grab a bit of mascara from the wand and apply to the roots of the bottom lashes.
