The Natural Makeup Look! How To

A big thanks to my lovely model Julissa for letting me do her makeup for this natural makeup post!

I love makeup, but I hate looking overdone. Don’t get me wrong, it’s fun to play with different colors and have a cool look every now and then, but let’s get real, not everyone can walk out the door everyday looking like Lady Gaga. Who has the time?!

The prettiest kind of makeup for me, is the kind that let’s your own beauty shine through. Your everyday makeup routine should be easy to apply, and somewhat goof proof. I believe real confidence lies in the power of wearing your makeup and not letting the makeup wear you!

I have a very simple makeup routine that involves 5 products.

  1. Foundation
  2. Concealer
  3. Blush
  4. Lip tint
  5. Eyebrows

That is all. But first, let me say, you should take care of your skin. Drink plenty of water and exfoliate once a week.

What I used on the Model:

I applied natural liquid foundation with a flat top kabuki brush, and used a little heal and conceal concealer under her eyes. I then applied Ballet slippers mineral blush with a small angled brush, and a little hint of Nude lip butter and gloss on her lips. Her eyebrows were filled in with a brown eyeshadow and angled brush. Instead of mascara, we used an eyelash curler.

FYI: If you’re in a rush, skip the mascara! How many times have we poked ourselves with the mascara wand and ruined our makeup?! Not to mention raccoon eyes at the end of the day!

Tips: Always remember to apply your makeup with clean, hydrated skin. Well groomed eyebrows are a must!

Xoxo, Alex

  1. I love natural looking make up as well! My beauty routine in the summer is some concealer, eye primer, skin tone eye shadow, brown eye liner for a softer look, some pink blush, and sometimes some pink lipstick.
