The Natural Makeup Look! How To

natural makeup look
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

 

 

 

Glory Boon foundation has a new look!

Our liquid foundation has gotten a new look! I used to package them in pump dispensers, and although I loved them, I realized the pump would not fully dispense all the product.

These new bottles come with flip tops which makes it easier to dispense. You also get more product since there is no pump inserted into the bottle. Another great thing about these bottle is, you get to squeeze all the foundation, which in turn lets you get the most out of the product.

So far I love the new bottles, they have a nice natural feel to them. They are also recyclable, and reusable!

Natural “No Makeup” Look: How To

 

We all want that fresh “no makeup” look, but achieving this “flawless look” has it’s tricks. Here are some basic tips and tricks to apply makeup and get a natural, clean, no makeup look without the fuss!

1) Take care of your skin: Always remember when applying makeup, to get that fresh faced look, you have to make sure your skin is clean and hydrated! Remember to do your At Home Facials regularly, drink plenty of water, and eat tons of fresh fruits and veggies. This will provide the perfect canvas for your make up. Remember to exfoliate once a week to remove dead skin cells and smooth the skin.

2) Moisturize: Never apply makeup without moisturizing first, and always wait 5 minutes before applying foundation. Even if your skin is oily, you must moisturize, so try to find an oil free moisturizer, and don’t underestimate the power of facial serums!

3) Choose a good foundation: Shop around until you find a foundation that works for you. Make sure it’s not going to clog your pores. Your daily foundation should be feather light, you don’t want that heavy makeup look since we are going for a natural “no makeup” look. Finding the perfect shade is very important, test foundations on the jaw line and make sure it blends well. Apply your foundation with the right sponge, this will provide a flawless effect.  We love the Beauty Blender sponge, it’s easy to use and ensures perfect application and coverage, also check out Natural foundation with Aloe.

4) Conceal: Many of us have flaws that we need to cover, I can’t live without my Concealer! After you apply your foundation, if you need further coverage, choose a concealer that covers but doesn’t cake! Make sure to blend it well and apply in natural light. Don’t rub, just dab and dab until it’s blended. We love Heal and Conceal because it’s natural, light, and blends to fit your skin tone! You can’t go wrong with that!

5) Use only 2 shades of eyeshadow: Use earthy tones, browns and golds, and always apply a primer. Use a little mascara, wipe the wand with a tissue if necessary to avoid clumps. We love Leighton Meester’s fresh “no makeup” look.

 

6) Don’t apply lipstick: Use a Lip Tint or gloss, no lipstick is necessary for this natural look. All you need is a hint of color. Tip: Provide the perfect canvas for your lips and exfoliate with a Lip Scrub!

7) Use bronzer as blush: This will set the tone for a naturally sun kissed glow, perfect for that natural look.

8) Well groomed eyebrows: No matter what you put on your face, if your eyebrows are not well groomed, it wont look good. Eyebrows play an important role in making the face look clean and well kept. Find a professional to groom your brows and learn how to paint them in. Tip: Use a shadow to paint them in. Pencils are to harsh and will take away from the natural look.

Always remember to take care of your skin, use SPF when going outside and drink plenty of water!
