Natural Makeup Tutorial

Sunday, November 23, 2014

Recently, I've been opting for makeup that looks more subtle and basic. My aim was to create something that was easy to apply and didn't take a huge amount of effort, but at the same time made my skin look radiant and enhanced my natural beauty. I've settled on this look, which I find is really pretty and minimal.

I started by using the Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer, focusing on any redness and blemishes. This product is {really} pigmented and creamy, feeling luxorious on your skin. It blends really well and I find that it stays put throughout the day, which is an added bonus. For just over £4, this is a great concealer and I enjoy using it on a day-to-day basis. Since there are only 4 different shades, I often have to mix them together.

I then powdered my skin using the MUA Pressed Powder, since I wanted my makeup to last for as long as possible. With a silky texture and a colour that matches my skin at the moment, this is great to use to set your makeup. It is only £1, which is a bargain for a product that works so well in my opinion. My only issue with this powder is that the colour range is quite limited and the lightest shade is often too dark for my skin.

For my eyes, I applied the Benefit Creaseless Cream Shadow in the shade bikini-tini. This eyeshadow base is a shimmery champagne colour, which I find actually looks {really} pretty on its own. It lasts for a long time when I wear it and doesn't crease, as well as being neutral and versatile. Despite being more expensive than the other products, it is definitely worth trying.

Mascara, for me, makes my eyes look more open and awake. I often want something that makes my eyelashes darker and longer, but isn't too dramatic for everyday wear. I have found that Maybelline's Great Lash Mascara does this perfectly for me. The brush is tiny, making it easy to be accurate and ensure every lash is covered, which I really like. It rarely clumps or smudges and lasts for quite a while, despite not being waterproof.

After that, I applied my blusher. A firm favourite of mine is the Bourjois Cream Blusher in the shade 03. It's a neutral pink with a bit of shimmer which looks like my natural blush colour. This product blends really well and can also be built up to make a more bold look if that's what you desire. After applying this blusher, it leaves me looking rosy and flushed throughout the day. Also, after using this almost everyday for what must be a year, I still haven't hit pan!

Finally, I used one of Avon's Colour Trend Lipsticks. In the shade Coral Wisp, this lipstick is really natural and looks like an improved version of my lips. It is creamy and smooth, making my lips feel moisturised. I really like this lipstick and I feel like it is one I could wear everyday.

So this is my natural makeup tutorial, which I have to say I wear quite often, especially on the weekends. I hope you liked this post and feel free to let me know any other natural makeup items down in the comments. Thanks for reading and I'll see you soon!
