No matter what age or skin type, all women love that natural makeup look. It’s that flawless skin look that makeup artists can spend an hour or more perfecting, but the good news is you can create your own impeccable, ‘no makeup’ makeup look in under 5 minutes. Here’s how:1. Ditch the primer, concealer and foundation
If you really want to save time in the morning forget about the primer, concealer and foundation and make the switch to BB Cream. In a nutshell, a BB Cream is a combination skincare and makeup product designed to provide natural makeup coverage with added skincare benefits. It’s the ultimate versatile all-rounder and it functions as a primer, moisturiser and foundation all in one convenient tube that is designed to give your skin a healthy glow and a dewy finish. And as a bonus, many BB creams also provide SPF coverage.
For best results, apply BB Cream to the back of your hand and then use a BB brush to apply the product on your face, starting at the T-zone and working out. If you have any problem areas such as dark circles under your eyes, add a little extra BB Cream or dot on some concealer.2. Work some eyebrow magic
To give your eyebrows a little more definition and make them look perfectly manicured, just grab an eyebrow brush and an eyebrow gel or powder that’s close to your eyebrow shade. Lightly dip the brush into the gel or powder and blend it evenly over your eyebrows. Quickly brush your eyebrows upwards following its contour. You’ll achieve a natural looking definition with just some light strokes of the brush.3. Define those eyes
Applying eyeliner really helps to define your eyes and it’s not as difficult as you may think. Just choose a creamy or waxy formula so that it’s easier to glide on your eyelids. We think the best type of eyeliner to use is a pencil eyeliner because these are just about as simple as you can get. If you choose a liquid eyeliner and don’t have rock-steady hands, you’ll probably end up with a wavy line - so if you’re just starting out, definitely stick with the pencil. Simply start at the inner corner of your upper eyelid and then in a steady motion glide along the eyelid close to your lashes for the perfect natural look.4. Add a natural flush
To achieve a healthy-looking skin, add some colour to your cheeks. To achieve the natural look, choose a shade that is not too far from your skin tone. For light and fair skin tones, a light pink shade will do the trick. For darker skin tones, a light tan shade is the secret. With a good blush brush, blend it upwards from the apples of your cheeks to the high part of your cheekbones. Don't forget to smile while doing so - that will balance the shade on both cheeks (and who wants to frown while making yourself more beautiful anyway?).5. Luscious lips
Complete your natural look by adding colour to your lips. A good lip gloss and a light or sheer lipstick are easier to apply than a dark lipstick since you don’t have to be super-precise. A dark lipstick will also defeat the purpose of achieving a natural look. A lip gloss will give the shine that will make you younger looking. Nude, pink or peach lipstick shades will look great for light and fair skin. Shades of brown will look great for dark skin. Simply apply the lipstick by following the shape of your lips (do this while your lips are slightly open). Blend it in with a good lip brush or a fingertip. Finish it with a quick sweep of the lip gloss.
