Every teen girl knows that make-up should look natural, but that does not mean that it is worn that way. Make-up is fun, and a great way to express yourself, but often ignorance for how it should be applied, and what colors or tones to use lead to misuse, and unnatural looking application. The following is a look at how to get natural looking make-up:
First, you have to have a clean face. You will want to use an oil free cleanser, and make sure your face is dried well after washing.
Second, you want to apply a moisturizer to your face, preferably oil free once again. Apply all over, and let dry.
Third, use a brush or sponge to apply a thin, light layer of foundation. Some of the best foundations for a light, air whipped look are spray on foundations. You can spray them directly on the sponge, and then dap on the face. If you do not need a foundation because you have clear and even toned skin, consider tinting your moisturizer with just a touch of foundation.
Fourth, choose a concealer that is just a shade lighter than your foundation, and that is as close to your natural skin tones as possible, and use that concealer to hide dark under eye circles, blemishes, pimples, etc. Use a brush to apply it.
Fifth, after choosing the right color, lightly apply translucent powder over your whole face. This will act as a way to set the foundation and concealer so that it does not rub off as easily, and will stay all day.
Sixth, use a cream shadow in a neutral color. Use your finger to apply it over your entire lid, and be especially careful on the lash line. You will want to blend it well. You can later add a little color or shading to dress up the look for a night out, but for the natural look, choose a neutral color.
Seventh, choose a slightly darker shade of powder shadow to apply directly under the eye, but use a brush to apply it. This will help your eyes look brighter and larger. If you want to make them look even larger, consider a white eye liner on the bottom lid, or a light colored shadow in the corners of your eyes.
Eighth, add a lipstick or gloss that is just a shade or two darker than your natural lip color. Apply a lip balm first to make lips moist and supple.
Ninth, choose a blush that goes with your skin tone, and apply a little on the apples of your cheeks. Use a brush and blend it well so you look kissed by the sun, but not overly made up.
Tenth, use a mascara a shade or two darker than your natural lash color, and apply a nice, even coat. You want to make sure you do not get clumps, or use a color that is too dark or too light for your natural coloring.
