Here’s every single trick we know for ‘I woke up like this’ natural-looking makeup

Barely-there, natural

makeup

is a look countless celebrities have been wearing in recent months. But the au-natural, I’m-just-genetically-blessed, no makeup-makeup look takes more work than you think.

Don't forget to look at my other projects (if you have the time of course):

* Redesigned DigitalStore – recommended! Huge collection of discounts.
* Books for women (nice)

– no comments 🙂
* Get your Ex back… but I hope it won’t be needed for you
* Dating and romance – proved on myself 😉
* Body detox reviews, well, just in case. Cool reviews and how not to get caught in trap with bad products!
* Build a stable passive income – worked for me also, but you should be patient. Time is on your side, though.

And if you’ve followed numerous tutorials and still can’t manage to nail a gorgeous glowy base, Becca’s Global Makeup Ambassador

Nikki Wolff

, may have the answer.

“If you’re layering a

primer

,

foundation

and

highlighter

, but it always turns out cakey, it’s because you’re not using a light enough touch.”

“Makeup artists use very little product and lightly apply it to the skin, blending and blending as we go. It’s how we can create a glowing base that looks like it’s still skin.”

So if you’re ready to nail that ‘I woke up like this’ glow – then follow Nikki’s advice along with GLAMOUR’s natural makeup guide to make your skin sing…

    Can a pigment-lover fall for a natural sheen?


Quick trick for fair skin:

Try

face tan

. This glorious invention will instantly warm your complexion and make dark circles and blemishes way less obvious before you even have to pick up a makeup brush.

1. Wash

Wash your face using a gentle soap and flannel. Don’t use an

exfoliant

as it will bring out the redness in your complexion. A gentle

cleanser

such as

Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Cleanser

(£15) works well to softly buff the skin clean.

2. Moisturiser

Apply a pea-sized amount all over the face; you want to make sure your skin is soft and hydrated so your makeup sits right but

isn’t

greasy.

Sisley’s Moisturiser with Cucumber

(£104) is a brilliant lightweight day cream which absorbs straightaway, making it perfect for priming the face.

3. Foundation

If you have clear skin, use a tinted moisturiser to warm-up the complexion. We love

Estee Lauder’s DayWear

(£43) as it adapts to your natural skin colour when you apply it – the microbeads are seriously magic. If, however, you prefer more coverage, apply foundation but

only

to the places you feel are problematic or over pigmented.

Lancome’s Teint Miracle

(£29.50) will provide excellent coverage without the cakey finish. Whichever you use, remember to be sparse and blend, blend, blend.

4. Concealer

Taking a small brush, we like

Mac’s fiber flat brush number 195

(£19), apply concealer sparingly to problem areas. For

dark circles

, swipe the brush under your eyes, then pat with a finger to blend.

5. Powder

If you suffer from shine, use a large brush and powder that matches your skin tone to dust all over. Try

bareMinerals Mineral Veil finishing powder

(£21) which will absorb any excess oil. Do not use a

bronzer

, this look is all about making the most of your natural colouring.

6. Blush

    Oily skin? These are the best foundations for combating shine minus the cake

    Keep calm and combat shine.

Pick out a cream blush that is soft in colour and as close to your natural ‘blush’ as possible.

Bourjois Little Round Pot Cream blushes

(£7.99) offer a great range of natural colours that are easy to blend. Apply your chosen product to the apples of your cheeks, exactly where you would naturally flush, and blend until you have a very subtle colour. Add a little of the cream blush to your lips to enhance their natural pigment.


7. Eyes

With the barely-there makeup look,

curling the eyelashes

can be enough (

Shu Uemera’s set

are unbeatable (£20)) but if you do like a little more definition, using a thin-wand mascara comb right through the lashes, applying a maximum of two coats to each eye. For

blonde

lashes opt for brown mascara and for darker, you can stick with black. We suggest using

Clinique’s Naturally Glossy Mascara

(£17.50).

8. Eyebrows

It’s essential not to have a strong line, if you have very light brows or patches, blend a colour sparingly to give a little shape. Heavy eyebrows are one of the biggest giveaways of this look if done wrong.

Bobbi Brown’s Light Brow Kit

(£35), with its dual shadow, will allow you to apply as much or as little as you need.

9. Lips

The easy way to get a natural looking lip colour (without putting on any

lipstick

at all) is via exfoliation. Using a gentle scrub, like the ones from

Lush

(or if you’re not a fan of granules, try the

Wonder Drops from Fresh

, which does it mechanically) to remove dead skin cells and increase blood-flow. Follow with your favourite

lip balm

and your pout will be looking pristine, with a natural, healthy flush.
