GRAND RAPIDS, Mich (WOTV) - Do you have blemishes, under eye circles, or dark spots? We all do! Follow these steps to get a flawless face using natural makeup.
Start with a clean slate: For the best makeup application, starting with a clean face is a must. An exfoliating cleanser gets deep into pores and remove any dead skin.
Don't forget to moisturize: Moisturizing is not only the greatest defense against lines and wrinkles, but it also ensures your makeup will blend beautifully. Try one with an SPF for maximum skin protection.
Cover imperfections: Take care of those little imperfections by using a light concealer to cover anything you don't like. Your skin will look and feel flawless.
Create a natural flush: Cream blushes are perfect for naturally pink cheeks. Using this type of blush will give your skin a certain glow and not just "sit on top" of skin. Using warmer tones of pink and peach look more natural and will illuminate your skin.
Make your eyes stand out naturally: Using an eyeshadow palette of light gold or taupe will make your eyes sparkle without looking like you're even wearing makeup. Also try brown eyeliner to soften eyes. You will not believe how much this minimal makeup makes your eyes pop. Don't forget mascara!
Have kissable lips: Red lips are in, but when you're doing natural makeup let yourself shine through. A sheer gloss is all you need to complete the look. You will look so natural and gorgeous, you'll want to kiss heavy makeup goodbye.
