How to Nail the Natural Makeup Look in Seven Easy Steps

The natural makeup look is one that will always be in style. Regardless of your age, skin type, skin tone, or makeup preferences, a natural look comes off as effortless and subtle while enhancing your unrefined beauty all at once. At Feya Cosmetics, it’s our job to make you look and feel beautiful and confident—that’s why our experts are sharing seven easy steps to help you nail that natural makeup look.

  1. Start With Your Skin

    Every great look starts with taking care of your skin. To help make your face glow, begin with a hydrating face mask or a cleanser for moisturization, exfoliation, and protection. This prep step will not only keep your skin happy and healthy—it will also help enhance the effect of the steps to come.

  2. Build a Smooth Base With Primer

    Laying a smooth base creates that healthy, flawless look that you’re after, and using a primer is the best way to build it. Primer will smooth and fill your pores without clogging them like some thicker products might and boost the natural glow you gained from moisturizing. Find a primer that best fits your skin type and tone and go to work—your skin will look healthy, hydrated, and ready for anything.

  3. Add Some Light Coverage

    Instead of reaching for those thick, full-coverage foundations you might use for more high-maintenance looks, choose lighter options. Tinted moisturizers and BB (beauty balm) and CC (color-correcting) creams add extra hydration, shine control, and coverage light enough to highlight natural features such as freckles. Remember that BB creams usually provide more coverage, which can help disguise dark spots and redness but are heavier than the other alternatives.

  4. Conceal Remaining Blemishes

    Because of how light these layers are, you might still see some redness, dark spots, or other blemishes. A lightweight concealer will take care of those as well as dark circles. Use a pigment-rich concealer that matches your skin type and tone and cover up any problem areas. Remember not to use too much—apply with a ring finger or concealer brush.

  5. Tweak With Powder, Blush, Contour, and Bronzer

    If your skin gets shiny or loses some of its glow, now is the time to make some adjustments. A warm peach or pink cream blush can also add a natural-looking flush to your cheeks.

  6. Enhance Your Good Looks With Brow, Lash, and Lip Work

    Your skin is the star of the natural makeup look, but a supporting cast can only help. Add some flare to your eyebrows with some smudge-proof brow gel and brush them into place. To open up your eyes without them looking too heavy, curl your lashes and finish with mascara. And make your lips pop with a little bit of lipstick—be sure to blot off any excess with a tissue.
