First things first, your skin routine is the most important part. Your skincare regimen doesn’t have to be lengthy but it should consist of the basics which include: face wash, eye cream, moisturizer, and sunscreen. A good face mask once a week won’t hurt either.
Glossier is a new brand that mostly advertises for young girls and young adults but nonetheless works the same on us all. They provide praise-worthy products a light, non-cakey face powder that makes you feel as if you have nothing on your skin, a lightweight concealer that has the perfect amount of coverage for those dark under eye circles, and their infamous brow tint that darkens the hairs on your eyebrows for a more natural, but still polished look. Other brands offer similar products so experiment to find what works best for you.
Bare Minerals is also an extremely great brand for this look. Their products are affordable and trusted all around the world as they have been around for a while. Bare Minerals is famous mostly for their amazing mineral powder foundations which makes your skin look great and leaves an amazing finish. So, the key to this so called “natural” look is just a light or medium coverage concealer, a great BB cream or light/medium coverage foundation or powder, a little rouge on the cheeks, and a cute glossy pink lip or if you’re feeling daring, a bold red lip. Any matte lip will do if you are going out at night and liner and mascara are always optional for day or night. Just be sure to use a light stroke when applying liner and that your eyelashes don’t look like spider legs.
And that does it ladies! A simple, timely, affordable look that will never go out of style.
