There's a difference between wearing no makeup and wearing natural makeup, of course, but finding the balance is a delicate art. The natural makeup look isn't for everyone, and that's cool – but if you want a natural look that actually looks natural, unlike the faux natural looks you so often see in pictures, I think these gorgeous Instagrammers can offer up a few lovely examples.

1 A Hint of Red Lip
This is the perfect gloss of color. Look how the flush of red on the lips brightens everything else.
2 A Blush of Pink
A pinky-brown or pinky-beige or pinky-peach shade works every time.
3 Light on the Eye Shadow
Just a brush of subtle color, really.
4 Almost No Makeup
Keyword almost. Light coverage and mascara can make a lot of difference.
5 Just the Lashes
You can also go with just one bold statement – like your eyelashes.
6 Use Your Glasses
Larger frames can hide all kinds of things. Focus on your lips, your brows, and your hair. By the way, I am experiencing hair envy.
7 Some Subtle Color Blending
Keep it light and blend it well. It's that simple.
8 Find the Light
Dewy skin, glossy lips, and lightly flushed cheeks – perfect!
9 Focus on Your Eyes
Make your eyes and/or eyebrows the focal point, then keep everything else soft and natural.
10 Go for the Gloss
Oh, this is so gorgeous. Add a little liner on your lower lids and you're good to go.
11 Step out with Long but Natural-looking Lashes
Here's a different take on the eyelash tip. Wow, those lashes ...
12 Embrace Your Glow
Everything about this is fabulous. She is serving and making it look effortless.
13 Try a Little Light Contouring
Honestly, if you really do keep it light, you can pull off a natural look. Focus on your cheekbones, just like this beauty.
14 Take Inspiration from Another Era
Ooh, those brows, those lips, that hair!
15 Be a Little Bold with Your Lipstick
This peachy shade is so … ripe!
16 Create a Bit of a Blush
A light brush of blush on your cheeks will brighten your eyes and give your face definition.
17 Just a Little Liner
Well, and some light coverage, too, of course.
How do you define your own natural look? I stick with blush, mascara, and a light dusting of powder foundation, myself. Okay, and the eyebrows. Always with the eyebrows.
