Natural Makeup Looks That Are Actually Natural ...

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

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.
