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.
This is the perfect gloss of color. Look how the flush of red on the lips brightens everything else.
A pinky-brown or pinky-beige or pinky-peach shade works every time.
Just a brush of subtle color, really.
Keyword almost. Light coverage and mascara can make a lot of difference.
You can also go with just one bold statement – like your eyelashes.
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.
Keep it light and blend it well. It's that simple.
Dewy skin, glossy lips, and lightly flushed cheeks – perfect!
Make your eyes and/or eyebrows the focal point, then keep everything else soft and natural.
Oh, this is so gorgeous. Add a little liner on your lower lids and you're good to go.
Here's a different take on the eyelash tip. Wow, those lashes ...
Everything about this is fabulous. She is serving and making it look effortless.
Honestly, if you really do keep it light, you can pull off a natural look. Focus on your cheekbones, just like this beauty.
Ooh, those brows, those lips, that hair!
This peachy shade is so … ripe!
A light brush of blush on your cheeks will brighten your eyes and give your face definition.
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.
