Makeup pros have fallen in love with softer, subtler looks and the beauty of more natural looking makeup is endless. It’s much less time-consuming, it requires way less products, and it promotes the overall health of your skin. With just a little moisturizer and primer, a bit of concealer and powder, a swipe of mascara and brow gel to subtly define your eyes, and a layer of glossy lipstick, you’ll see the no-makeup makeup look is easy to nail. If you need a little more guidance, check out our natural makeup tutorial with L’Oréal Paris Canadian Makeup Artist & Expert Jodi Urichuk and this barely-there look will be your new go-to.
Steps to Prepping Your Skin for Natural Makeup:
Step 1: Get glowing skin by moisturizing with something that will add hydration and keep skin healthy long-term, like L’Oréal Paris Revitalift Cicacream.
Step 2: Wait for your moisturizer to absorb, and then prep your skin for your natural makeup look with a glow-enhancing primer, like L’Oréal Paris Studio Secrets Magic Lumi Light Infusing Primer. Apply it all over your face and down to your jawline.
Steps for Coverage:
Step 1: For anywhere that requires extra coverage, like blemishes, under eye circles or areas that need colour-correcting, apply L’Oréal Paris Infallible 24H Fresh Wear Foundation. Focus on places like your nose, chin and forehead, especially if your skin tends to be oily.
Step 2: Set your foundation and add extra coverage by applying a powder with a fluffy brush to keep it light. Add an extra layer if you want to add even more coverage, but try to keep it soft, in keeping with your natural makeup.
Steps for Subtly-Enhanced Eyes:
Step 1: Start by adding texture and colour to your brows with L’Oréal Paris Brow Stylist Boost & Set Brow Mascara. Brush the hairs upwards to mimic the way they naturally grow, and be sure to only apply a light coat.
Step 2: Add a soft coat of L’Oréal Paris Voluminous Lash Paradise Mascara in either brown or black to your lashes. Add a second coat if you want to add a little extra volume.
Steps for Lips:
Step 1: If your lips aren’t as smooth as you’d like them to be, apply a lip mask and gently wipe it off with a damp makeup pad or a makeup-remover wipe.
Step 2: Apply a coat of lipstick in a soft, almost-nude colour, like L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Shine Lipstick in Glossy Fawn. Again, keep it light for that natural makeup look.
The key to natural makeup is to keep it soft and subtle, but know that if you want to kick it up a notch, you can always swap out that nude lip for a red one, or add a liquid line to your eyes. But remember that sticking with an overall no-makeup makeup look will keep you looking both effortless and on-trend.
