To achieve a natural flawless ‘no makeup’ look, good skin care is imperative!! Keep skin well hydrated and moisturized using a good moisturiser and hydrating serum, also ensure that skin is well exfoliated at least once a week!
Before any makeup application, apply a good moisturiser and primer. Ensure that the primer is suited for ur exact skin type and condition. Good primers that I have worked with include Smashbox and Loreal infallible primer.
Using a damp beauty blender ‘push’ foundation into the skin. Once u have applied the foundation, use a concealer to blend out blemishes. Your fingers can serve as a good tool as the warmth of your skin blends out concealers much more easily.
Prep the eye area with a good eye base, NYX has affordable eye base pots that really emphasizes any eyeshadow pigment! Using a blending brush, and a ‘windscreen wiper’ motion, blend out a dark brown shadow across the crease. The corners can be darkened by building up shadow, but remember, it’s all about blending, blending, blending!
Groom brows by using a brow mousse, an easy alternative would be hairspray on an old mascara brush, this will keep brow hairs in shape all day!
Open up the eyes using mascara! Maybelline and Loreal telescopic are 2 of my favourite brands.
Smoke the bottom lash line by taking the same brown eyeshadow and blending it out on the lower lash line.
Use a cream blush to create that ‘pinch me’ look on the apples of the cheeks.
Lastly finish off the look using either a matte or gloss nude lipstick! My favourite local and affordable brands would be Mac, Loreal, and Essence.
