I remember talking with a few of my friends about make up. Then one of the lady’s husband came into the conversation. He listened for a little bit and the look on his face said it all. He had no idea how much went into the ‘natural’ make up look. Yep, we, girls, know that there is very rarely such a thing as true ‘natural’ look that is without some kind of make up. Boys have no idea just how many products are out there and how many different ways there are to achieve what we call ‘the natural makeup look’.
In this post I will show you one of the easiest ways you can get natural make up look with very little effort and very little time. If you are on the go and just need a fast makeup that will look like you spent hours upon and yet it only took you just a few minutes, then you will find this post useful. I made this post for those of you who love the natural make up look but also wish there was a faster way to get there. Well, there is. I have discovered a pretty fast way of getting a natural look with really just a few minutes of effort.
I personally like to have at least 3 routines for natural make up. In this post I will list them all in order of fast to medium to a little longer. All three methods are really fast but if you are truly in a hurry, then the first method will be just perfect for you.
Method 1 - the fastest
In the picture you see above, the only three things I did was put on this sunscreen, the foundation by Dr. Schrammek Regulating Care Blemish Balm Classic, and this blush here. That is all.
The trick is that you make sure you apply the foundation not just on your nose, cheeks, forehead and etc, but also under your eyes and on your eye lids. When you are putting it under your eyes do not rub it around. Rather, dab just a little bit of this foundation under your eyes in a patting motion. This really helps the foundation to stick well and also does not irritate the skin under your eyes. Dabbing just a tiny bit under the eyes really makes a difference.
When you apply the same foundation on your eyelids and all over there where you would normally apply eye shadow, what you are creating are natural shadows and light areas on your eyes. This foundation does not irritate the eyes at all. It is one of the best foundations that I have ever discovered, thanks to my cosmetologist.
You can apply it however you like on your eyelids. I just put some on my finger and spread it all around there. What you see in the above picture is the result of natural contouring. The foundation automatically covers any redness while simultaneously creating shadows where the eyelids fold. And under the brows because the skin is stretched naturally there and has no folds highlights appear from the foundation.
Totally remarkable and fast way of getting natural highlights and shadows.
Then apply a blush. I recommend this blush.
Total time it took: under 5 minutes.
That is it. No one in a million years will be able to guess that you did not spend at least 30 minutes on the above pictured look. In fact, some people who do not know about make up might think you’ve nothing on at all. I did not even do my eyebrows in the above picture.
This is the foundation I used in the above picture. It is absolutely phenomenal. Does not irritate your eyes and also helps with skin irritations to balance them. Absolutely can’t live without this foundation. Check out this post here to learn more about this foundation.
This blush is absolutely phenomenal. I love the pink color and that it looks really natural.
Method 2 - second fastest
The second method is exactly like the first one above with the exception that I filled in my eyebrows. The look is very natural as you can see from the above picture of my eyebrow, but there are no more bold or missing hairs spots. I used this pencil here. It really works on making the brows look natural and yet filled out. It is matte color so that it doesn’t shine or cause you to show that you have eyebrows drawn in.
One the beautiful things about this eyebrow pencil is that it has the brush on the one end and the pencil on the other end. It is very easy to bring out just a little bit of the pencil so that you keep most of it inside and protected. This way you don’t waste any of it and prevent it from breaking.
The brush on the other side is just great to smooth out the brow after you are done or also when you start to see clearly the line. Makes it so much easier to work with the brows when they are brushed. And this helps you to only use one tool. It saves time as well since you just flip it over and you have yourself the other tool. Absolutely love this pencil.
Method 3 - third fastest
In this third method the only thing I added on was the eye shadow on top of the foundation. The eye shadow I used is this one.
I absolutely love how natural it looks. It is very gentle, easy to apply, and lasts you all day. When I want a fairy like make up or a very natural look, I use this eye shadow product. It also comes with blush so that you have everything you need in that one little box. Really makes it all fast and easy.
In the above picture I used the very pink one from the picture below of the eye shadow kit. Just a few brushstrokes and I am done.
Another nice thing about this all-in-one eye shadow and blush kit is that on the back of it they show you a way to apply the eye shadow. Never hurts to see what they offer as advice.
Side Note Advice
I highly recommend using this brow gel from Anastasia Beverly Hills. This gel really seals the brows in place and lasts you all day. I have even taken naps with this gel on my brows and woke up with them being still in tact.
I hate the thought of not knowing if a hair is out of line and my entire look is damaged because my brows might be disorderly on my face. Since I can’t see what they are doing there, I love using this product to guarantee that they behave all day.
This gel really works well. It is clear and does not smudge your brow make up or the surrounding make up on your face. It is also light so you don’t feel it on your face at all.
If you like keeping your eye brows in check and not having to worry about them, then you will love using this product.
