Most women want makeup to enhance their best features while still displaying a natural look. With the new makeup techniques that are available, looking natural is easier than ever. Such creations as mineral makeup and exfoliators really help to maintain an even skin tone which will aid you in achieving the natural look you desire.
Mineral makeup is the newest, hottest trend. Mineral makeup is natural, it sits on your face without clogging your pores and without being absorbed into the skin in a ‘cakey’ manner. The only downside is that mineral makeup can be expensive. However, more and more companies are venturing into the mineral makeup trend because of consumer demand.
Make sure you choose the right shade for your face. Choosing a lighter or darker shade will emphasize that you are wearing makeup, not make you look natural. Most stores have testers available to determine the correct shade. Do not test any foundation on your face, test them on the inside of your wrist, instead. The inside of your wrist is the same shade as your face and will keep you from walking around the store looking like a zebra with many coloured stripes.
Bronzers and blushes are great for adding colour to your cheeks. Keep them to a minimal amount to preserve a natural look. Adding too much will make you look anything but.
Use skin exfoliations. Exfoliating helps to keep the pores clean and the skin tone even. It also helps to get rid of any dead skin that may be lingering and waiting for makeup to clump up. After exfoliating your skin, use a moisturiser to keep your skin supple and free from dry patches that will deter your efforts to a clean, natural look.
Make sure to cleanse your face every day. Removing the day’s makeup and grime will help to keep your pores from getting clogged and prevent blemishes. Use a cleanser specially designed for the face. Using soap on the face can be very drying, soap is made primarily from detergents.
Looking natural is a desire shared by many women. Thanks to the new products on the market, it is easier than ever to look natural with minimal effort. Trying items such as mineral makeup and exfoliators will keep your skin looking soft and natural. Choosing the right shade is important to avoid looking fake and over-made. Experiment with different techniques to find your best look.
