Top tips for creating natural looking makeup

Every woman wants to create that “I just woke up like this” look, but unfortunately natural make up is often harder to master than a full on smoky eye and red lip. Here are our top tips for creating that radiant natural wedding day makeup look!

Prep your skin
Do a deep cleanse to remove any dullness and let your natural radiance shine through. Try a hot cloth cleanser such as Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish or an exfoliator for extra bright skin.

Pick a light base 
Instead of a full foundation try a BB cream or your usual foundation mixed with moisturiser for lighter coverage. If you are prone to oily skin, dust a light powder over your T-zone to keep away shine.

Problem areas
Find a long-lasting concealer that matches your skin tone and dot on dark circles or blemishes. Blend this in properly – it’s best if you apply all your make up in bright daylight so you can see any obvious marks.

For a natural flush on your cheeks choose a cream blusher with warm tones. Start on the apples of your cheeks and slowly blend out along your cheekbones. Powder blushes with cooler tones will give a more doll-like, made-up appearance.

Natural shadow
For a natural look pick a matt brown eyeshadow (aim for a tone that’s slightly darker than your skin tone). Sweep the shade across your lids and blend it thoroughly. For an extra bit of shine, pop a shimmer cream shade like Nars Shimmer Eyeshadow in Edie, in the centre of your lids.

Lush lashes
Even with a natural look, you’ll need a good mascara base. Before you apply, curl your lashes (we love the Shu Uemura curlers for a dramatic, yet natural shape). If you’re blonde, choose a brown shade of mascara, brunettes go dark brown or black. Push the mascara into the base of your lashes and work your way out to the tips.

If you’d like to define your eyes, but still want the natural look, try dotting liquid eyeliner between your top lashes. This will give you more definition without the obvious line.

Pucker up
Exfoliate your lips by brushing them lightly with an old toothbrush so you have a nice even base to start with. Choose a matt lipstick shade that’s a close match to your natural lip colour and use it to define your lip shape. For a really natural look use your finger to simply smooth a little colour onto the centre of your lips.
