No makeup look !

So that makeup blends in easily‚ first wash with cleanser and a cloth to gently exfoliate your face.


1.Moisturize and Even Out Skin Tone

The fastest, most natural way to do this is with a tinted lotion. Because it’s sheer, you don’t have to match it to your skin exactly, as you have to do with foundation. You can even go slightly deeper to warm up your complexion,  Apply it like a basic moisturizer.


2. Conceal Any Flaws

For visible breakouts or deep undereye circles, use a pigment-rich concealer, Its small applicator deposits just the right amount of makeup, which is key. “The trick is not to use too much concealer,”
 “That just accentuates problem areas.” For blemishes, dab, blend, and build up coverage in thin layers. For dark circles, swipe the wand under your eyes, then pat with a finger to blend.

4. Pick a Warm Cheek Color

Cream blushes in warm peaches or pinks “give skin a natural, subtle flush,(Cool pinks, on the other hand, look more made-up.) Apply the darker pink with your fingers, blending out in circles. Top your cheekbones with the lighter pink to highlight them.

Now Define Your Eyes and Lips

1. Shade Eyelids

A soft, brownish tint enhances your eyes’ natural contours without showing up as shadow. “Choose a shade slightly darker than your skin,”  “Brush it into the creases and along the lower lashes, making sure there are no hard edges.”  apply  to the centers of the lids, the brow bones, and the inner corners of the eyes.

2. Dot on Eye Pencil (Optional)

If your eyes need a little extra definition (or you want a slightly less bare look for evening), lightly dot a soft gray or brown pencil between the top lashes.

3. Subtly Amp Up Lips

To get a pretty tint (that also lasts), pick a shade that matches your lips exactly and press the color into your lips with your fingertip rather than applying it directly from the tube. Concentrate it in the center and blend out.
