Many women enjoy wearing makeup on a daily basis, but sometimes a full face of makeup is just too much or you simply don’t have time. Want to go for a more natural look, but don’t know if you can comfortably pull it off? Here are a few simple steps for a fresh, natural-looking five-minute face!
BB/CC Cream – If your complexion just needs a little evening out, skip the concealer and foundation and just smooth on a little BB or CC cream, which are sheerer and offer less coverage than a traditional foundation. If you need more color correction, go for a CC (color correction) cream, if you want just sheer, light coverage, go for the BB (Beauty Balm).
Lip/Cheek Tint – A newer beauty must-have is a lip tint – a very sheer wash of color that can be used on cheeks and lips for a fresh, flushed look. Very pretty and natural looking!
Wrinkles? – Just because you’re going for the natural look, doesn’t mean you have to let your crow’s feet show! Applying a little of Christie’s CLOSE UP Instant Wrinkle Reducer & Treatment can instantly work to reduce fine lines and wrinkles, making your skin look smoother and more perfectly natural.
Nude, Matte Eyeshadow Palette – If your eyes feel “naked” without shadow, a nude or neutral matte palette can help them pop without added color or frosted shine. Just choose a neutral shade slightly lighter or deeper than your skin tone to brush over lids. You can also use a liner brush to line eyes with a neutral shadow instead of eyeliner for a more natural look.
Curl Your Lashes – Curling lashes with a lash curler can make them appear longer even without mascara. For clump-free definition, apply clear mascara after curling.
Don’t Forget Your Brows – Well-groomed brows are a must if you’re going natural! They help define your face and features. Many clear types of mascara can help you set your brows as well, so a quick sweep on your brows and you’re out the door!
