How to Create a Natural Makeup Look How to Create a Natural Makeup Look How to Create a Natural Makeup Look

While we love a full face of makeup, there are occasions where you may want to skip the latest beauty trends and opt for a natural makeup look. If you’re looking for the middle ground between the no makeup, makeup look and a statement makeup trend—a natural makeup look is just what you need! Find out how to get one in this easy, step-by-step makeup tutorial.

STEP #1: PRIME YOUR FACE

With any makeup look, it’s important to use a makeup primer to ensure your makeup lasts all day long. A primer will also help even out your skin and prep it for foundation. Apply the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Glow Lock Makeup Primer to give your skin an all over natural glow.

STEP #2: CREATE FLAWLESS SKIN

Once you’ve applied your makeup primer, you want to create the impression of flawless skin, while at the same time not boasting the fact that you’re wearing a full face of makeup. Apply the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Glow Foundation using the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Blend Artist Foundation Blender to give your skin medium, all day coverage with a glowing finish.

STEP #3: DEFINE YOUR FEATURES

To continue with this natural makeup look, highlight and define your features. First, apply the L’Oréal Paris True Match™ Lumi Bronze It Bronzer to the hollows of your cheeks, temples, and jawline to give your skin a sun-kissed look. Then, dip your blush brush in a neutral blush shade, like the L’Oréal Paris Paradise Enchanted Fruit-Scented Blush Makeup in Charming. Apply it to your cheekbones in a “C” and inverted “C” shape using a light hand. Finish this step by swiping the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Longwear Highlighter Shaping Sticks in Gold is Cold along your cheekbones, bridge of your nose, and cupid’s bow for a warm, natural-looking highlight.

STEP #4: FILL IN YOUR BROWS

Nowadays, brows are essential for any makeup look—this one included. Of course, you won’t want to overdo it by creating “Instagram brows,” all you need to do is lightly fill in your arches. Brush the L’Oréal Paris Brow Stylist Boost & Set Brow Mascara through your brows to give them a fuller appearance.

STEP #5: ROCK A BROWN SMOKY EYE

Nothing says natural makeup quite like a brown smoky eye. This eye makeup look is noticeable and beautiful without being too harsh or dramatic. To get the look, use the L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Pocket Palette Eye Shadow in Boudoir Charme. Begin by applying either of the two medium brown shades to your eyelid. Then, apply the lightest shade to the inner corner of your eye and below the arch of your eyebrows. Lastly, apply the darkest shade to the crease of your eye using a fluffy brush—making sure to blend well.

STEP #6: LINE YOUR EYES

Revisit your medium brown shade from the previous step, using it to line both your upper and lower lash line. With a small flat top brush, lightly smudge the lines to create a soft, natural eyeliner effect.

STEP #7: COAT YOUR LASHES

Not wearing mascara at all may look natural but don’t you want to give your lashes a bit of a boost? Don’t worry, it doesn’t have to look overdone. Instead of your standard black shade, swipe on a few coats of brown mascara. Try the L’Oréal Paris Voluminous Lash Paradise Washable Mascara in Black Brown for lashes with dramatic volume in a more natural shade.

STEP #8: APPLY YOUR LIPSTICK

To complete your natural makeup look, you’ll want to use a lip color that is not too far off from your natural lip. For a natural look, you’ll ideally want to stick with shades of light pink or peach for a subtle pop of color. Try the L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Lipstick Matte Lipstick in Matte-Caron or the L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Lipstick Shine Lipstick in Shining Peach.

Editor’s note: Pretty lip colors that closely match your natural lip hue have a name in the beauty industry: MLBB colors. Can you guess what that stands for? My Lips But Better!

STEP #9: SET YOUR MAKEUP

Now that your natural makeup look is complete, make sure you apply a setting spray to seal the deal! Spritz your face with the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Spray & Set Makeup Extender Setting Spray, spraying in “T” and “X” shapes to keep your makeup looking just applied all day long.
