Techniques to achieve a more natural look
When applying your foundation, use a sponge and apply a small amount on your chin. Avoid putting foundation on your neck.
When applying your blush, smile in front of the mirror. Locate your cheek center, and start from there. Apply your brush towards your ear’s direction, making a swoop by the eye. This technique is called the “J” direction. Apply dusting powder afterwards.
Beautiful summery makeup look
Put a light dab of lipstick, apply lip liner and lip balm afterwards.
Apply translucent powder prior to applying your eye shadow. Dab the light shade on the inner part, and the darkest on the outer. Avoid applying color beyond your eyebrows.
If you have dark-colored half-circles beneath your eyes, make sure you use a concealer one or two shades below the color of your foundation. Use a sponge or your finger to blend the concealer to your skin. Avoid the use of luminescent concealers.
