I tend not to wear a lot of makeup. Only recently have I even added lipsticks into my collection (that is TSwift’s influence on me 😉 ) I am a huge fan of looking put together but in a light, fresh, and natural way. I had my good friend Laura come over and show me how to do a no makeup makeup look for the Winter season. Fresh, healthy, and bright! Here in Colorado especially I notice my skin can get a little dry & dull. Great moisture and highlights are my BFF.
- Start with a clean face and use brush to blend in foundation.
- Add concealer if needed and blend in.
- Add blush to cheeks.
- Pencil in eyebrows lightly.
- Use golds & pinks for the eye shadow and add a fresh coat of mascara.
- Pair the neutral eyes with a bright, bold lip – I went with a red!
- If you need to use concealer, use it after you put on foundation and blend in.
- Don’t be afraid to use brushes with liquids (this one took me sometime to learn but now I can’t put on foundation without them!)
- If you go big on the eyes, try a tamer lip. If you want to go big on the lip, don’t go overboard on the eyes. ( I went with the lip, obvi!)
- Embrace your little quirks – Don’t feel the need to hid freckles or wrinkles!
