Early mornings can be tough! Gathering the motivation to get ready can be a struggle, but we can’t tackle the world without looking our best! We’ve got the perfect natural makeup tutorial that is not only quick and easy, but will have you ready for whatever the workday may throw at you.
The first step in any great makeup routine is to prime. This will prep your skin and help the makeup last all day long. The Pretty Filter Icey Sherbet Primer is amazing, especially for those early mornings getting ready for school or work. The gel primer has an instant cooling effect on your skin (that feels amazing btw!) while hydrating and minimizing pores.
After prepping our skin, it’s time to create a flawless base with foundation. If you’re looking for a natural and glowing look for your day-to-day life, a hydrating foundation is the way to go (especially great for those with dry skin). One of our favorites is the Pro Filt’r Hydrating Longwear Foundation by Fenty Beauty. A little goes a long way when using this! It gives you medium coverage with a natural finish and is made to last all day long!
If your skin is a bit on the oily side and isn’t interested in a hydrating foundation, we would recommend the Studio Skin 24 Hour Oil-Free Hydra Foundation by Smashbox. This foundation gives medium coverage and leaves a natural matte finish that claims to last up to 24 hours!
Setting your base is important to prevent creasing, especially around the under-eye area. It also helps keep your makeup from moving or transferring throughout the day. A cult favorite is the Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Setting Powder. It has an instant blurring effect on your skin and leaves a 16-hour soft matte finish. If you’re looking for something a bit more budget-friendly, the Fit Me Loose Powder or ELF High Definition Loose Powder work just as great (maybe even better). To keep a natural finish, you can apply this only to areas that need it. For example: Under your eyes to prevent creasing or on your T-zone to help oil control.
4. Bronze, Blush, and Highlight
Now that you’ve got your base set, it’s time to add some life back onto your face. Physicians Formula’s Butter Bronzer is perfect to add a beautiful, natural glow to your skin. Their formula is creamy and has a soft texture that melts into your skin.
For blush, our favorite is the Sweet Cheeks Creamy Powder Blush by NYX. They come in a variety of colors, so you can find the perfect shade to match you. Their formula is infused with micro-pearls that leave a soft, blendable coverage with a beautiful glow on your skin.
Last, we highlight! One of our all-time favorite highlighters has to be Fenty’s Killawatt. But for those on a budget, we love Juvia’s Place The Royalty Glow Loose Highlighter. These highlights will have your skin glowing to the gods!
5. Brows and Eyes
Brows are completely up to you! If you have naturally full brows, a simple brush and you’re good to go. If you want a fuller but still natural brow, we def recommend using a brow pencil like the Anastasia Brow Wiz.
We’re going for something quick and easy on the eyes for days were running late or just can’t be bothered. The easiest thing to do is just blend a brown slightly darker than your skin tone all over your eyelids. You could even use your bronzer to do this, killing two birds with one stone! Apply some highlighter in the inner corner to help you look a bit more awake and then mascara!
A fun way to add a pop of color to your look without any fuss is using a colored liner in your lower waterline. Blue liner helps brown eyes pop, brown for blue eyes, and purple for green eyes! You could also do this trick with mascara if you’re feeling extra bold.
For lips, you have so many options! For something really simple and natural, a gloss is the way to go. You can also apply a nude lip liner underneath to help define your lips. If you want to go with the seasons, a deep red lipstick will look great and have you feeling like a boss babe!
