How To Look Naturally Beautiful Without Heavy Makeup?

The concept of beauty is unique for each person as every person is beautiful in their way. Everyone is beautiful, and it doesn’t matter how beauty standards are perceived across social media. Beauty is deeper than just what appears on the surface level. That’s why people seek ways to present their natural ways without relying on heavy makeup.

Some days you might feel like going all-in with your makeup. On the other hand, some days you just want to flaunt your natural glow and feel as confident as Beyonce does on stage. Let’s see which steps you need to take to feel flawless on any given day.

The first rule of natural beauty is – Hydrate

Hydration is the first rule to looking naturally beautiful because a lack of hydration will be visible on your complexion. Heavy makeup won’t help if your skin is dull and dry; in fact, it will make things worse. So, aim to drink at least two liters of water a day to even out your complexion, hydrate your body and your skin daily.

The second rule of natural beauty is – Exfoliate

Exfoliation is your go-to method for combating dull skin, removing buildup, and achieving radiant skin. It’s recommended to exfoliate your skin twice a week. You can use a physical exfoliant and scrub dead skin gently with a circular motion. You can also use an acid-based agent and exfoliate dead skin, reduce redness, blemishes and even out your skin tone and texture. Exfoliation also aids your skin in getting the most out of your skincare routine.

Third rule – Moisturize

First, you need to clean your skin gently on a regular basis. Use a cleanser suitable for your skin type. Next, moisturize your skin to prime it, hydrate it and make it glow. Take care of your under-eye area as well and hydrate it. Depending on the weather condition and the season, switch between lightweight and heavier creams to provide the right barrier to your skin against harsh weather conditions.

SPF all the way Baby!

We’re all guilty of forgetting to apply an SPF on a daily basis, there’s no shame in admitting that. But we should adopt a habit of applying sunscreen every day, no matter if it’s sunny or cloudy outside. An SPF can prevent premature aging caused by harmful sun rays. It also prevents further skin damage and other issues caused by too much exposure to sunlight.

Master that one hairstyle that always works

Good hair day can skyrocket your confidence so master your go-to hairstyle that always works. Or, if you’re debating whether you can go another day without washing your hair, do yourself a favor and wash your hair.

Rely on a trick or two

There are also tricks you can pull out of your sleeve to master looking gorgeous without makeup look. Since eyes usually draw the most attention, make sure your eyes are always glamorous with eyelash extensions. Eyelashes extensions will accentuate your eyes easily without using heavy makeup to achieve the same effect. You won’t have to add a layer of mascara to accentuate your eyes and it will save you time when you’re in the rush to get out in the morning. Just dab a bit of bronzer in the crease of the eye to add depth and you’re good to go.

Take care of your brows

Brows shape your eyes and your face so you should give them TLC regularly. Buzzy and unkempt brows will achieve the contrary effect to the one you’re going for with a natural look. If your brows are naturally lush and bold, remember to brush them and fixate them with a brow gel or a translucent soap. If you want to add a touch of makeup, use a brow pencil lightly, brush the excess with a spoolie and shape them the way you want.

A little bit of bronzer….

Will give you that sun kissed look and accentuate your best features. If you want to illuminate your best features a bit, pick a bronzer that has some gentle shimmer in it. You can apply it just under your cheekbones, so it will feel like your face is lightly countered. Go lightly with the product just under your hairline, touch the bridge of your nose and you’ll look like you’ve spent some time under the sun.

…and a bit of blush

Adding just a bit of blush to your cheekbones will give natural warmth to your face, accentuate your beauty and make your skin look radiant. Choose a shade that complements your skin tone and don’t overdo it. Especially if you’ve already added bronzer to accentuate your features, use blush very lightly.

…add a touch of concealer

Concealer is your best friend on all occasions. It doesn’t matter if you’re going for a natural look or full-routine makeup, the right concealer can brighten or conceal areas. In this particular case, choose a concealer that is as close to your skin tone, dab it under your eyes to brighten this area as the skin is usually a bit darker under your eyes.

Top it off with your signature lipstick

Now, just like you’ve used a perfect trick to accentuate your eyes, it’s time to accentuate your lips. First, remember to exfoliate your lips with a sugar scrub. Next, apply a rich cream to moisturize them and prepare them for that perfect lipstick. Find a shade that is as close to your lip color but a bit darker to accentuate them but still give out the look of not wearing makeup.

True beauty needs her sleep, too

Everything we’ve listed above can be forgotten if the beauty doesn’t get her beauty sleep. Consider sleeping as a way for your body to recharge and rejuvenate. Aim for at least eight hours of sleep and you’ll look radiant and gleaming.

Finally, for your skin to shine and be beautiful at all times, you must prioritize self-care. This implies you should avoid stress, exercise, and eat your calories rather than drinking them. Cleanse your body of all the negative, and your skin will thank you for it. Not only that, but you will feel that surge of confidence and you’ll look as radiant as ever. With just a touch of makeup and a few tricks from our list, you’ll look beautiful on any given day.
