Natural Beauty Tutorial

Hi guys!
So I subscribe to GirlsLife Magazine and in this months one, there was an article about how to get a "natural" makeup look. I know that this is literally every other post that I do, but I thought it would be fun to try and recreate this one because it is such a staple! So here we go!

I used my Maybelline Fit Me foundation really lightly all over my face and then I used the Balm's Instain Blush in Swiss Dot. It gave a nice apricot flush to my cheeks that looks very natural. If you suffer from redness on your cheeks, I might suggest going with a peach instead because an apricot shade might accentuate you're redness.

I filled in my eyebrows lightly with a brow powder (MAC Espresso) and a angled brush (MAC 266). I primed my lids with a cream shadow in a champagne color (Maybelline Barely Branded), but a normal eye primer would work as well! I then set it lightly with a shimmery champagne powder shadow. I know that in the article it says that matte shades are more "natural" and I totally agree, but I like using shimmery colors to help brighten my eyes! It's totally up to you!

I used a deep plum liner (Sephora Nanoliner Pleasant Plum) and lightly applied some on my lips, but used my finger to blend and sheer until it was just a hint of a berry red color! I love the color the model in the picture is wearing, but I didn't have something similar. Then I applied a little bit of lip balm, which helped with the blending and made it look less dry.

So this was the article, and I think that my makeup, although not a complete replica, is very close! I would love to get a lip color that's similar to her's in the picture, though!

 So that was my tutorial! I hope you enjoyed it and if you have any suggestions for future posts, leave them in a comment below!
