My Tips

  1. Natural beauty to me always makes me think of skin, so I think base products can often do the most for enhancing the canvas by evening out the color, hiding any slight imperfections from acne (or post-acne) and the like, but one that is light to medium coverage still lets the natural skin come through.  I like a buildable foundation, as I can use it lightly all-over and then use more moderate coverage just in the areas I need it.
  2. Finishing powders do a lot to add life to skin that can be tired or dull without making it look really shimmery or highlighted, and they’re very much my secret weapon to faking beautiful skin.
  3. I like to pick one or two features and then bring them out, like if you have really lovely eyes, then bringing out their shape by defining or contouring can be a great thing to do.  If you have great cheek bones, lightly highlighting and contouring can really make them pop.
