Our Radiant, Natural Cover Look
Posted on January 30 2015
To get a “natural” makeup look, first you need to create a luminous complexion—so start with a clean, moisturized face, which will help your base look flawless. Here are the makeup tips you need to help you look like you’re not wearing any at all:
FACE Apply a foundation, such as Kjaer Weis Cream Foundation. For spots that need extra coverage, apply Studio 78 Anti Dark Circles “Off We Go” concealer. Hide any discoloration or imperfections under your eyes, around your nose and chin. Don’t forget to set your concealer and foundation with a powder, such as RMS Beauty “Un” Powder.
CHEEKS We love Ilia Multi-Stick put a spell on you in “I Put a Spell on You” (Tangerine). Smile and apply it to the apples of your cheeks and blend upward along the cheekbones. To highlight, use Vapour Trick Stick Highlighter on the high points of your cheeks, blending toward your temples.
EYES To help make your eyeshadow last longer, prime your eyes with Lily Lolo Eye Primer. For eye shadow base use RMS Beauty Eye Polish in Lunar. Next, rim your upper and lower lash line with Vapour Mesmerize Eyeliner in Truffle. To diffuse the liner, we like Antonym Cosmetics Quattro eyeshadow in Noisette. Start with the lightest color and apply it all over your lid using the Antonym Cosmetics Small Eye Shader Brush. Next, use the brush provided in the quad palette to apply the brown shimmer in the crease. Then wet the angled side of the brush, dip it in the copper/gold color and apply it on your lid, as well as below your lower lashes. Lastly, use the pearl color to highlight the inner corner of your eye to look more awake!
Curl your lashes and apply at least two coats of mascara. The more you apply, the more drama. Start at the base of your lashes and comb the brush through from root to tip.
Don’t forget your brows! Using Lily Lolo Eyebrow Duo make small strokes as if you were drawing hair. For natural-looking brows use a slightly lighter color than your hair.
EXTRA TIP For hydration and staying power, set your face with Fig+Yarrow complexion water. Give your face three sprays, ten inches away from your face. Not only will it make your makeup last longer, it will also moisturize your skin. And, it smells amazing!
