Have you heard? Natural looks are in! Rather than applying layer after layer of makeup, haircare products and more, learn how to create the look you want with less. Here are some effective tips for looking good naturally.
Quench your Skin’s Thirst
Looking good naturally starts with giving your skin what it needs. And what it needs first and foremost is moisture. Properly nourished and hydrated skin looks healthier and often has fewer impurities. A good starting point for properly hydrating your skin is learning more about your skin type. Each type of skin requires different nutrients to keep it properly hydrated. Find the skincare products that offer the proper balance of natural ingredients for your skin type.
Along with choosing the right skincare products, drink an adequate amount of water each day. Drinking enough water each day keeps your skin hydrated from the inside out and also helps flush out unwanted toxins.
Highlight Your Features
According to the Expert Interview Series: Liv Lundelius on Natural Beauty Products, less makeup is usually more. Rather than masking your natural beauty with layers of makeup, accentuate those features by applying the right amount of makeup in the right places. For example, accentuate your cheekbones by applying a thin sweep of dark blush underneath them. Choose tones of eye shadow that will make your eye color stand out.
Work with Your Hair’s Natural Tendencies
Don’t fight your hair when you can work with its natural tendencies. If you have curly hair, find haircare products that will nourish and accentuate your curls. Working with your hair’s natural tendencies reduces the time it takes you to fix your hair each day and keeps your hair looking great naturally. If you’re not sure how to work with your hair’s natural flow, ask a hair stylist for tips. When possible, allow your hair to air dry rather than using a hair dryer. Heat strips hair of its moisture and can cause long term damage.
Invest in Natural Products
Never buy a hair or skin care product without first reading its ingredient label. Always opt for products made from natural and nutrient-rich ingredients. These types of products are made with care. They also work to make your hair and skin healthier, rather than merely masking problems. You may also want to learn more about the back story of the companies that produce your chosen hair and skincare products. Supporting businesses that create their products in a sustainable manner is a bonus.
Find Your Style
Complement your natural makeup routine with apparel that matches your natural style. For example, invest in clothing colors that highlight your skin’s natural tones. This creates a well-rounded look that will boost your confidence and keep you looking great all day.
Less is more. Create the look you want without applying layers of makeup, haircare products and more. Instead, quench your skin’s thirst with high-quality, natural products, use minimal makeup to highlight your features and more.
