Now, onto the no makeup makeup look, for lazy girls or girls who oppose makeup.
Step 1: Conceal any redness/blemishes/acne. I used Benefit's Erase Paste. Use a concealer brush, or just your clean fingers! Apply this in any under eye circles, redness, or blackheads to giev yourself a nice, even skintone.
Step 2: Blush! Find a nice rosy, pink shade and use a blush brush, or your clean fingers. Smile to find the apples of your cheeks, and swirl the blush onto your cheeks, then blend it up towards your temples.
Step 3: Add a smidge of bronzer. I applied bronzer straight to my blush brush, and had my model suck in her cheeks. Where her cheeks sunk in, I applied the bronzer. Make sure to blend out any harsh edges between your blush and bronzer!
Step 4: Eyeshadow. I chose a taupe color to just hide any oily lids. I just applied this all over the lid. Nothing too fancy. No crease or contour color.
Step 5: Mascara. My friend is extremely hesitant about eye makeup. When I told her we were going to add some mascara, well...it took some convincing to get her to do it. So, I literally just barely applied some black mascara. I used Josie Maran's Get One Give One Instant Natural Volume Argan Mascara. Well, that's a mouthful. I applied this to the tippy tops of her lashes, just to make them appear fuller, and her eyes bigger.
Step 6: Lips! This was another thing that my model was hesitant about. I used Victoria Secret's Beauty Rush Limited Edition Lip Gloss in Cherry Cola. She liked the smell of it! I took my lip brush and just applied a small amount to give her a dewy finish on her lips, but not too dewy!
Now, you're done! The finished product?:
Doesn't she look gorgeous? And not too made-up, either!
