This season, natural makeup is back. No more overworked eyebrows, overworked lips and waxy complexion… Let’s move on to imperceptible makeup. But how to do it ? Take out the notebooks.
This end of the year 2023 marks a turning point in the history of beauty since a real return to nature is taking place. Whether in the field of hair (where coloring tends to get closer and closer to the natural color of the hair) or in that of makeup… The most minimalist looks are highlighted. But after so many years of sophistication, how do you achieve the ideal “no make up make up”? Let us guide you!
With a focus on the skincare routine
If you want to opt for more natural makeup, it is important not to skimp on your beauty routine. And more particularly on the stages chemical exfoliations (allowing you to get rid of dead cells and other residues present on the surface of the epidermis while activating cell renewal) and hydration. This last pillar is essential because it allows the skin’s protective film to remain perfectly waterproof and healthy in order to protect the epidermis from all external attacks such as pollution.
Obviously, SPF is also very important since it will act as a barrier against all the harmful effects of the sun. To be applied every day, all year round (yes, even in winter), it will allow your skin to avoid the phenomenon of premature aging and clearly, you will thank us later.
By opting for a less covering foundation (when possible)
Covering foundations are very practical for hiding imperfections and redness. The problem is that they also tend to give that waxy effect that we don’t always want. To avoid this, the covering concealer + light foundation combo is our best ally.
While the first will allow us to cover small pimples and other little things, the second will offer a lit and glowy effect to the skin. If you have combination to oily skin, don’t panic, Today there are light formulas, which provide light without offering major shine effects. And if you want to master your T-zone, you can always use a mattifying powder where you need it.
Putting bronzer aside in favor of blush
Bronzer is very practical for brightening up the complexion, but The end of 2023 marks the advent of blush. Ideal for waking up the skin and obtaining a more ingenuous look, this beauty essential apply to cheekbones, temples and even eyelids if you want to achieve a complete look.
By filling out your eyebrows sparingly
The time when eyebrows had to be ultra worked is over. Today, the pencil is used sparingly to fill in certain areas where hair does not grow like the head or tail of the eyebrow. It can also be used to slightly flesh out the mass to give the impression of a fuller arch. What matters more, however, is their shape. The idea? Use a fixing pomade to hold the hairs upwards to lift the look and obtain an effect similar to the brow lamination method.
By working on your eyes without overdoing it
Put aside liner, kohl and eyeshadows with too strong colors. The year 2024 will be that of a return to natural eyes. To enhance it, a little brown eye shadow will allow you to highlight the hollow of the eye while a nude and nicely iridescent version (to be defined according to your skin tone) to be placed on the mobile eyelid, will allow you to bring light to your eyes. Finally, a touch of brown or black mascara will complete your beauty look.
If these few steps seem rather basic to you or too extensive compared to your usual routine, you can obviously adapt it to your sauce so that it can meet the specificities of your skin and your needs/habits. But the main thing is there, so enjoy!
