Makeup? Who, you? Keep 'em guessing with a barely-there makeup look that lets your natural beauty take center stage. Subtle, fresh-faced makeup looks great on every girl, never goes out of style and is simple to pull off. The key is to pick the right makeup shades. Nothing puts the kabosh to a natural makeup look like too-bright cheeks or washed-out lips. If you have a honey complexion -- light to medium skin with yellow/amber undertones-- you'll look beautifully-bare in tawny, pink and golden shades.
Opt for a lightweight tinted moisturizer. There’s no place for caked-on foundation in a barely-there beauty look. A product with yellow undertones will match your honey complexion perfectly.
Choose a pale pink highlighting powder with just a hint of gold in it. Highlighting products subtly accent your features, and the pinky-gold tones play up the natural glow in your honey skin.
Brighten those pretty peepers of yours with cool-toned, gray-brown eye shadow hues. Try sheer shades of taupe, granite or moss.
Select a warm. tawny brown liner and soft black mascara. They make your eyes pop without screaming, “hey everybody, I’m wearing makeup."
Choose a gel blush to give your cheeks a sheer glow. While powders sit on top of your cheeks, gel blush melts into your skin for the freshest, most natural-looking flush. A shade with deep rosy tones creates that sexy-sweet, just-in-from-the-cold look.
Ditch the goopy glosses in favor of a sheer tinted lip balm. Balms look fresh, dewy and natural – not to mention totally kissable. Look for shades of mauve or berry. These pretty purple-red shades flatter your warm complexion.
Give your brushes the day off – apply your makeup with your fingers for the most natural look. The warmth from your digits helps the makeup melt into your skin for a seamless effect.
When you’re in desperate need of a beauty shortcut, just pat your gel blush onto your lips and lids. You’ll get a natural all-over glow on the quick.
Always test out makeup shades in natural light before you commit to wearing it out on the town. That’s the only way to know for sure whether your makeup looks natural on your complexion.
