Start with a flawless face. If you have a bottle of magic fairy dust in your pocket, use that. Otherwise, apply concealer where you need extra help and paint a thin layer of foundation all over your face to even out your skin tone and make your mug look naturally perfect.
Give yourself a natural, but eye-catching, rosy glow by applying a bit of light pink blush right on the apples of your cheeks.
Dust a light bronzer right below your cheekbones, along your jawline and on the sides of your nose and forehead to give yourself a healthy, natural-looking bit of tan that'll take you from looking un-made-up to dramatically natural.
Rock the nude lip trend for a natural, but dramatically different, look. Paint an almost-nude shade onto your lips to tone them down but make them look more interesting than plain bare lips.
Add drama to an all-natural makeup look by using your eyes to stir up emotion. Use metallic eyeshadow in a neutral-ish shade, such as bronze or gold, to add shine and shimmer without straying too far from your natural look. Rim your eyes with eyeliner using a soft brush to add smoky drama but still keep things natural-looking. Paint on just one thin layer of mascara to pump up the drama with dark lashes, but avoid caking too much on to maintain that au natural feeling.
