Scraped back hair, a dewy complexion, and balmy, plump lips- the clean makeup look really came to take over. Now sitting firmly as a go-to for a pulled-together glow-up, it’s hard to remember what everyday makeup looked like before. However, although the clean makeup look has an effortless, simplistic finish, you should never judge a book by its cover. In fact, mastering the clean makeup look is an art that requires attention to detail, the right tools, and nine times out of ten, a natural makeup tutorial.
For this, we have you covered. Keep reading for our natural makeup tutorial to achieve the clean makeup look of your dreams.
How to apply foundation so it looks natural
To begin, start with the base. One of the most frequently asked questions in the make-up world is how to apply foundation so it looks natural, smooth, and sits almost like a second skin.
Step One: Blur the base
The answer to this begins with a primer. For a clean makeup look, we want to work with a base that is both smooth and dewy, so use a pea-sized amount of the Illamasqua Hydra Veil Primer on the fingers, focussing on the T-zone and blending outwards. This will help to remove any unwanted texture and decrease the visibility of fine lines.
Step Two: Go lightweight and be exact
Once the base has been set, the way how to apply foundation so it looks natural is largely centred on the foundation itself. Choose one which is ultra-lightweight and varying in shades. The Illamasqua Beyond Foundation works to provide an illuminated, glass-skin finish with 25 shades to choose from. What’s more, you can take our test for your beyond foundation shade to not only identify your colour category, but your undertone and depth- a more precise match of your natural skin-tone.
