    Makeup Tips for Barely There Makeup

    Choose the right coverage. 

    The first step is to create a flawless complexion. To do this, you will need to make sure that yourfoundation,concealer, powder and any other coverage you use matches your skin as closely as possible. Use a colour corrector to reduce redness, dark patches, green undertones or sallow spots and try some subtle highlighting or strobing on your nose, cheeks, chin and around your eyes. Avoid bronzers and stick to lighter shades for highlighting and be sure to blend carefully.

    Stick to neutrals. 

    Chooseeyeshadow colours that are very close to your skin tone. Cream eyeshadow works especially well as it blends into your skin more naturally. Shadows with a slight shimmer work well around the brow line to add a bit of glow. Matte colours work well on the eye itself. Instead of black or dark brown liners and pencils, choose lighter colours on your eyes and soft powdered colour on your brows. Keep lips natural with gloss. 

    Accentuate subtly. 

    Save the carefully contoured cheekbones and brows for another time. Instead, gently follow your natural brows to keep them as close to natural as you can. Use blush or highlighting powder on cheekbones and make eyes and lips look naturally defined without dramatically increasing them or adding too much detail.
