Fresh Faced & Natural Makeup

Not all makeup has to look like makeup! In fact, sometimes I think staying natural is the prettiest of all, and it's super easy to do. I love working with cream products for these types of looks because they leave a beautiful skin-like finish. I used two cream foundation sticks, one in my color, and one that was darker to contour with, but you can absolutely use a tinted moisturizer and bronzer if you wish.

1. Tinted Moisturizer
Apply a light base of tinted moisturizer (or cream stick) with your hands to create a soft canvas.

2. Concealer
Conceal lightly where needed (for me this is under the eyes) but don't cover up any freckles!

3. Cream Blush for Lips and Cheeks
Using your fingertips, pat on a light cream blush to your cheeks and lips. Blend the color into your skin until it looks naturally flushed.

4. Bronze
If you used cream sticks for your complexion, you can use the darker shade to bronze the skin. If you used a tinted moisturizer just sweep a bronzer over the highest planes of the face to get a sun-kissed glow.

5. Eyes
Sweep a light golden, shimmery shadow onto the eyelid. Add mascara and lightly fill in the brows if you wish.


Now you have a super natural look that is perfect for spring!
