So, here’s how I try to get a natural look:
First, I apply concealer on any spots or if I have dark undereye circles. Remember, it’s important to make sure your concealer is a tone that matches your skin color or is a shade lighter.
Next, I use a moisturizing foundation that blends in well with my skin tone. I find a tinted moisturizer is best since it provides lighter coverage and doesn’t apply too heavily so your face looks “caked-on.”
Third, applying powder helps reduce shine. It’s only necessary to apply a small amount (usually on the T-zone). I think my GC Loose Micro-Fine powders are the perfect tool to add a radiant glow to your skin, and diffuse fine lines and wrinkles!
Blush is a great tool to give you a healthy glow. Obviously, don’t use too much – you don’t want to look like a clown. I apply just enough color, usually in a warm pink or peachy tone, to give me a fresh look.
For eye shadow, I like to stick to light browns and pinks to achieve a subtle look. Once you start adding vibrant blues and greens, it stops looking natural.
Finally, it’s best to keep lips natural with a tinted lip gloss or lip balm. I think the GC Glossy Lips in “Perfect Fit” or “Newport” are really natural shades.
