What Is Natural Makeup?

When we think of natural makeup, we think versatility. It’s the perfect look to take you from day to night, without feeling out of place. 

Envision fresh-faced, glowy skin with a healthy flush, brushed up brows, and flattering neutral shades to create minimalist eye makeup 

Sound good? Here’s how to do everyday natural makeup looks 

How to do Natural Makeup – Tutorial

Ready to master going minimal? Follow this step-by-step natural makeup tutorial for a glow-boosting, radiant look.  

Step 1 – Prep Skin with an Illuminating Primer 

Once you’ve completed your skincare routine, it’s time to prime.  

We recommend starting your look with the Makeup Revolution Superdewy Make Up Serum. Our innovative blend of skincare and makeup is infused with nourishing oils and Wild Berry Extract to provide an instant hit of luminosity and radiance.  

Wear this primer under the rest of your makeup or as a standalone product – the ultimate beauty hack for achieving the natural makeup look! 

Step 2 – Switch Out Your Full Coverage Foundation

If you’re not ready to brave a totally bare face, we recommend a lightweight foundation with a sheer finish. That way, you’re still ticking the minimalism box, without feeling insecure about your skin. 

The Relove Super Serum Foundation is perfect for creating a silky, breathable base with a dewy finish. The lightweight formula can be built up for days when you need a little more coverage, or applied lightly to enhance skin’s natural glow.  

It’s available in 15 true-skin shades, meaning that whatever your skin tone, you can rock the minimal makeup look. 

Step 3 – Go Easy on Concealer

It can be easy to cover up every minuscule ‘imperfection’ with layers of concealer to achieve the most flawless finish. While we understand it comes with confidence, it’s important to know that no one is going to be scrutinizing your skin as much as you do! 

For the ultimate natural makeup look, we recommend only popping concealer in the places you really need it, be that under your eyes or over a blemish.

The Makeup Revolution Conceal & Hydrate Concealer is great for touching up those areas. Plus, it’s infused with Hyaluronic Acid to boost hydration for a fresh finish without cakiness. 

Step 4 – Get That Natural Flushed Glow

Next, it’s time to achieve a natural-looking rosy flush. 

The key to this faux healthy glow is a cream or liquid blush that seamlessly blends into your dewy base. We love the Makeup Revolution Superdewy Liquid Blush for this. Available in a variety of shades to flatter all skin tones, just a small drop provides the pigment needed to instantly uplift the complexion with a hint of radiance. 

Apply to the apples of your cheeks and blend out across your cheek bone. To add a bit more depth and definition, swipe on a small amount of bronzer to the contours of your face.

Step 5 – Subtly Tame the Brows

Remember, we’re still going for the natural makeup look, so super sculpted brows are a no-no. For the best minimal brow makeup, brush them upwards with a fixing product to enhance their natural shape and keep them in place all day. 

Try the Revolution XX Brow Fix Gel in your shade to add some control to brows while still maintaining the no-makeup makeup look 

Step 6 – Create Soft Natural Eye Makeup with Neutral Shades

Next, it’s time to create a natural eye look that follows the barely-there theme.  

For this, you’re going to want to grab your favorite neutral shadow palette. We love the Makeup Obsession Shadow Palette in Nude is the New Nude. Complete with 9 wearable shades, this palette is perfect for creating a subtle nude smoky eye.  

Apply your darker shade to the crease of your eyes, and blend it out using a fluffy brush. Then, pop some of the lighter shade over the rest of your lid and blend. 

Finish the look with a swipe of your favorite mascara. For the most natural makeup look, we suggest choosing a curling mascara to enhance your lashes’ shape, without adding too much volume which will contradict your minimalist vibe. 

Try the 5D Whip Lift Mascara, which is specially designed to lift lashes with its unique curled wand.  

Step 7 – Finish with a Gentle Lip

No makeup look is complete without lips. Since this is a soft natural makeup look, we recommend choosing a shade that complements and enhances your natural lip color.  

A sheer lip gloss is a great way to add a subtle pop of color and glossy hydration. The Makeup Revolution Sheer Lip is available in various nudes to flatter every skin tone. It’s also the perfect option for babes with dry lips!
