Being natural can actually take a lot of time and effort. There is nothing natural about wearing a ton of makeup to look natural! The purpose for wearing makeup is to enhance our features and it should make us look beautiful, healthy, and youthful. There are ways to achieve natural beauty without wearing a ton of makeup and with out spending an hour in the bathroom applying it.
The 2 most important factors in being a natural beauty are good skin and nice, groomed eye brows that are shaped correctly for your face. I won't get into skincare on this topic, but I will say that getting facials and using good quality organic products can work wonders in keeping your skin nice so you don't have to pile on the foundation and concealer to hide bad skin.
Keeping your eye brows groomed by getting them tweezed or waxed every 4-6 weeks can make you instantly look years younger and it is a great way to make your eyes stand out with out needing makeup.
Don't fall into eye brow trends!! Just because really big brows or pencil thin brows are in style doesn't mean it is going to look good on you. You can also end up ruining your brows for life if you start taking off too much or constantly shaping them differently than what your eyes brows want to do. The consequence is your eye brow hair will not grow back or it will grow back weird with spaces.
The secret to a nice eyebrow shape that compliments you is to follow the natural shape of your brow and only remove hairs that fall outside that natural line that was created. Trim only really long hairs. If you trim too much and too short your eyebrows will have spaces and they will appear to look thinner.
NATURAL BEAUTY ENHANCERS
Lets face the facts that very few people look great without any thing on their face. But most of us do look great with just a little something, and that is what we are trying to achieve, with out spending a lot of time, and makeup!
Once you have groomed your brows, and gotten that facial, its time to add a little beauty enhancements that will make you look like a natural beauty.
- Eminence Tinted Moisturizers with SPF 25 does it all. It gives you light hydration, has your sun protection with zinc, tinted for a little color, and gives some coverage even though it has a sheer texture. Apply all over the face in the morning. If your skin is really dry, add an antioxidant rich moisturizer underneath the tinted moisturizer. It will make the tinted moisturizer go on better, and leave your skin dewy and glowing. You can also apply it around the eyes on top of an eye cream. This will take 1 minute to apply!
- Next add a little eye brow pencil or powder on your groomed eye brows. This will fill in any spaces and define your eye brow shape.
- Curl your lashes and add a little black mascara. Make sure it doesn't clump. You want each individual lash to look naturally dark and longer. If you don't want to wear mascara then get your lashes tinted. your lashes will look great for 4 weeks!
- Lastly, don't forget about your lips! Its important to stay hydrated so your lips will not get dry and cracked. As we age they also become thinner and fine lines develope on the upper lip line. Eminences Cinnamon Lip Plumper hydrates while paprika and cinnamon plump up your lips. The plumping action lasts a couple of hours before you need to reapply. It has a gloss that isn't sticky. Your lips will naturally look fuller and luscious!
