Get The Look: Natural Rosy Holiday Look
views · 12-17-2020
Some days, full-on glam is a mood, but most days, that effortless, natural makeup is the need of the hour.
Whether it’s your zoom business calls or FaceTime sessions with your friends, it’s always good to look your flawless self without showing that you’ve tried too hard. Here’s my start to finish natural, rosy, makeup routine for the holidays:
Clarins Instant Smooth is a primer I’m almost hitting the pan on.
It works so well to create a smooth base, without feeling heavy on your skin. I then mix two foundations, Milk Makeup Flex Stick Foundation (Medium With Neutral Peach Undertones) for a tiny bit of matte effect, and L’Oreal True Match liquid foundation (Honey Beige N6) for a little moisture. Since my skin is combination, I figure it’s good to combine the two textures!
Eyes & Under Eyes:
I used a creamy white shade from my Smashbox ShapeMatters, followed by a pink shade. On the outer edge, I used a deep plum shade from the brand Rejuva Minerals (Iris). To make sure the eyes really stand out, I used my usual Elf 16 Hour Camo concealer which is a few shades lighter than my foundation and skin tone. To set that area, I used Ciate’s Translucent Powder. And for the liner, my favorite, bold, Clarins Crayon Kohl. I made this a bit more natural by fading out the wing with my fingernails.
I highlighted using a creamy, sparkly shade from the Smashbox palette, and used the same pink from my eyes as blush. I dipped into this palette again for contour, and used a Chantecaille Brow Pencil to define my brows.
I use Lancome CILS Booster & Clarins Supra Volume to enhance the length of my natural lashes. Believe it or not, with these two products, I’ve never really had to use falsies!
You can use a mix of lip liners to achieve a rosy lip! Mine are a mix of a chocolate brown, light pink, and dark plum, but this will vary depending on your natural lip color. I added a nude brown Lancome Le Monochromatique (Oh La La) on top just to make it a bit more natural.
I hope this provides you some insight into how to achieve a natural look. The key isn’t necessarily less products, it’s actually just using less of each, and picking shades and textures that work well with your natural skin tone and texture.
