Autumn is just around the corner, and it’s safe to say we all want to be looking our best. But at the same time, we want to look natural, which is why it’s important that we don’t overdo it when it comes to makeup. But how exactly can you achieve this? Makeup can be hard – but it doesn’t have to be. In this guide, we will explain just how you can achieve a natural looking Autumn makeup look so that you can look your best in the latter months of the year.
A skin tint is a great way to add a subtle, natural appearance to your makeup routine. As the lightest-possible complexion makeup product that gives you more of a radiant glow, a skin tint ensures a light, non-cakey appearance that is just perfect for the Autumn months.
Another way to ensure a smooth base is to use a primer. Primers are perfect for creating that minimalistic look, and they last throughout the day without sliding down your face. A pore-filling primer will smooth and fill any pores without clogging them the way a thick foundation might, which also can give an unnatural, cakey appearance. Similarly, an illuminating primer will add that “lit from within” glow and make you look more hydrated, meaning your skin will appear soft and far more natural.
Therefore, as mentioned above, when creating a natural, minimalistic Autumn look, it is important to steer clear of thick foundation and full facial coverage, which can appear incredibly unnatural. A tinted moisturizer, BB cream, CC cream, or skin tint (as aforementioned) will provide your skin with some extra hydration while still allowing some of your freckles, redness, and imperfections to shine through, completing that “makeup-less make up” look.
It’s also best to avoid powders when going for a more natural look – use creams instead. The reason for this is because creams instantly absorb into your skin, whereas powders sit directly on top, and are highly noticeable as a result. Simply put, creams are the better alternative when it comes to creating a natural Autumn makeup look. In addition, you can add some cream blush to your cheeks – nothing appears more natural than a blushed look to your face. Similarly, go light on the mascara, or don’t wear it at all. When you’re wearing mascara, it’s obvious that you’re wearing makeup, which obviously goes against the point of wanting to create a natural looking appearance for the Autumn.
So, there you have it – some top tips for creating a perfect, natural Autumn makeup look. The key takeaway, perhaps, is to not overdo it, and use creams and liquid makeup products such as skin tints, and avoid the use of heavy powders or thick foundations. Creams and tints quickly absorb into your skin, giving it a fresh and hydrated appearance. So, if you follow the tips presented here in this handy guide, you’ll be looking just perfect and all natural when Autumn arrives.
