Conquering the "Natural" Look

June 16, 2014

"What in the world is a "natural" look if you're wearing make-up?" It's not technically "natural" if you are wearing make-up...right?

 

The debate over natural hair, make-up, and a natural body goes on and on; however, in the make-up world there is such a thing as a "natural" make-up look and I had THE HARDEST time trying to figure out how to achieve it! I'm an avant-garde girl! I love very dramatic, over-the-top make-up with feather lashes and glitter lips...LOL! But, that's not what my clients wanted all the time and in order for me to begin the process of mastering my craft (as I am no where near a make-up master yet) I had to figure out how what a "natural" make-up look was and how to go about creating this all elusive "natural" make-up look.

 

The simpliest way to define a "natural" make-up look is the process of applying make-up that makes it appear as if you have little to no make-up on....if that makes any sense...lol!

 

So I, like many of you, went to YouTube! I watched hundreds of hours of make-up tutorials. I scoured Google for images of "natural" make-up. But the best thing I ever did was practice.  I called all of my friends over and practiced until my hands hurt. Then, I invested in my make-up kit to be sure to have the products that I know would work when creating the "natural" look, most of which are nudes, tans, browns....earth tones.
