Don't have enough time to contour your cheekbones or apply a cat eye in the morning? Why not go back to basics and still achieve that stunning natural look?
Here are twelve ways to help you apply simple everyday makeup.
STEP ONE: Prep your skin.
Cleansing and moisturizing your skin is important before you put any of your makeup products. This plays a significant part in blending of products easily when applied to achieve a simple makeup look.
First, cleanse your face to remove any oil or dirt from your skin. We highly recommend the Biotherm Biosource Hydra-Mineral Cleanser Softening Mousse.
After cleansing your skin, apply an ample amount of moisturizer to keep your skin hydrated. Opt for an oil-free formula to eliminate the risk of potential breakouts. Try our Biotherm Aquasource Skin Perfection Moisturizer High-Definition Perfecting Care.
STEP TWO. Even out your skin tone.
Now that your skin is clean and fresh, you many now move on to the first part of your natural makeup look, which is evening out your skin tone.
3. Apply a tinted moisturizer.
Opt for a tinted moisturizer. It's not just the easiest way to even out your skin tone but it is also a great way to give you sheer coverage with additional benefits to your skincare routine throughout the day. Apply it all over your face like a regular moisturizer.
4. Use a concealer.
Dab a concealer on any dark circles or blemishes that require a bit more coverage. You will surely love the Clinique All About Eyes Concealer. Give it a try.
