FIRST SKINCARE

Before applying any makeup, ensure your skin is well-prepped and hydrated. Cleanse your face with a gentle cleanser to remove any dirt and impurities, followed by a hydrating moisturizer to nourish and plump the skin. Don’t forget to apply a broad-spectrum sunscreen with SPF 30 or higher to protect your skin from harmful UV rays.

KEEP A LIGHT BASE

The key to a clean makeup look is to create a flawless base that looks natural and radiant. Begin by applying a lightweight, tinted moisturizer or BB cream to even out your skin tone while allowing your natural beauty to shine through. Use a damp beauty blender to blend the product seamlessly into your skin for a soft, natural finish.

CONCEAL IMPERFECTIONS

To conceal any blemishes or dark circles, choose a creamy concealer that matches your skin tone. Dab a small amount of concealer onto the areas that need coverage and gently blend it out with your fingertips or a makeup brush. Remember to pick a light-coverage concealer to avoid cakey undereye and maintain a natural-looking finish.

THE CLEAN MAKEUP IS ALL ABOUT THE CREAM BLUSH

For a subtle flush of color, opt for cream blushes or liquid cheek tints in soft, rosy tones. Apply the blush to the apples of your cheeks, blending it upwards towards your temples for a youthful, radiant glow. Cream blushes seamlessly melt into the skin, giving you a naturally flushed look that lasts all day.

KEEP EYEBROWS DEFINED

Enhance your natural features by simply defining your brows using a clear brow gel. Then, curl your lashes and apply a few coats of lengthening mascara to open up your eyes and add definition to your lashes.

FINISH WITH A NATURAL LIP

Complete your clean makeup look with a natural lip color that enhances your lips without overpowering the rest of your makeup. Choose sheer lipsticks, tinted lip oils, or lip glosses in soft pink, peach, or nude shades. Blot the color onto your lips for a stained effect or apply a light layer for a subtle hint of color.

ADD SOME GLOW

Add a final touch by a few drops of liquid highlighter on the apples of your cheeks, on your eyelids, and on the tip of your nose. Go for rose-gold shades of fluid highlighters that have little to no glittery particles.

EMBRACE YOUR NATURAL BEAUTY

Above all, remember that the clean makeup look is about enhancing your natural beauty and embracing your unique features. Whether you’re running errands or attending a springtime soirée, let your inner glow shine through and radiate confidence with your fresh, clean makeup look.
