There is nothing quite like your natural beauty; when you underplay your makeup to simply compliment you and not take over your face, leaving you unrecognizable. Natural hairstyles and makeup are all over the runways, red carpets, and Hollywood celebs are sporting the “made under” look more and more; however that could be simply because they aren’t accustomed to doing their own hair and makeup anymore and have no idea what they’re doing. I don’t know, I’m not friends with them and I’m not asking them what they use to make themselves look so elegant and under-stated.
Total Beauty however, has the hookup when it comes to achieving those oh so sweetly simple looks being sported by celebs we can’t stop looking at.
Whitney Port just so happens to be one of those celebrities we think are just gorgeous. She could most likely wear a garbage bag, not shower for four days, and eat nothing but chocolate and greasy Chinese food, and she would probably still look gorgeous. So how do you go about getting her bronzed glow for an everyday look that will never get old?
Start by applying tinted moisturizer. A tinted moisturizer will allow your natural skin’s texture to shine through and create a dewy glow. But, if you have trouble areas, feel free to dab concealer where needed.
If you don’t know where to start with tinted moisturizer, check out these top-rated products to get you started:
- Mary Kay Tinted Moisturizer with Sunscreen SPF 20
- Boots No7 Soft and Sheer Tinted Moisturizer
- Bobbi Brown SPF 15 Tinted Moisturizer
- Olay Definity Color Recapture
- Becca Luminous Skin Colour
Define brows with powder that is a shade lighter than the roots of your head hair. Take a look at Ardell Brow Defining Powder if you’re not sure where to start. It is available in a wide variety of colors and is super cheap, with a price tag of less than $5 most places. Plus, it received 10 out of 10 stars on Total Beauty, which counts for something!
Brush your eyelids with a light silver shadow. For a range of silver tones try Physicians Formula Bright Collection Shimmery Quad Eye Shadow in Metallic Quartz.
Curl lashes and apply three coats of black lengthening mascara to top lashes only. For a good lengthening mascara try CoverGirl Volume Exact Mascara or L’Oreal Double Extend Lash Boosting Mascara which we reviewed not too long ago.
Smile big and use a blush brush to apply bronzer on the apples of your cheeks to bring out a healthy glow. Try Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess Loose Shimmer Bronzer.
Finish by dabbing on a sheer pinky-rose lip gloss (try Nars Lip Gloss in Sweet Dreams) and powdering your t-zone with a translucent loose powder to control midday shine.
