Are you wondering how to get the naturally beautiful makeup look? With Spring around the corner the trend will only increase. How do we that? We’ll it starts with great looking skin. Here are our tips for wearing minimal makeup or no makeup at all.
1. Prep your skin
Always wash your face with a cleanser like Botanic Tree Face Wash. That’s because a cleansed face is like a great canvas. This unique cleanser is derived from sugar cane extracts, boosted with papaya extracts to brighten skin tone while passionflower and drift nut extracts restore skin to a healthy balance.
Even if you’re applying the tiniest amount of concealer or foundation it’s important that you apply a hydrating moisturizer like Neutrogena Hydro Boost Moisturizer to make your skin look smooth and polished-looking with a more radiant, even tone to more naturally beautiful.
3. Clean up your brows
A brow that is cleaned up and shaped perfectly can help frame your face. If your brows need a little filling use gentle strokes using a pencil, powder, or cream to help define your brows. Less is more these days, and simple, but defined brows are a must in minimal makeup looks.
4. Dab a little concealer or foundation
Most of the time we really don’t need to cover our entire face with foundation. Instead use a concealer or foundation to dab on the blemished spots. Simply pat with your finger to blend.
Did you know that Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Concealer is great for repairing and minimizing acne scars? Just add a couple of drops to your face after cleansing and apply day crème, serum or night crème on top. Or add a couple of drops into the crème and apply to your face to look naturally beautiful.
Spooning is a great way to naturally curl your lashes without mascara and eyelash curler. Heat a spoon in a mug of warm water, then press the curved side over your lid and gently press lashes against the curved edge of the spoon for ten seconds.

11. Drink Water
We can’t stress enough on the importance of H2O. Every system and function in our body relies on water. Carry a bottle of water with you wherever you go and keep yourself hydrated through the day. Drinking a minimum of 8 or more glasses of water helps flush out toxins from your body, and hence your skin looks plumper and livelier. It also helps keep wrinkles at bay.
The best way to consume water is to fill up a bottle with cucumbers, lemons, zucchinis, mint leaves and other such brightly colored veggies and make your detox water to drink on-the-go. Doing this gives you the nutrients as well as the hydration to help your body utilize and hold onto the water more efficiently
12. Exfoliate your Skin on a regular basis
Make exfoliation a vital part of your skincare regime. It indeed is the key to radiant skin. Your skin is always shedding dead cells from the surface which helps in renewing itself with fresh and healthy cells. Give this natural process a helping hand by using a mild exfoliator. An excess of dead cells sitting on the surface of your skin can lead to clogged pores, blackheads, acne and pimples.
When you inculcate exfoliation into your regime, your serums and moisturizers are better absorbed into the skin making them work more efficiently. Opt for gentle scrubs or create your own natural scrubs at home using ingredients like gram flour or a coffee scrub. Or even you can try these if you do not want to hustle. Keep exfoliation to a maximum of twice a week. You will see visible improvement in the health of your skin – it will look fresher and smoother.
13. Use Sunscreen before going out
Sunscreen is not an option. The Sun’s UVA, UVB and UVC rays are the primary cause of premature aging of the skin. If you follow this one simple step, you will thank yourself in the future. It helps prevent dark spots and hyper-pigmentation. SPF which is the ‘sun protection factor’ determines how well the sunscreen will protect you. Dermatologists recommend that you wear a minimum of an SPF 30 before stepping out.
14. Wear Well Fitting Clothes
What you wear affects how you present yourself. Ensure all the clothes you choose fit you perfectly. Stock your wardrobe up with clothes that complement you and look flattering on your figure. Wearing clothes that are too tight or baggy can be uncomfortable and can add bulkiness to your shape. Clothes that don’t fit you well are only ruining your style. Add in some extra effort to find stuff while you shop, that makes your body look naturally beautiful, flattering and also allows you to breathe.
Your pearly whites need maintenance and your oral health speaks volumes about you. Visit the dentist every six months or so and follow regular routines like brushing your teeth at least twice a day with a good fluoride toothpaste. Floss every day, use mouthwash and keep your smile looking healthy and clean. Choose the right toothbrush and brush your teeth the right way – go up and down in little circular motions. A great smile bestows so many advantages and it also boosts your confidence to a whole new level!
In today’s modern lifestyle, we all have crazy schedules and stress comes naturally. However, uncontrolled stress can lead to problems like headaches and hypertension.

Meditate, drink a nice hot cup of tea, listen to music or make some time for anything you love. Do take a chill pill now and then!
