I know the struggle. You want to wear makeup to enhance your beauty, but one, you do not have a clue what you are doing, and two, you hate feeling like there is a thick layer of gunk over your face. Well, your solution is finally here. I am going to provide you with all of the tools to look and feel like a natural beauty queen.

Tinted Moisturizer

This product will be your holy grail. What is it exactly? Well, it is just like face lotion that absorbs into your skin, but tinted with color. The point of this is to moisturize, even out your skin tone and protect your skin from the sun.

This is the one I use. It works magic, and smells amazing. However, there is one significant downfall that is too large to ignore: it only comes in two shades.  This is extremely problematic, because, hello, there are way more skin colors than just two! So, I’m going to include another great moisturizer that supports a wider variety of skin tones.

Rated five stars by over 2,000 beauty lovers, this moisturizer is perfect for a wider variety of skin tones.

Blush is a staple when it comes to natural makeup. If you wear tinted moisturizer without blush, your face can sometimes come across as a bit colorless, and not everyone enjoys the old ‘cheek pinch’ trick to add some color. (Hello, it hurts.) I recommend a cream or stick blush, because this look is on the natural side, so you’ll want to stray away from powders to maintain this dewy look.

My wonderful aunt used to say: If you’re not going to wear makeup, always wear mascara. And, she was right. Mascara is the epitome of beauty, acting as the most necessary product of them all. You can wear a full face of makeup, but without mascara, you will look ridiculous. Long lashes are an integral part of beauty, as they channel the feminine side of one’s personality, and complete every look.

Lip Tint

The lip tint is very important, because very often we can put on a gloss or balm, but our lips still remain colorless. Running a lip tint on the middle of your lips can transform your look, as it adds the last touch to the dewy effect, making your face glow.
