Some days, I wonder why I bother with makeup at all, when it’s so much easier to be a natural beauty. Foundation and bronzer, concealer and eye shadow… it’s just too much! If you’re ready to take the plunge and go natural, these tips will help! Let’s go!
Come on, girl, take it all off… all of your makeup, that is! It’s a bold move, but the only way to enhance your natural beauty is to start with a clean palette, and to forego any makeup… at least to start. Let’s move on!
Use a gentle cleanser
Healthy skin is beautiful skin, and the first step is to use a gentle cleanser, one that washes away all the dirt and makeup, but doesn’t strip your skin.
Exfoliate your lips
You don’t need a lip gloss to have full, kissable lips, the natural beauty way. Exfoliate them, and use a lip balm after, to keep them smooth and soft and supple. You can either use an exfoliant designed for lips or simply rub them with a clean, warm washcloth for 60 seconds.
Natural beauties avoid the sun, and if they can’t, they use a good sunblock, one that offers SPF 30 broad-spectrum (UVA and UVB) protection. Why? Sunlight causes wrinkles, sun spots, and worse, cancer!
Use a clear lash enhancer
If you have sparse or light lashes, you might want to cheat just a little and use a clear lash growth serum on your lashes to enhance your natural beauty. Apply at night before bed, and again in the morning after washing, and you’ll notice thicker, darker lashes in as little as 6 weeks. Hooray!
Wash your face before bed
Sounds obvious but I’m always surprised just how many people don’t! Even though you’re not wearing makeup during the day, it’s still important to keep your skin healthy, and enhance your natural beauty, by washing away the dirt and pollution from the day before bed at night.
