Some women like to look natural and others like to look glam. Some don’t know how to pull off one or the other. This article outlines ways to highlight your natural beauty with your makeup application, how you especially care for your body as part of your beauty routine, and which clothes will be most likely to put you on center stage.
Get a Glow
Use a body scrub to exfoliate all of your body’s dead skin while you take a shower. When you get out of the shower, pat yourself dry and use a gradual faux tanning lotion such as award-winning, Jergen’s Natural Glow, to give your skin a sun-kissed warmth.
Wear Minimal Makeup
Your natural beauty makeup kit consists of only a liquid or mineral powder foundation, bronzer, pink blush, black or brown mascara, and a particular color of lipstick. The trick to choosing the right natural beauty enhancing lipstick is to match the color of your nipple as closely as possible. Once you’ve applied your “face”, smile and blush the apples of your cheeks. Suck in you your cheeks and bronze your cheekbones, the bridge of your nose lightly, and your temples and middle of your forehead where the sun would naturally kiss. Curl your lashes with an eyelash curler and apply just enough mascara to give contrast. Apply your “personalized” lipstick and your makeup is complete!
Jennifer Love Hewitt once admitted in an interview that she liked to sit in a steamy bathtub after she’d applied her makeup for a date. It set her makeup and gave her a healthy glow!
Special Occasion Hair
The great thing about highlighting your natural beauty is that it looks effortless, and sometimes, is. Although a blow out is not effortless, it really highlights your hair’s color, texture, and body. If you cannot get this service done at the salon, you can Google how to do your own at home using a hair dryer and its appropriate barrel piece and a round brush.
Consider supplementing your diet with essential vitamins and minerals. There are vitamins particularly helpful in improving the health and elasticity of hair, skin, and nails, but you can also eat certain foods or drink a protein/nutrition shake to fill in your nutritional gaps. Scrub your hands with an exfoliating product or brush, and soak them in milk to make them silky smooth. Manicure your nails and paint them with a strengthening, clear top coat.
Wear Clothes That Compliment Your Favorites
What are your favorite features? What features do you get most complimented on? Write down these features on paper and take the list to your closet where you’ll “shop” for articles of clothing that show off these features. Curate a few outfits with the pieces you’ve selected, and keep this list in mind next time you go apparel shopping.
