The Natural Look

I know lots of women and teen girls like to pretend that they don't wear make up, but truth is, while not every single woman and teen wears it, a lot do. But in order to make it seem like they're not, they do a very natural look. I, admittedly, wear make up everyday. My skin is fair, so even though my eyelashes are the envy of many girls, you can only see half of them! Also, my face tends to be a little red when I wake up and usually doesn't go away for a few hours. 


This may look like a lot of make up, but it really isn't. Besides, you should never wear a lot of make up, especially when you're a teenager. It makes you break out and clogs your pores. Make sure to wash it all off when you get home. And make up wasn't designed to cover up, it was meant to enhance. 


First, to start off, the foundation. I don't wear actual foundation because I'm not super skilled at putting it on. I haven't been wearing make up for long. I use this Neutrogena SkinClearing Blemish Concealer. It may cover up, but it actually helps to clear and heal your skin and doesn't make you break out. I also use it to cover up the bags and dark shadows under my eyes. The Covergirl powder is just to set the concealer so it doesn't smudge or wipe off. 


After I put on the concealer and powder I will SOMETIMES - not always - I put on this Mac Pro Longwear Paint Pot (shade Let's Skate). It's also used as a base for regular eye shadow, but it can be used by itself. I don't always use it but I will use it for pictures, or nicer occasions. Sometimes I wear just because I feel like it. 


Then there's the Mac Mineral Eyeshadow. I don't use all shades, I just use the silver shade. I put it in my tear ducts to make my eyes more awake. I get up at 6:00 am for school everyday, and I want my eyes to look bigger and more awake. 


Mascara is the last of the eye make up I apply. I will only put on two coats so that it still looks natural. This mascara is very natural my eyelashes look very natural. (Except for the fact that I'm a redhead) 


Last, but not least, is my lipgloss. Smashbox is one of my favorite lip gloss companies. I only use lip gloss because I prefer to more emphasize my blue eyes and long lashes rather than my spaced out, crooked, still growing in teeth. Besides, it would be too much if I wore lipstick. I only wear lipstick if I don't emphasize my eyes or if my eyes are more emphasized than normal. 

All that is just the make up I wear everyday. Not everyday, but to school, to the mall, out to a more casual dinner, hanging out with friends. But obviously on nicer occasions I will go a little more out.

  1. My every day makeup routine is pretty similar, foundation, eye shadow and mascara. On the weekends I jazz it up a bit though! :)

  4. Great post ! I completely agree with you, women often say they don't wear makeup just to show that they're "natural" but that's not true =)
