No Makeup Makeup

Hello everyone!

It’s Natalia from Ma Nouvelle Mode and I am back today for another beauty tutorial!  I have been trying to switch things up from hair to makeup each month, so this week I have a makeup tutorial for you.  With the weather changing into the beautiful season we call spring I thought this would be a perfect fit.  It’s called ‘No Makeup, Makeup.’

I don’t know about you, but when the weather starts getting warm the last thing I want on my face is gobs of makeup.  I love spring and summer months because for some reason I feel like I have free reign for little to no makeup and messy hair.  Somehow it fits!  So today I am going to show you how I achieve that “I’m not wearing any makeup, but ssshhh… because I really am, although it took me 5 minutes” look.  Ready?

Yep, you guessed it, those products are all you need!  Lip gloss, bronzer, mascara, concealer, eye liner, & tinted moisturizer.

First you apply the concealer where you need it.  And for a tired momma like me, I probably need a little more!  Not too much because the whole idea is to keep it light.  Then apply a layer of tinted moisturizer.  I use either e.l.f. brand or Cover Girl, both are cheap and work great.  In fact, they become my ‘go-to’ foundation in the summer months.

Now here is where you want to be careful.  We are trying to make it look like you aren’t wearing any makeup.  So when you are putting on your eyeliner, make sure your pencil is sharpened well.  As can see in the photo on the left, put the tip of your pencil right between the lashes and the lid, not directly on the lid.  Smudge along the lash line into the lashes without getting it up on you eye lid.  Using a brown liner also helps keep the look natural.  Then apply a coat of mascara.

Now to finish up the look, apply some bronzer to your cheek bones, kind of like blush.  Or you can apply it all over your face for more of a sun kissed look.  Just make sure it’s not an oopmah loompah kind of sun-kissed, if you know what I mean!  Then you can apply some neutral lip gloss of lip stick.  My favorite is this e.l.f. lip gloss in honey do.  

And there you have it! Easy, right?  In less than five minutes you look lovely, natural and effortlessly beautiful!  

Well, what do you think?  How do you usually do your makeup in the spring and summer months?  

Thank you so much for reading, and if you have any requests for any kind of beauty tutorial, leave them in the comments, I would love to give them a try for you!
