Natural makeup base, light enough for working out
Most days, I want my skin to look fresh, clear, and like I’m not wearing any makeup. Of course this starts with good skincare. But if you want to give yourself a little boost, this quick natural makeup base is my everyday solution.
When I want my face to look and feel super-natural, I leave out cream-based foundations. That’s what I’ve done here. The result is so light that you could wear it while working out if you wanted to.
I’m a big believer that it’s important to use cosmetics that are also good for your skin. I think it’s worth the investment as it helps to ensure that your skin remains in good condition over time.
I used Ere Perez cosmetics to get this look. The products are all natural and I find that they work well on my skin.
Four easy steps
1. I prepare my skin with a couple of drops of Ere Perez Australian Blue Cypress Face Nectar. It’s a light-weight, balancing oil that gives you a dewy complexion without looking oily.
2. Then I use their Natural Arnica Concealer, which I have previously written about. I use a few dabs to even out the skin tone under my eyes and conceal any blemishes. The great thing about arnica is that it has natural anti-inflammatory properties, so it helps to calm any red spots. I use the ‘Chai’ colour for my skin tone.
3. After concealing, I dust a little bit of their Calendula Powder over my whole face. It helps to smooth over any imperfections and absorb any excess oil without clogging pores. And it still allows your skin to breathe. I use the ‘Medium’ colour for my skin tone.
4. Finally, I use their Natural Almond Brow Pencil to tame by brows, which can get a little crazy. I use the pencil to lightly fill in any gaps, then the handy brush on the lid to brush my brows upwards. This helps to make the eye area look more ‘awake’.
That’s it. It’s pretty simple and takes less than two minutes. You could follow up with some mascara to define your eyes or just leave them for an ultra-natural look.
