“No Makeup” Look

There are a lot of women who do not like or do not have time to wear makeup, although they still want to look better every day or to enhance a feature of their appearance.
There is a solution for them, of course, which I will write about below.

First of all, clean and moisturize your face with the proper moisturizer before any makeup is applied. If your face looks flawless, you can skip the foundation and apply just a concealer to cover the shadowed areas.
If you were not blessed with the most perfect skin, then apply a foundation that has a dewy finish, so not only will make you look even but it will also make you look glowing. Set it up with a translucent loose powder and add a sheer blush on your cheeks.

If you want to accentuate the eyes, you can add a natural color eye shadow over the entire lid and line the inside rim of the eyes, both the upper and the bottom one, using a brown, black or grey kohl pencil, just to add some definition. This will also make the lashes look fuller.
Also, apply one coat of brown or black mascara and you are almost done. The eyebrows should be well groomed and filled in very soft, for this it is better to use a powder eyebrow color rather than a pencil, as it will go on softer. Stay as close as you can to your natural hair color when doing the brows.
For the lips, if you still want them to look natural, go with a lip balm or a sheer lipstick in their natural color or simply, just apply a transparent lip gloss.

And now…ready to leave the house with “no makeup”: who might say you wear it? 😉

How To Apply Sun-Kissed Makeup

makeupbydiana-com_sun-kissed_makeupWe all know that the sun is one of the biggest enemy of the skin aging, but some of us still spend hours trying to achieve that tanned look. I personally am so afraid of taking a sunbath, but love at the same time the sun-kissed look. So here it is how you can get a sunny glow without damaging your skin.
Apply a tinted moisturizer first or a foundation that gives you a sheer or medium coverage. Make sure you dust a little loose powder to set it but at the same time to create a smooth base for the bronzer that is to be applied.

Time for the bronzer, my favorite for every summer! You can apply it by using a Kabuki brush, making sure you shake any excess off before. Consider that when we tan, we do not get an evenly color. So go just over the areas that are more exposed. The easiest way to apply the bronzer is drawing the number three on each part of the face, starting with the forehead, continuing with the cheek and ending at the jaw line. Then add a little product over the bridge of the nose, neck and décolletage.

The best eye shadow color to illuminate the eyes is bronze. It will go with any eye color. Other colors that would work are golds, browns, beiges, preferably in a shimmery texture. If you want to skip the shadow, just a pencil in the colors that I have mentioned would look beautiful, as well. Black or brown mascara and you are almost done!
For the lips I recommend to keep them natural, just add a little gloss over.

And do not forget: if the sun is there, use a high SPF to protect your skin.
