Natural make-up is a make-up look that almost looks like no make-up has been applied on ones face to achieve the look. It leaves a more natural look as it is done using minimal make up and it also feels light on the skin.
Here is a guide on how to do natural make up look
1. Wash and Moisturizer
To nail a natural make-up look, you need to have a flawless skin to avoid using too much concealer. Maintaining a strict exfoliating and cleansing routine gives a flawless, smooth and radiant skin. This, in return makes it possible to achieve a perfect natural make-up look with minimal concealer . Invest on a lightweight moisturizer which has SPF to protect your skin from the sun.
A primer is supposed to prepare your skin for make-up by reducing the appearance of the skin pores. It also gives a smooth texture to your skin. So, to get a perfect natural make-up look, invest in a good primer
3. Foundation and Concealer
Remember the whole essence of natural make up is to appear like you almost don’t have make up on.

Don’t forget to work on your eyes, to fill in your eyebrows, use a brown pencil which gives a more natural look, check that the color matches your natural hair color. Mascara also comes in handy for lengthening and volumizing lashes when used on both top and lower lashes. But use it moderately, remember we are going for a natural look.
