How to apply make-up for a natural look

Your rating: None
Natural makeup is an easy way to accentuate your features. It only takes five minutes and you can walk out the door with natural beauty.
What you'll need: 
Powder Brush
Matte Blush
Brown mascara
Tinted lip balm
Apply concealer under your eyes in a 'v' shape using a dabbing motion. This will melt the concealer and blend it into the skin for a natural finish.
Apply a light dusting of powder using the powder brush. This will even out your skin tone.
Apply the matte blusher on the apples of your cheek swooping up towards your hair to accentuate your features. Make sure the colour is soft, peachy tones flatter all colours.
Apply a coating of brown mascara to your lashes, you want to look extremely natural and brown is not as harsh as black. Do not apply to the bottom lashes.
Dab a bit of tinted lip balm on your lips to set off the look.
Use concealer on blemishes or scars.
Always apply moisturiser before applying powder so it stays on.
