HOW TO: The “no makeup” Makeup Look

**(YOUTUBE TUTORIAL AT BOTTOM OF POST) **

These days I have really been digging the “no makeup” makeup look. Most of you know I LOVE makeup and I love going all out. My daily go-to makeup usually consists of a well defined brow paired with a smoky eye of sorts, but recently I’ve decided to tone it down a bit. I’ve been digging it a lot – there is nothing prettier than natural and nothing better than using makeup to enhance the beautiful features you already have!

This look mainly focuses on having a dewy/glowy complexion, full & unstructured brows, and soft, wispy lashes. The most important step in this look is priming & prepping your skin prior to applying makeup. Wash your face, moisturize the heck out of it, and WEAR SUNSCREEN!  I also like to mix one drop of jojoba oil into my foundation for hydration and a dewy/natural finish. I recommend this step – it blends out foundation like a dream and looks so beautiful!

P.S. I’ve been receiving a lot of questions about my freckles in the photos. They are NOT real! I drew them in with an eyebrow pencil! I felt like they pulled the look together perfectly and made it look even more effortless. I loooove freckles but unfortunately was not blessed with them. But that’s the beauty of makeup – you can add and erase things as you please.
