Clarins Makeup Tutorial

clarins makeup tutorial

When you are running your own business, it’s not likely that you have an hour or so on creating a perfect YouTube inspired natural makeup look. Saying so, I decided to create a natural look with an edgy twist by using some of my all favorites as well as new products by Clarins.

To create this natural makeup look, I used:

Clarins Instant Smooth Perfecting Touch

This product is perfect for the no-makeup kind of days when you just want your pores to look a bit more presentable and your skin tone—a bit more even.


Clarins Instant Light Brush-On Perfector

I’ve never tried this concealer before, but I truly enjoyed testing it for this makeup tutorial. It’s so perfect for correcting any eyebrow or eyeliner mistakes as well as covering under eye darkness!

Clarins Face Contouring Palette

Spoiler alert: I used this powder contouring kit not only to add dimension to my face but also to emphasize my eyes. The highlighter and bronzer from the kit worked perfectly as neutral eyeshadows.

Clarins 4-Color All-in-One Pen for Eyes and Lips

This limited edition launch by the brand is my absolute favorite as it brings me back to childhood. When all kids had those cool pens that combine a few colors in one.

This is another all-time favorite of mine that I’ve been having in my collection for years. It comes in such a tender shade of pink that looks so natural.

To repeat this look, follow these steps:

  1. Concealer

    Using a concealer pen, apply the product under your eyes and the brow. Blend the under eye area with a beauty blender and use a flat concealer brush to even out the brow line.

  2. Contouring

    Pick up a contouring kit and apply a bronzer onto your crease. Use a highlighter on the inner corner and the center of your eye. Finally, apply the same highlighter shade onto the brow bone to make your eyes stand out even more.

  3. Bronzer

    Using the same contouring kit, apply bronzer onto the forehead and under the cheek. Blend thoroughly. Follow by the blush applied in circular motions moving towards ears. Pick a highlighter and use a light shade from the palette above the blush; connect the brow and cheek highlighter lines.

  4. Upper Lid

    Using a dark brown shade from the 4-in-one makeup pen, outline the upper lid, and create a tiny natural-looking line. Pick a cobalt blue hue and emphasize the lower lid. Blend thoroughly with a small brush or a cotton swab.

  5. Fix Your Mistakes

    If needed, correct the under eyeliner area with the same concealer used in step one of this tutorial. Apply two layers of mascara.

  6. Lip Liner

    Pick the same 4-in-one makeup pen and outline your lips with the lightest nude shade from the set.

  7. Lip Gloss

    Finish the look by applying a lip gloss.

I hope you enjoyed this easy to repeat everyday look. As promised, it was a natural makeup look that is so easy to replicate. More importantly, it takes only a few minutes to finish, so it’s perfect for the days when you need to make yourself look put together while in a hurry.

What is your go-to makeup look that you apply when you are limited in time? What is your favorite product by Clarins?

    i’ve always been curious about the esteemed lauder cushion foundation – how have you been finding it? I’ve been really into cushion foundations lately because they’re so compact and easy to bring around

    I agree, every makeup look starts with flawless skincare and priming! And I love how natural this look is. I love that you used the blue liner for your eyes but did not over do it at all, as some blue eyeliner could make it look crazy. Beautiful as always!

    Well stunning make up as always darling! I have never tried the Instant Smooth from Clarins but i did hear great reviews about it! I love how your make up ended looking really natural. The blue liner on your waterline is also such a nice touch!

    This is a beautiful makeup look. I have to agree with you about taking care of your skin, no matter how much make up you like to wear. I like how you added a little bit of blue liner, it’s super cute.

    I couldn’t agree more with you about taking care of your skin and making sure it is in a good condition before even reaching out to make up. I love Clarins products and my Favourite is the blue orchid oil for my dehydrated skin! The look you have created is really pretty and easy for Everyday wear. If I am in a rush for time, I need to have at least concealer and mascara on before I leave the house!

    This is my decided favorite post of yours! I have to say that I truly want to go out and purchase all of the items you used! I have makeup free days when I just focus on skin care. Surprisingly, I’d never thought about using a primer as a way to reduce pore size for those makeup free days. Thanks for sharing that. Also, the color of your lip crayon is such a beautiful color and will most certainly be in my shopping cart!

    Just having taken the step from a 9-5 job in the day and blogger by night to full time blogger I certainly know what you mean and although I don’t use makeup on a daily basis, more during photo shoots, I do use a primer every now and then to feel fresh and that primer from Clarins sounds like a dreamy product. Thank you for the tip and I’ll definitely opt for the primer! :)

    This is a gorgeous everyday makeup look. I have used Clarins for skincare before, but I haven’t used their makeup range. The Clarins 4 in 1 product looks so amazing, I love multifunctional products and I can totally relate to those pens when we were kids. The blue eyeliner looks beautiful against your eyes and I am loving the Nude lip. So beautiful as always Katya.

  22. You’ve created such a flawless look. I totally agree with you – the skincare routine is the must if you wanna have a perfect and healthy skin and experiment with the makeup at the same time. And yeah, it can be very time consuming. But I’m totally in love with this makeup look, it’s so perfect for the spring season.

  23. I have that palette too – I had a hard time blending with that brush thou. And I love the color just under the eye – It’s such a fun unexpected twist. Such a pretty makeup look! Right now I’m obsessing over Clarins lipsticks. I really need to try that 4-in-1 pencil!

    WOW! You look absolutely stunning! I’d definitely recommend Clarins to anyone who’s in need of reliable and effective makeup. I love how the primer set the base and refreshed your skin, but my favorite was the light, but pleasing effect of the lip gloss. That’s definitely a keeper!

  30. It’s my absolute favorite too! It feels so great on my lips! Also, the color selection is perfect for girls with pale skin like mine!
