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
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.
Clarins Lip Perfector in 01 Rose-Shimmer
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:
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.
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.
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.
- 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.
- 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.
- Lip Liner
Pick the same 4-in-one makeup pen and outline your lips with the lightest nude shade from the set.
- 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.
