Fresh Faced Beauty

No matter how you like to do your makeup or what age you are, every woman should have a basic, natural look in her arsenal of beauty weapons. Today's post is all about a fresh faced, glowy makeup look that any woman can do. It's perfect for beginners, for teens, for all you gals on the go, and for anyone who may not like wearing a whole lot of makeup. This look is super easy and can be done in five minutes. Seriously. It's natural, yet looks perfectly polished and put together. I also made sure that this look included steps to enhancing a beautiful glow. Think "bright" and "radiant" when you do this look, and have everyone guessing what it is that's making you glow. It'll be our little secret. Pinky promise.

 Step 1: Even out your skin tone with a tinted moisturizer or a BB cream. Foundation will just take too long to blend and will cover up your already beautiful skin.

Step 2: Blend a highlighting concealer underneath your eyes to get rid of any darkness. Nobody looks fresh and vibrant with dark, sleepy eyes.

Step 3: Sweep a bronzer right under the cheekbones and around the temples. This will add a little color and warmth to the skin. Just be sure the bronzer isn't too orange or too dark for your skin tone to avoid looking dirty or muddy.

Step 4: Sweep a light shimmery highlighting powder on top of the cheekbones, brow bones, and tear ducts. This will catch the light and instantly add radiance to your face. It's insane how much this one little step packs a huge punch in any makeup look.

Step 5: Sweep a vibrant blush on your cheeks to instantly add a youthful glow. Girls with pink undertones should stick with more pink hues, while those with yellow undertones should stick to more peachy or coral shades when choosing a cheek color.

Step 6: Since there isn't any shadow or liner in this look to save time, apply two coats of mascara to the top and bottom lashes to add some definition to those beautiful eyes of yours. And if you have an extra minute, curl your lashes as well to open the eyes up a little more.

Step 7: Apply a nude pink lipstick, gloss, stain, or whatever product you like, to the lips to top off the look.

And there you have it. In only seven steps, these quick tricks will subtly enhance your natural beauty effortlessly. Now go put your best face forward and conquer the day!
