A lot of people think that women wear makeup to impress men, when in all actuality they do it to compete with women. From my experience, men actually prefer the way that most women look without makeup as opposed to the way they look with it on. My husband tells me this all the time, but I usually ignore him because I like the way I look with makeup better than I do without. With that in mind, it is nice to know that he sees me as a beautiful creature even when I look my ugliest. The men in your life may think the same thing. Here are some tips to help you achieve a stunning natural look without having to cake on a second face.
One of the first things you need to do to have a great natural look is keep your skin as clear as possible. If you have a lot of acne marks or blackheads, you may not look as attractive as you should. Find a good facial cleanser that works for you, and try to stick with it as long as you can. You may want to use something like Proactiv to keep your skin looking smooth and supple. With clear skin, you will have a great foundation for your all natural look.
Whiten Your Teeth
A white smile is also a key component to a great natural look. You may have naturally white teeth at the moment, which means that you won’t have to worry about this step. If you have discoloration issues though, you may want to invest in some sort of whitening solution. This could be something as simple as using Crest White Strips on a regular basis, or it could involve a trip to the dentist’s office for a professional whitening treatment. Just brighten up your teeth a bit so they shine well when you smile. That will make a big difference in your natural look.
Wear Lip Balm
You don’t have to be 100% natural to still have a natural look to your face. You can apply a little bit of Chapstick to your lips to give them a moist, vivacious appeal. This will be subtle, but it could transform the way your face looks for the better. All you need is a little bit of shine on your lips to make them look enticing an inviting. If you have the right lip balm to use, you could easily make your smile stand out on your face. Test this theory out a few times and see what you think. It may be more important than you realize.
Avoid Fussy Hairdos
You can’t pull off a natural look if you have unnatural looking hair. This isn’t to say that you cannot fix your hair before you go out. You just need to fix it in a way that complements your natural look. By avoiding updos and crazy hair concoctions, you will have the best chance at getting compliments on your look in the future. People will definitely do a double take if they think you look good “au naturale.”
You may not think that you look good without makeup, but a lot of other people probably do. Women have been raised to think that makeup is the key to being beautiful, but that is not the case at all. Try to reduce the amount of makeup you wear in the day and see what sort of looks you get. You may be pleasantly surprised by what you find.
