What Does Natural Makeup Actually Mean?

Natural makeup is one of the biggest mysteries out there, mostly because the term ‘natural’ is used quite loosely. Natural simply means that no matter the amount of makeup you apply, you are aiming to look as if you are not wearing any at all. Therefore, creating a flawless natural look is incredibly difficult: it’s all about the details. You have to find the perfect blush that blends but contours well, perfect foundation that is second-skin like and, most importantly, you have to learn about light.

To create a flawless natural look, it is crucial to understand how to contour and accentuate your cheekbones and create an air of luminosity and brilliance. Sound difficult yet? Well, it should. It usually takes just as long to create a natural look as to get completely made up. Considering that we’re still in college and (should) have rather healthy, young and glowing skin, many of us can get away with not wearing a full face. For some, using a face wash, face cream and making sure to remove all makeup at the end of the day can suffice for great skin. For those who feel they need something extra, the natural look may be important to perfect.

Last summer, Burberry launched their first makeup line. Personally, I did not know what Burberry could offer to an already saturated cosmetics market, but after watching the video below, there is definitely something there. They seem to have a focus on the natural look and are selling products that help create flawless complexion and radiance: two things women will always pay for. Similarly to Burberry’s goal, Bare Minerals is a brand that focuses mainly on creating tones and textures that blend seamlessly to create a perfect natural look.

Here is a look at how to create a natural look with Burberry products:

And for those who want to know more about the natural look and makeup application in general, Bobbi Brown Makeup Manual is definitely a helpful guide.
