Having a full face of makeup might be in but sometimes you just want a break and want something more natural. Not completely no-makeup but just a bit to enhance what you already have. Let’s take Maris Racal as an example. She recently posted a photo on Instagram and she looked bomb.
Her skin looked flawless, and slightly bronze and glowy too. She even had some lip gloss for extra shine. Her eye makeup was simple too but they really popped. After seeing this, we wanted to see what we would need to recreate something similar. Thinking the same thing? Here’s what you need.
For your base, go for something light, similar to Maris. This foundation is long-lasting and it has a natural finish. If you want full coverage, use a brush to apply this on your face. For an airbrushed look, use a sponge or even your fingers. Available on Zalora.
Maris also has a slight contour to her face. For this, you can use a liquid bronzer. It is long -lasting and non-streaky. You can use it to contour or to add an overall sunkissed glow to your skin. All you have to do is mix a small amount with your moisturizer. Available at SM Makati.
She also had on minimal eye makeup. Make your eyes even more bold and striking with black eyeliner. Create a thick stroke along your upper lash line. This eyeliner from K-Palette is waterproof and the formula is made to last for up to 24 hours. It has a soft tip that will easily glide onto your eyelids. Available at Beauty Bar branches.
Put the Instagram brows on hold for this look and go for something natural. All you need is a pencil to fill in any bald spots you might have. This definer pencil is ultra-fine so you can easily apply hair-like strokes. There is a spoolie on the other end so you can blend in the product and any harsh lines. Available at Watsons branches.
Draw even more attention to your eyes with mascara. Don’t have an eyelash curler on hand? Not to worry because this mascara has a curved wand that will help pull lashes into a curve. It lifts and lengthens lashes, and gives an eye-opening effect. Available on Sephora PH.
Aside from the wide eyes, you will also notice the glow on her cheek. It has a wet look to it in a light pink shade. For everyday, you can use this liquid highlighter from J.Cat. This is designed for all skin tones and types so dab a small amount of this on your face. For more glow, you can also mix this into your primer or foundation. Available at Uptown Mall.
Love the natural color of your lips and just amp it up with a bit of shine. Similar to Maris, cop a clear lip gloss. This topcoat has a mirror-like finish and has a formula that will last. Tap this on the center of your lips or apply it all over. Available at Watsons branches.
