1. CLEANSING

Wash your face thoroughly and remove all of the previous traces of makeup. You can use makeup removal, wipes, micellar water or face wash you use on everyday basis. If you have dry skin, you can use natural remedies such as coconut oil to remove your makeup, as it will leave it hydrated and pure.

2. MOISTURIZING

To avoid tired and ashy looking skin, you need to keep your skin hydrated. Depending on your skin type, you’ll need a more or less emollient moisturizer. If you have sensitive and dry skin, you can add a couple of drops of serum as it will make an additional protective layer for your skin and protect it from external factors (e.g. weather conditions).

3. SETTING THE BASE

After hydrating my skin, I always apply a primer. It creates a perfect starting canvas for your makeup, making it last longer and looking smoother. I use a cream one because it really soothes my skin, but you can find the ones in form of a gel or powder, too. Use your fingertips to apply it evenly.

4. LIQUID AND POWDER FOUNDATION

An evened out complexion is the key to a natural makeup look for brown eyes. There are many excellent foundations with lightweight formulas on the market, but if you really don’t want to use one – you can stick with BB creams or tinted moisturizers that provide you with very similar results. Choose the one that matches your skin tone. As for the powder foundation, you can skip it if you don’t have a problem with excessive shine and oily skin.

5. ADDING A BIT OF DEFINITION

I personally don’t use a bronzer since I have fair skin. However, I’m a big fan of a dewy look, so I love using a highlighter: a bit of it on the cheekbones, on the eyelids and above the eyebrows will give you a translucent look. You can easily find the one that suits you and order makeup online: a wallet-friendly alternative to using a highlighter is a simple shimmery white eyeshadow. I found out that this solution works when I ran out of my product, so I used the light eyeshadow I already had.
