If there’s one thing that makes Eastern makeup stand out from the Western makeup trends, it’s the naturalness. We put on our makeup in a way that we look like we don’t have makeup. Embracing our natural look is our thing—we don’t just conceal imperfections with makeup, we fix them with our skin care routines and sometimes, aesthetic treatments.
Here are ten simple tricks that will make you look naturally flawless without wearing makeup:
Shape your Eyebrows
The eyebrows are one of the face’s important features. In western makeup, they always want their brows on fleek while we want ours subtle. The best way to have natural-looking brows is to shape it according to your face and eye shape. People blessed with thicker brows can shape theirs through threading. This process is a lot faster compared to tweezing. 👌
If you have thin brows, you can always run to salons that offer eyebrow embroidery services. Their eyebrow specialists always match your new brows with your important facial features such as hair colour, face and eye shape. If you’re not ready to try eyebrow embroidery to enhance your eyebrows, go natural. Apply castor oil on your brows and massage it to stimulate the hair follicles. Leave it on for 30 minutes before you wash it off with lukewarm water and soap. Do this every day until you’re happy with the improvements. Normally, your new brows will grow out of shape so make sure that you shape it regularly. 😊
Accentuate your Eyes
Make your eyes pop through curling your eyelashes upward. Apply a thin layer mascara to keep it fluttered. If you don’t have naturally long lashes, you can book eyelash extension services from an eyelash salon near you.
Getting rid of dark circles and eye bags also makes your eyes attractive. Applying cold packs and drinking green tea helps in relaxing your eyes, especially before bedtime. In addition, you should wear a night cream with a powerful whitening effect. Try the Hyalogy Daily and Nightly Cream for the Eyes. This unique eye cream brings back the soft and nourished skin, correcting all unsightly blemishes and normalising the skin pigmentation. It also has Japanese herbal extracts which stimulate hair follicles and boost eyelash growth.
Improve your Smile
A woman who isn’t afraid to show off her pearly whites is 100% more attractive! Smile with confidence at all times. Brush your teeth with using a whitening toothpaste especially after drinking teeth-staining liquids such as coffee or wine. If you have naturally grey or yellow teeth, it’s best to get your teeth whitened in a dental clinic near you.
Love your Lips
Your lips also need some love. But I’m not talking about kissing! ( Hahaha! 😀 ) I’m referring to regular moisturisation and exfoliation. Use a lip balm to moisturise your lippies. This will help especially when you like wearing matte lipsticks. Exfoliate your lips once a week using a soft-bristled toothbrush.
More importantly, hydrate yourself with water and eat a balanced meal at all times. 😊
Take care of your Hair
A lot of girls are guilty of not maintaining their coloured or treated hair. As a result, the colour fades and their hair becomes frizzy. 😔 You can avoid any hair disasters in the future through choosing natural hair dyes. Always ask the salon’s colour technician for their recommended shampoo, conditioner, and leave-in treatment. Schedule a regular trim to get rid of your split ends and don’t over style your hair. Curlers, blowers, and irons aren’t your hair’s best friends.
Too much exposure to the sun speeds up the ageing process. This is because ultraviolet radiation hypes the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, and dark spots. People with light complexions are also in danger of skin cancer. So, don’t skip sunscreen! Always use skin care and makeup products with SPF so you’re sure you’re wearing protection whenever and wherever you are.
Don’t rub your skin too much
It’s not ideal to wash your face more than twice a day. First, your skin produces natural oils to keep itself moisturised. Washing this oil off every time only triggers your sebaceous glands to produce more oil.
It’s best to wash your face before bedtime. Follow it up with your regular skincare routine. In the morning, your bath is enough to clean your face. Never rub your skin too much. That means face scrubs or other means to exfoliate your skin should be limited to once a week.
Get enough Sleep
The beauty sleep is not a myth. A complete set of sleep, which lasts from seven to nine hours is essential for keeping your mind and body healthy. It keeps your skin in good condition. 🙂
Think about your current diet
We previously featured Lure Hsu’s skincare secrets here in Beauty Insider. If you can remember, she told the media that she avoids oily foods and she strictly follows a vegetarian diet. We don’t recommend that you follow a celebrity or any famous person’s diet. What we want you to do is to eat a balanced meal and drink at least eight glasses of water every day. 😊 The food you eat will reflect in your skin.
And finally, wear the right colours!
This is more on the fashion side of beauty, but choosing the right colour of your clothes plays an important role on the look of your skin. For example, it’s not advisable for people with pale skin to wear white. Put on clothes with bright colours such as blue, turquoise, emerald, red, or peach. Your clothes can enhance the appearance of your skin. 🙂
