Create a natural makeup look
Trying-but-not-trying; how to get that oh-so-chic, fresh-faced makeup look...
A natural makeup style is just the thing for everything from everyday to special days. When you want a look that heightens the best of what nature gave you, without going overboard, then the fresh-faced makeup look is the perfect choice. Our how-to guide won't steer you wrong...
Always be prepared
Good skin preparation pays off dividends when it comes to that fresh-faced, ‘no-makeup’ makeup look. So give your face a gentle yet thorough cleanse with Ultraplant cleanser, and if time isn’t of the essence; a good scrub to remove dull surface skin cells.
Skin tints and highlighters are superb for achieving a radiant complexion with minimal product and effort. For a fabulous, fresh-faced makeup look, choose your shade from our range of 40 shades of Slap Stick solid foundations and swipe a little onto the cheeks, forehead and chin. This dewy coverage skin saviour will blend out seamlessly, giving the skin a gorgeous glow thanks to its host of skin-loving ingredients such as argan oil, coconut oil and buildable pigments. To rejuvenate the under-eye area, swipe a little of your chosen shade of Trix Stick concealer, and blend out for a refreshed, skin-like finish.
With skin prepped and ready to go, it’s time to glow. Glow Stick highlighters are packed full of skincare benefits and powered entirely by plastic-free sparkle. Swipe onto the cheekbones, the Cupid’s bow and the brow bone for a subtle pop of luminosity. Blend out this cream formula with the fingers or for a more subtle, diffused appearance, blend out with Glow to Town highlighter brush.
Don’t just stop there! These solid highlighters are so versatile that they can even be used on the lips and eyelids for added shimmer if you so choose. Last but not least, take a little of our Charisma skin tint onto your ring finger and stipple onto the apples of the cheeks for a flush of fresh-faced radiance.
The eyes have it
We can all agree that sometimes even the windows to our soul need a little pick me up! Open them up with Eyes Right mascara; it's gentle wheatgrass formula is perfect for everyday use. For a higher impact lash look, try Lush Lashes, featuring ingredients such as beeswax, wheatgrass and acacia gum, this gentle mascara harnesses powerful, natural ingredients to add volume and length to your lashes.
The perfect nude
Within our collection of 21 vegan lipsticks, you'll find several nude shades, perfect for a wide range of skin tones. For a barely-there colour designed for deeper complexions, go for a shade like Minsk, Kish or Saidoun. Simply swipe your favourite shade onto the lips for a subtle pop of colour and hydration. For lighter complexions, choose a shade like Beit-ed-Dine, Riga, or Cairo to complete your look.
Last but not least, take your People Powder brush and a minimal sweep of Emotional Brilliance powder onto the skin, concentrating on the t-zone. A little goes a long way, so simply touch up those areas around the nose and chin and you’re good to go. This radiant setting powder keeps your base in place all day and thanks to its balanced jojoba oil formula, you can still achieve a matte (but not flat) radiant finish!
