Preparing the Skin: Get the Perfect Base
Okay, I’m going to be real with you. The key to achieving a natural glam look is all in the preparation. Before applying any makeup, I always start by ensuring that my skin is perfectly prepped for makeup application. This means starting with a freshly washed face as well as moisturizing and priming the skin so that it’s perfectly smooth and hydrated before applying any foundation.
After cleansing and toning, I always massage a lightweight moisturizer onto my face to give it some extra hydration. Then, it’s time to prime the skin. I love using a primer because it blurs my pores and makes my foundation look smoother and more even. Some of my favorite primers are the Smashbox Photo Finish Primer, Hourglass Mineral Veil Primer, and the Too Faced Hangover Replenishing Face Primer.
Another step that I never skip when it comes to prepping my skin is using an under-eye cream to tackle any puffiness or dark circles. The PIXI DetoxifEYE Gel is my go-to because it instantly brightens my under-eye area and helps my makeup go on smoother.

Creating a Natural Glow
Now we get to one of the most important steps in creating a natural glam look: achieving that radiant, beautiful glow. It all starts with the foundation and concealer. I like to use a lightweight foundation that matches my skin tone perfectly and a concealer that is a shade lighter than my foundation. Applying a light layer of each, I blend them out with a damp beauty sponge for a flawless finish.
Once the base is set, it’s time to add some color. Start with a bronzer that is just a shade or two darker than your skin tone. I love to use a fluffy brush to apply the bronzer to the hollows of my cheeks, temples, and jawline for a natural-looking contour effect. Next up, blush! Choose a rosy shade that complements your skin tone and apply it to the apples of your cheeks with a blush brush.
To really make that natural glow pop, you don’t want to forget the highlighter. I like to use a powder highlighter that has a bit of shimmer to it. Apply it to the high points of your face: the tops of your cheekbones, the bridge of your nose, and your cupid’s bow. For an extra dazzling look, you can even add a bit of highlighter to the inner corners of your eyes and the center of your eyelids.
With these simple steps, you’ll have a natural, yet glamorous, glow that is sure to turn heads. Remember to blend out all of your products for a seamless finish, and don’t be afraid to experiment with different shades to find the perfect look for you.
Enhancing the Eyes
Hey there, beautiful! Let’s talk about how to enhance your gorgeous eyes for a natural glam look.First things first, we want to choose eyeshadow colors that complement your eye color. For brown eyes, shades of gold, bronze, and green work wonders. Blue eyes pop with warm peachy shades. Green eyes dazzle with pink and purple hues. Apply the shadow all over the lid and blend upwards into the crease.Next, we want to create a subtle yet glamorous eyeliner look. I like to use a brown pencil liner on the top lash line and smudge it out for a smoky effect. For the bottom lash line, I use a light beige liner to brighten and open up the eyes.Now, let’s talk mascara. When looking for the perfect mascara, we want to find one that lengthens and volumizes without clumping or flaking. Wiggle the wand at the base of your lashes and work your way up to the tips for maximum impact.And there you have it, stunning! Don’t forget to frame your eyes with nicely groomed brows using a spoolie and pencil or powder to fill them in. With these few simple eye steps, you’ll be turning heads everywhere you go.
Get Ready to Finish Off Your Natural Glam Look!
Alright, we’re almost done! After following these steps, your natural glam look is almost complete. Now we just need to add a few finishing touches to really make it pop.
Lip Color Options
For a natural glam look, I suggest sticking to natural lip shades. A nude or pink gloss or lipstick can really complete the look without being too bold. If you’re feeling extra adventurous, a red lip can also work well. Just make sure to keep the rest of your makeup simple.
Tips for Perfect Eyebrows
Your eyebrows can really make or break a look, so it’s important to get them just right. I suggest using a brow pencil or powder to fill them in, starting at the arch and working your way outwards. Make sure to blend any harsh lines with a spoolie brush for a more natural look.
Don’t Forget About Setting Spray
Finally, after applying all of your makeup, use a setting spray to keep it in place all day. This will also help give your skin a dewy, natural-looking finish. Just hold the bottle a few inches away from your face and spray a few times to set your makeup.
And that’s it! With these finishing touches, your natural glam look is complete. Remember to have fun with it and make it your own!
