As the New Year is fast approaching, many of us will be crafting our New Year’s resolutions. For me, flawless skin has always been a goal, so if your resolution is to feel confident in natural makeup that shows off your beautiful complexion, you’ve found the right makeup artist!
If you want to skip everything and go straight to the good stuff, get your FREE color consultation to receive your perfect shade match within 24 hours!
Instead of coating your face with thick, full-coverage products, embrace your skin with a super-natural, glowy makeup look. I created and use a technique called the Fusion Method, which helps me create super natural but super glowy makeup looks using a variety of products. Mimetic zones (which we’ll cover more a little later in this blog) help to determine what products you’ll use where, and with a little practice, you’ll be feeling confident in your natural skin!
Here, I’m sharing a few quick tips to help you start the new year off right with your skin. Without further ado, here are a few strategies for owning your natural beauty:
Treat Your Natural Skin with Love
A bit of self-love never hurts. Before you dive into the world of makeup, remember to give your natural skin some necessary love and attention daily.
Below are several tips for giving your natural skin the treatment it deserves:
Consider a simple skincare routine. Your skincare routine doesn’t have to be lengthy or complex. It can be as simple as remembering to wash your face and remove your makeup right before bed!
Hydrate your body. Drinking plenty of water throughout the day can lead to clear skin and flush out any harmful toxins. Over time, you’ll notice how glowy and light your skin will feel.
Moisturize dry, flaky skin. Keep your skin smooth and soft with a creamy moisturizer, especially during the colder months. Have a beloved moisturizer? If you haven’t already, include that moisturizer into your skincare routine.
Use a sun protectant. To avoid possible sun damage, sunscreen application is necessary for morning skincare. Look for a sunscreen that offers UVA and UVB protection with an SPF of 45 or greater.
Stop using skin irritants. If your skin gets irritated by a certain makeup product, remove that product from your routine immediately. If you’re experiencing any reaction to a product, consult your dermatologist or doctor.
Learn Your Mimetic Zones
Now, let’s talk about your mimetic zones, otherwise known as the high- and low-impact areas on our faces.
Ultimately, makeup application is a science. Understanding how and where to apply makeup on your high- and low-impact mimetic zones will give you lighter, natural coverage. That means zero caked-on makeup! Sounds ideal, right?
Low-impact mimetic zones lack texture or movement on the face, whereas high-impact mimetic zones are areas with high movement or texture. However, high-impact facial zones do not warrant a full-coverage foundation or concealer. This is when color correctors, specifically customized color-correcting palettes, come in handy.
Color-correcting palettes provide a light, natural-looking alternative to a heavy concealer by neutralizing any dark spots and eliminating redness using complementary colors. Complementary colors in cosmetics are the secret to eliminating any skin discoloration. If you didn’t know, now you know!
During your free color consultation, you will uncover which makeup products to use on your mimetic zones, so you can achieve that desirable, barely-there makeup look right from home.
Discover Your Perfect Color Match
Don’t know the proper colors for your skin tone? Once you learn your mimetic zones, you’ll want to get color matched. A perfect color match will enhance your beautiful features, instead of masking your skin under heavy, opaque products.
Receiving an exact color match makes shopping for makeup products much easier! Once you know the proper colors that match your skin tone perfectly, you can apply your makeup without breaking the bank. Also, when you start using products that work well with your skin type, you avoid feeling greasy or heavy under layers of product.
The color matching process is quick, easy, and an integral part of our free color consultation. Get your expert color match here! It only takes a few minutes to fill out the color match form, and in 24 hours you’ll receive your shade match.
Don’t Stress Over Discoloration
Have an uneven skin tone? Don’t fret. It’s very common! Truthfully, flawless skin is not all that common. Our natural skin is quite dynamic and varied, and it’s a beautiful thing.
For any blemishes you may not want to draw attention to, color correctors are a minimal, flexible solution that gives you light, clear skin. Once you know your colors, look for products that match your skin tone and apply them gently to the skin.
