When even the queen of power contouring, Kimmy K, has taken a step back from a full face in favour of the natural look, there is certainly something going on. The fresh-faced natural look is upon us, and we’ll be the first to get involved!
After a year of highlighting, strobing, baking and chroming, it’s the perfect time for natural beauty to have its moment. But, if you’re worried about going barefaced for the first time, get your hands on one of the original Konjac Sponges to buff and prep your face for a natural healthy glow.
How ‘au natural’ are we talking?
This is entirely up to you. If you feel like unleashing your birthday face, go right ahead! We salute you. For those who would prefer at least a little cover up, give this a try…
Caring for and preparing your skin
When you get up, grab your Konjac Facial Sponge and soak until soft and squishy. Then, massage around the face in circular motions to boost your circulation and gently coax you awake. This will effectively get rid of all traces of sleep and leave you with the perfect base for your natural look. Make sure to repeat before you go to sleep, removing your makeup the night before is key to clear healthy looking skin!
The ‘no makeup’ makeup
The first step is to find yourself a good, non-comedogenic moisturiser (we’re obsessed with The Body Shop’s Vitamin C Glow Boosting Moisturiser) that will absorb into the skin without blocking your pores. Forget your foundation (I know, bear with us), as your new go-to product for cover-ups should be a tiny amount of concealer, dabbed on gently with your finger. To brighten up your eyes and feign alertness, try a shimmery creamy shadow like Origins’ GinZing eye shadow cream in a natural tone. Done! So simple, our mornings just got a little easier.
What do you think? Will you be going bare this summer?
