Barely There Makeup: Dewy Skin & Bold Eyes by watereverysunday
Did you see last night's episode of Game of Thrones (Season 8, episode 3)? If you have, you know now winter is gone! Wow, that long night was really really dark and full of terrors. But, that's right. Winter is dead. So that means?... Spring is here!!
Yes, spring is here and it is perfect time to try barely there makeup look. Show off new you, just like the new sprouts and flower bulbs in spring! How about fresh & radiant dewy skin with bold cat eyes? Beauty trend this year is all about beautiful skin radiance from within. So show your inner shine. Show your inner beauty!
In fact, we look best when we look natural. If you have beautiful skin, you don't even need makeup, right? Well... but the reality is no one is perfect, so there goes barely there makeup or no makeup look.
To achieve this, preparing dewy and healthy skin is essential. Then use one point makeup to glorify it so you won't look too bare and maximize the minimal makeup.
Point makeup usually means where your color makeup is focused on. So one point is, in most cases, it is either on eyes or lips. If both eyes and lips then that would be called a full makeup. In this blog post, cat eyes are used as one point makeup. If you are lip person, leave eyes relatively bare and use your favorite red or pink lipstick for the look. Bare does not mean literally bare but use primer or base makeup to blend in to have the natural look.
The first step for this barely there makeup look is to prepare dewy skin. Minimally cover your blemishes and show your natural skin textures and things like freckles. Add some healthy glow with multi-stick blush to eyes, lips and cheeks. Add clear radiance using translucent powers. Don't forget mascara to wake up your eyes, which does make a big difference. If don't want mascara at least curl your eyelashes.
