I love wearing makeup don't get me wrong....but sometimes I want to look natural..yet still cute and pretty? Any advice?
Try using a mineral foundation. Gives you coverage but is not too thick.
Yea I've used mineral makeup before...just want to look less made up with liquid foundation and have a natural glow without packing it on
Mac face and body for me gives me a natural look and matte shadows. I'm sure there are other products out there but from experience I like Mac's Face & Body

Start with moisturizer. Then apply a tinted moisturizer (if needed to even out skin tone), light wash of eyeshadow, medium crease color (if desired), blush, curled lashes, and lip balm. Concealer can also replace the tinted moisturizer if you just have spots and under-eye circles :)
I usually just apply moisturizer, pat on the concealer, bit of bronzer, lip balm, curled lashes, and sometimes eyeshadow and mascara. I love getting dolled up but there is nothing I love more then looking naturally beautiful. Piling on makeup can make you look older and I like to do the opposite. Dramatic looks are fun but I usually only do them for night time.

I agree with Alexandra.. Tinted moisturizer, bronzer, maybe a little blush on the apples of your cheeks. Mascara and lip gloss. My go-to late look. Haha. :)

I just try to get my skin looking as perfect as possible and my brows groomed, then lip balm and brown eyeliner or shadow in the lash line and perhaps curl my eyelashes. Then, I know it's cheesy, I smile and let my hair down. I do find I need to keep checking my blemishes are concealed otherwise I just look like I ACTUALLY have no makeup on, if you get me. I'm also quite liking getting away with just concealer applied with my Sigma P82, I have trouble with foundation oxidising on me and making me look made up. God, this is a rambling comment, sorry, I hope there's something handy in it!
Oh yeah, I like to do a teensy bit of light contouring with Hoola too.

I'd say either a tinted moisturizer or mixing a foundation with a moisturizer would work for a more natural finish. Then, maybe a wash of a light color on your lid and a bit of mascara would finish up the look along with some lip balm.

use mineral make-up. 99% of my life has been spent with me wearing natural make-up so i've mastered that trick :P mineral powders,blushes e.t.c can be buffed into the skin too look natural and flawless.
use just a mineral powder and then swirl a mineral blush along the apples of your cheeks up to your temples.
line your tightline and do a VERY thin line (using pencil mineral liner) along your upper lash line. i flick it out VERY SLIGHTLY at the end of my eye for a flirty look. curl your lashes and apply mascara. i also like to smudge just a TAD of mineral liner along my lower lash line up to about half way in to give an innocent and youthful look.
then use a rose lip colour that's similar to your natural lip colour, and you're all set :)
you'll feel very light and as if you're not wearing anything on your face xx
Just wear pressed powder on your face & a light brush of mascara on your lashes x

If u have blemish free skin with an even tone use mac face and body, it gives a natural dewy finish. Good for dry skin. If your skin is oily or combination you can set the foundation with a light dusting of loose or pressed powder. Light and natural look
