Hey loves! My name is Lydia, a fashion, beauty, and lifestyle blogger over on my blog "Where the Pretty Things Are". I contacted Brittany a few weeks ago to see if she'd be interested in a collab/guest post and she said yes! I was pretty psyched, not gonna lie. You can see Brittany's post on my blog, just click here. We're both doing our rendition on a no-makeup makeup tutorial. Let's get started on this awesome makeup look, shall we?

I love doing a natural makeup look for my everyday look. Although most of the time, I'll spruce it up by adding a bright lip color or contouring my face or using eyeliner. Today, we're just focusing on just a few products. Makeup is all about enhancing those beautiful features of yours, and a natural/no-makeup look is the best way to do that.
Before I go into the tutorial, let's do a brief review of the difference between tinted moisturizer, BB cream, and CC cream. Tinted moisturizer is very simple, it's a very sheer and light coverage to give you color plus a little more. BB cream stands for blemish balm, it's lighter foundation but heavier than tinted moisturizer. CC cream stands for color correction. It's the same coverage as BB cream but focuses on addressing issues like redness or yellowness. A few of my favorites include: Yves Saint Laurent (CC cream), Nars (TM), Dr. Jart Dis-A-Pore (BB),  and the one I'm using Dr. Jart Black Detox  (BB)
Now, it's time for the tutorial! Who's excited?๐Ÿ™‹๐Ÿฝ


1. Apply primer and BB/CC/tinted moisturizer.
2. Dab on some concealer over BB cream and brush some finishing powder all over your face.
3. Apply blush to the apples of your cheeks (I spread out a little more) and mascara to your eyelashes.
4. Line lips with lip liner and fill in with lipstick/gloss.

1. For a natural look, be sure to either use CC cream, BB cream, or tinted moisturizer. Foundation is to heavy and won't create a "no-makeup" feature on your face.
2. Always try to use a brush or beauty blender on your face. This creates a flawless finish and will give the appearance of beautiful skin. It also helps your cream and concealer to stay on longer. If you don't have a brush or blender, dab on your concealer for a longer-lasting and natural look.
3. Apply your mascara really really close to your lash line. This will give the appearance of a very thin line of eyeliner without the trouble.
4. Use a natural-colored lip liner and lipstick/gloss that enhances the color of your lips and will give the look of all-natural.
5. The concealer I'm using (itCosmetics Bye Bye Under Eye) you only need a tiny tiny bit. Maybe 1/4 of  the size of a pea. Seriously. It's works amazingly well, and this tiny bottle has lasted me almost a year!
6. I blend in my blush using my beauty blender to create a more natural pink to my cheeks.

  1. Lydia!! I love this look, you make it look so easy. And your brows are on serious fleek! Any good foundations for acne-prone skin that still are natural looking??
