What Is A Natural Makeup Look?

Before we get into showing you exactly how to create a natural makeup look for yourself, let’s clarify what exactly a natural makeup look is. Natural makeup looks are all about enhancing your features without making it look too obvious that you are wearing makeup. The goal is to emphasise your natural beauty rather than covering it up. This look is all about minimalistic use of makeup products to achieve a natural look. This look focuses on skin majorly with just a hint of blushing colour on the cheeks and lips.

How To Create A Natural Makeup Look

Creating a natural makeup look is simpler than you might think. You’ll only need a few key products, a steady hand, and some practice. Here’s a step-by-step guide to get you started on your journey to achieving a natural makeup look.

1. Use A Cleanser

The first step in any natural makeup look routine is to clean your skin of dirt and impurities. Cleansing is the first step of both any skincare routine and makeup routine. Cleansing your face gets rid of dirt, excess oil, and unclogs pores. Opt for a gentle, nature-infused face cleanser to maintain your skin’s pH and also keep your skin fresh and hydrated. 

Youthful Glow Face Wash: Saffron & Oat Milk

Make your skin glow with this nature-infused face wash. It is enriched with saffron and oat milk to nourish the skin and bring on your natural radiance. The formula has a grainy gel texture which is great for gently exfoliating the skin too. It also never leaves the skin feeling dry but rather it makes your skin feel dewy, fresh, and hydrated. It suits all skin types. 

MyGlamm SUPERFOODS Cacao & Berry Face Wash

Deep clean your skin and make it super soft and supple with this amazing face wash. Enriched with superfoods like cacao, strawberry, mulberry, and black currant, this face wash nourishes the skin and makes it look brighter.

2. Apply Moisturiser

Always moisturise after cleansing, no matter your skin type. Moisturising will improve your skin texture naturally and that’s why it works well even under makeup. If you have oily skin, pick a gel-based moisturiser and if you have dry skin, pick a richer cream moisturiser.

Anti-Pigmentation Face Cream: Kakadu Plum, Acai Berry & Almonds

This amazing face cream delivers the benefits of almonds for skin with every use. The richly nourishing cream also promises to brighten skin as that is one of the biggest benefits of vitamin C for skin which happens to be another hero ingredient in this cream. The skincare product is certified organic and is perfect for a natural glow.

Manish Malhotra Amla Moisturising Gel

This lightweight moisturiser has a gel formula that feels so refreshing. Infused with amla and aloe vera juice, it is great for all skin types and is especially amazing for oily skin types. The luxurious moisturiser does not leave any sticky residue on the skin.

3. Prep With A Primer

After applying skincare products and before beginning to apply any kind of makeup products, make sure to apply a makeup primer. You can even use a BB cream that has skin priming benefits under makeup for a more even-toned coverage that looks good for natural makeup looks. If you want a more matte skin effect, opt for a matte makeup primer, and if you want a dewy base, go in for an illuminating makeup primer.

Organic Harvest Weightless BB Cream

This BB cream literally improves skin texture naturally thanks to its skincare-infused formula. It also delivers the benefits of castor oil for skin while being super lightweight and mattifying. The tinted formula evens out the skin tone and also doubles as a mattifying tinted makeup primer.

Manish Malhotra Luminous Moisturising Primer

If you want a super glowy base, try this illuminating primer. It gives the skin the most gorgeous glow without looking greasy and it is also extremely lightweight and non-comedogenic. It blurs out pores and is also sweat-proof and water-resistant.

4. Blend In Foundation

After primer, it is time to apply foundation. Choose a non-comedogenic foundation so that it does not clog your pores and also try a skincare-infused formula as foundation. Makeup with skincare products are a delight to use. Low to medium coverage works great for natural makeup looks too so apply a thin layer and blend well. You can even opt for compact powder foundations as they are super lightweight and perfect for natural makeup looks.

Organic Harvest Soft Matte Compact

This is a must-have makeup product that will save you lots of time and money. This tinted compact powder foundation comes in 3 shades to suit fair, medium, and dark skin tones. It is enriched with vitamin C and almond oil which means it offers skin care benefits while visibly evening out the skin tone and making your skin glow. Vitamin C in skincare is pretty common, but now that it’s in this makeup product, it’s even more easier to use.

MyGlamm Super Serum Foundation

This makeup product is going to become your staple. It is infused with hyaluronic acid to hydrate and soothe your skin while looking totally fab. It has a buildable coverage that evens out skin tone and gives skin a natural matte finish.

5. Swipe On Lipstick

Since natural makeup looks are more minimalistic than all-out glam looks, you can make use of your lipstick in more ways than one. While you swipe on a rosy shade of lipstick on your lips for colour, also take some product on your fingers and dab it on your cheeks and eyes for a little bit of blush and eyeshadow.

Organic Harvest Moisture Matte Lipstick – Soft Chestnut

This lipstick has a certified organic formula that makes it a hybrid makeup product that is a must-have in a makeup kit. The formula is creamy and super hydrating. It is perfect for anyone with dry chapped lips as this lipstick keeps the lips hydrated thanks to ingredients like almond oil. Even the colour payoff is spot on and this shade Soft Chestnut is perfect for natural makeup looks.

POPxo Makeup Mini Lip Kit – No Drama

If you can’t decide on the perfect single nude shade of lipstick, don’t settle. Instead of one lipstick, get 3 beautiful nude lipsticks at the price of one and be assured that they look fabulous on Indian skin tones. This mini lip kit has 3 stunning nude shades with hydrating formulas that are enriched with vitamin E. These lipsticks can even be used as blush to complete your natural makeup looks.

6. Wear Eyeliner

When it comes to eyeliner, go for a soft blendable eyeliner like a kohl pencil for a softer look as this will make your natural makeup look even more stunning. Apply it close to your lash line or in your waterline for the most natural definition. You can even smudge it slightly for a more relaxed and less intense appearance.

Organic Harvest Midnight Kohl

Try this kohl pencil for your natural makeup look and be amazed. The formula is pigmented and enriched with natural ingredients. It even suits sensitive eyes and is easy to blend for a soft smokey effect.

Jet Set Eyes Kajal Eyeliner – Brun

Important Things To Consider While Doing Natural Makeup

Achieving a natural makeup look is all about balance and subtlety. Here are some key factors to keep in mind:

  • Skin Care: A proper skincare routine is essential. Healthy, well-moisturised skin is the foundation for a successful natural makeup look.
  • Product Choice: Select makeup products with a natural finish, avoiding anything heavy or overly matte.
  • Less Is More: Remember, less is often more in the world of natural makeup. Keep your application light-handed.
  • Colour Palette: Stick to neutral, earthy tones for eyeshadow and blush. These shades will complement your natural beauty seamlessly.


What is the difference between natural and neutral makeup?

Natural makeup focuses on enhancing your features while keeping the look minimal like you’re not wearing any makeup. Neutral makeup refers to using neutral, subdued colours, which can be a part of a natural makeup look.

What do you need for a basic makeup look?

For a basic makeup look, you’ll need a gentle cleanser, moisturiser, primer, foundation, subtle lipstick, and eyeliner. It’s all about using minimal, natural-looking products.

What are the essential skincare steps to prepare your skin for a natural makeup look?

Start with cleansing, followed by moisturising. You can also include a gentle exfoliation routine to ensure a smooth canvas for your natural makeup.

How can you choose the right foundation or base makeup for a no-makeup look?

Opt for a lightweight, natural finish foundation that matches your skin tone. Always swatch the product on your jawline to find the perfect shade.

How do you set natural makeup?

To set your natural makeup look, use a translucent setting powder lightly. Focus on areas that tend to get oily, like the T-zone.


Creating a natural makeup look isn’t just about makeup; it’s about embracing your natural beauty by enhancing your features. So, grab your makeup bag, follow these steps, and achieve that effortlessly radiant look you’ve always wanted. Remember, confidence is the best accessory for any natural makeup look.
