How can I make my make up look as natural as possible?

I have a photo shoot to go to and I want to make my make up look as natural as I can because I am only 14 and don't want to much going on with my make up

Baby doll, just wear a little bit of mascara. I bet you're a beautiful girl! So for the rest...just go natural. If you have blemishes that nage the heck out of you though, I would try Saint Ives Apricot or Green Tea face wash for blemish control and acne. Trust me. Within days the blemishes will go away and the acne will diminish. Your face will feel baby smooth right after a wash, and the products are hypoallergenic and have wonderful fragrance.

Good Luck Chica!

After your make up. Try to use some cotton stick on flashing on your face. It will lessen your make up

Dab your make up sponge in water when applying your foundation or concealor. This way it blends perfectly so you don't look like you have paint on your face...or a make up line.

Wear a pale blush, and some a light powder to keep the shine away. And a pale shade of lip stain or gloss.

Don't wear make up. People can tell if your wearing make up even if its a little foundation or eyeliner, just dont wear any at all if you want to have realistic make up, or just wear eyeliner thats all you ned.

Not necessarily if you apply the right amount and the right shade of foundation or cover up depending on your specific needs. The point is to make it look like you're not wearing any while covering up any flaws you may have. I am an Independent Beauty Consultant with Mary Kay. And it is possible to wear makeup without people realizing you have any on.

dont out on that much... all i do is put on a little concealer on my blemishes and dark circles and blend it all out. People always say that my skin is flawless, them not realizing that im wearing a little bit of makeup. for the eyes all you need is mascara and i use black liner on my top water line to make my eyes stand out.

Do for a natural foundation. Such as Nude By Nature. It will allow you to hide blemishes and Uneven skin tone also giving you a nice coverage that is completely natural looking. DO NOT WEAR EYELINER. A little bronzer on your cheeks and mascara with light glossy lips is best. Also try wearing your hair down with loose curls.

try to choose light powders it you have any blemishes but keep in mind foundation can be particularly bad for your skin. mascara can compliment your eyes and all in all make you're appearance very appealing. you can practice eyeliner and it as well can compliment your eyes and give you a flawless look but if you're particularly not the best at it you can stick to mascara.

I use warm colors such as browns creams and light pinks. And try to use moisturizing lipsticks, with natural colors. One I love is the Maybelline baby lips peach kind. Also if you finish your foundation routine with skin colored powder it helps set all the make up I use Cover girls age rewinding( I am only 16 but it work great).

Drink water,water,water and more water!!!!!!!! Wash EVERY day and before bed time with Dove soap, and a clean white wash cloth (change EVERYDAY) and pat gently dry.I have done this method for many years and I still get "what do you use on your face, it is so smooth and clear........ this is not an overnight process, you have to stay with it, just like eating and sleeping. Good luck, and stick with it!!!!!

don't wear makeup, you don't need it. but if u insist on wearing it then just wear some mascara and a sheer lip gloss. a little bit of blush and some neutral color eye shadow is good too! don''t use the red lipstick and black and lime green eye shadow... definitely not natural!

1- Put a primer over your face.
2- apply a liquid foundation ( don't go over board).
3- Apply a thin layer of powder( so the liquid foundation isn't too glossy)
4- blend your make up from your chin so there's no make up line.
4- mascara, lip gloss, faint eye shadow, eye liner is all optional :)

All learning requires practice—just plain old everyday repetition. Try it out at home and get used to the minor changes, then remove it at bedtime. There is a lip product by Tangee from the Old Vermont Country Store, that intensifies the natural color of your lips You can get a similar effect with what is now called "mood" lipsticks. If you want to try mascara, use brown. I think that the most important beauty secret is professionally shaped eyebrows. Never tweeze hairs from the top of the brow and don't overdo it. Eyebrows are the frame for your entire face. It must be done in the right way for your unique features. With practice, you'll be a pro in no time. Of course you don't NEED makeup, I'm sure you are pretty just as you are. But I still love the girly feel of playing with some gloss, brown mascara on the outer corner of the lashes and brushed groomed eyebrows can look natural, it's just a matter of you becoming comfortable with it. Maybe a very sheer powder to cut down on shine for photos.

Instead of wearing black eyeliner, choose a light brown eyeliner. Yes, they exist, and it emphasises your eyelashes without looking fake. Lightly applied mascara on the upper lashes, not lower, and make sure your mascara isn't old. After a while mascara becomes too old, and clumps the lashes, which of course makes it more noticeable that you're wearing it, and it doesn't look as nice.

Use any make-up you wear in accompaniment to your looks, highlighting your natural beauty. Don't try to change your looks with make up, it always comes off as fake. At your age I doubt you need much concealer, blush, foundation, etc. If you have any spots fixing them up with concealer and a light once over with foundation is fine, but no more than that.

Don't over do it. Less is more.

I always try for a natural look, and all I wear is mascara, and occasionally concealer/foundation on off days.

Good luck, and I'm sure you'll look great :) It's a good sign that you want a natural look, and I'm sure you'll pull it off fabulously.

honestly it just depends on you! when I like to go natural I personally like to use bare minerals just make sure to smooth over your face with a clean brush after applying your powder so it doesn't look to false! something I like to do is use their volumizing mascara and then use the lengthening one. also a thin layer of eyeliner always looks nice and when you put on your blush don't over apply. you could put an opec nude eye shadow on your eyelids. as for lips a shade with just a little color and some clear gloss is the way to go. hope this was helpful! good luck
