    1. When thinking about your base choose a dewy or light reflecting foundation. Tinted moisturizer is going to be the best option that allows your natural coloring to shine through.
    1. Apply warm berry or peach blusher to the apples of the cheek to create a soft hint of color. Creams give the illusion of moisturized and dewy skin. Gel blush offers the sheerest form of color and is great for giving a natural looking glow to bare skin, it is also a great look when applied to just moisturized or nude skin and won’t settle into any fine lines or creases.
    1. When thinking about textures for this type of makeup you need to stay away from flat opaque’s. The best textures to use are transparent, glossy, sheer and slightly iridescent, that will help to highlight the skin and give it lift.
    1. Bronzing powder can be substituted for foundation for that sun blushed look, just be sure to use it only on areas of the face that the sun would naturally hit, otherwise you will end up looking to orange, the most natural looking bronzers are those with brown undertones. Most bronzers come in different shades from light, medium and dark shades. Pick the one that is most similar to how you usually tan, a great natural looking bronzer will bend in easily and warm the face giving the appearance of a subtle sun tan.
    1. Soft brown or grey eyeliner will help to accentuate the eye without making it look to overdone. Powder also works well that can be blended in with your eye shadow. A great eye makeup tip is to use dark peach eyeliner around the rim of the eye, which will give the eye the illusion of definition without looking as though you have applied eyeliner.
    1. Instead of applying mascara, fake it by adding a few individual eyelash styles to the outer corner of your eyes, helping to extend your lash line and create that wide eyed doe effect.
    1. To give definition to your face especially when your eyes are very natural, use eyelash styles curlers that will help to emphasize your eyelashes and finish by sealing with a gel mascara, that will help to hold the curl in place. If you want to apply mascara do so only on the top lashes and avoid doing so on the bottom, which will draw the eye down.
    1. If you plan on wearing eye shadow on top of your tan, choose shades that add light to your face and help prevent it from looking to flat.
    1. Your eye shadow base wants to be as natural as possible and should be applied in three stages. The first stage is simply a wash of color that is as near to your own skin tone as possible, apply all over the lid, from the eyelash styles line to the eyebrow. Then brush a medium shade of shadow across the entire lid, from the eyelash styles to just above the crease line and blend. Finally apply the darkest shade along the eyelash styles line as close to the eyelash styles as possible, placing added emphasis on the outer corners.
  1. Use lipstick color sparingly ensuring the textures are sheer and glossy. A key tool here is going to be your lip liner, which should be nude or at least perfectly match your lip color. Finish with a sweep of natural lip-gloss for sexy bee stung lips.

Simplicity is everything with the natural barely there look. Transparent, pale and pastel colors are easy to apply and these shades work for everyone, helping to liven up the skin whilst creating that wonderful sun kissed effect that is positively glowing from inside. Careful blending is essential, the aim is to give the complexion a healthy glow by using foundation and blusher that subtly enhances your natural skin tone, rather than disguising it.
