Special Occasion Make Up

If you are looking for a nice look for a special day like a birthday, Christmas or party, then read on for our tips. This feature focuses on achieving a gorgeous subtle make-up look, for glowing natural looking radiance.

The first part to achieving a good make-up look is to prep the face; so it is clean, smooth and plumped up. Nakin’s products use lots of amazing plant extracts like hyaluronic acid, and so are great for achieving a hydrated plump look and gorgeous smooth base to apply make-up to. Use our natural Advanced Cleansing Milk and follow cleansing our natural Purifying Face Toner. After toning apply good face prep creams to prime the skin before applying the base products. Our natural eye creamnatural face serum, natural face oilNatural Matt Formula Face Cream for oily, normal and combination skin, or Natural Active Dew Face Cream  for dry, normal and combination skin are all perfect for this. Pat the face products in or massage them upwards and outwards, and do not forget the neck area. Then apply our natural lip balm to hydrate and nourish lips. Gorgeous face products will give skin a glowing Instagram ready radiance before applying any make-up.

Now your complexion is all smooth and ready for makeup, start by applying foundation and buff it all over the face with a good brush. Then apply concealer to under the eye area and any problem patches, pat this in like an eye cream using the ring finger. Then set the products with a super light dusting of powder. Just enough to keep the make-up in place, but not enough to actually show on skin. Next is to apply a brow product with a pencil and spoolie. This will lift the face and create definition. It is very youth boosting as brows are the pillars of the face. Follow with an eye pencil on the upper lids to define the eyes. Black can be very harsh, so opt for a brown or grey eye liner if you prefer a subtle look. Then apply mascara to the upper and lower lids. If it is a special occasion, then it is nice to use a sparkly eye product on the eye lids, to gift them a lift.

Next is bronzer to warm up the face. Apply it to the face across the nose, cheekbones, and temples plus down the sides of the nose and underneath the tip of the nose and back up, like a U-turn shape for an easy bit of nose contouring. Then apply highlighter to the inner corner of the eyes to just open them up, as well as the outer cheekbones, outer upper eyes and cupids bow. Finish with a hydrating glossy lip product.
