Hey, guys! Today, I will show you how to achieve this gorgeous and glowy makeup look.

With this look, we’ll use a baked foundation for a very natural appearance to the skin, a serum blush for that added natural glow, and a peachy monochromatic and half-lash eye look for a flirty finish.

Let’s get into it!

Tools and materials:

  • Concealer
  • Makeup brushes
  • Baked foundation
  • Serum blush
  • Bronzer
  • Setting powder
  • Eyeliner
  • Mascara
  • Lashes
  • Tweezers
  • Lip gloss
Applying concealer

1. Apply concealer

I already have a beauty balm on my skin for a tiny amount of coverage, and I’m going over it with concealer.

I’m using the concealer to brighten around my eyes and cover the redness around my nose.

Applying concealer

Press that into the skin using the belly of a big blending brush.

Using a smaller brush takes a bit more work and you can get a streaky finish.

2. Cover any redness with the excess concealer

Press what’s left on the bristles of your blending brush around your face where you tend to get a bit of redness.

Applying foundation

3. Apply foundation

I’m going to be mixing two different baked foundations to get my perfect shade.

Both foundations are light to medium coverage, so you can build them up.

I recommend a matte finish foundation if you’re more oily.

If you have rosacea or your skin is a bit warm and red in areas, go for a color-correcting foundation.

Applying serum blush to lips

4. Apply a serum blush to your lips

Since I’m going for a natural finish, I’m using a serum blush on multiple parts of my face.

First, I’m popping it onto my lips for a soft peachy finish. 

Applying serum blush to eyes

5. Apply a serum blush to your eyes

Swipe that same serum blush over your eyes. 

Applying bronzer

6. Apply bronzer

Apply bronzer around the circumference of your face, as well as anywhere the sun will naturally hit. 

Applying bronzer

I took it underneath my cheekbones to softly sculpt the area.

Applying setting powder to eyelids

7. Apply setting powder to the eyelids

Apply a setting powder over your eyes to make sure the serum on the eyelids doesn’t go anywhere.

Applying eyeliner

8. Apply eyeliner from the outer corner to the inner corner

Apply dark brown eyeliner to the outer corner of your eye.

I like my eyeliner to be thicker as it gets to the outer corner, and thinner as it gets toward the center.

Smudging eyeliner

Use your finger to soften the inner corner.

9. Add a small wing

You can leave it like this, but I like to pull the outer corner out slightly to elongate the shape of the eye.

The eyeliner will accentuate the half-lashes as well.

10. Line your lower lash line

Take the same eyeliner pencil halfway across your lower lash line and use your finger to smudge it out.

You can also take it on the outer half of your waterline as well.

Applying bronzer to eye socket

11. Bronze your eye socket

Apply the same bronzer you applied earlier throughout your eye sockets now to add a bit more warmth.

Applying mascara

12. Apply mascara to your upper lashes

The mascara I’m using is a tubing mascara.

Adding concealer

13. Add concealer around the nose and eyes

Add more concealer around the nose and underneath the eyes for a bit of extra coverage and a brightening effect. It blends beautifully over the baked foundation.

A little concealer on the outer corner of the eyes gives your eyes the illusion of being slightly more lifted. Blend it in.

Adding setting powder

14. Set

Set the center of your face with a setting powder. 

Adding blush

15. Apply blush

Go back in with the serum blush and apply a small amount to your cheeks.

This is going to tie into the eyes and the lips, giving us that monochromatic finish.

This serum blush gives a beautiful natural glow that’s a bit glossy, so you don’t need a highlighter.

Applying lashes

16. Apply lashes

For the lashes, I’m applying a half-lash to the outer half of my eyes. Use tweezers to tuck in both edges so neither end is sticking up.

Use your fingers to press that against the skin so it lays on your natural lash, but butts up against the skin.

It’ll seal perfectly into place, and you won’t have a gap. 

Applying lashes

Combing through them also helps seal them to your natural lashes.

Applying mascara

17. Apply mascara to your lower lashes

Finish off the lash look by applying mascara to your lower lashes.

Applying lip gloss

18. Apply lip gloss

Apply a lightweight and hydrating lip gloss.
