Add A Little Natural Splendour To Your Style

When you think about your style and your fashion, you might be inclined to dress up, looking anything but natural. Perhaps you love painting your face with nearly an inch of makeup and becoming a completely new person when you walk out the front door. However, if you do this, you might be missing out on the beauty of a more natural look. What are we talking about here? Well, let’s examine some of the key ways you could choose a more natural style and look all the more stunning because of it.

Colors In Hair

You might love coloring and dying your hair. Perhaps you like to get highlights, or maybe you love completely altering your style with a brand new redye. Either option could be a great idea, but they certainly won’t look natural. For instance, you might choose to dye your hair purple. No matter how hard you try, that’s never going to blend in naturally with the rest of your style.

However, there are ways to style and color your hair that are a little more subtle. First of all, you should consider what you’re trying to achieve with this style choice. You probably want your hair to shine and to be a little more eye-catching. Well, you can do that with colors that look completely natural. A brilliant style choice that matches this idea would be balayage. Originating from France, this style choice is perfect because the highlights blend in beautifully with the rest of the hair. If people didn’t know any better, they could presume they were natural highlights, or you had caught the best rays from the sun.

Less Is More

We’re of course talking about makeup. If you want to aim for a natural style, it stands to reason that you can not coat your face in makeup. What you can do instead is use makeup that looks quite natural. An example of this could be the spray makeup that you can buy online. Since it is very subtle, it can make it look as though you’re not wearing any at all. However, it will still cover and conceal all the imperfections on your face. While makeup kits like this are expensive, they can be worth it if your aim is to get the natural look.

You might also want to think about the shades of color that you use in your makeup. Lighter colors and pastel shades are going to be more effective at highlighting your natural beauty. If you are using techniques such as contouring, make sure you blend effectively. There are some great videos online that can show you how to blend so that it looks like you have the perfect, high cheekbones.

Tricks Of The Trade

There are a few natural beauty tricks you can try as well. For instance, it is possible to make your hair shinier without highlights if you use the tea bag trick. The tea bag trick is just a matter of dipping your hair in warm water with, shockingly enough, tea bags. Once you have done this, you should find, after it’s dry, your hair is noticeably shinier and has a beautiful gloss.

You might also want to think about using a natural beauty technique to improve your smile. To get a brilliant bright smile, you need super white teeth, but that doesn’t mean you have to look at teeth whitening options. Instead, there’s a natural tip that you can try. All you need is a little lemon juice and baking soda. Rub it on your teeth, and a few minutes later you can take it off. In about two weeks, they’ll look bright and beautiful.

Natural Fashion

Lastly, let’s think about fashion because fashion does play into achieving the natural look. Sometimes, you see this in fashion magazines with ‘no makeup’ shoots. They don’t just change that style choice, the celeb in question often chooses a completely different wardrobe. They tend to choose clothes that are more carefree and laid back. Loose fitting t-shirts, cream colors, and plain outfits are some of the typical options.

The brilliance of this is that it matches a minimalistic style which always looks effortless and chic.

Using this advice, you can achieve the natural style yourself and adopt a completely carefree look. There’s a lot of freedom that comes with this choice. You won’t have to worry about spending hours getting ready in the morning or being judged when you’re seen in a more typical state. You might even gain more confidence in how you appear without all the glamorous choices.
