Just like fashion, playing with makeup is loads of fun and is a great form of self-expression, too! But if you don't want to use up a whole bottle of makeup remover just to wipe off a day's look, then you know that you can never go wrong with a natural look. We have shown you the basic beauty tips you need for a flawless base and a strong eye game. Now, we're showing you how you can score a natural-looking flush and pout with total ease.


Before anything else, exfoliate your lips to keep your pout smooth! But make sure to blot your lips with a tissue before swiping your lippie on.

Try: Natural Lip Scrub P175, Human Nature

Choosing your lip liner? Make sure to choose one in a natural hue for easier and natural-looking application. But also take note to match your lip liner with your lippie, unless you're going for an obvious, not exactly flattering two-toned look.

Try: Universal Lip Liner P436, Sephora Collection


With all the lip color that's available, choosing a lipstick color for the day can be tough. To make sure that your lippie is always flattering, find out what kind of undertones you have so you can match it with whichever shade of red, pink, orange, or nude you want without worrying if your lippie would look great with your skin tone.

Contrary to popular belief, applying your blush is simple. Just smile and find the apples of your cheeks. From there, apply the blush and blend towards the hairline. Be sure to pick shades that match your natural flush to make it look seamless as possible.

At the end of the day, just remember that makeup should be fun! So go ahead and play around, but have a bottle of makeup remover ready because you’ll probably stumble a little bit while experimenting.

The Rebecca Bloomwood of Manila. I spend half of my time obsessing about the latest fashion craze, and the other half overthinking and over-analyzing just about anything under the sun. When I’m not busy as a bee playing with fifty shades of pink lippies, you can probably catch me swiping my plastic for yet another pair of shiny, pointed gold flats.
