Beauty experts agree: The overdone look is out, and there’s no better time than now to take advantage of your own natural beauty. These foolproof tips will help you achieve a fresher, more youthful appearance that naturally enhances your best assets. Looking and feeling like yourself at your most confident—now that’s a trend that’s timeless.
Let Your Skin Show Through
Heavy foundation not only masks your natural radiance, but also ages you. Instead of caking on products, try using a tinted moisturizer or BB cream and simply dot concealer over any troublesome spots. Formulated with hydrating and nourishing ingredients, both are healthy for your skin and will give you a lighter, more organic look that still provides coverage.
Opt for an Injectable That Gives You a Natural-Looking Result
One feature that no one wants to highlight? Frown lines between the eyebrows. Luckily, you can temporarily improve the look of moderate or severe frown lines between the eyebrows (glabellar lines) with Dysport, a prescription injectable treatment recommended for adults less than 65 years of age.* In just one 10–20 minute treatment, Dysport can help improve the look of your frown lines without changing the look of your whole face. In other words, natural—not frozen.

Warm Up Your Blush
A warm-colored blush usually gives off a more natural result than one with a cooler tone. A good rule of thumb is to go with a shade that best resembles your natural color when you’re flushed—so steer away from anything too orange, brown or glittery. For the easiest application, use a fluffy brush to place your blush onto the apples of your cheeks, and then blend outward along your cheekbones. Don’t let the blush go lower than your nose to avoid the color dragging your face down.
Use Natural Shades to Sharpen Your Brows and Eyes
Playing up your brows by filling them in and keeping them neat makes a huge difference in waking up your face. But to keep the look natural, make sure to choose a color that matches your natural brows and blend well. For your eyes, use a shadow that is slightly darker than your skin tone and line close to your lashes to emphasize your natural eye shape and really make them pop without looking like you’re wearing a ton of makeup.
Work Your Beauty From the Inside Out
Achieving a more naturally beautiful look does not only depend on what you do on the surface, but also on what you put in your body. A balanced diet with protein, iron and vitamins are key to shinier, fuller hair and healthy nails.
