A Natural Make-Up Routine for Skincare Lovers

We love taking care of our skin with amazing products and personalized routines. So why cover up all this hard work with heavy makeup? Here is a M&H approved makeup routine to enhance – not cover up – your features and celebrate your unique, natural beauty.

After years and years of being passionate about ingredients, formulas and textures, you should have figured out a skincare routine that suits you and reveals your best skin ever.
And after being part of the Muse & Heroine Self-Love Club for a while now, you should have learned to love and celebrate the unique, natural beauty of your skin. So, if you’re anything like us, you’ll find the idea of caking up and piling on lots of make-up on a daily basis quite daunting. Don’t get me wrong – there’s nothing wrong about going all out and experimenting with makeup: it’s fun, empowering and most of all... it’s washable. But for an everyday look, we like to go natural and let the beauty of our skin truly shine. Here’s our idea of a Natural Make-Up routine for Skincare Lovers.
As always, start on a prepped canvas: apply your daytime skincare routine as you normally would. If your skin is naturally oily and tends to go shiny during the day, skip oils – however, if your skin is very dry, leave them in. they’ll help your foundation to go on smoother. If you’re going out during the day, make sure to apply a good, broad-spectrum SPF like the Kypris Pot of Shade Heliotropic and your canvas is sorted.
Start your natural make-up routine by applying a mineral foundation that suits your skin colour: depending on how much coverage you like, you can apply a small amount or layer it. Clove + Hallow Pressed Mineral Foundation is cruelty-free and vegan and made from a base of talc-free powders and minerals plus a natural antioxidant complex to cover imperfections with a satin finish that looks like real, radiant skin. Pressed into an eco-chic refillable, you will get all the benefits of mineral makeup without the mess of a loose powder. 
After you’ve applied foundation, it’s time to put some colour back into your skin and add dimension. For a sun-kissed glow, use Clove + Hallow Bronzing Powder: a lightweight and blendable bronzer made with natural minerals for adding gorgeous depth and warmth to the skin - this is 100% cruelty-free and vegan as well. Apply it in circular motions with a large powder brush focusing on the cheekbones, on the sides of the forehead and on the tip of the nose. A make-up artist tip? Use an eyeshadow brush or your fingertips to blend a small quantity of bronzer on the lids.
Finish off the look with some colour on the lips. Depending on the season, your mood or the time of the day, you can choose from a creamy nude like Clove + Hallow Lip Crème in Desert Rose, a deep burgundy (perfect for autumn!) like Clove + Hallow Lip Velvet in Uptown or my personal favourite, a bold, fiery red like this one By Clove + Hallow called Fiesta. There's nothing more chic than a minimal base paired with a bold, red lip. To freshen up and set your makeup, spritz a small amount of a light mist like the Susanne Kaufmann Rose Water Mist, and you’re good to go conquer your day!
