Here is a routine for a natural glam makeup look that looks incredible and suits everyone. This look is perfect for prom, weddings or just night’s out. It's super natural but on the glam side.

There always comes a day where we are going out and we have no clue what makeup look to do. I am here to help you! Here is a step by step of a beautiful makeup look so you can achieve it all by yourself, at home.


First we are starting with the eyes! That way if anything goes wrong all we have to take off is just the eyes or if there is any fallout we can just wipe the under eye area and we are ready to go!

First, prep the eyes with eye primer - PLouise Base in 3 - and apply it all over the eyelid. After that set it with natural eyeshadow to suit the skin colour. I took a buff brush - Morphe x Jaclyn Hill JH31- and a light brown shade to define the crease.

Next I took a small brush - Morphe x Jaclyn Hill JH39 - and - Natasha Denona eyeshadow in Harlow - and apply it in the eye corner. After that I took the - JH31 - and blended it a little bit more. Then I have taken the - JH39 - and - Natasha Denona eyeshadow in Seed - and applied a little bit more in the corners.

To define the brows, take a dark brown and grey shadow to fill the eyebrow gaps with a small eyeliner brush. I have then set the eyebrows with - Benefit 24-Hr Brow Setter. I have then applied natural looking lashes and mascara on top and bottom lashes.


To prep the skin use a cotton pad and - Bioderma Sensibio H2o Micellar Water - to take off any fallout that has appeared under the eyes. To moisturise I have used - Charlotte Tilbury Magic Cream - and applied it all over the face and a little bit of eye cream to make sure that the skin is prepped. 

With - Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector Liquid Highlighter in Moonstone - I have added a little bit of glow on her cheeks, lip and bridge of the nose. 

For the foundation, I have mixed two shades of - Nars Sheer Glow Foundation - to match the skin colour perfectly. Tip is to use a wet sponge to buff it into the skin. Next, Use a small brush to apply just a little bit of concealer in areas where it is needed. I usually apply the concealer only where I can see some darkness or redness. 

To set I have used - Laura Mercier translucent powder - using a - JH07. When it comes to powder then less is more! You don't need to bake the face. I personally wouldn't recommend it as the skin can get really dry and look unhealthy/unnatural.

To define cheekbones I have used - KVD Shade + Light Contour in shadowplay. I have also used blush palette -Morphe W8 in unapologetic. Apply the blush above the cheekbones and on the temples to give a lifted effect. 

With - Dior Backstage Glow Face Palette - I have added glow on the cheeks and lip. I have also applied a little bit of the corner of her eyes and under her eyebrow to make the features pop.


To give an effect of bigger lips, apply a dark lipliner and lighter lipstick to the lips. I have used  - Golden Rose lipliner in 518 - and - MAC lipstick in Kinda Sexy.

And now we are done with this very natural and easy glam makeup look! You can change the darkness or lightness of the eyeshadows and lip products to make sure it matches your skin colour and you can add a little bit of lip gloss to the lips and to finish set it with Charlotte Tilbury Airbrush Flawless Setting Spray.
