Soft-focus makeup is gaining fame in the beauty industry due to its resemblance to the social media filters. Besides, the best part thing about this hazy and blurred beauty effect is that it is easier to create than you think. The soft-focus is rejuvenated with berry tones, neutral color palettes, and subtle highlights. As such, below we have highlighted some of the ways that you can achieve the soft-focus makeup look.
Start with Blemish Balm Cream
For the soft makeup look, go for blemish/beauty balm cream rather than the foundation. The blemish balm cream is a multipurpose combination of products such as moisturizer, primer, sun-protective cream, foundation, skin treatment, and concealer. Indeed, it is an all-in-one cream that offers protection, coverage, and hydration. Moreover, it smooths the skin texture, evens complexion, hydrates the skin and hides blemishes.
Add under Eye Concealer
The dark circles and under-eye bags should not appear on your soft makeup look. Therefore, you should add a brightening concealer under your eyes then blend it out using your finger pad. The brightening concealer will correct the appearance of your under-eye area while giving your skin tone a touch of radiance.
Give Cheeks a Flush
Additionally, you can add some colored blush onto the apples of your cheeks to give them the natural-looking color.
Use a Lustrous Highlighter.
A glossy highlighter will provide you with the kind of illumination that you want for your soft-focus makeup look. As such, you should apply your glossy highlighter on the bridge and tip of your nose, onto the eyelids and above your cheekbones. However, do not choose highlighters, creams and powders that will add shimmer on your skin.
Smudge out Eyeliner
Although achieving the perfect eyeliner may be a challenge for people with shaky hands, you do not have to worry about a perfect eyeliner when you are creating a soft-focus makeup look. In this case, you can create a smudged eyeliner and it will still blend well with your makeup look. In fact, all you need is a smooth eyeliner.
Mascara is a must for a soft-focus makeup look. Just take your favorite volumizing and lash lengthening mascara formula and sweep it from the roots of your lashes to the tip.
Blur Lip Lines
Blurred lips blend perfectly with smudged eyeliners to deliver a beautiful soft-focus makeup look. To get the blurred lips, coat your lips with your satin lipstick then use a lip brush and mess up the edges of your lipstick for a well done feathered look.
Use Setting Spray
Conceal your look all day long by spritzing some makeup setting spray.
