Homegrown cosmetics brand Ever Bilena shares these five tips to look naturally beautiful. 

Cleanse and moisturize

To truly achieve the all-natural makeup look, forego the foundation. Instead, prep the skin by cleansing it with your preferred facial wash, then exfoliate to brighten and smoothen your complexion. Finish off with a moisturizer and sunscreen to keep the face protected and fully hydrated. 


The trick to a healthy and fresh complexion is spot-concealing any blemishes and redness using your concealer and concealer brush. However, for dark circles, use your ring finger to pat on the concealer as it has the lightest pressure.  

Groom the brows and lashes

Brows frame the face thus it is important they are well groomed, this way, you only need to brush up the brow hair using a spoolie or brow mascara and you’re good to go. Add definition to the lashes with a few swipes of mascara.

Choose shades close to skin color

For bright, wide-awake eyes, apply eyeshadow that’s close to your skin tone. Your safest bet is light brown. Gently apply shadow from the lash line and blend upwards, fading as it gets closer to your brow.

For cheeks, cream blush easily gives the natural-looking glow. With a synthetic brush or your fingers, apply blush on the apples of the cheeks and blend upward toward hairline. This makeup trick instantly makes you look youthful.

Put on nude lipstick

The last step to complete the barely-there makeup look is a good nude lipstick. Ever Bilena offers a new line of matte nude lipsticks where each stick is infused with antioxidants and moisturizer so the lips feel soft, smooth, and supple despite the matte formula. Retailing at P165 each, it comes in six colors namely Dolce, Amore, Fia, Bellissima, Caramello, and Baci. Each shade is perfect for different skin tones.
