A fresh natural makeup look! Quick and easy to achieve with a barely-there but beautiful finish for every day. 

 

A NATURAL BASE

 

Mineral powder foundation is perfect for creating the base for a natural makeup look.

It buffs on to the skin beautifully and doesn’t take a lot of product to deliver a luminous glow with natural coverage. 

Step 1: Swirl your kabuki brush into the product pot and tap off any excess.

Step 2: Apply the powder in a swirling motion all over your face then buff to work it into the skin.

The end result is skin that appears more even and luminous without a heavy look. If you’d like a little more coverage, apply a mineral BB cream before the mineral foundation. This will help to smooth any imperfections while still achieving a natural makeup look.  

 

Create the look with esmi Skin Minerals Loose Mineral Foundation and esmi Skin Minerals Mineral BB Cream. 

 

A NATURAL BROW

 

Polishing your natural brows, but not going overboard, is about keeping your look simple and balanced. 

Step 1: Brush your clean, makeup free brow hairs through with a spoolie in an upward motion.

Step 2: Take a brow pencil and, following the direction of hair growth, fill in your brows with short, hair like strokes starting from the inner brow working outwards. Drawing individual lines gives a more natural look than shading. 

Step 3: Grab your spoolie and run it through the brows again to blend any harsh lines.

Step 4: Add powder. Lightly dip your brush into the eyebrow powder. Move the brush upward using light, feather-like strokes. 

Adding powder after pencil helps add the illusion of volume while keeping brows natural looking. Plus, it sets the pencil.

Step 5: Finish the look by swiping on clear brow gel for long-lasting hold.

 

Create the look with Brow Duo Powder, Brow Magic or Brow Love Soft Brow Pencil, and Zebra Clear Brow Gel.

 

A NATURAL CHEEK

 

Blushes in pinks and warm peach hues will help create an oh-so-subtle flush that livens up your skin in a natural way. Or, you could opt for a bronzer for cheeks for natural, sunkissed luminosity.

Step 1: Load your brush with your chosen blush or bronzer and tap off any excess.

Step 2: Smile to see the natural apples of your cheeks.

Step 3: Gently swirl the blush across your cheeks in a circular motion starting at the apple of your cheek and working your way out along your cheek bone.

Step 4: Build until you’re happy with the intensity 

The type of brush you use to apply blush really is the secret to pulling off a natural makeup look. You want to opt for a large, fluffy brush. The fluffier the brush, the less product it will pick up - ideal for a gentle wash of colour.

 

Create the look with Unicorn Candy Blush or Unicorn Chocolate Bronzer

 

A NATURAL EYE

 

A natural makeup look for your eyes just calls for a palette of 3 shades in neutral / natural hues, a pencil eyeliner, and mascara. 

Step 1: Take your base colour and work it all over the lid. Don’t get too heavy with the application, you want a gentle wash of colour for the most natural eye makeup. 

Step 2: Now select a deeper colour and apply the product along the bottom lash line, following the shape of the lashes. 

Step 3: With the same shade as step 2, press the colour into your upper lash line at the outer corner of the eye. Work your way so the colour intensity tapers off as you move toward the middle of the eye. Keep the colour close to the lash line, don’t take it up too high.

Step 4: Blend out any harsh lines with a fluffy eyeshadow brush.

Step 5: Take your eyeliner of choice, a pencil works best for a natural look, and line the upper lash line.

Step 6: With the darkest shade of your colour trio, buff and blend it over the eyeliner, concentrating pigment in the outer corner. This will add depth to the look. 

Step 7: Finish with a few coats of mascara to open up your eyes and polish the look! 

 

We love White Knight Tubular Mascara 

 

A NATURAL LIP

 

We’re aiming for a natural looking lip that is still nicely polished. Choose a pink/neutral lip colour one or two shades darker than your natural lip colour. 

Step 1: Prep the lips with a gentle exfoliation using a toothbrush with soft bristles. 

Step 2: Using a dabbing motion, press the colour into your lips. You don’t need to be too precise with the lip line or use a lip liner for a natural makeup look. 

Step 3: You can take your natural pout a little further by adding a dab of highlighter just to the centre of your lips to create the illusion of fullness. Try it with Brow Pop, our multipurpose creamy highlighter in a soft peachy hue. 

 

Create natural looks with Lip Magic Balm. It magically changes colour to create your perfect shade of pink!

Blush - The Ultimate Multitasking Beauty Essential

Blush the ultimate multitasking beauty essential

Blush - The Ultimate Multitasking Beauty Essential

READ MORE

Is the ultimate beauty multitasker hiding in plain sight in your makeup stash? Toss out the rulebook - here’s how to use blush for more than your cheeks. 

 

How To Use Blush On Your Eyes

Repurpose your fav cheek colour as eyeshadow. 

First, prep your eye area as usual - either with foundation or BB cream

Next, grab an eyeshadow brush and gently dab it into the blush product and tap off any excess. 

Apply as you would a regular eyeshadow blending across your lid and upwards -  the higher up you take it, the more dramatic it will look.

Pro tip: How to use blush on your eyes for a super pigmented look? Wetting the brush head with a makeup setting spray, rather than leaving it dry, will give you a more intense colour payoff. 

If you’re using a pinkish shade, don’t take it all the way to your lash line - or use eyeliner between the shade and your lashes. Eyes can take on a bit of a strange look if pink is all up there in your lash line. 

Your bronzer can make a multi-tasking cameo here too. Depending on the hue of the blush you’re using, applying a little bronzer to the crease of the eye will add depth and warmth. 

Cream blushes work just as well as cream eyeshadows too, the creamy texture adds an extra hint of dewy radiance. 

Not all shades of blush will be right for your eyes. Soft shimmery peaches, terracotta, and natural plum hues work beautifully. Experiment with different shades and colour intensity to discover which ones really make your eyes stand out.

 

How To Use Blush On Your Lips

With the help of a little clear lip gloss or balm your powder blush transforms into a gorgeous lip tint that perfectly complements your cheeks.

Start by prepping your lips with a little light exfoliation (a clean, soft toothbrush works a treat) and then apply a clear balm or gloss to your lips. 

Tap a clean finger into your powder blush and gently press into your lips over the top of the balm.

Using a really shimmery champagne-hued blush? Dab the powder on the centre of your lips so the colour is most concentrated there. Then, blend a little outwards. 

This will draw attention to the centre of your lips to really plump the appearance of your pout. 

Those shimmery champagne or peachy hues can also highlight your Cupid's bow.  Just dab along your Cupid’s bow - either with your finger or a soft highlighter brush.  

Cream blush is easily interchangeable between lips and cheeks. Apply it as a subtle stain for just a hint of colour or build up to a full base colour and finish with clear gloss over the top.

Lip Makeup. Easy Tips For A Fuller Pout

READ MORE

You don’t have to go the filler path to get yourself a pillowy Kylie Jenner pout. Our lip makeup tips and a little prep work can deliver a subtly accentuated mouth or your most ambitious pout ever! 

 

Prep your lips

 

Before we get to the lip makeup tips, you need to get your lip prep on. 

 

Exfoliate

It’s not just your skin that benefits from a fresh exfoliation sesh. 

Gently buffing your lips before adding lip makeup removes any dry skin clinging to your lips (never a good look) and also boosts blood circulation. 

Coconut sugar makes a great exfoliant. Massage a tiny amount of coconut sugar in circular motions onto damp lips with your fingertips or a toothbrush with soft bristles. 

Behold, the smoothest base ever for your lip makeup.

 

Hydrate and moisturise 

Sipping H20 on the regular is a natural way to nourish your lips for your best pout ever. 

Fine lines begin to appear around your mouth when you’re dehydrated - this can make your lips look a little on the shrivelled side.

Along with chugging your daily water quota, keep your lips supple with a moisturising balm like our Lip Magic Balm.

 

 

Lip makeup tips for a fuller pout

 

Start with concealer

This tip will change your lip game forever. 

For the perfect lip makeup application, start by blotting the lip with concealer or foundation. 

This will blur the line between your lips and your skin meaning you can slightly over line your lip shape easily - more on overlining in a moment. 

We love that it acts as a primer too, filling in any lines and giving your lip makeup serious staying power.  

By blotting out your natural lip colour, this technique also helps the lipstick stay true to its colour - the red and pink tones of your lips can alter how the colour appears. 

 

Overlining your lips….the right way

Overlining is the classic fake-a-pouty-lip makeup tip.

Here’s how you do it:

Choose a lip liner that matches or is just a shade darker than your natural lip colour. 

First, line the lip along your natural lip line. This will help in the next step to let you move little by little when you overline.

Now, use the liner to draw slightly (and we mean slightly) outside your natural lip line then fill the rest of the lip in. This will give the illusion of larger lips and provide a base for the next lip product you apply.

Pro tip - Focus your over lining around the Cupid’s bow. The closer you get to the corners of your mouth, the more you should follow your natural lip line. You don’t want it to look really obvious you’ve drawn your lips on!

 

The two-tone trick

This lip makeup trick is the EASIEST way to add dimension to your pout - and dimension is the secret to making it pop!

First, apply a single shade across your entire mouth. 

Next, take a shade lighter than the base colour and add a little of the lighter colour just to the centre of your lips to create the illusion of fullness. 

This tip is seriously foolproof. We recommend trying it with Brow Pop as the lighter shade - it’s a multipurpose creamy highlighter in a soft peachy hue ideal for perfect for lips and brows. 

 

Gloss up 

By dabbing just a little gloss right in the centre of your bottom and top lip, you instantly up your pout game. 

 

Highlight your cupid’s bow

You can also dab just a touch of highlighter along your Cupid’s bow - either with your finger or a soft highlighter brush. 

We love a champagne-toned highlighter for this lip makeup trick. Try our Unicorn Champagne Highlighter for an irresistible burst of radiance. 

 

Try a plumping balm

Lip plumping balms are formulated with ingredients like cinnamon or menthol which encourages a plumping action. When applied, these ingredients stimulate blood to rush to the surface of your lips. The result? A subtle and temporary plumping of the lips.

 

Double down on the concealer

How can you really make your lip makeup pop? 

By lining the outside of your mouth - after you’ve applied lipstick - with concealer and a lip brush. This simple tip brings amazing sharpness and vibrancy to your lip colour.

 

Contour underneath your bottom lip

Grab a small fluffy makeup brush for contouring and dip it in a little bronzer and very lightly brush it back and forth below the bottom lip. Contouring below the lip helps to bring it ‘forward’ and creates the illusion of fullness. 

Your puffiest, poutiest lips ever await.

5 Everyday Makeup Essentials

READ MORE

We get back to basics with this everyday makeup line up. For a streamlined kit with *everything* you need for a gorgeous, fuss-free look, these are the ultimate 5 must-have products.

 

Mascara

 

Mascara is the #1 pick on our can’t-live-without list. 

You look bright eyed and fresh faced instantly with this everyday makeup essential. 

Whether you want a touch of colour or serious volume and inky dark lashes (we pick the latter!) mascara is the ultimate everyday eye definer.

If you were to have just one colour mascara in your kit, we say make it black. 

The brush matters too. Big brushes add volume, and those with a curve help lift and fan out your lashes. 

Waterproof mascara is your best pick for a look that stays put but choose a tubular mascara - water-resistant ‘tubes’ close around each individual lash.

These tubes are superior to traditional waterproof mascara as they slide off easily when you cleanse your face. No tugging or pulling at the delicate skin around your eye area or using harsh makeup removers. 

We love: White Knight Tubular Mascara. Water resistant tubes build length and clump-free volume with a dual functioning brush. Plus, it’s enriched  ingredients to encourage natural lash growth!

 

Brow pencil

 

Is there anything more essential than the perfect brow? We think not. 

You’re spoilt for choice when it comes to amazing brow products (*swoon*) but if you want to rock a minimalist makeup kit, stick with a brow pencil. 

Feathery, natural looking brows are so quick and easy to create with the right pencil. 

Here’s exactly how to create the right brow for your face shape.

Choose one shade lighter than your hair for a softer look; unless you’re really fair. In that case, go a little deeper with the shade as slightly darker brows will frame your face and enhance your eyes more than a really light tone.

Remember, the idea isn’t to draw your brows on, use the brow pencil to fill in gaps and bare spots. 

We love: Brow Magic is a universal brow pencil that solves all your colour uncertainties - one colour suits all. 

 

Bronzer

 

Are you maximising your bronzer’s best multitasking abilities? 

A great bronzer will allow you to add just a shimmer of warmth, a subtle contour or an all out just- came-from-the-beach glow. With this kind of power, it’s one of the non-negotiable everyday makeup essentials.

Bronzer should be applied with a large fluffy brush

Swirl the brush in the bronzer, tap the brush to remove excess product (very important!), then start with your cheeks. 

Starting at the outer part of your cheek,  sweep the brush up and down working your way in. Repeat on the other side. Then finish with your forehead, chin, and neck. 

Keep building colour until you’ve achieved your perfect level of glow. 

We love: Unicorn Chocolate Bronzer for all the silky bronzing powder goodness.

 

The perfect pinky-nude lip colour

 

The lip shade we all need in our lives. 

From skin tones that range from fair skin to olive skin and dark skin the right pinky-nude shade is out there for everyone. It’s just a matter of finding the perfect match for you. 

Why is pinky-nude so good for an everyday makeup look? The right shade will have your smile and skin looking really bright and fresh. 

If you have lighter skin tones, aim for a colour about the same as your natural lip. Too light and you’ll risk your lips disappearing.

Medium skin tones can pull off a pink shade lighter than their natural lip colour while deeper berry shades work beautifully for dark skin tones.

Pro tip - Very gently exfoliate your lips before applying your lip shade. This will remove any dry old skin and increase blood circulation to your lips for a natural flush of colour. 

We love: Lip Magic Balm. It’s pink pout perfection! Suits all lips as the colour adjusts depending on your skin’s own pH levels. A super nourishing lip balm ideal for an easy but polished everyday look.

 

Foundation and / or BB cream

 

A glowing, sheer base is definitely an everyday makeup essential. 

Create a fresh, radiant look with sheer foundation or BB cream for a breezy ‘no-make-up make-up’ look.

What’s the difference? While foundation is designed to give coverage and smooth skin tone, BB cream is truly a base multitasker. 

“BB” is short for beauty balms or blemish balms. They are tinted cream products that play the role of sheer foundation, sunscreen, moisturiser, all in one tube.

On your great skin days (we wish you many) BB cream is enough to do the job for lighter coverage. 

Foundation is the way to go when you feel like there’s more you need to cover up - ciao blemishes!

We love: esmi Skin Minerals vegan Liquid Mineral Foundation and Mineral BB cream.

5 Beautiful Makeup Looks You Have To Try

Been relying on the same old makeup game for years? Break out of your rut with 5 easy-to-follow makeup looks and trends to experiment with at home.

 

Flirty, flushed cheeks

The flushed cheek is a little bolder than the ‘I’m barely blushing’ look. One of the best makeup looks to glow up a tired complexion with a pop of colour.

STEP #1 - Choose your shade of blush

If your skin has warm or olive undertones, berry and brick shades are a good pick. For cool or pink undertones, go for peach shades, baby pink, or a lighter plum. 

We love PONi Unicorn Candy Blush because it flatters all skin tones and types thanks to a palette that blends from a subtle peach glow to a cotton candy pink. 

STEP #2 - Apply and blend

Using a tapered blush brush, start by applying blush to the apples of your cheeks. Find the ideal spot by smiling and then sweep blush on the roundest parts of your cheeks, working upwards.

Blending is key. By blending upwards you lift and soften the colour for a more natural look without harsh lines. You want an intense-looking colour but not clownish makeup disasters

STEP #3 - Finish with a touch of highlighter

To complete your flushed cheek look and create more definition, blend a little highlighter along your cheekbones. You can’t go wrong with PONi Champagne Highlighter

 

The black, smokey eye

 

Out for a night of dancing, drinks, and a little mischief? One of the classic makeup looks, the sultry smokey eye is SO perfect. 

STEP #1: Get your shadow on Start with eye shadow for the perfect smoky base effect

No matter your palette choice - be it classic greys and blacks or sultry bronzes - the method for nailing the perfect smoky eye is the same. 

Choose 3 shades from your palette and apply the lightest shade to the inner corners of your eyes. 

Follow this by choosing a deeper shade for the centre of your lids. Finally, choose the darkest shade of the palette and apply to the outer corner of the eye and deepen your crease by applying it to the outer ‘V’ of your lid.

STEP #2: Grab your eyeliner

Apply a dark liner - be it grey, black, deep blue - to the upper lash line. For maximum impact, choose a liquid eyeliner. PONi Pegasus Liquid Eyeliner is effortless to apply and waterproof for a locked-in-place look. 

STEP #3: Add lashings of mascara

What’s a smokey eye without dramatic lashes? Sweep on a few coats of PONi White Knight Mascara for the ultimate volume and length.

 

Glossy eyeshadow 

 

The dewy trend of glossy eye shadow is one of the makeup looks showing no sign of slowing down. It’s high impact and takes a little know-how to master but oh so worth it!

STEP #1 - Prime your lids

A primer will help you create a smooth canvas to make the rest of your eye makeup application a breeze. Don’t have a primer? Use a little concealer instead.

STEP #2 -  Choose Your base

Any eyeshadow formula can work as a base. A cream iridescent shadow that has a shimmer finish or, if you prefer powder, go for a metallic shade. 

Keep in mind that the colour can look more intense once you’ve topped it with the gloss. 

STEP #3 - Get Your Gloss On

There are eye glosses out there designed especially for this look but you can get away with using a clear tube of lip gloss too. Just check it’s safe to use on your eyes. 

Grab a clean, dense eyeshadow brush and dab it into the gloss. Then carefully apply the gloss over your eye shadow. A little goes a long way so go easy on the application - you don’t want it to end in a sticky mess.

Finish your glossy eyeshadow look with a few coats of mascara. 

 

 

Slim, minimal brows

 

Ok, ok. We’re not talking about intentionally going for the over plucked, barely-there brows of the 90s. 

This is one of the makeup looks about working with what you’ve got. If your natural brows are lighter or on the thinner side, you don’t have to go all out creating thick, super styled brows. 

Polishing your natural brows, but not going overboard, is about keeping your look simple and balanced. Love a low maintenance look? This is for you.

 Step #1 - Fill in your natural arch with a pencil

We LOVE brow pencils for creating a natural look, quickly and easily. Starting at the bottom of a clean brow, use short, soft strokes that mimic the natural hair to fill in any gaps. 

Focus on the sparse areas but don’t get heavy handed or try and fill in too far outside of your natural brow.

Try PONi Brow Magic, it’s super easy to use and the universal shade suits everyone.

Step #2 - Add a little volume with powder

Eyebrow powder and pencil are a winning combination for easy, minimal brows. 

The addition of powder after pencil helps add the illusion of volume while keeping brows natural looking. Plus, it sets the pencil.

Lightly dip the brush into the eyebrow powder. Move the brush upward using light, feather-like strokes. Finish the look by swiping on clear brow gel for long-lasting hold.

We love PONi Brow Duo Powder and PONI Zebra Clear Brow Gel.

 

The blurred lip

 

Stuck for new makeup ideas? Meet the blurred lip. The bold lip’s cousin but a little more wearable. You still get a punch of colour without the high maintenance. 

Step #1 - Choose your hue and apply lipstick

Like the bold lip, choose lipstick in a bright or deep hue. Apply your shade of choice to the centre of your upper and lower lip, focusing most intensity in the centre. 

Step #2 - Blur those lines

The idea of this look is that it isn’t too perfect. Use a lip brush and gently smudge the lipstick along the edge of your lips. The goal is to keep the intensity of colour in the centre while creating a blurred effect along the outline.
