If you wish to obtain a glowing skin, you can opt for an illuminating foundation. Any blemishes or under eye circles should be concealed using a concealer before the foundation is applied.
Apply to the apples of your cheeks a little bit of peach colored or rose colored blush to define and enhance your bone structure.
As far as eye make-up goes light colors are the way to go. Light colors like shimmery white, baby pink, peach will instantly offer your eyes a brighter, softer look. You can even go for a simple eyeliner at the base of the eyelashes just to define the shape of your eyes. Apply the eyeliner according to your eye shape. Curl your eyelashes and coat your eyelashes until they are very well defined using a black or a brown colored mascara.
For the lips, the sheerer the better. The “girl next door” look is based on a natural look, so a simple lip gloss or a light colored lipstick is the best solution. You will look radiant and gorgeous without looking unnatural. This is a look which will definitely help you catch the attention all the “girl next door” types do.
