Just because you’re going for that natural beach babe look this summer doesn’t mean you won’t be wearing any makeup. In fact, sometimes looking like you haven’t made an effort with your makeup can be more difficult to achieve than an ultra glamorous look. For an easy and natural holiday look, that will take you from day to night, try Bodyography’s California Girl look. We’ve got the full tutorial below so keep reading for handy tips that will have people questioning if you wake up like that.

Effortless California Girl Makeup:

1. Prep skin with a good clear primer to hydrate, nourish and smooth your skin surface.

2. Buff on your foundation to give your skin natural looking coverage and an even tone.

3. Contour and highlight your features with a bronzer and highlighter.

4. Apply blush to the apples of your cheeks for the most natural flush of colour that hardly requires blending to look great.

5. Lightly groom your eyebrows with an eyebrow pencil in the most natural looking colour.

6. Sweep a natural, nude eyeshadow all over your eyelids and especially in the inner corners of your eyelids for added sparkle.

7. Line your upper eyelids and add a subtle wing on the outer corners of each eye with a liquid liner pen.

8. Apply two coats of mascara to your top lashes only.

9. Fill your lips in with a deliciously natural matt lipstick.

10. Fix the look with a light mist of setting spray and you’re good to go!
