As an online business owner, I know what it is like to be a women entrepreneur on camera. And I can tell you that there’s a big difference between those who look polished and professional and those who look like they’re wearing too much makeup.

The key to a natural makeup look is to enhance your natural beauty, not cover it up. In this makeup lesson, I’m sharing some tips for creating natural makeup using a soft neutral color palette. This is a great look for everyday wear, and it’s perfect for beginners because it’s super easy to follow.

Additional tips for women entrepreneurs on camera:

  • Use a light touch. This approach is perfect for layering. It’s better to start with less makeup and add more if needed.
  • Use natural colors. Bright or bold colors applied improperly can look too artificial on camera. When you are just starting out, stick with a soft neutral palette for a more natural makeup look.
  • Blend, blend, blend! Did I mention you should blend? This is especially important for foundation, concealer, eyeshadow, and blush.
  • Slow down. Don’t rush the makeup application process. Take your time to be intentional with your placement and technique. Speaking of technique…
  • Practice makes perfect. The more you practice, the better you’ll get at applying makeup for the camera.

With a little practice, you can create a natural makeup look that will help you look your best on camera and make a memorable impression on your audience.
