Have you ever wondered how to get a natural base in three steps? Well, read on to find my no-make-up make-up steps, using Pacifica beauty.
As a freelance copywriter, I work from home, and rarely go into an office. So on my normal work days, I use these three steps to a natural base using Pacifica Beauty natural make-up. I wear mascara, and blusher too, of course, but I thought I’d share these little skin-perfecting gems with you. They won’t give you a perfect complexion, but they give a subtle, radiant glow and do blend blemishes and shadows away. There are no nasty chemicals either. I choose these three Pacifica products from natural beauty store Love Lula, to review as part of my role as an accredited blogger*.
How To Get a Natural Base with Pacifica Beauty
These products are all user-friendly, and so easy to use. Just follow these three steps and you’ll find out how to get a natural base in minutes.
Step 1: Pacifica Alight Multi-Mineral BB Cream
Let’s start with your base. Blend a layer of three Pacifica products from natural beauty store Love Lula over your skin.
I’ve been using this BB for a while as a primer before my mineral foundation, or RMS Beauty Un-Cover Up. It is more of a lightly tinted moisturiser than a BB cream, so it doesn’t give much coverage.
You would need to have pretty fantastic skin to wear it alone!
Pacifica say: “Think sheer moisturizing tint with benefits. A true multitasking miracle that hydrates, primes, illuminates, and perfects leaving a sheer bare skin finish. Specialized mineral pigments that instantly adjust to your skin shade allows one color to work for many.”
I’m always skeptical of ‘one shade suits all’ formulas, as my skin is very fair. But this colour actually works really well for me in summer – though it will be a little dark in winter. I would say it would most likely be too pale if you have dark skin though.
You can’t really see it in the picture, but the formula has a very subtle shimmer. It blends really well, giving a natural radiance. It’s also very moisturising, so you can easily skip moisturiser, unless you have very dry skin. It doesn’t offer any SPF protection, however, so unless I’m spending the day indoors, I do use an SPF moisturiser too.
Step 1: Pacifica Transcendent Concentrated Concealer
Next blend three Pacifica products from natural beauty store Love Lula over any blemishes, shadows and dark circles.
I use the light shade but it comes in natural, which is a little darker. I really like this concealer. It covers really well, without going cakey. The colour is great for disguising the bluish shadows under my eyes, as it has a peachy base tone. I find blending it with a fluffy brush looks the most natural. It is a little dark for me, but again when it’s blended looks really natural. I think it has light-reflecting particles too, as it seems to lighten the area as it covers.
Step 3: Pacifica Perfect Lotus Powder
To finish your base, use a kabuki brush to blend Pacifica Perfect Lotus Powder (£16.99 for 2g*) over your skin.
This absorbs shine and sets your base, as well as giving additional coverage. This pressed powder says it will ‘deliver hydrating, brightening coverage with a weightless texture’ with a ‘shine-free’ finish. I wouldn’t say it was shine-free – instead it’s more of a radiant glow, but it is flattering. If you have oily skin, you will probably need to either blot your skin, or apply more powder as the day goes on.
I would say it has more coverage than normal pressed powder, but not as much as a mineral foundation. It comes in two shades, and I use the lightest, which is a little dark. It is a teeny tin though so I am going though it quite fast.
These products together give a very natural look, with imperfections diminished, rather than erased completely. It’s ideal for weekends or if you have great skin already.
