Use only a little of this, since the abuse of fragrances is not usually in good taste and you can generate a negative reaction from the people around you.

7. Curl your lashes to be naturally pretty
You can curl your lashes with your favorite lash curler or try the old spoon trick. There are girls who have a spoon in their makeup bag. I personally recommend using a suitable lash curler better to reduce the risk hurting your lashes with a spoon or your fingers.
Curling your lashes will open your eyes and make you look fresh and awake.
If you decide to break the rules a bit, you can add a light layer of mascara.
8. Shape your natural eyebrows

The point is to avoid using many products on your skin, but if you think it is necessary, take the freedom to fill in your eyebrows as you use it regularly. At the end of the day that you are avoiding wearing makeup on most of your face and this will give you positive results on your skin.
9. Trust yourself
It is very important to have confidence in yourself. Know that your beauty is not defined by any established standard. if you want to wear makeup, make sure it is by choice and never by necessity. You are beautiful and we are all in a unique way. Always look for your inner beauty first, so you can reflect it on your outer beauty.
10. Smile, its the best makeup
the best trick to look beautiful with or without makeup is to SMILE! smile a lot, life is very beautiful even if there are not always good moments. Transmit your smile to others and this will work better than any trick.
I want you to know that being pretty is something natural and not something superficial. Sometimes it is worth feeling good by doing something different than every day in your look.
Try to change your makeup routine, your style of dress, try different looks until you find what you feel comfortable and beautiful with. Don’t be afraid to experiment and use what you like best. I challenge you to feel beautiful and happy.
