In what order do you apply your makeup?
The choice of makeup products is essential for a natural healthy glow, but so is the order in which each beauty product is applied. Here are some recommendations for everyday makeup to reveal your natural beauty.
Before considering any makeup, there are some important rules to follow; never forget to remove makeup from your sensitive skin at night, and implement a simple but effective daily skincare routine to cleanse and moisturise your skin in the morning and evening. To ensure that your skin is perfectly clean while respecting its needs and sensitivity, always choose a makeup remover or cleanser that is suitable for your skin type. They will remove traces of night cream, sebum and perspiration and prepare your skin for beauty treatments.
Then, apply your usual face care products, adapted to your needs: anti-ageing serum, day cream, eye contour treatment, etc. A lightly tinted moisturising cream makes an excellent foundation. It discreetly corrects slight imperfections. Light green reduces facial redness. Peach provides a natural healthy glow. Iridescent brightens the complexion.
Then, here are the steps we recommend to achieve a simple and natural makeup look. This, of course, can be adapted to suit you, your skin and your lifestyle.
- Correct and illuminate skin tone.
- Enhance the look.
- Add a touch of colour to the lips while caring for them.

How do you apply makeup naturally?
Natural face makeup
For a light makeup look, start by blurring imperfections with the corrective power of Couvrance Corrector Sticks. Choose the colour that will camouflage your minor imperfections: green for redness, yellow for blue-violet circles, coral for dark spots. This makeup product can be blended and tapped in with a fingertip or a brush. Finish correcting skin imperfections and even out your skin tone with a foundation texture that suits your skin type and shade that matches your skin tone:
- Couvrance Fluid Foundation Corrector conceals moderate imperfections on sensitive skin.
- Couvrance Compact Foundation Cream Comfort corrects and evens out severe imperfections on dry skin thanks to its creamy, silky texture.
- Couvrance Compact Foundation Cream, with its matte powder finish, provides the same coverage for normal to combination skin and can be used as body makeup.
For a two-in-one action, also consider tinted day creams or even tinted sun care such as Tinted Compact SPF 50. This mineral foundation is formulated without chemical filters or fragrance, for optimal tolerance on reactive skin and high sun protection.
Compact foundation should be applied with a makeup sponge. To correct invisibly, apply the foundation with the sponge to the face and neck, then smooth from the centre to the contours of the face to lightly even the complexion; if necessary, add a touch of foundation to the sponge and tap specific areas to intensify the correction. For erasing dark circles or reducing shadowy areas, the Couvrance Conceal Brush is ideal thanks to its discreet beige colour and its long-lasting hold.
To set your makeup, apply the Translucent or Brightening Mosaic Powder depending on the desired finish and sculpt your face with light touches of the Healthy Glow or Sun Mosaic Powder on your cheeks, cheekbones, upper forehead, the tip of your chin and neck. Better than a blush, its extremely soft texture enhances your features for a natural makeup look.
Natural eye makeup
For natural-looking beautiful eyes, there’s no need to apply loads of cosmetic products. Subtle makeup is achieved by intensifying your eyes in two steps:
- Redefine and shape your eyebrows with an eyebrow pencil such as the Couvrance Eyebrow Pencil.
- Intensify and curl your lashes with the Couvrance High Tolerance Mascara.
Natural lip makeup
Eau Thermale Avène offers you a natural and minimalist makeup option for your lips by combining the colour of a lipstick, the moisturising care of a lip balm, and the shine of a gloss in one beauty product. The Lip Perfector Balms take care of sensitive lips and give them an ultra-feminine finish. Three colours are available to match your look and your desires.
