Kate Upton, Justin Verlander’s fiancée, is sharing some easy daily makeup routine tricks for busybodies. The model went on Instagram with Lash Star Beauty founder Tracy Murphy to share some fast face fixes to perfect your natural makeup look without hiding your inner beauty. Lipstick and eyeshadow can cover up your natural features or, when applied lightly, give you a fresh and beautiful look.

Kate Upton told Marie Claire that she prefers natural makeup for her personality, “I’m a talker—and I don’t have a filter. Plus, I’m always smiling. I think if I walked into a room wearing neon or lots of makeup, people would be like, ‘Whoa, it’s all too much!’ So I tone down my makeup for balance.” She takes advice from a makeup artist who once told her she should “start with pretty.”

She starts off by brushing her brows, putting on a bit of brown shadow and mascara, then using Bobbi Brown’s concealer kit to cover up any blemishes and dark spots. “You can always add a lip color and enhance it from there,” she adds, “but if you start with pretty, then it’s more about the woman than the makeup.”

One of the beauty artists she works with is Murphy, who, on Instagram, shared three simple makeup tricks that improve your appearance: brows, lashes, and skin! Once these three parts of your face are taken care of, you’re good to go!

As the founder of Lash Star Beauty, Murphy crated a new professional makeup line that is devoted to all things eyelashes. Known as “The Lash Queen,” Murphy transforms the eyes of celebrities and models for various shoots, shows, and red carpets. She is often sought out by the other women on set to teach them how to do their own lashes too!

Upton’s Favorite Beauty Products

Aside from making sure her lashes are in top shape, Upton also swears by a few key beauty products to enhance her youthful glow. She swears by Bobbi Brown’s surf eye palette, smokey eye mascara, Dr. Hauschka skin care cleansing cream, and the original beauty blender. Upton believes wearing makeup isn’t the same as retouching, “It completes my outfit. I mean, you buy nice shoes to make an awesome outfit, and it makes you feel good. Putting on makeup is the same.”

Many celebrities are focusing on enhancing their natural beauty with more neutral makeup looks and taking care of themselves from the inside. The trend is helping to encourage young women to not think that they need to wear a ton of makeup to be beautiful.
