A Natural has dominant YANG but slightly towards the right side of the Kibbe scale with a small amount of YIN. Naturals are angular, but with less sharp edges, compared to dramatics. They have muscular, broad, almost straight bodies.
When it comes to men, you will find their bodies looking very athletic and muscular. Even if they don’t work out, the muscles are still there and are very visible. This happens in women too, as a little bit of exercise is enough for their muscles to be seen.
When gaining weight, they still look taller than they are, and weight accumulates on their abdominal area, making the body look somewhat squarish. Their jaws get softer and their shoulders get wider.
Characteristics of a Natural:
- Might look tall, and broad.
- Wide shoulders with blunt edges.
- Long arms and legs with large wide feet.
- Flat-ish bust line with a straight waistline and hips.
- Body flesh looks muscular but lean.
- Wide angular faces with blunt edges.
- Wide-spaced eyes, broad lips, and fleshy/muscular cheekbones
You’re not a Natural if you:
- Have only soft facial features (round eyes, fleshy cheeks, full lips).
- Have very round hips.
- Have very sharp facial features.
- Have a very fleshy body.

hair, makeup & accessories
*While we recommend to complement your outfits with your hair, makeup, prints & accessories based on your essences, you can apply your Kibbe suggestions. This is really up to you, but when you incorporate your essence blend you end up with a most authentic style that feels more like you and is unique.
Hair for the natural:
-Tousled, loose, and free.
-Natural hair colors but with subtle high-lights.
-Slightly messy ponytail or low bun, with a few loose strands.
However, these type of hairstyles won’t look good on every Natural person. Every face is different.
makeup for the natural:
-Minimalist eye makeup.
-For the evening a subtle smokey eye.
-Natural color in lips.
Of course, just like the hair, it depends on your essences and seasonal color. Some might look amazing on these, but others will feel like wearing a custome.

What if I am a natural but I don’t look good on these lines and clothes?
Chances are you have the body type, but you don’t have natural essence. This means, you should mantain the structure of your outfits based on your Kibbe, but follow the rest based on your essences.
