BTM Beauty Breakdown: Au Naturel
Nothing goes better with sun-kissed skin then natural make-up, why let your make-up melt off your face in the summer heat when you can go nude, or at least barely there. Au Naturel means highlighting your natural features with as little product as possible, using neutral tones and light accents. Apply a light tinted moisturizer like Stila’s sheer moisturizer that has a little tint and a lot of moisture, plus it offers sun and water protection. To add some bronze highlights, swipe Urban Decay’s Baked Bronzer across your cheeks for a touch of sun goddess. For simple, pretty eyes use a neutral shadow like MAC’s shadow in Shroom, a earthy nude shadow that will keep your lids looking natural yet offer a slight shimmer. For mascara that elongates your lashes without looking like falsies, try a simple clean Maybelline Define-A-Lash mascara. On your lips, a sheer gloss a shade lighter then your lip color will offer a toned-down glam perfect for the Au Naturel look, like the Illamasqua sheer gloss in nude pink. With some light shades and touches of gold go Au Naturel with your make-up palette. Coco Chanel said before you leave the house, take one thing off; so BeTrenders if less is more, take off a layer of make-up and try the Au Naturel look for summer!
