This summer has filled been with outrageous colors, but the biggest trend of them all is going bare… bare faced that is. Beauty magazines everywhere have been pushing the “barely there” campaign and promoting that less is more. To follow this trend, use a concealer that exactly matches your skin tone to a soft bronzer to give you a light sunkissed skin look. Even the more colorful products like eyeshadows and lipsticks have new lines dedicated to natural/nude look. Here are several key pieces to pick up this summer based on your natural hair color. Time to go bare girls.
For you Blondes out there try the Guerlain Terracotta Bronzing Powder in 01, a bronzer with a slight shimmering peach undertone. Apply over the apples of your cheeks, across the bridge of your nose, and on your temples to mimic where the sun naturally hits your face.
Brunettes, be bold in a natural way this summer by trying the Nars Copacabana Illuminator to add light-catching highlights. Don’t go all the way to the tip of the nose, or it will look oily, and don’t use too much. Also pair with M.A.C. Satin Lipstick in Myth, a satin-finish lipstick that is just as resilient as cream blush. Put it to the test on your lips—from drinking to wiping your mouth—and if the lipstick stays on through all that, then it will tint your cheeks all day long as well.
As for you daring and sultry Redheads, try Shiseido Makeup Shimmering Cream Eye Color in WT 901. It is a beautiful copper eye shadow to apply all over your lids for a summery take on smoky eyes, which will brighten and define your eyes.
