Natural Beauties Rejoice: Pump up your No-Makeup Look

With the weather becoming warmer, this spring season is introducing an unexpected makeup trend. Long-gone is sweaty, foundation-caked skin.  It is finally time for natural makeup. Flushed cheeks, wispy brows, and luscious lashes are all the rage; not to mention touchable waves and sun-kissed highlights.  During Fall Fashion Week, catwalk princesses like Karlie Kloss not only knew how to strut their stuff, but also how to look fresh and dewy while doing so.  But in contrast to their bare face, the newest no-makeup trend enhances your natural beauty by giving your lips a pop of spring. Makeup artists for shows at  Spring Fashion Week, such as Elizabeth & James and Narciso Rodriguez, have swapped their go-to dark lip hues for colors that remind us of bubblegum and peonies.  These are shades that boost your natural lip color instead of washing it out. This trendy new version of natural makeup allows your face to look hydrated and blossoming all day long.  So, for all of you ladies who are on the go, or are just too swamped to sweep on black shadow and paint on rich lips, this look is perfect for you.




Take exactly three strokes of Creamy Mauve on your brush, since this will be the base color of this look.  Add a couple swipes of Classic Coral and a tiny bit of Pink Pizzazz in order to accomplish the peony-inspired shade.
