Dewy & natural make-up look

Dewy and natural no make-up make-up look inspired by Carolina Herrera Spring/Summer 2012
I seem to have a reoccurring obsession with faces - I've always loved studying them, especially the eyes and expressions, the lines. I used to draw them when I was a teen. 

Now, having successfully, and sadly, caged the artists in me, I just look at photos. Some of them, ironically, are from the fashion shows, with the make-up and all - I guess, this has something to do with the paradox of living in a female state of mind.

The made-up faces that attract me the most are all very natural, the no-make-up-make-up kind, not only because I prefer the bare look, but it also seems the easiest one to achieve (as I naively believe). This idea created by Diane Kendall with MAC for Carolina Herrera Spring/Sumer 2012 is exactly what I am after - the face as nature intended, only flawless and polished. 

According to MAC... 

FACE

* Apply Studio Moisture Tint SPF 15 with Foundation Brush No. 190 to lightly hydrate and even the skin tone

* Follow with Select Cover-Up using the brush as above, only where needed

* Use Powder Blush Brush No. 129 to apply Pro Sculpt Sculpting Powder Pro Palette as a contour under the cheekbones

* Gently blend Sheertone Blush in Bllushbaby downwards on the checks in the Sculpt contour

* Dust Powder Blush in Modern Mandarin over the apples of cheeks with Powder Blush Brush No. 129
* Finish with Iridescent Powder in Silver Dusk dusted over the high planes of the cheeks to highlight

EYES

* Apply Pro Paint in Deep Brown with Shader Brush No. 242 over the eyelids and then blend upwards with a clean Blending Brush No. 217 to diffuse the edges

* Use Fluidline in Blacktrack applied with Eyeliner Brush No. 209 through the upper lash lines assuring that the inner corners of the eyes are not neglected. 

LIPS


* Add Dish It Up through the centre of the lip

* Apply Preferred Pink Trend Lipstick Palette with finger to finish the lip with a hint of shine

And lets not forget about the hair... Use Moroccanoil to tame the fly-aways and add extra shine.

  2. Oh my - I can honestly say that I know I could never be comfortable in a look that doesn't include mascara. I know this is the North American in me, but it's true.
