Summer Nude - FOTD

Neutrals, nudes, bare faced, seems like the trend this season.  Many colors are being very minimal in color selection and are going for the natural bare faced look.  This is definitely a trend that I like and I think fits for most people.

Summer Nude

Close ups of the eyes and cheeks:

Products used:

F: MUFE HD foundation, Sonia Kashuk concealer, MAC Instant Chic Blush, Bobbi Brown Shimmerbrick Platinum Pink

E: Smashbox lid primer, MAC Sable & Shroom eyeshadow, Smashbox Eyelights palette. MAC brown liner, studio fix mascara, Essence brow powder

L: MAC 2n lipstick, Nars striptease lipgloss

For me, I think that subtlety is best when trying to do a natural look.  You don't want to do an over exaggerated look, nor a bland one.  I'm not sure if I was able to achieve the look, but I hope I did.  All I needed was just a slight sweep of color on the eye, nude lips, and light pink shimmer on the cheeks. Its always cool to add in color but natural/nude looks are versatile and  easy to do.  No stress!

Lovely! Much as I adore a full face of dramatic makeup, I think it's really important to be able to achieve understated and more natural looks and this look fits the bill. Very pretty!
