No Makeup “Makeup” | Natural Radiance | She Glows

The one makeup look that will never go out of style is the…

dum da da dum 

Au Naturel look.

Not a surprise I’m sure, but seriously there is nothing more envy worthy than someone who is confident in their own skin. Although I would love to truly rock this look and feel great, I admit it…I cheat and mimic a bare face with a few essential products. (See list below).

Now ideally, who wouldn’t love to roll out of bed and head out of the house with a flawless complexion, bright eyes, and defined cheek bones without applying an ounce of makeup.  But let’s be real that is just not the case most days (or any day for that matter).  Lately I’ve found myself gravitating toward more neutral complementary products to be applied sparingly.  So if your mornings or anything like mine, forget the cream contour and ditch the winged liner. Simply take an extra 5 to 10 minutes then get on your way looking great in your own skin (well almost…).

Below are a list of products that I like to use to achieve my Au Naturel flawless finish:

The Romantic | Makeup Look

A romantic makeup look perfect for any occasion.

The Romantic

A fresh, soft, natural makeup look

With Valentine’s Day right around the corner I wanted to share a soft romantic makeup look that enhances natural features.  The look utilizes subtle color to define the eyes and cheeks.  The key to this look is to find a concealer that is just one to two shades lighter than your normal foundation to apply under the eyes and below the cheeks.  See my full list of products below.  (PS. These are all staples in my cosmetic bag…no one hit wonders here!)
