Fall Make-up: Natural Beauty

October 11, 2012 | Heather

Fall make-up has gone back to basics. Runways, like Chanel, sported fresh, natural faces with bare lips and glowing complexions. Refreshingly natural, this look simplifies your make-up routine without sacrificing a bit of style. Start with concealor to disguise blemishes, and then layer on foundation and powder. Skip the bronzer, blush and bold lips. Stick to a simple clear or tinted gloss or balm (to capture Chanel’s bare lips look). Finish with well-groomed brows, a sweep of neutral eyeshadow and a coat of basic black mascara.

1. bareMinerals Flawless Definition Mascara in Black ($24)
100% pure. bareMinerals combines antioxidants and natural extracts (Jojoba, Meadowfoam Seed, and Shea Butter) for a gentle, nurturing mascara. This basic black formula accentuates, lengthens, darkens, and lifts for simply stunning lashes.

2. Bobbi Brown Eye Shadow in Wheat ($20)
Keep your eye make-up simple. A sweep of neutral eyeshadow in creme, brown, or beige is all you need for this bare-your-beauty face. Bobbi Brown’s formula is a silky, matte formula that glides on smoothly and blends easily.
