While bold trends like red lips and green eye shadow are hot this fall, the nude, “flawless” face is also popular. Here are some tips to help you get the look:
- Apply a primer, like Smashbox Photo Finish Light Foundation Primer ($36 at Sephora), before foundation – it will make it go on smoother and stay put longer.
- Use a tinted moisturizer, like Mac Studio Moisture Tint ($29.50 at Nordstrom) as your foundation. Or, if you already have a shade you love, mix it with your moisturizer for a natural, sheer finish.
- Apply a nude or pale pink sheer lipstick, like Lorac Sheer Lipstick in Nude ($18.50 at Ulta.com), to lips. Sheer lipstick adds a hint of color without looking too glossy or unnatural.
- Swipe on a coat of mascara in brown (if you are blonde or have light brown or red hair) or black (if you are a dark brunette or have black hair). We suggest Maybelline Great Lash Washable Mascara because it comes in a variety of colors – Brownish Black, Dark Brown, Soft Black, etc. ($4.89 at Beauty.com).
