Natural is beautiful!

Simple, chic, and sometimes with freckles shining through, the au natural look gets updated and subtly illuminated with peachy, pinky shades to give a slight punch that looks almost doll-like. Makeup artist Tyron Machusen explains, “For lips, these shades of apricot and pink are flattering on everyone and really complement a gorgeous, fresh complexion.”

CREAMY EYES:

For eyes that glisten, first cover dark circles, and even the upper lid with a reflective concealer. Apply champagne shadow to lids, then define the upper lash line with deep brown shadow. Bolster lashes with a coat of lash primer, and finish with blue-black mascara to instantly brighten the eyes.

PEARLY LIPS:

For lush lips, first smooth them out with a lip exfoliator. Then outline and fill them in with shimmery nude lipstick. Take the shine up a notch with a layer of peachy gloss.

TRY THIS:

Emulsion Lip Exfoliant by Smashbox is the first sugar-based, peppermint, lip exfoliator that is perfectly edible, and smells delicious. Experience a cooling sensation as poppy seeds and sugar granules gently remove dry, flaky skin, while shea butter, jojoba, and antioxidants condition and revitalize lips.

To use: Apply emulsion to top and bottom lips – working it in a circular motion to exfoliate. Allow emulsion to remain on lips for several seconds until a cooling sensation begins. To remove, moisten a cotton pad with water and gently wipe away scrub. Follow with a generous application of Smashbox’s Treatment Lipstick.
