Spring beauty: We can’t shut up about ‘no make-up’ make-up trend

Mar 14, 2016 10:54 AM IST

The Spring/Summer 2016 ready to wear shows consistently pushed a barefaced, natural make-up look, such as the sweet and angelic vibe at Christian Dior, and the low-key, ‘anti selfie’ vibe seen at Stella McCartney and Isabel Marant.

If there is one key beauty accessory for this spring then it is dewy, glowing skin.

There are several tricks to recreating that luminous catwalk finish when it comes to applying your make-up at home. At Dior, the models wore a dewy-finish foundation with a dab of blusher placed high on the cheekbone, to create the impression of a natural flush, while at Opening Ceremony, make-up artist James Boehmer prepped the skin and then applied Nars Triple X Lipgloss to the mouth, the bridge of the nose, the high points of the cheekbones and the eyelids for a particularly dewy look.

Celebrity beauty artist Lisa Eldridge points out that in order to achieve the natural look, foundation should be viewed as a product to even out the skin tone and calm down redness rather than provide total coverage for every blemish.

She recommends using a tinted moisturizer for a light coverage, before pinpointing trouble areas with a thick, heavy-duty concealer. A tiny amount of stick foundation, liquid foundation or hot poured concealer applied with an eyeliner brush or a flat synthetic eye brush will do all the hard work where necessary, without covering areas of the skin that don’t need it. Set with a light powder to make sure the concealer stays in place.

The ‘no make-up’ make-up look has never been more accessible.
