The trend: natural and nude makeup
Get the look
Use a brush to apply foundation a hint lighter than your skin tone on the highlight areas of your face — the cheeks, under the eyes, the centre of the forehead and the Cupid’s bow, says Gordon Espinet, senior VP of makeup artistry for M.A.C Cosmetics. Make brows the centrepiece of your look by defining them with two shades of pencil — a lighter tone to fill in the brow, and a darker shade to draw in subtle hairs. Mascara and eyeshadow are optional.
If you’re all out of eyebrow gel or pencil, brown mascara can work in a pinch.
