Lately the trends rocking the runways, the red carpets and even the beaches has been all about the bold colors!  We love these looks and I don’t think the bold hues are going anywhere soon.  But sometimes an occasion (or a rough morning) calls for something more natural…more nude!

There are trends and fads that we love and lose but there are also the staples, the go-to’s that we can always count on to make ourselves look our very best.  From our pro-team here are our 5 Favorite Makeup Looks.

  1. Matte Makeup – this flawless, gorgeous look has always been around.  Allowing your natural features to flourish and look fresh all day long.  Any of our Java or Naturally Nude pigments will enhance and beautify your skin.

2. Glowing & Youthful – This youthful, girl-next-door, look is always fashionable and perfect for Sunday dinners or weddings!  Easy to achieve with PC-01 for highlighter and NN-04 for blush.

3. The Smoky Eye – lay on some heat this date night with the perfect smokey eye.  Using DB-05 across the lids and SN-06 in the crease and on the water line, you can seriously add some sizzle to your game.

4. Cat-Eye – what is considered Retro has actually always been a fashion hit.  There are lots of ways to personalize the cat eye technique and it couldn’t be simpler with a small angled makeup brush and DB-06 for a hint of mesmerizing sparkle.

5. Bright Lips – VaVaVoom!  There is no better way to fake a great makeup day or flaunt a pouty lip.  Some of my favorite pigments for a rockin’ good lippie include DE-04, UR-04, TI-02 or MN-03.
