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.

Makeup Monday – AMA Edition

Ah the American Music Awards.  I love music; I love award shows, what could be better?  Okay, okay, obviously the Grammy’s, but I have to take what I can get!  The stars were still out, showing off their awesome dresses, hair and of course, MAKEUP!  So here we are with another run down of how you can recreate some gorgeous looks with Naked Cosmetics pure pigments.

First, we have Selena Gomez.  I love that she wasn’t afraid to add some color to her eyes.  You can use Urban Rustic 04 to create her look.  It is a gorgeous pigment, and will glam you up in no time.

Ciara went with a really pretty smoky eye.  She started with a lighter color on the inner corner, which you can use Debonaire 03, and then blend out into Debonaire 05 to get this gorgeous look.

I loved the questions swirling around Gigi Hadid’s hairdo – Did she cut it?  Did she trick everyone?  Either way, there is no question about it, she looked stunning.  She kept her makeup super simple, and easy to recreate.  Use Painted Canyon 01 on the inner corner to give you that glowing look, and Naturally Nude 01 on your lids.  You can also use our lip base and Naturally Nude 02 to create her lip color, and you have her whole look.  Now whether to cut your hair or pin it, you’ll have to ask her hairstylist.  🙂

Demi Lovato looked so glamorous.  I loved her hair, and her makeup was perfection.  She also had a smoky eye, but hers was a bit more matte.  To recreate her look, use Debonaire 01 and Sierra Nevada 06, and blend, baby, blend!  A ton of mascara should finish it off nicely.  Use your favorite deep red lip color and you’ll be confident in no time.

Congrats to our Favorite Female Country Artist Carrie Underwood!  She was looking fabulous as always!  Carrie always has just the right amount of glam.  Her eyes were played up just enough, with a matte nude lip.  To mimic her look, use Sierra Nevada 02 on your eyes with lots of mascara.  Pair with your favorite matte nude lipstick and you’re good to go.
