Master the No-makeup Trend

no make up trend 1


One of my favorite shows of the 90’s was Full House.  I looked forward to the “TGIF” lineup every week.  I wanted to be DJ Tanner so bad.  She had the coolest teenager room and I loved her hair!  (Yes, I know – I’m a dork, but I digress.)  Being around the same age as DJ, I could empathize with much of her teenage drama.  One episode in particular stands out as I write this post.  She was entering junior high and thought the best way to fit in and look cool was to wear makeup…a LOT of makeup.  Needless to say her look was more clown than pretty.  She learned that the best approach to makeup is to look as though you are wearing none at all.  Now I love to try bold looks from time to time, but you just can’t be the classic “no-makeup” look.  Summer time is the perfect time to lighten up your look.  No one wants their face sliding half way off in the middle of a hot, humid day!

     Here are a few of my favorite products to achieve the no-makeup look:

Starting out with a good foundation is key.  Avon’s Ideal Nude Liquid Foundation combines mattifying powder with featherlight water-based pigments for fresh and natural-looking coverage.

Defining your brows is one of the most complementary tricks to enhance your face.  It can be a real game changer, especially if your hair is on the lighter side.

Make your eyes pop with a hint of color.  Eyeliner can sometimes be the difference in an awake face or a sleepy face.

Try Glimmersticks Liners for brows, lips & eyes!

You can’t go wrong with a nude lip.  Avon’s True Color Lipstick comes in shimmer and satin shades.  My favorite?  “Blush Nude” in satin.

“Polish” off your look with one of 31 shades in the True Color Pro+ Nail Enamel collection.  Try “Rose Quartz” or “Perfectly Flesh” for a perfect summer mani/pedi.
