The New Neutrals: Eight Beauty Products You Need Right Now
After all of the statement-making lips, bolder than bold cat eyes and pop art inspired nails, we find it sort refreshing to ease into the never fail comfort of a nice, complexion-mimicking neutral. Read on as we share eight universally flattering beauty musts for face, cheeks, lips and nails…
Prep the FACE and create a ‘no makeup’ look with the glow of a bronzing product. We suggest Dior Beauty Nude Tan Glow (212 872 8980) for oily skin types. For dry or more mature skin, reach for a cream based product like Edward Bess All Over Seduction (212 872 8826).
Highlight CHEEKS with a complexion-enhancing shade…think two or three shades deeper than your natural skin tone. Kevyn Aucoin Pure Powder Glow in Natura (212 872 8890) and Clinique Cheek Pop in Ginger Pop (212 872 2782) add depth and give the illusion of perfectly sculpted cheekbones.
Delicately frame EYES with Bobbi Brown Limited Edition Eye Shadow Quad Palette in Bronze (212 872 2681) and inconspicuously line close to the upper lash line with Napoleon Perdis China Doll Gel Eyeliner in Tao (212 872 8829). By swapping your traditional black liner for a deeper shade of brown, you create the look of naturally rimmed eyes.
Punctuate LIPS with a tone that’s neutral, yet slightly present…don’t wash yourself out. Try AERIN Beauty Rose Balm Lipstick in Cabana (212 872 2777). The cushiony texture is an added bonus.
Lastly, adorn NAILS in Tom Ford Beauty Nail Lacquer, Sugar Dune (212 872 2813). Apply two coats of this cool-toned beige and you’re perfectly in step with one of the season’s best beauty looks – The New Neutrals.
