This year in makeup one of the trends is to wear minimal makeup or to just look super natural while wearing it. Last night's Grammys proved this to be right, with Rihanna and Beyonce wearing very beautiful and natural makeup looks. Though both of them looked very beautiful Rihanna was my favorite, because even though she opted for a more muted and natural look she still looks like she has a little bit of makeup on while Beyonce (in my opinion) looked a lot more natural with hers.
To me the secret in wearing the no-makeup makeup look is to find colors that will complement your skin tone. You can go super natural with this and only use colors that are very close to your own skin tone, or you can add some colors to add warmth to your skin, like Riri did in this year's Grammys, It looks like her makeup artist used copper tones on her crease and a warmer brown on her bottom lashes.
So when I saw Rihanna I just had to show you my version of her look. Now to be completely honest there is nothing new about this. I think we've all at some point tried a look like this before. For me it may be a little bit more challenging because I work at a makeup counter and I tend to wear more eye shadow colors than this. However I have my days when I just want a simpler look, that looks effortless and takes no time to create it. And this look is IT!
I kept it super duper simple and only used three products on my eyes, two shadows (one serves as primer) and my mascara! Same thing for my lips, only two products.
To me the whole point of this look is to let your own features speak for themselves. Nothing is being overdone and not too many products are being used. It's really the perfect everyday look in my opinion.
