The New Neutrals

One of the biggest beauty trends seen across runways this year was minimal, barely-there makeup.  Designers like Marc Jacobs, Chanel & Chloé all debuted fresh-faced models in a simple neutral palette.  Unlike flashy bright blue eyeshadow (a trend that reminds me far too much of the 80's), this pared-down routine is one I can definitely get on board with.  The idea here is not to actually go out with a bare face, but to use makeup only where you need it & stick to warm flesh-tones & pinkish nudes so the result is a natural look that simply accentuates your features.  My recommendation is to skip your full-coverage foundation in lieu of a tinted moisturizer or CC cream (which I prefer as we head into the warmer months).  You can also try switching out your black mascara for a soft brown shade instead.  And don't forget the highlighter!  This is a crucial step to create that lit-from-within glow (see my tips for applying it here).  Here are my top beauty product picks from Nordstrom for achieving this pretty & natural look:
