THISDAY Style - - NEWS -

The no-makeup, barely-there look has been a main­stay on the run­ways for a while now. It is a look that res­onates with most women be­cause of its ef­fort­less and youth­ful ap­peal. When the all-nat­u­ral makeup trend first caught on, con­tours of the face were the fo­cus, but lately, there has been some mod­i­fi­ca­tions to this trend. In­stead of cre­at­ing con­tours, il­lu­mi­nat­ing or strob­ing helps to de­fine fa­cial fea­tures. Makeup ex­perts in­sist that the only way to pull off this look is to achieve flaw­less, glow­ing skin. At the re­cently Arise Fash­ion Week, the run­ways were lit with models spot­ting this beauty trend. The of­fi­cial beauty spon­sors, House of Tara, made sure to ap­ply this same look to suit a va­ri­ety of style choices, and the re­sults were stun­ning.

We went back­stage, to speak to the brand’s Head of Artistry, Rhema Ak­abuogu, and she gave us a few quick and easy steps to achieve the mod­ern pared down look.

SKIN: Cover prob­lem ar­eas with Tara Medium Cov­er­age Con­cealer. Ap­ply only on prob­lem ar­eas and blend well. Tip: make sure to choose a shade that’s clos­est to your nat­u­ral skin tone.

CHEEKS: Cre­ate the il­lu­sion of re­freshed and mois­tur­ized skin with a high­light­ing pow­der. High­light­ing el­e­vated parts of the face, adds a youth­ful glow to your look.

EYES: Open up the eyes by lin­ing the up­per eye with Tara liq­uid liner pen. Curl lashes and top with one to two coats of Tara fi­bre fuse mas­cara. Re­mem­ber to keep eye makeup at a min­i­mum when do­ing the barely-there look.

BROWS: Groomed brows are just as es­sen­tial as good skin when cre­at­ing makeup looks. Cre­ate full, well-shaped brows with Tara re­tractable pen­cil. Choose hues that go well with skin tone and hair color.

LIPS: A hint of color on the lips cre­ates a youth­ful and freespir­ited vibe. It also helps when your lip tube comes with ben­e­fits like sun pro­tec­tion and hy­dra­tion. Try Tara Ne­handa lip stain and a clear lip-gloss.
