BARELY THERE BASE

Friday - - Beauty -

Go­ing bare-faced has not only hit the cat­walks, but the celeb world too. Ali­cia Keys has ditched the slap and is go­ing (mostly) au na­turel, which gets a mas­sive high-five from us. On the cat­walk: From Michael Kors to Is­abel Marant (above) and Vera Wang, when it comes to make-up, it was con­signed to a layer of tinted mois­turiser and con­cealer if re­quired. In your life: Un­for­tu­nately we’re not all blessed with su­per­model skin, so for this trend to work for you, it’s time to in­vest in some re­ally good skin­care. For a flaw­less com­plex­ion you need a glow-boost­ing hy­dra­tor (try Chanel Hy­dra Beauty Flash Balm, Dh200) so that your skin is as plump and lu­mi­nous as pos­si­ble. To get your face prepped and ready for min­i­mal foun­da­tion, why not do as the supers do back­stage and put on a fast­work­ing, nour­ish­ing sheet mask? The hottest one is the Char­lotte Til­bury In­stant Magic Fa­cial Dry Sheet Mask, Dh72, which will keep your skin hy­drated for eight hours and is re­us­able up to three times. Then it’s time for some sheer cov­er­age. Guer­lain Météorites Baby Glow, Dh255, re­duces red­ness and uni­fies skin tone, keeps skin hy­drated while giv­ing medium cov­er­age and al­lows your skin to shine through. If you feel you need ex­tra cov­er­age then ap­ply Ben­e­fit Bo-Ing Con­cealer, Dh100, which comes in five shades, to those ar­eas, and then show off your nat­u­ral beauty.
