BARELY THERE BASE
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.
