BEAUTY LOBSTER: FRESH FACED & FABULOUS

ffbannerOf all the makeup trends that have rocked this season the most wearable and most popular look this Fashion Week was the “No Makeup, Makeup” trend. Glowing skin, brushed out eyebrows, barely there mascara (or none at all), accompanied by a rosy natural flush to the cheeks and a swipe of pinky brown lipstick to enhance your natural lip colour rather than change it. A fresh faced beauty says, “contouring who…?”.

Although this look looks great on a svelte, cheekbone laden model how does the trend translate to real girls? Beauty Lobster is explored the natural, fresh faced makeup look on the streets and found beauties in abundance…

WHAT

Makeup Forever Mascara

L’Oreal Eyeshadow in Cream Lame

BEAUTY NOTES

I love Lisa’s look, she’s throwing off some really sexy J-LO vibes and her fresh faced, glowing makeup look is perfected with a light foundation and bronzer followed by a little natural brown smoke around the eyes and subtle highlighting in the inner corners for a wide eyed look. BIG FAN!

WHAT

YSL Pure Chromatics Eyeshadow

YSL Faux Cils Mascara

BEAUTY NOTES

Penni has stunning almond shaped eyes which she has subtly enhanced with a taupey iridescent shadow and a slick of mascara. The big brows accentuate the softness of this look. With already naturally beautiful skin, Penni has perfected her pallor with a light bb cream and a swirl of coral blush on the cheeks for warmth. Lips are left bare. So fresh.

Nivea Soft Rose Lip Base

Clinique Chubby Stick moisturising lip colour balm in 19 pudgy peony

Rimmel London Make up Match Perfection in 200soft beige

BEAUTY NOTES

Thuy’s rosebud lips take centre focus in her no makeup makeup look. Skin is kept fresh and matte with a little pink flush added to the cheeks and matching pick lipstick is patted on to the lips with the finger to give a natural tinted pout, that’s not too heavy or perfected.

WHAT

MAC Lipstick in Lady Danger

Benefit Highbeam Highlighter

BEAUTY NOTES

Even though Jess is sporting a scarlet pout I HAD to include her in my fresh faced beauties round up because she is the most perfect real-life version of Snow White I have ever seen. Her skin is simply luminous with carefully placed highlighter on the cheeks and waterline making her brown eyes pop. Her straight black brows are carefully filled with black powder. Her cute ebony bob frames her delicate features making her a strong runner for my favourite fresh faced beauty!

WHAT

Barry M Coloured Lengthening Mascara in Blue

BEAUTY NOTES

One thing all these girls have in common beautifully finished skin. When attempting the no makeup makeup look it’s important to get the base JUST so and then the rest is a piece of cake. I love how LingLing has embellished her perfect epidermis with a slick of blue mascara to compliment her pastel ensemble. And ginger eyebrows with the bleached out pixie cut..I kinda love it.
