The ‘less is more’ approach to make-up has been key to many editorial and runway beauty looks for the past few years now. Surprisingly, it can actually be quite difficult to create a pared back, natural beauty look without looking washed out or achieving adequate coverage.
Below are some top tips recommended to me over the years:
 
Pick the right base. This first step is imperative to ensure you get the right amount of coverage without going to heavy- you don’t want to see thick foundation and concealer, but more a natural, glowing complexion.  Look for oil-free products if you have especially oily skin, and opt for moisturizing foundations, tinted creams or BB cream if you have normal-dry skin. Keep these to a minimum however, and use a small dab of concealer on imperfections such as spots and dark circles under the eye.
Laura Mercier have a life-saving concealer called ‘Secret Camouflage’- the name says it all really! Two different tones that you can blend into the perfect colour for all areas and imperfections of the face.
 
Blush and highlighter are the key elements in this look to give you that natural, healthy glow. A soft pink wash over the cheeks will give you a healthy warmth in your face, and a small amount of highlighter at the highest point of your cheeks creates a shimmer when the light hits.
 
To complete the look a light application of mascara on the top and bottom lids will give your eyes a subtle definition, and a clear or soft pink lip gloss will balance your features.
Mecca have a wonderful selection of tinted balms and long-wear lip glosses, whilst I can’t go past Yves Saint Laurent ‘Shocking’ mascara.
