Look Fabulous Without Makeup

Let yourself be inspired by the models in the Carolina Herrera F/W 2012 show and let your natural beauty shine.

When you’re in a hurry or when the weather outside is excruciatingly hot, the last thing on your mind is to pile on foundation, eyeshadow and blush on your face. Here are a few tips so that you can look absolutely fabulous, even if you go makeup-free:

–> Exfoliate your skin regularly. Choose a scrub especially destined for your face and use is three times a week to get rid of all the dead cells.

–> Make sure your brows are perfectly groomed and have a suitable shape that works with your face shape. The best thing is to go to a professional salon and have a professional give them the right shape, after which you can maintain it by doing regular touch-ups.

–> Keep your vision bright. If you have red eyes, use a couple of eye drops.

–> Even if you choose not to wear mascara, you can define your lashes with the help of a nourishing serum, which they need anyway. Using a special brush, you can also apply a little bit of the serum to your eyebrows, so that they maintain their shape throughout the entire day.

–> Keep your skin hydrated. During summer, forget about heavy creams, at least during the day. Choose a light moisturiser with light-reflecting proprieties instead, which will make your skin glow.

–> Avoid washing your face with tap water. Try a thermal water spray instead. Keep it in the fridge before spraying it on your skin and enjoy the cool, fresh feeling.

–> Use a moisturising and nourishing lip balm to keep your lips hydrated and kissable.
