I have been wearing this look lately and my Fiance has been all about the compliments. Having said that he is the kind of guy that says 'Hello beautiful' when I walk into the room after my bath with a rosy shiny face, fluffy freshly washed hair and mismatched jim jams. Liar!
But seriously he always seems to be ever so slightly more adoring when I am wearing less makeup?
I think because I enjoy wearing make up and I am relatively 'ok' at applying it, it's all to easy to over egg the pudding just to show that one can blend, apply liner, contour, wear colour etc etc. Sometimes maybe less is more...
This look is not about being on trend or making a statement but just simply to highlight what is already there.
Here is my 'nude' FOTD
I used MAC Bare study paint pot all over my lid and contoured with a peach from the MAC Play on Plums Mineralize eye shadow. The darker shade was very lightly smudged under lower lashes. As always with a 'fresh' look ivory eyeliner was applied directly to the waterline, MAC Zoom Lash was applied to the lashes and brows were filled in using Illamasqua shadow then set with a clear gel.
All of this for a Natural look...

And that's it folks, what do you think? do you agree that sometimes creating a 'natural' look can take just as much time as a full on glamour look?
