In the second part of our Preen Series, Claire Mulleady, senior makeup artist at MAC Cosmetics, teaches us how to do a fresh, effortless no-makeup look that doesn’t require a gazillion products. This look is inspired by the diffused trend seen on the runways of Fashion Week which Claire worked in last season. The diffused trend isn’t just another “no makeup” makeup look as it’s all about making the skin’s color come out rather than imposing color on the complexion. By skipping out on harsh lines and sculpting techniques the look is sophisticated but easy to do and adjust to your own preference and skin color.
The trick here (other than having great skin) is highlighting your natural glow plus an ombré lip that’s more about a flushed look rather than a shocking statement. We bet this look wouldn’t take ten minutes of your time. Perfect for this busy work week, right?
