UPDATE: This post originally ran on the 7th of May, but because we’re in love with all things 90’s right now we thought we’d bring it back .
From our in-house Beach Designer: Early 1990’s Kate Moss is not only my favorite era of hers but it’s also the most perfect example of that no make-up look. Here are some helpful hints to getting that effortless natural bare look… It really is oh-so-simple.
Firstly, do your daily cleanse and moisturize, but make sure when you wash your face to do so with cold water — this wakens up your face and leaves you feeling bright-eyed and bushy-tailed. If you need a base/foundation, add it! I used Nars Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer with that ever-important SPF 30 — try to avoid getting it on your eyelids. Next, use an ever-so-tiny bit of Vaseline across the top of your lids, using your ring fingers to apply. Use a blending brush to remove/blend any excess.
Sweep a coat of Sephora’s Professional Clear Natural Mascara onto your lashes and finish the eyes by applying Anastasia Brow Gel across those eyebrows, keeping in place any waifs and strays. Now for those flushed cheeks… Starting from the apple of the cheek, follow the cheek bone for about 1” and apply Cheek Stain in Natural Beauty by Tarte — you can either gently blend this with a powder blending brush or simply use your fingers as I did. If you have those gorgeous freckles, too, all the better for perfecting the look!
Finish by spraying some salt spray onto those locks (our homemade version is coming to you in a post soon) and braiding two plaits into the front of your locks… Kate Moss, eat your heart out!
