The “No Makeup Look” A New Trend???

NomakeupHello again everyone, I wanted to share with you some thoughts around one of the latest trends in the Beauty industry.  I came across an article a few weeks ago in the New York Times Fashion & Style section (May 7th), “Beauty Unmasked for All to See — No-Makeup Look As a New Beauty Standard”.

It talks about the “no-makeup look as the new beauty standard” and raised the question of whether going bare-faced makes you more confident and authentic.  Well, it might, especially for those referenced in the article like Beyoncé and Gwyneth Paltrow.  Most seemed to be under 30 with pretty terrific looking skin, lush brows and lashes, and naturally rosy lips and cheeks.

As I read this article, someone who would never walk out of the house without some makeup, I realized this trend falls in line with what Beauty EverLasting preaches.

The key to wearing makeup is this: Less Is More.  

It’s not about hiding our imperfections, but enhancing our natural beauty.   Just a little bit of lipstick or blush can make any woman feel prettier, which in turn, makes us feel more confident.

The beauty of this is once its done, you won’t need to put on makeup every day. Granted over time, permanent makeup fades but you can always comeback for a touch up.

Beauty trends will come and go.  But as women, whatever our age, we will always wear makeup in a way that will make us feel pretty and confident to face the world.   So if you have any questions on this give me a call.

That’s all for now.  Until next time… 

BE Beautiful everyone!

And have a Happy Memorial Day!!!
