THE LOOK, “BARELY THERE BEAUTY”

WELCOME TO FEBRUARY! WINTER IS STILL IN FULL SWING. Thank you for stopping by to say hello. As we are exiting winter and entering Spring, We wanted to give you the option of a clean “barely there ” makeup face. SKIN PREP: Well hydrated is always recommended, but it’s a must to achieve this look. Alfred applies Khiels Ultra Facial Cream to the skin. The unique light weight texture provides 24 hrs of hydration. Equally important are the lips a generous amount or Khiels # 1 lip balm was applied. 

FACE: To achieve the Barley There Beauty look  the best products are a must.  Alfred chose one of his staples  Laura Mercier for this look.  First, Laura Mercier Foundation Primer was applied to the face followed by the Flawless Fusion Ultra Long Wearing Concealer. Sealing the deal with The Iconic Translucent loose Setting powder.

COLOR: Nude and Noir luxurious vega, cruelty free cream palette Reserve. EYES: Use your finger to Blanc  de Noir  to the eye lids, brow bone and to highlight the cheek bones.  It’s a drier cream, so use your fingers and not a brush. The eyes are finished with Makeup Forever Brown Mascara.
