FRESH FACE INGENUE

Revisit the fresh faced understated days of early adolescence by keeping the skin raw yet incandescent.
Use minimal coverage and the smallest hint of blush across lips and cheeks to enhance the skin's natural texture and contours.

STEP 1: BARELY THERE

Creating a natural complexion is the hardest balance to strike, yet Nina mixed Top Secret’s Instant Moisture Glow with a little Touche Éclat All-In-One Glow Foundation – need to achieve the fresh coveted result. She applied the mixture focusing over the cheeks and any area in need of coverage. The final look should not be about flawlessness but more about softening. Nina used a dabbing movement - with the fingers - to add more coverage where needed.

STEP 2: GLOW GETTER

Nina followed using Touche Éclat Illuminating Pen over any areas that need extra highlight, such as between the brows, under the eyes, on the brow bone, bridge of the nose, over the lids as a base, on the cupid’s bow and into the corners of the nose. It’s iconic light formula blended effortlessly whilst adding a subtle dimension to a perfectly suited for a skin that is played down.

STEP 3: EYE CANDY

In order to maximise the lashes, Nina primed them using False Lash Effect Mascara Flash Primer to add natural volume and length.

She followed using a layer of False Lash effect mascara in 2 Fearless Brown at the root of the lash to keep the lash understated.

She enhanced the brows using Couture Brow Slim 1 in Ash Blond, applying the colour then following using the brush applicator located on the other end of the pencil to set the brow in the direction needed. An added value of the Couture Brow Slim is that it’s texture is also waterproof, making it particularly suited for played down brows as the colour will stay put in any condition.

STEP 4: HINT HINT

For the lips, Nina used Liquid Volupte Tint in Balm in 14 Underground Pink again applied lightly over the lips as an overall touch of hydrated colour.

You can also create added dimension to the lips by adding a second layer the same colour dotted with the finger under the cupid’s bow and the centre of the lips.
