Barefaced Beauty: Get the Glow This Summer
No-makeup selfie, anyone? If there was one beauty trend to latch onto from the Spring/Summer 2014 shows, it was the captivating "raw beauty" aesthetic seen on the runway models. Alexander Wang and Balmain kept makeup to a bare minimum, using only concealer where absolutely necessary and letting nature do the work. As Summer is officially here, what could be a better beauty mantra to follow? With festivals and holidays on the horizon, opting for the "less is more" approach saves time and allows sun-kissed skin to shine. Of course, not all of us have a complexion like Rosie Huntington-Whiteley's, which is why looking after your skin from the inside and using products to nourish and nurture are essential aspects of creating a flawless natural look. We've hunted down all of the beauty must haves for showcasing a bare face — from illuminating face masks to gently defining brow gel — so you can ditch the heavy makeup and release your natural beauty.
(Tip: Drink more water — no matter how much you think you consume, it's probably not enough. Glowing skin needs proper hydration.)
