BEAUTY BREAKDOWN: Natural Skin, Bold Lip

Let me start this post by saying that Cleo our model had fantastic skin and really awesome brows so that made my life pretty easy with this look!  I had no patience and started working on getting her skin glowing right away.  I wanted to enhance that and balance the look with a bold lip, which I think works well with her hair, brows, and minimal product on the eyes. A light contour with only foundation added just enough dimension to her face.



  • Face Atelier Ultra Foundation in #8 and #10 applied with a Beauty Blender
  • Dot #10 around the perimeter of the face and along the cheek contour, dot #8 down the center of the face and blend with the Beauty Blender
  • Apply Cinema Secrets (5-in-1 Foundation Palette in the 200 series) as concealer for fuller coverage just under the eye and across the eyelid
  • Set under eye, eyelid, brows and around the nose with RCMA No Colour Powder, leaving the rest of the skin un-powdered to maintain the glow from the Face Atelier Foundation
  • Use RCMA Cream Blush in CTV and CC#2 applied with a Beauty Blusher, do not set with powder



  • Use Beauty Blender with a bit of Face Atelier foundation on it to neutralize colour on the lips
  • Apply L'Oreal Infallible Lip Paints in DIY Red and Orange Envy (can be mixed on a palette before hand or layered on the lips)


That's it for this look! Don't forget to tag me if you try this on yourselves or any of your clients!
