Beauty Trend: Brave a Bare Face

Summer’s brave trend, the bare face is something that both excites and scares us; we all love that clean, no-makeup feeling (especially in the sun), yet fear looking unpolished while out and about.

Well, you don’t have to be a model to rock the look, though it has been spied on 2014 catwalks, on models at Balmain and Alexander McQueen;


See this stunner at Balmain, with her barely-done look…


…While at Alexander McQueen, nude skin and lips came with an additional black spray paint to the forehead – not that we’re suggesting you do that (or rock a medieval helmut) too!

And even Hollywood celebrities seem to have adopted the trend, as we see Scandal star Kerry Washington and Hollywood’s new darling, Lupita Nyongo’ stepping out with the bare-faced look;

Wanting to achieve the look for yourself? It’s simple: moisturise (with an SPF) and go – though you might want to apply a good lip balm to leave lips looking supple and a mascara to define the eyes.

Here’s some of our faves: Burts Bees natural lip balm in “coconut and pear”, yours here for £3.69 and Smashbox’s “Photo Op Eye Brightening Mascara”, £19 and available to buy here;
