Makeup Trends at The 2013 VMA's!

Monday, September 02, 2013

This years VMA's are STILL making headlines! The red carpet was actually kind of confusing to watch- some showed up appropriately dressed in fun, flirty, and funky outfits, while others donned dramatic Grammy-esque gowns. I'm all for haute couture but its the VMA's! Ditch the fancy stuff and ave fun with your outfit! Anyways, one trend that I noticed EVERYONE rocking was the 'Au Natural' makeup look. Makeup was kept simple for the most part. Here's how to achieve that no-makeup makeup look:

Step 1: Apply our Mineral Infused Primer to the skin for a flawless, smooth base. Next apply our HD Mattifying Cream Foundation in the shade that best suits you for High-Def coverage. Conceal any imperfections and under eye circles using our Maximum Coverage Concealer in the shade that best suits you.

Step 2: Set the makeup with our High Definition Powder for a pore less, smooth complexion. To add shape to the face, contour and highlight using our Mineral Powder Brush our Warm Bronzer. Apply this across the cheeks for a dewy glow.

Step 3: Set brows into place by filling them in using our Eyebrow Kit. Make sure to fill in any sparse areas and set the brows with our Brow Gel.

Step 4: Keep eyes simple with a simple matte or shimmery skin-toned eyeshadow. Line the eyes with our Cream Eyeliner in 'Black' for definition. Curl lashes and apply mascara. Apply Individual False Lashes for the ultimate natural red carpet look. The lashes and minimal eyeshadow will look absolutely stunning.

Step 5: Finish off the look with a nude or natural lip color. Try our Mineral Lipstick in 'Rosy Raisin' for the perfect neutral lip color and apply our Mineral Lip Gloss in Au Natural over that for some extra sparkle!

What did you guys think of the red carpet at this years VMA's?
