A new year means new beauty trends—and 2014 is turning it up a few notches with pops of bright color, gilded lids, and glowing skin. Think simple, fresh looks with a touch of drama and a lot of radiance. Wheater you’re looking for bold, or subtle looks, we’ve got you covered.
Look summertime fine year round with glowing skin. The look is natural, dewy, and fresh, with lots of highlight. To add some radiance to your look, use a luminescent foundation primer, replace your blush with a bronzer, and try a highlighter on the high planes of the face and the bridge of the nose. You can also mix an illuminator or small amount of loose shimmer powder with your foundation; apply with a duo fiber brush for an airbrushed finish.
