Beige--but Not Boring!
With Hollywood full of bright, bold lips and slick, smoky eyes, it's easy to forget about the basics. But a barely-there face dominated spring runways, including shows like Tory Burch and Thakoon, and a few Hollywood tastemakers, like Sienna Miller, have embraced flawless-but-colorless makeup on the red carpet. Conclusion? Beige can be the opposite of boring when done right. The delicate shimmer of a bisque highlighter can enhance your bone structure, a sand eye pencil makes eyes appear brighter, and a pinkish-beige nail lacquer adds immediate polish. Turns out neutral's a necessity this season. 1. Buxom Divine Goddess Luminizer ($28) 2. Stila Eye Shadow ($18) in Kitten 3. NARS Highlighting Blush ($29) in Satellite of Love 4.
