With regard to beauty, the “au naturel” look has never been more popular. Romantic makeup tones — think soft, pale blushes and subtle yet radiant nudes — paired with loose chignons and flowy, boho-chic fashions dominated the spring 2017 runway collections, proving that barely there beauty is anything but boring. Here’s how to source the look locally.

TIPS AND TRICKS FROM SARAH POWERS OF LASH BOUTIQUE

• To achieve what Powers calls a “superb natural glow,” try BECCA Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed Highlighter. “Dust lightly on the high points of your cheek bones for a radiant look,” she adds.

• Say goodbye to cakey makeup with BECCA Aqua Luminous Perfecting Foundation. “(It’s) a light, buildable liquid foundation that imparts subtle luminosity with a weightless feel,” says Powers.

• Crave dramatic lashes? Then try the Kevyn Aucoin The Expert Mascara, which Powers says lifts, lengthens and volumizes for the ultimate lashes. “Do the ‘sweeping’ mascara technique of outward and upward,” she recommends. “The arched topside thickens and separates, (and the) defined underside lifts and lengthens.”

• “Luminous and sophisticated color combinations elevate any

look from subtle and demure to full-on glamour,” says Powers of the Kevyn Aucoin The Eye Shadow Duo. “(The) new formula features micronized powder pigments and pearls for a super smooth application.”
