How To: This look is very simple and wearable, which is precisely the point of the collection: the most essential products that one would need for their makeup bag. I started by applying the lightest shadow shade from lid to brow bone, then I used slate in the crease and a bit under the lower lash line for a very subtle smoky effect. I worked the illuminating powder into my cheek bones and, with my finger, applied onto my brow bones to highlight and lift. I finished with a layer of lip gloss in Troublant which was a bit too matte for the look, so I added Glossimer in Sweet Beige for a shiny nude kick.

Did You Know: You can give your eyes a glossy lid look by dabbing the Glossimer lip gloss on top of the shadows. These neutral colors lend themselves really well to the trend. Try it!

  • All-natural cures using sprays could be substituted with nasal irrigation by pouring
    resolution within the nostril. A neti pot is such a tool.
    It really is a small plastic or ceramic container with a spout, which you pour saline remedy down the nose to clear nasal and sinus passages.
