This Easy Makeup Look Highlights Your Natural Beauty
Southern girls know beauty, and Mississippi native Kathleen Barnes of Carrie Bradshaw Lied has it down pat. Although the lifestyle blogger now lives in California, the classics of Southern style and beauty still come into play when she puts on her everyday makeup. We teamed up with Kathleen to share her everyday makeup look, which is one that highlights her natural beauty while still being flexible enough to bring the look from day to night.
She uses ten products daily for what she calls "an easy, attainable, not-too-fancy" makeup look. First up, she uses a tinted moisturizer to nourish her skin. Then, she turns to an under-eye concealer to mask dark circles, and lightly blends that with a beauty blender. Once your complexion is even, seal with a translucent powder. "It's really light, it kind of just sets everything so you're not too shiny; you don't feel oily."
Next comes the brows – Kathleen uses a brow pencil that makes definition easy. She uses short strokes and brushes out her brows with the spoolie end. On her eyes, she picked an easy palette with a variety of colors, "so you're able to use it for an all-over eye look, as well as crease or shadow so you get everything in one." A little bronzer and blush give some color to her skin, and a few coats of a good mascara – she uses Marc Jacobs – dramatizes her eyes. As all Southern gals know – the more lashes the better! For a final touch, Kathleen swipes on a little lip color.
With this subtle look from Carrie Bradshaw Lied, you'll be out the door in no time!
