She’s the queen of the au naturel beauty look, and she pulls it off ever so elegantly. Kendall Jenner’s approach to beauty is based around the ‘less is more’ concept, so we’ve put together an affordable guide to help you with your new ‘effortless’ beauty routine.
Skin is in
Don’t be afraid of baring all when it comes to your face. Gone are the days of full coverage foundation – our skin loves to breathe, so let it. Getting on top of your skincare routine will give you more confidence to embrace the ‘less is more’ motto. A great starting point is clean skin – a good cleanser will remove excess oil, dirt and makeup, we love philosophy purity made simple 3-in-1 cleanser for face and eyes. Next, you want to remove dead cell build-up and even out your skin tone with Alpha-H Liquid Gold. This Glycolic Acid solution is an Adore Beauty best-seller that delivers firmer, smoother skin overnight. You can’t forget about hydration – asap super b complex will renew the skin’s appearance almost immediately, boost collagen production and reduce the appearance of pigmentation.
Invest in a tint
A tinted moisturiser may be your new best friend. It provides hydration, and a touch of healthy colour to your skin, without congesting pores. We love Bobbi Brown SPF 15 Tinted Moisturizer. To add a little bit of extra coverage, or a matte finish, top with a dusting of Inika Mineral Powder Foundation. This mineral powder can double as a concealer and is suitable for acne-prone and sensitive skin types. Using lightweight formulas like tinted moisturisers, BB and CC creams, as well as mineral powders will help to keep your skin clear and uncongested.
Highlighting will help
If you feel like your skin is looking a little dull, apply your highlighter above your cheekbones, on your brow bone under your brows, your Cupid’s Bow, and down the bridge of your nose. The pearlised illuminators in the highlighter will be picked up whenever light hits these areas of your face, giving you a healthy-looking glow. One of our favourite highlighters is BECCA Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed.
Pamper your pout
Dry, chapped lips are not flattering! Layering your lips with a hydrating, slightly tinted balm or gloss like Clarins Instant Light Lip Balm Perfector. The winter months can be particularly cruel on our delicate lip area, so extra protection from the elements is a must. La Roche-Posay Cicaplast Levres Barrier Repairing Lip Balm should do the trick.
