Friday Fever - Diane Kruger "No Makeup" Makeup Look

Love Diane Kruger's style! She makes it look so effortless (hate her!). She adores her red lippy but I decided to dedicate this post to her more usual style of keeping it very casual. She has perfected the "No makeup" makeup look that Chanel ladies love so much and if Diane is anything its a Chanel gal!

Just look at her! So here goes nothing..

  • Moisturize your face. You do not want a flaky face for this look.
  • Apply a dewy foundation of your choice. Ensure that you do not mattify (word of the day ladies!) your face too much as it can sometimes age a face. 
  • Conceal as much as you can :) But again, less is more.
  • Highlighting is optional. Highlight your cheekbones, bridge of the nose and your cupid's bow. You wouldn't want to take it any further as it will make you look like a grease monkey. Powder highlights are an oily gal's best friend.
  • Use a sheer rosy blush on the apple's of your cheek and take it all the way up your cheekbones and till your hairline. Remember to blend it well.
  • Now the eyes. Very very minimal. A sheer wash of a nudey pink color (matte or shimmer is left to your liking). Blend a mid-tone sheer brown color into your socket line so that it has some definition. 
  • Line your upper lash line with a brown eyeliner. You can opt for a black one but keep it thin.
  • Coat your lashes with buckets of mascara. It should be spikey and separated. Fake eyelashes are always an option (use wispy ones instead of a full set).
  • Use a rosy or a berry lip stain (moisturize your lips before doing this..again flaky lips are not sexy ladies). 
Let me know if you'll need product recommendations for the above look.
