Since the rest of the look was quite minimal, I did opt for a fuller-coverage, flawless base. I created that canvas using Revlon ColourStay Liquid Makeup in Buff, BeneFit Fake-Up under the eyes, and MAC Select Cover-Up NC20 on any redness peeking through.
To add some dimension, I created a subtle contour with Inglot's HD Sculpting Powder #504 underneath my cheekbones and along my jawline and popped in some glow using the amazingly beautiful RMS Living Luminizer on the top of my cheeks and down the bridge of my nose. For a gentle touch of colour on my cheeks, I swept a light wash of Inglot Fusion Blush & Illuminator #402, a lovely coral gold, on the apples of my cheeks.
To finish things off, I defined brows with my trusty Anastasia Brow Powder Duo in Taupe and added a few generous coats of volumizing black mascara, Clinique High Impact. I then treated my pout with the most refreshing lip treat of all time, Hevea Spearmint Rosemary Lip Balm, and fini!

And a few more shots of the look:
While a look like this isn't in my typical comfort zone, it is ultra refreshing to sport an au naturel look once in a while. Kind of fun to just let my brows and lashes do the talking!
