More and more stars are foregoing heavy layers of makeup to show off their naturally glowy skin and dispel the idea that young girls should be trying to emulate the heavily made up images they see in magazines, and Gisele Bünchen is joining the ranks in a major way. She appeared nearly makeup-free on the Autumn/Winter cover of British fashion magazine Pop with her naked skin on full display, freckles and all. The "no-makeup makeup" or "natural makeup" look has been on the rise lately, likely to balance out the boom in extreme contouring techniques: clown contouring, henna contouring, and so on. And we are grateful. If we can get away with only a little moisturizer, natural cheek and lip color, and a dash of illuminator, we're trimming down our everyday makeup routines.
Of course, not all of us have flawless skin like a Brazilian supermodel, so a little more makeup might be in order (you can still go light and natural though for an off-duty model look). But it's nice to know that quick and easy is in style this season.
