Get the Look: Rachel Zoe’s Simple Glamour
Let’s be honest—most of us aren’t putting on a full face of makeup for every day at the office or trip to the pet store. Most days, it’s all about looking good without too much fuss. At the Barbara Bui runway presentation at Paris Fashion Week, Rachel Zoe exemplified this idea with a pared-down makeup palette.
1.Go for light coverage.
Fake great skin without a ton of product by using a tinted moisturizer or a blemish balm like Boscia B.B. Cream ($38, Sephora). It lets natural beauty shine through without a ton of cakey coverage. It evens out skin tone, camouflages fine lines, and it’s all you need for everyday.
2.Skip the eye shadow without sacrificing definition.
Use a powder eyeliner like Smashbox Soft Effects Powder Eye Liner in Soft Black ($22, Smashbox.com) to tightly line upper and lower lashes for a more diffused, blended look. Then pump up your lashes (uppers and lowers) using a mascara that amplifies volume and length, like Smashbox Full Exposure Mascara ($19, Smashbox.com).
3.Make lips pop.
One burst of color is all you need to tie this look together. Rachel’s deep, wine-hued lipstick is perfect for her coloring, as well as on-trend for fall. Try Maybelline Superstay 24 Color in Everlasting Wine ($9.99 at drugstores). Or try one of fall’s hot burnt sienna shades, like Laura Mercier Crème Lip Colour in Bing Cherry ($22, Lauramercier.com)
