What are your favorite natural beauty trends this season?

I am loving the bright blue eye looks. This is easily done by swiping a bright blue or turquoise eyeshadow or eyeliner either on the lower lash line or as liner on the top lid. Just choosing one keeps it fresh and not so 80’s.  If bold isn’t your jam, the monochromatic look is also trending. To achieve this look you just need a multi-stick like W3LL People’s Multi Use Cream Sticks and use on the eyes, cheeks and lips. 
 
What’s the key to achieving all-natural beauty?
For the most natural look, it starts with the skin. We aren’t all blessed with flawless skin, but it is still possible to perfect flawless skin without looking like you’re wearing cakey foundation. Choose the lightest coverage that you feel comfortable wearing. On top of that, I like to choose either playing up the eyes or lips – not both. No matter which you choose, add a dab of highlighter on the cheek bones. I find that RMS Living Luminzer just looks like glowing skin, rather than an eye catching highlight. 
 
Take us through your typical beauty routine.
Now that I have a newborn, my typical beauty routine is super quick! I apply:
1. Foundation. I love the Gressa Serum Foundation and the 100% Pure Bamboo Blur Tinted Moisturizer. Both have an amazing light feel on the skin. They make my skin look even and glow-y, but not like I’m obviously wearing foundation. 
2. Powder. I set my face with W3LL People Bio Brightener Powder to keep my foundation from fading. 
3. Blush. A quick swipe of Antonym Blush in Peach gives the perfect amount of color. 
4. Bronzer. I bronze my cheekbones and forehead with Nu Evolution Bronzer. 
5. Brows.  Just a quick brush through of the 100% Pure Brow Builder’s mini mascara type wand will do the trick. 
6. Eyeshadow. I usually just use one shade of eyeshadow these days and blend all over the lid and up through the crease. My go to lately is Root Pretty’s Truffle. 
7. Eyeliner. I tightline my top lashes with Antonym Brown Eyeliner and call it a day. 
8. Mascara is a must! My all time favorite is Lily Lolo. 
9. Lips. I finish my look with a lip color. This summer I’ve been reaching for the Henne Tinted Lip Balms, Au Naturale Lip Stains and Honest Beauty Lip Crayons. 
 
It looks like a lot of steps laid out on paper, but it takes me under 7 minutes. 
 
When you think of natural summer beauty, what comes to mind?
Effortless hair, a pop of coral on lips and dewey, bronzed skin.
