Sure, it would be great if you could glitter and gleam 24/7 -- but some occasions call for subtle, fresh-faced makeup. When you need a style that's low-key yet lovely, barely-there makeup looks beautiful without even trying. Go for sheer makeup in shades that look perfectly natural on your skin. If you have a cappuccino complexion -- light brown skin with warm yellow undertones -- choose softly radiant makeup that lets your natural warmth shine through.
Opt for a lightweight liquid foundation. A sheer liquid formula provides a fresh-faced, natural look. To flatter your cappuccino complexion, choose a yellow-based shade with soft golden-orange undertones. It will blend perfectly into your warm brown skin.
Look for a sheer highlighting powder with rosy-bronze tones. Swept over your cheeks and lids, it gives your cappuccino complexion a sunny radiance. Choose a product that’s softly shimmering – not super sparkly – to keep the look natural.
Select a creamy chocolate or coffee brown eyeliner pencil for subtly defining those pretty peepers of yours. Lush up your lashes with an inky-black mascara – your complexion is too rich for those softer brownish mascaras.
Choose a cream blush to give your cheeks a healthy, sexy rosiness. Cream formulas pack more pigment than powder blushes, so they show up better on darker skin tones. A deep apricot or terracotta hue brings out the natural warmth in your complexion.
Finish your bare-but-better look with a creamy lip tint. Shades with golden-pink undertones in a bronze, caramel or maple base give your pout that just-kissed flush.
