Welcome to Ask an Expert, a series in which we ask pros in the beauty and fashion biz to give us a video tutorial on one of the many things they're great at.
For this week's episode, Bobbi Brown's Resident Makeup Artist Cassandra Garcia demonstrates how to do the infamously tricky no-makeup-makeup look, otherwise known as Bobbi's "Ultimate Nude Face." The look is simple and pretty, and equally perfect for work or the weekend. Though it takes a few steps, the end result is stunning (and looks effortless, an added bonus.)
Want to give it a try at home? Here's the list of the products that Cassandra used. For face: the Hydrating Face Cream, the Corrector (in Light Bisque), the Creamy Concealer (in Beige), the SPF 15 Tinted Moisturizer (in Light), the Foundation Stick (in Beige), and the Bronzing Powder (in Golden Light).
For eyes, she used the Hydrating Eye Cream, Long-Wear Cream Shadow (in Shore), Long-Wear Gel Eyeliner (in Caviar Ink), and the Everything Mascara, plus the Brow Kit (in Dark). Top it all off with the Creamy Lip Color (in Rose Petal) and the Blush (in Desert Pink).
