Minimalism and radiance are the key words. Next summer will see natural looks, radiant foundation and fresh textures according to Lynsey Alexander, Head Make Up Artist for N°21. The skilful hand of the makeup artist vanishes to leave room for beauty that has no need for filters but that is enhanced through gentle contrasts, touches of light and warmth on the cheekbones, and the subtle application of lip balm.

At the heart of a natural look is makeup, of course, even if at first glance you wouldn’t say so. Here are the basic steps:
-use PRIME & FIX REFRESHING MIST, a spray that will help to prepare your skin for the application of makeup and increase its hold.
-Apply Hydra Pro Glow to the face, a sublime moisturising, brightening effect cream with hyaluronic acid: it recharges the skin, and gives the complexion vitality and extreme radiance. Specific active ingredients protect it from oxidative stresses.
-At this point, sculpt the face with SCULPTING TOUCH CREAMY STICK CONTOUR, a matte finish stick for facial contouring. Apply and blend below the cheekbones, below the jawline, on the temple by the hair line, on the upper part of the forehead and along the sides of the nose.
-It’s time to highlight: use RADIANT TOUCH CREAMY STICK HIGHLIGHTER to make your face radiant and create targeted points of light. Its soft and creamy texture adheres perfectly to the skin, with excellent colour release and high blendability upon application. Pleasant to the touch, application is easy and precise.
-The finishing touch, a matte finish fixing powder enriched with diamond dust, DARK TREASURE FINISHING POWDER.
The trend is a minimal eye look: leave it all to your eyebrows.
-With the PRECISION EYEBROW PENCIL you can define, accentuate or outline your eyebrows in a super-precise way: it has a rigid formula and an included separating brush. It is long-lasting, has a fine tip and a natural result.
-For your lashes choose SMART COLOUR MASCARA, in shades #4 and #6.
You just need a coat of balm on your lips to dress them up. With Coloured Balm #02, with one single gesture you can add a gentle touch of colour to your lips, which will be kept soft, moisturised and glossy.
The inspiration and mood of the look
"It all revolves around the skin, which is so fresh and radiant it creates a wet look"
